@inventroom Thanks for playing! It is good feedback watching someone else play :)

@OverHookGames My first version of the air attack was the player swinging the hammer in a direction and sort of dashing 45 degrees with the momentum of the hammer. It was a bit awkward though so I changed it so the air attack basically works as a mini double jump mechanic.
@wonderingmonster Thanks! I'm an audio engineer by trade so sfx/music is more up my alley. It is still quite hard to make a great music composition in a short amount of time though! The howto was literally made 10 minutes before submitting the project! Which is why it looks pretty bad (exported with anti-aliasing on the text :[ ). It is definitely something I will overhaul if I update the project. I will also probably add more input support, so the up key would indeed jump hah. I was definitely cramming towards the end of the jam!
@Dija Studios there actually is screen wrapping! I didn't get a chance to fully implement controller support / different keyboard input layouts. I ran out of time! The slam ability can be quite effective if used in the right circumstance. The melee attack combo has longer delay after finishing the 3 hit combo that resets the attack combo. It was intended so you couldn't just spam melee attacks. However, I'm open to adjusting the feel/timings of attacks if I update this jam!
@Ps7cho what keyboard controls would you like to see? There doesn't really seem to be a standard across platformers. Right now it's arrow keys, space, X, and Z (A and D also work instead of arrow keys). To me at least, having X and Z gives easy access to shift and space which can be used for jumps and dashes. I've seen A and S as the main two buttons as well.
Thanks for the feedback! The instant death was definitely intended. Since there is only one level, the purpose of the entire game is to complete the challenge. It's designed to be relentless! However, I hope the gameplay and mechanics are fun enough that the challenge isn't too off putting or frustrating. It's almost like a platformer-mechanic trainer :] . There are quirks to the mechanics that can help, like using the slam ability at the right time to save yourself in a sticky situation. The input for the slam is instantly available (if not attacking) so you can quickly attack > slam. My other tip is to not ignore enemies and quickly dispose of them with a smack to the face. Avoiding the enemies results in increased difficulty as more and more spawn.
Thanks! It is quite difficult ,but its in the same vein of super crate box and relentless onslaughts of enemies! Its part of the fun :D However, I am working on a post jam release of this game that tightens up the mechanics to be a bit more responsive and accurate which makes things a tiny bit easier. Keep an eye out for it in the next week or two!
