Greetings! We are Overburdened, comprised of Daniel Duarte, Rachel Enzie, and Andreea Rotaru-Barac.
This is our game, DARF, where you take control of a cute, green creature whose job is to turn the sad, purple world into a happy, green place!
The gameplay controls are very simple!
– Use the LEFT and RIGHT arrow keys to move.
– Use the UP arrow key to jump.
When you move over the purple blocks, they automatically change to green. Try to change them as fast as possible! Your score depends on the time you finish! A lower time means a higher score.
Additionally, enemies and hazards will obstruct your path. Try to avoid touching them! If you do, you are sent back to the beginning.
If you think you are stuck and cannot get to a particular block, make use of the WRAP feature, which allows you to appear on the other side of the layout!
Political Punch strives to be a solid and exciting multiplayer fighting game. The game will begin from the title screen where players will be able to choose their fighters and even their levels. Then, the fight will begin and players will have 60 seconds to deal as much damage to their opponent as possible or defeat them before time runs out by reducing their health to 0%. The controls for player 1 are W=Jump, D=Right, A=Left, Z=Special, X=Punch, C=Kick, F=Shield. The controls for player 2 are Up arrow=Jump, Right arrow=Right, Left arrow=Left, Ctrl=Special, “.” =Punch, “,” =Kick, “/” =Shield. The characters will have voices that can be heard throughout the fight when the characters are punching, kicking, getting attacked, etc. Get ready for the general election because Political Punch is making its way to the White House!
Minstrel is a game about an adventurer who uses a magical lute to cast spells. Use the right and left arrow keys to move and the up arrow key to jump, and cast spells using the keys A, S, D, F, G, H, J, and K.
