A downloadable game for Windows

This game was originally made for the 26th GM48 game jam. This is the post-jam version with some minor changes.

Overview

You and the rest of your kin have been captured and imprisoned by some mean goblins. Luckily the goblins didn't realize that trying to keep you locked down with a ball and chain was a bad idea. Swing the ball around as a weapon to smash prison bars and fight guards, but be careful: It's just as capable of hurting you as it is your enemies.

Controls

Note: The gameplay controls can be reconfigured, these are just the defaults

Tips

The ball will only do damage once it's moving at a decent speed. Running in circles can help to start (and keep) the ball spinning around you. You can also hold the ball in place (press A by default) then run away from it to give it a boost in speed when it's released. Just make sure to move out of the way once it's released so it doesn't hit you.
