A downloadable game for Windows

My (unfinished) entry to a mini jam. Theme was music.

I didn't have enough time to get even close to what I originally planned but this small prototype gives a rough idea. The is controlled in the normal way of a side-scrolling 2D platformer, however you can only jump on the beat of the currently playing song. This means you have to jump the rhythm of the song to progress upwards through the level to the end.

Unfortunately I didn't have time to make even a basic level so an empty room serves as a testing ground.

The plan was to add enemies and the usual platformer gameplay mechanics where they would only operate (or operate optimally) when used in time with the beat of the song.

I used Corgi Engine for the platformer mechanics.
