Project made for the TeenyTiny DragonRuby MiniGameJam.

Little project that I made while learning how to use the DragonRuby game engine.

Click in the ghosts to banish them and protect the mage, helping him reach the youth potion. Be wary of the cooldown: when the staff is dark the magic will not work and you will have to wait more before attacking.

That was nice to play. Makes me wonder what the backstory is.

Thanks for playing!

Well, when I was planning the game, I was thinking on a villain that is currently weaj and now is trying to get his powers back. Hm... I may modify the game a little in the near future to add some story.

That would be an interesting story. Who would be the ghosts then?

Hey Creus, sorry for just ignoring your question. For two years...

I was going to create a intro for the game and tell you afterwards. Life happened and I ended stopping the work to focus on other things, and ended forgetting to answer you (sorry). I started working on it again these days and decided to that I will make this game a bigger game, and to not simply put a big intro for a 20 seconds game (It has about 2 minutes). So for now you can see what would be the intro for the game here.

Responding in a more direct way, the ghosts are servants of Nero, the guy that created the potion. Nero was a powerful necromancer and had some hidden temples filled with those servants.

Also, I recently created Sleep Little Dragon, a game related to this one.

Well, that's it. Hope you're well :)

Solid mini-game! I did find a bug if you miss clicking on a ghost, you aren't able to shoot it or any other ghosts. Really atmospheric sounds make this super creepy and fun to play!


Thanks for playing. About the "bug", it's probably because I put a cooldown for the magic ( check the color in the mage staff, and the sound of the magic should be different when it fails).  Now that I think that I didn't put anything informing of the cooldown... my bad 😅, I will review it tomorrow. Sorry for the delay to respond, just saw your comment now 😖

That makes sense! I hope to see more games from you! :3
