Well done finishing the game! The maze approach is a sound choice for a short jam, good catch! I didn't manage to find the chest in 5 minutes though =P Also, you had the same problem I have with GDevelop: the page scrolls when pressing Up/Down, mrthepie's advice of WSAD is something I will definitely consider for my games.  A 5 minutes timer would be a good addition. Keep it up!

Well done for finishing! The movement felt really satisfying actually, so well done for that :D it's been said before, but the arrow keys scrolled the page for me too - not too much of an issue, but definitely something to think about :)

Nice maze game. I found the arrow keys were scrolling the page in my browser so an alternate control scheme like WASD would have been nice.

I didn't think about that until after to uploaded it, unfortunately. Thanks for the feedback!

I like it!  It reminded me of playing Adventure on the Atari 2600.  Very respectable first game, and not bad at all for 4 hours' work!

Thank you!
