Great idea with combos keeping you alive! I had fun playing it, wish it was longer than 3 levels! You could add more sounds and with jumping you could try changing velocity in nonlinear way so it would feel better. Thanks to this jam I found useful article on that topic which you may like as well: https://chicounity3d.wordpress.com/2014/05/23/how-to-lerp-like-a-pro/

Thank you so much for playing and your feedback. I really appreciate it.

Thank you for the article. I will take a look into it. I plan to make a better version of Sword Combo Rush and the article could be helpful.

Fun to play! I included it in my Game Maker Toolkit’s Game Jam compilation video series, if you’d like to take a look. :)

I like the idea of forcing the player to hurry and take risks to earn gems=time. Fits the theme ^_^

 However, the player moves way too fast to land those jumps. 

 Add a drop shadow.

Thank you for taking the time to play it and to write feedback.

I'll try to add a drop shadow in a improved version and maybe I'll adjust the walking speed to make it a better game.
