The Gizzle Wap and the Terrible Blizzard of Firn is a new side scrolling game in beta testing, so honest feedback is welcome.
25th day of the 12th phase of 18th fade of the constellation Stonefish of the Hallmas Zodiac. (December 25, 2018)
The Feast of Salubria has been cut short by a tremendous blizzard trapping those unfortunate enough to be caught outside under a blanket of heavy snow. (firn)
The council of Sundra called for anyone willing to brave the elements and rescue the survivors
Only two volunteered.
The Gizzle Wap defender of the J’Thanian woods and the Moum Moum, watcher of the Southern shores. The Gizzle Wap offered his ability to dig in the snow and the Moum Moum his keen eyesight. Together they would set up a safe house and search the land bringing anyone they found back to the base.
“Oh brave Gizzle Wap and noble Moum Moum, you do not understand the severity of this storm. The cold and firn vortices will be too much for a shore bird and small creature of the wood. You will not survive through the night.”
“Then we have no time to waste. We must do what we can during the sun’s light.”
You control the Gizzle Wap and the Moum Moum searching for survivors. You can move the Gizzle Wap left and right and the Moum Moum will follow. Press the joystick up to make the Gizzle Wap jump and the Moum Moum will flap. Press the fire button to dig in the snow. When you have a Salubrious stone you can pull down on the joystick to activate it’s ability.
Scan the area while avoiding firn vorticies and listen for the Moum Moum to sing (tu rah lu rah lu) and dig where he sings. Something will be buried there. Note: the Moum Moum will not sing if he is too high in the air or too low to the ground. You must find that sweet spot in between.
When you unearth a creature you will need to deal with it accordingly. (see beastiary ) The ones that need rescuing the Moum Moum will carry off to safety. Others you might need to rebury. Rescue enough creatures and you will see a star in the sky. A Paladin will drop a map. Pick up the map and it will lead you to the boss.
Pay close attention to your life bars. The Moum Moum’s life is on the left and Gizzle Wap’s is on the right. If either of them reach zero the game will be over. If you take too long and the day turns to night the pair will take extra damage until one or the other expires.
To replenish your health you must forage for food. Fortunately one of the customs of The Feast of Salubria is to bury food and gifts under trees. Dig at the base of a tree to unearth a gift. Not all trees will have things buried there.
Defeat the boss and move on to the next day.
The riddle of the Fraez:
Each boss you defeat will leave a clue to the riddle. There are 7 clues. The last one can be seen in the sky.
