Fun idea for a one room game. Though I'd have liked it if the enemies were just a tad slower, when I was losing hp it was pretty hard to keep a streak going.

Very well-made, fun game!

Though just to let you know, I encountered a bug while I tried pressing x next to a wall (and possibly during collision with an enemy while at low health at the same time? I'm not sure):

"runtime error
line 733: attempt to index global 'player' (a nil value)"

Nothing major, I just got unlucky and I think I was basically dead on that frame anyway.

Hi, thank you!

Yes I can confirm that you died there, that's what caused the crash. Dying right when changing rooms is not something I anticipated at all. I'll fix this, thanks for reporting!

This is a decent game. It's fun, but after the small tutorial part, I was confused at why X wasn't doing anything. I soon figured out that the squares needed to be illuminated to be able to use it. Maybe some more direction may help.

now that's a good game

When I hold down the arrow keys and press x nothing happens?

That's strange. You only need to hold one arrow key and then press 'x' so maybe try that? Pressing all the arrows should have worked too... :/

Really fun game!
