Royal Pain is a platformer game where you rescue the Princess and then need to escort her out of the castle using her abilities to help you get past enemies. For example, press X to tell the princess to do a hair whip attack when she can see a guard.

Our goal in this game is to make interesting NPC interactions and we will be adding more princesses with more abilities in future updates. Enjoy our WIP release of Royal Pain on Pico-8! Feedback is welcome.

Demo version 07

Friendly fire, more guards, and various bug fixes.

this is really good. i hope you keep developing it. the movement feels good and the interaction with the princess can make navigating the environment an interesting puzzle.

the only things i didn't like were how easy it is to accidentally climb the walls (i think it would be easier to control if you had to hold towards the wall and up to start climbing), and some of the enemy placements near ladders. the combat with the princess works pretty well, but the hitbox is hard to understand since the sprite looks like a horizontal attack, so when there are enemies above and below it can be hard to judge.

@mrjorts thanks for the feedback! We made some changes based on yours and some others recommendations and they will be in the next version of the demo. Hope you get a chance to play the next one!
