HTML5 Göldun - A fauxmicom game


Hello! I wanted to share a game me my friend made during a Game Jam (NES Jam by NEStalgia Podcast) on last week!

It's an action platformer that draws inspiration from from games such as Castlevania, Ghosts and Goblins. Ias mentioned it's a fauxmicom game, meaning it tries to resemble a Famicom, or NES game. Once you try it you'll realise that it obviously isn't heeding the limitations of an actual NES, but it's close enough for nostalgia, at least so I hope :)

You can play game in the browser or download it here:


Smooth control and animation, good music and character design.

Kinda wish I could throw upward / get the dudes who throw downwards / diagonal at me.


How was that effect with fade-in/fade-off was made in intro? It's a shader which removes some colors, or they are just a separate sprites? It's a good piece of art and work!
