Title: Got A Light? [Minimalistic Jam] [warning: violence]

Hi, everyone.
Here is an experimental side-scroller that we have made based on S03E08 of Twin Peaks.

I'm so going to play this after I watch the new series, to avoid spoilers. But anything Twin Peaks related grabs my immediate attention!

TMA: Won't find out until this coming Sunday evening. Until then, we're playing and rating the other games in the jam. I recommend checking them out, they're all pretty good!

this is way more addictive than the light you ask people for before sucking out their brains. or do their heads explode? Or do you suck their soul, their internal light? I got 114000 points for headsplodsucking! yay! Then the game got really interesting but I lost. Is there an end to the game or is it just getting faster and smaller hitzones?

There is a definitive ending to the game.

I don't think he is sucking out their soul. He seems to be crushing their skulls.
For what purpose? I have no idea.

The game is based on these two scenes from S3E8:
1: Highway (https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=sLPi19uaGiY)
2: Radio Station (https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=mFFR2Gye-nc)

One little tip: if you successfully headsplodesuck 3 people in a row, you refill 1 HP.

I can't remember what the maximum score is. Was working on making high scores persistent but I ran out of time.
