Note: Please play the XPHF version for a much reasonable experience! It contains several patches regarding the game jam release.
Gather as much souls as you can with Yuuka's sunflowers! Shoot and kill Japanese Goblins to gain their souls!
Yuuka's Defense for Sunflowers (優香のひまわりの守り) is a short, action shooter platformer game wherein the player plays as Yuuka Kazami, and the goal is to gather as much souls within the given limited time.
Souls can be dropped by slain Japanese Goblins, and these pesky creatures (as what Yuuka describes them as) can be killed by shooting sunflowers towards them. Yuuka can also switch between chibi and dekai forms which changes the play style.
|A ||move left|
|D ||move right|
|W||jump, use again for double jump; varies depending on Yuuka's size|
|K||shoot bullets; the bullet's size and power depends on Yuuka's form|
|U||switch to chibi form: small and fast but with low jump and small bullets|
|O||switch to dekai form: tall and slow but with high jump and huge bullets|
- Timer - each game session starts with a 2 minute-timer. This timer can gain additional time when picking up souls.
- Soul - released and dropped by a dead goblin. Adds 5 seconds to the timer.
- Shrine - spawns the goblins. We don't know how and why (only the goblins know).
Thoughts, ideas, and messages regarding the game can be read in the Pastebin or in this Development Log. The only difference between the two is that the updates in Pastebin is always merged while the Development Log's does not.
🎃 A very spooky halloween to all Japanese Goblins. 💀
