An evil wizard turned a young boy called Jack into a toy and cursed him to endlessly wander the floors of a dark tower.
Will Jack find a way to lift the curse and escape from the prison?


The character moves on its own.
Press "Up" to make Jack jump
Press "X" to read hints

As the game progresses, Jack will gain new skills:

  • First skill - hold "Up" to perform a wall jump
  • Second skill - hold "Down" to crouch
  • Last skill - press "Left" or "Right" to dash

What's next?

Pico-8 is a great game making platform but it has its limitations. So the next step would be converting the game into Unity engine. Then we plan to:

  • make a more deep and engaging story
  • put into the game different gameplay ideas that we have in mind
  • go full 3d

We will be glad to receive feedback. Play also Mini Ex Machina

Very nice! The graphics, sounds, and concept are really fun! I was excited to find the new skills of jumping off walls and ducking. I like the limited amount of "spring" that requires you to be careful and duck at the correct moment.

A note: Jack's bouncing walk looks great, but it made it a little difficult to accurately jump at the correct moment. Sometimes it was difficult to see when I was too close to a wall or enemy.

This is really fun, I hope you keep working on this project!
