Free Glitched! (or, Debug Mode: The Game) - Super Game Boy Metroidvania


Glitched! is an "unfinished", intentionally glitchy Metroidvania platformer that you edit as you play.

Move and jump with the arrow keys (or WASD), while using the mouse to place or erase platforms and other objects, filling in missing chunks of level design. You unlock different types of placeable objects by finding treasure chests. There are 20 in all.

Sequence breaking is possible - and encouraged - by exploiting various "glitches". Clip through walls, go out of bounds, level wrap, or just mess up your sprite.

Left, Right / A, D - Move
Up / W - Jump
Left-click - Place object
Right-click - Erase object (you can only erase objects you've unlocked)
Space - Pause, view map
Enter - Restart current room

The main game has a Metroidvania structure with 7 interconnected sub-areas. But there are also extra game modes with linear obstacle courses: Time Trial and Object Trial. (In Object Trial, you have to place as few objects as possible.) Each mode has 10 courses and each course is designed around a specific placeable object.

Made with Game Maker 7. I made the graphics and music myself. The graphics are meant to resemble a Super Game Boy game. Only four colors are used at a time, and the color palette is different for each sub-area. Also has a SGB-style border, which doubles as a HUD. The music is more like a SNES game.
