My 64×64 pixel game for LowRezJam is out, go play it now!
This game is a complete experience with everything from a main menu to a win screen and tons of polish. The gameplay is simple but I invested a lot of time tweaking it to feel awesome. I also recorded 6 news songs for the sound track!
You can play it in just about any web browser, and it supports mouse or gamepad. Have fun!
