Lantern game is a retro style 2D platformer. 

The wizard must feed his froggy friend! To do so he must collect fireflies that also brighten up his lantern. That lantern protects against evil spirits. But beware! Too much light will attract the gnoblins who want to snack on the fireflies! 

Explore the depths of the dark caves and have fun.

Really cute game! Absolutely adore the wizard's character design! Cannot believe it was made in 24 hours...

Very interesting exploration platformer that forces on-the-spot thinking. Didn't get what the gremlin does, but it (probably) didn't impact my play experience.

Check my video!

very very good game


Hey Dev, I gave it a go!

Here is the clip from my stream: 

Over all, very cool concept and I would love to see more. It is a bit rough around the edges though. I really liked the concept of exploring at night with a lantern that changes the landscape, really nice idea and it is implemented pretty well. The one thing that I think for sure needs improvement is the camera, it is very disorienting and ruins the flow of the game in my opinion, I would just let that follow the player seamlessly around the map if I were you. I think fixing the camera would remove or at least tone down the other issues I had while playing it. Keep up the great work, you have a real winner in the making here!

Cool video! :thumbsup: Thank you for playing the game!

We see a lot of the things like leveldesign you are pointing out and are going to look into fixing that in the future!

It was made in the global game jam (48 hours), that might give a light to why it sometimes looks rough around the edges ;)


Coool !!! Congrats !
