Really interesting game! I included it in my compilation video series of all of the GBJam 5 games, if you'd like to take a look :)


Andrés, sorry to hear. I did not have a Mac to test. Will try to investigate and update the binary once I found a solution.


I can't play on macOS Sierra. Inside the zip there's only a binary file (not .app file) and trying to execute it will open the terminal and say "can't execute binary file"


Saw the devlog thread with your mockup and wanted to see the finished game, and it turned out really great! My only real complaint is that the combat itself is rather boring. Still, you have a very polished vertical slice, just one level that is really well done, instead of a trying to squeeze in a lot of content and having the quality suffer... I hope one day I'll learn to do that too.


Great graphics and mood, loved the texts! well done!


This is great. I thought it was a lot of fun 'kiting' the bad guys haha. Punch in face, run away, punch in face, run away


Nice entry! The writing and artwork is spot on, but the combat felt very shallow: it's basically just "mash z and hope you don't die".

I'm glad I hadn't looked at the screenshots before playing though, it made the reveal a lot funnier!


Keyboard shortcuts (mentioned briefly in the first screen):

SPACE = Start

x = Skip dialog

z = Punch

je n arrive pas à comprendre ce que je dois faire , suis bloquée !!

I almost get killed but yet, survived to the end. I became a panda twice ;-) I'm impressed that this game has been done within a week. A bit annoyed to have to kill people to go through, but this is my motherhood side ;-) I didn't really understand what they have done wrong so I have to kill them. Otherwise, the game is just hard enough for people to want to go further just to check if they will succeed or die before the end. Go on @stateoffgames !


Awesome game! I love these tough guy, "yankee" style beat-em-ups. The music, hairstyle and one-liners give me a strong Kunio feel, very nice work!


This one of the better games!
