You are trying to run away from the bad, big wolf chasing you right behind while trying to avoid obstacles.
But fear not, there is way to defeat him!

Occasionally, you will find a poison mushroom, throw it in order for him to eat it - but watch out!
You need to avoid the mushroom as well, otherwise you might just end up hurting yourself.

I was planning to comment when I beat the game, but I can't, I tried 10 times but I couldn't ahahaha.

The game is good, in an extended version you could add variety or a more developed story. good job!


To be fair, it did turn out pretty hard! A relative of mine tried for several hours and only sometime at late evening texted me saying "HA! TAKE THIS MR. WOLF, I DID IT." 

Content updates and adding variety are definitley something to consider. The game can only be updated on when the game jam has ended - the first things that will be done are fixing a major bug, add more localization and add an options menu for the sound - just overall make the game more accessible.


Very nice game. The concept was interesting. The hitboxes were difficult to manage at first and it took a while to figure out the right way to use the mushrooms, but it was satisfying to beat the game.


Glad you enjoyed the game, thank you for the feedback!
Also, congratz on beating the wolf!


Cool, plays fluently, responds very tightly to the mouse click, like the slightly new concept of throwing the mushroom. Also nice that I beat it on my first try ;-)



I don't think anyone has beat it on the first try yet - chapeau!
Glad you liked it and thanks for playing :)
