*Updated: Fixed a critical bug that occasionally froze the game at start and after restarting.

WARNING: Prepare to die a lot.

As a traveler you chose the wrong village to visit this time. A terrible curse made all villagers sick and at the very moment you stepped into this land, you were cursed too. Now destroy the source of evil in last 30 days of your life or die!

First try floor 19 score 100.

Second try floor 30 score 157.

Seems like the best strategy is just avoid enemies and run as fast as you can and only grab uncontested items.

Cute game dev!


My score was 106 and floor 21


There doesn't seem to be any use for the coins, I wonder how many people realized you can exit at any time and wander around town to heal up, but going to town costs you 1 day.


I spent too much time already. Great game


My top score is Floor 38 and score 201. Please reply if you have beaten that :)

Oh!  You dirty fat zombie!  I was proceeding so well.  I'm looking forward to completing all the lvls.


In this jam version of the game (and I doubt if there will be another version ever) there is no end to the game, it's just about getting the highest score :) Please share your score with us!

k = a

Cool game


On my macbook air using chrome. A doesn't start the program

Have you tried pressing "K" ?
Button A (gameboy) is mapped to K, button B is mapped to L.


Nice little game.  The having the A/B prompts when the buttons are really K/L is a bit confusing to start and ended up destroying a few items figuring things out.  Also, one time didn't get a sword for a while and another got a ton and didn't know if there is any purpose of collecting more than one.

Thank you for trying it out. When we developed this little game we had really limited time and didn't have time to balance stuff or think thoroughly. I hope you enjoyed it anyway. By the way no, at this state of the game there is no sense in collecting more than one sword :)

Yeah, I enjoyed it once I got the hang of it!  I don't mind a little trial and error but sometimes I wonder if I am missing something—or making the best choices!

hey I reached level 26 score 139!

Wow that's amazing! I think I haven't reached that high level myself :) Thanks for playing!

I have reached floor 42 but I still have not gotten to the boss.
