Here’s my entry for the Game Jam 3.
This game has complex rules. So I will explain it later.
Basically this game resembles Pengo but there’re many differences…

It has all three theme:

Star Plan:
Player has a light saber.
Enemy’s name is Doz Hater. He hates multiples of 12.
So, you need to connect number blocks and make multiples of 12, then you can get bonus.

Kusoge:
Yeah. It is Kusoge of course.

Education:
You can learn Mathematics, especially about adding and multiple.

Hero and Enemy
Hero:
Hero’s name is Juney Walker.
It is from Luke Skywalker, Johnnie Walker(Scotch whisky), Jū-ni(Japanese reading of 12).
Thanks to Mr.Pharap for naming hero.
He has a light saber. He likes multiples of 12.

Enemy:
Enemy’s name is Doz Hater. He hates multiples of 12.

Game Play
D-pad:
Move

D-pad + A:
Thrust a light saber.

Thrust against a number block cause it slide, if the space directly ahead of it is unoccupied by a block or wall.
The block also slides in an oblique direction.

If that space is occupied, you can pick up the block instead.
When you picked up the block and push another direction by D-pad + A, you can move the block to that direction. You can attack enemies by hitting the block.
Then release A, you can put the block in that position.
If another block has been already in the same position, numbers of two blocks are added(mod 10).

Thrust against a wall cause all blocks on the wallside slide.

You can’t thrust againt a enemy. Because he is skilled at fencing.

Connect number blocks and make multiples of 12, then you can get bonus.

Strategy
Multiples of 12 are:
12, 24, 36, 48, 60, 72, 84, 96, 108, …
If you memorize them at least until 60 or so, you can play better.

Making 12 with 2 blocks:
6 + 6
7 + 5
8 + 4
9 + 3

Making 24 with 3 blocks:
8 + 8 + 8
7 + 8 + 9

Making 36 with 4 blocks:
9 + 9 + 9 + 9

Making 12 with 3 blocks:
6 + 6 ->
6 + (5 + 1)
6 + (4 + 2)
6 + (3 + 3)

7 + 5 ->
7 + (4 + 1)
7 + (3 + 2)
(6 + 1) + 5
(5 + 2) + 5
(4 + 3) + 5
