Unleash the Power Within!

Overview: In the mystical realm of Rodentia, darkness looms. The once peaceful land is now plagued by malevolent forces—skeletons, ghosts, and ancient curses. But fear not! Our pint-sized hero, Mickey the Mouse, is ready to embark on an epic quest to restore balance and reclaim the Cryptsmasher—a legendary artifact that holds the key to unimaginable strength.

3. The Cryptsmasher waits:

  • Legends speak of the Cryptsmasher—an ancient and mysterious mask forged by celestial mice to protect the land.

4. Top-Down Action and Otherworldly Powers:

  • When Mickey wields the Cryptsmasher, he gains otherworldly strength and his body changes form to contain it all..
  • Smash obstacles, break through walls, and unleash devastating shockwaves in top-down action segments!

5. Epic Showdowns:

  • Confront the malevolent Lich Ratul, master of necromancy, in a climactic battle.

It's pretty clever to all it Mickey the Mouse :)  Wondering if it keeps Walt's Lawyers away. How many % you consider this game done already?

(1 edit)

Hi there! I'n still in the design phase, playing with the sprites to get them easier to view on the dark backgrounds and working out level maps.

I'd estimate maybe five to ten percent complete at this point. I'm taking my time to make sure it's done right :)

I'll be starting to post regular dev logs soon as well to keep you guys up to date 🐀👻


Cant wait for this
