About the StoryMy first game attempt, a Twine project that hearkens back to the days of LCD handheld games. A short adventurous romp in a fantasy world.
Made for Twiny Jam.

Twine retro beat 'em up, with graphics and music, May 12, 2018
I have to admit, I still haven't beaten it. (Spoiler - click to show)I can't figure out how to defeat the fire demon.
The only reason I'm not giving it five stars is because some of the puzzle solutions are counter-intuitive. (Spoiler - click to show)Instead of attacking the spider, you have to JUMP up to the spider, causing it to drag you to its lair where you find an emerald. Fortunately, emeralds are wizard stuff, leading the wizard to let you into his castle. Obviously, this is part of the intentional retro silliness of the game, but it still makes progress a matter of trial-and-error rather than reasoning.
Contains some gratuitous swearing and meme usage, for those who don't like such things.
Definitely should be played by everyone, if only for the innovation factor.

Games with graphics and/or sound by eyesack
I couldn't find an easy way to search for this, so I figured I'd ask the hivemind: What games use graphics and/or sound to enhance the gameplay, similar to City of Secrets and Necrotic Drift?
