How does your submission match the theme?
My suggestion fits the theme of dual purpose design, because the jump button is linked to several actions. Of course you can jump, but jumping moves the floor limit downwards. So jumping is literally needed to progress the game. No only that, but you can only fire while in the air using the jump button as well, just like Downwell. Shooting downwards while in the air gives you a little jump boost.

Enemies drop ammo when you kill them, so shooting is encouraged. The ammo-drops also kill enemies below you, so you don't have to spam the jump button when there are multiple enemies below you. It's extremely satisfying to see a whole pack of enemies disappear after shooting one of them

Another twist is that you have to shoot heart containers to retrieve a bit of health, so jumping is required for that as well.

In conclusion, you can have a lot of actions performed with just one button. In this case, the jump button.

During the making of PJTF I used:

- Paint.NET for graphics (https://www.getpaint.net/);
- FL Studio for music (https://www.image-line.com/);
- BFXR for sound effects (http://www.bfxr.net/).

Within FL Studio I only used the NES VST plugin by Matt Montag (https://www.mattmontag.com/projects-page/nintendo-vst).

I think the idea is good,but you had 48 h,why not use them to polish the game and some how balance it

I had another game jam this weekend, so I spent 12 hours on Friday to put a little game together just for fun. Thanks!

Fun concept. I think you should polish it more. there are a few bugs and things that should be fixed. You run out of ammo really quickly and there is no way of reloading. this can get you stuck when for instance there is a whole row of blocks accross the whole level.

I agree with BalisticPenguin, great for something made in only 12 hours, but it does have a few problems, but then again, I think pretty much anything made in such a short time is gonna have a few issues.

So great job, dude! And best of luck :D

Pretty well-made for 12 hours, but there were a lot of situations where I ran out of bullets and therefore had no way of getting more. Plus "sticking" to the blocks was pretty annoying.

If I were you I would polish this one a bit more before entering it, but other than that, good game.

I've noticed that there is what I believe to be a bug where the player gets stuck in a block, other than that, this game is quite fun.

It's actually pretty fun.
