Skulldude doesn't remember much, he just feels a deep soul-burning hatred towards the slimes. Help him unleash his wrath as he storms the slimes' dungeon increasing his fiery power as he goes.

Controls:

  • <z> - shoot fire, hold to auto-fire and move slow
  • <x> - dash forward/become invulnerable for a little bit
  • arrow keys/d-pad - move around

Tips:

  • Dashing can go through enemies and their bullets. Learn to use it well, it's critical during boss fights.
  • Finishing all enemies in a room makes that room cleared even if you die.
  • Look for suspicious pixels on the map to find secrets.
  • The game can be finished in less than 10 minutes, how fast can you do it?

Features:

  • a flaming skull dude
  • 32 rooms filled with lots of slimes, power-ups and secrets
  • 4 boss fights
  • lot of bullets

This is my entry to the #3cjam, it was a lot of fun working on it. Special thanks to enargy for organizing it and the rest of the pico-8 community for being all around plain awesome!

In case it's not obvious, the original Zelda was the main influence making this game.

Enjoy and please don't heasitate to send feedback my way!

Update 1.01 (11/9/2017):

  • upgrade menu now waits a second before a selection can be made, should avoid accidental selections
  • unreachable pickup orbs are now persisted between sessions
  • front end doesn't go crazy anymore after a little while

Another solid title, man. You've got quite the list now. Time to release a collector's edition bundle :)

Thanks everyone!

@MBoffin I just watched your run... I liked how you progressively learned to use the dash to your advantage in different situations. There are a few little secrets you missed here and there but overall pretty good run (I was actually cheering for you on that last boss fight :D).

Haha, yeah, I was pretty tired. Notice how quiet I was while playing after a bit? Right after that, I fell asleep for 4 hours. :D I'll have to try again soon.

Okay, I just had another go and this time noticed all the little secrets! :D Didn't get shorter time, but way fewer deaths and 100%'ed my stats. :D

Awesome! BTW, someone on Twitter finished it under 4 minutes! Try and beat that! :D

Haha, I don't think I can beat 4 minutes, but I did finish with only 1 death! :D
