The one bouncing crown idea was very clever use of a projectile! Your art style is also very cool too, good job making this in just 48hours!  If you have the motivation keep working on it after the jam~  could make an interesting story with this character!  Please check out my entry if you have time, good day!

Interesting and fun one-bullet game! I also had issue of dying instantly when enemy spawns on my location. An indicator that shows where your crown is when it's going of screen would be handy because I lost often because I could get my crown back in time :p

Nice game!

Love the creepy atmosphere. It works very well.

The crown throw is simple and addictive. I think it's easier to throw it horizontally in your level design because it's easier to predict the movements.

Good job! :D

Cool drawings and theme! Also the mechanic is pretty nice - lost my cown one time too often to survive :D 

Can you also rate my game?

Great fun game! And a real challenge too! Great job! It would be cool if there was something that you could get; Perhaps an upgrade that you get later on in the game which allows you to instantly snap back the crown, and some UI to indicate where the crown is.
Well done at making this in 48 hours! you done an amazing job and I think you deserve more ratings!
And like @Weslito said, I think a really cool story could be made from this!

Check out our game if you haven't I would really appreciate it!

Fun game, I wanted to collect gold with my crown first, then the enemies arrived on screen. 

The character is a bit slow but maybe it's intented given he is pretty old.

I'd like you see how you could build up a story and expand the world.

Nice job! Really feels polished for a jam game, and the mechanics are fun. I know the king is meant to be old and slow, but this makes retrieving the crown hard and frustrating sometimes. Great game though!

This game's certainly got a nice, creepy atmosphere, and the mechanics feel good. At first I thought you were supposed to try & grab as much gold as possible with the crown rather than survive, but after that I did pretty well. King moves a bit slow for my tastes and getting the crown back once you throw it is difficult as a result. Not a bad game overall.

Great polish and feel on the game, the one bullet mechnics are used plenty of times but this execution is very good, some minor complaits: sometimes the enemy spawns right next to me and I died instantly.

Nice game with a really polished feel! I love the menu sound effects when hoovering over the buttons! The gameplay is nice, but a little bit boring after a while. It would be great if there were more enemies or if the player could dash. However it is a nice game!

Seen this kind of idea a few times - but having the player fail if they take too long retreiving the crown sets this apart. Makes firing a much more tactical and considered action. Cool stuff!

A pretty usual concept, but with peculiar realisation, as I like how the crown moves and how  you limit the time without the crown.

First of all, the art and sound is amazing and sets a very clear atmosphere for the game. 

But I also really like the mechanics in the games and design choices you've made. In particular, I like the idea of that you lose if you don't pick your crown up fast enough - this forces you to plan your moves and think ahead instead of just blindly throwing it at the closest enemy. It's also very satisfactory when you place a well thought-out throw and you manage to take out a line of enemies while perfectly catching the crown with a dash. 

I enjoyed playing the game and it definitely shows potential.

Thank you

Great little game. The concept of the king dying if he can not catch his crown again is really cool. 

Submitted(+1)

Great atmosphere, controls were perfect weight to be believably controlling an old man, sounds were really pretty.

Developer

Thank you very much!

The game is a great concept, and I would love to see where you take it.  For now though, I had a little trouble retrieving my crown, and I wish there was a bit more variety. Overall, Good game!

Very interesting mechanic for 'one bullet' styled-mechanic. Maybe different enemies and items could help the game shine even more!

Good job :) ! Really liked the art style and general atmosphere.
Catching the crown was pretty hard, but fun :)

Hi! Your art was my main inspiration! It is amazing. I have never made anything 2d myself until this jam. Thanks for feedback
