I had a little more time for the second jam and made a platformer called Unchain.

Collect all the golden chain segments and make your way to the exit.
Avoid the robotnics at all cost! Maybe you find some blue energeticon balls, to blast them into bits.

Capture the flag to mark a safe point.

Left/Right - walking
Up - Jumping
X - run/hang/slide down
Y - shoot

It takes a bit of practice to master the jump/hang/jump again. Like in the real world!

Really wanted to make something out of the basecode I wrote for fanzine #2.
There is plenty of things to add, better in game music, more types of robots and the cage with the princess (that needs all the chain pieces to abseil her from the ceiling)!
Well, I might get to that at a later point.

I've improved upon that, but to not mess up with the jam, I've put it in another thread...

Find it here:
Unchain - post jam version

Very nice game - I wasn't able to figure out how to run/hang/slide, so I had to hack the cart apart to get further. Very cool game!

Thanks! Maybe I should explain that a bit better.

You walk left/right with the cursors.
Up lets you jump (up right/left)

if you press X while walking you will run!
If you jump against a wall running and hold X, you will cling to the wall (slowly sliding down).
From that you can jump again to flip flop up a higher ridge.

Quite challenging, it seemed. I included it in my Pico-8 Jam #2 compilation video series, if you’d like to take a look :)
