Use of the limitation
I included it as a timer that starts at 45 seconds and can get increased if the player is able to perfectly charge their hammer with the lightning and even more if they are able to slam it down into an attack. There may be more updates if I have the strength to for adding enemies for additional time and fixes to the code that are not present at this stage.

Cookies eaten
honestly four packs of four oreos which would be 16 cookies (i was stressed on the last day too much stuff didn't work im sorry)

Nice presentation but I don't know why in my computer, I can't see the lightning like in your gif, I can only hear the sound of thunder and a few seconds later I die.


it looks like this. is this normal?


Hmm, I'm not sure why this could be the case. It strangely shows the glow from the lightning strike instantiated into the scene but not the actual sprite. I'm sorry this happened to you, could just be a problem on my end for using exporting it in Forward+ so I could use glow (Godot 4.2 doesn't let you export a game to be played in browser mode with glow). I currently don't have a fix because this is genuinely something I never thought could happen but thanks for voicing your concern. I'll be taking this into account now and next time I make a game for a jam using Godot.


Nice game! I liked the sense of speed and the sound effects!


Thanks so much!


Very fun Playing this game, Music is so much awesome


Thank you so much, the song is Thrash Metal Instrumental - Death Sentence. I'll be updating the game later and the game page so that all the links with the assets borrowed will be properly credited (I literally had to submit this in an undownloadable state just to get it in on time)


Pretty cool game, I don't really get what you had to do unfortunately :P I was just running around and spamming left and right mouse, and then randomly dying. Still fun though! Music was very empowering hehe


I'll include it in the screenshots and maybe I'll be able to update it with a tutorial before tmrw so that players will be able to figure out how to play the game easier. Sorry, that's on me. Appreciate you took the time to try it out though!


It would be useful if you put a little tutorial in description or inside the game, or maybe I'm too stupid. 


fair enough, that's on me. I'll include it in the screenshots as gifs so it's easier to understand (note that this was derivative of another idea I had for the game but couldn't make it work)
