Built in 72 hours from the prompt: <em>&quot;The more you have, the worse it is.&quot;</em></p> <p><strong>You are a curse collector!</strong> Your goal is to slay witches to get them to curse you. But the more curses you have, the harder (and overall just sorta crazier) the game gets.</p> <p><strong>Arrow keys:</strong> move<br /> <strong>Z:</strong> attack</p> <p>Try to slay the witch on the other side of the screen. Each witch you slay will curse you. Keep going for as long as you can!</p> <p>No sound, very little game balance, just a prototype built from a weird idea for a reverse roguelike.</p> Mon, 04 Dec 2017 17:27:14 UTC 8 Legs to Love <p> <table><tr><td> <a href="/bbs/?pid=41423#p"> <img src="/bbs/thumbs/pico41422.png" style="height:256px"></a> </td><td width=10></td><td valign=top> <a href="/bbs/?pid=41423#p"> 8 Legs to Love</a><br><br> by <a href="/bbs/?uid=16414"> bridgs</a> <br><br><br> <a href="/bbs/?pid=41423#p"> [Click to Play]</a> </td></tr></table> </p> <p><strong>Goal</strong><br /> Spin a web, eat bugs, earn points, and have fun!</p> <p>8 Legs to Love is separated into six levels of just over two minutes each.
