UPDATE 2/23/16: Added Gamepad controls! Let me know if they cause any problems :)

Rough & Tumble was made in about a week for GBJam 4! Guide bounty huntin' robot Tumbleweed through the wild west in pursuit of the Roughhouse Gang!

Gamepad Controls:

  • Start button to Start/Restart
  • Left Analog Stick/D-Pad to move
  • X button to shoot
  • A button to jump
  • Up to interact (climb ladders/enter doors/talk to NPCs)
  • Double tap down to drop through (most) platforms

Keyboard Controls:

  • Spacebar to Start/Restart
  • Arrows to move
  • Z to shoot
  • X to jump
  • Up arrow to interact (climb ladders/enter doors/talk to NPCs)
  • Double tap down arrow to drop through (most) platforms

Help Tumbleweed take down the Roughhouse Gang in this robot western platformer, originally created for GBJam 4! You can see how the game did on its GameJolt voting results page.

Unfortunately, we didn't have time to finish more than the first level for the jam version, but there are some secrets to be found if you want a peek at what could have been. ❤️
