Pendulum is a difficult, boss-centric beat 'em up with a unique leveling system.
- HOW TO PLAY -
Punch - J / Kick - K / Dodge - L / Interact - SPACE
Your character starts out weak and powerless. Only through dying can you grow strong enough and fast enough to win the encounter. After each death, you earn SPIRIT points to spend on your character's four stats. It's up to you how to use your SPIRIT by clicking the arrow buttons next to a stat. But keep an eye on your DOUBT meter! Each DOUBT point chips away at your character until they lose the encounter. There are many different ways to beat Pendulum, so it's up to you to discover the one that fits your play style.
Pendulum started as a project for the #NewJamCity game jam, organized by the Waypoint community forum in July 2017. The concept came from its original title, A Lil' Murder Never Hurt Nobody, which was selected and used for inspiration as part of #NewJamCity's rules.
Pendulum is currently just a small, playable prototype and is still being developed. It would be super helpful if you took a second to leave any feedback you may have.
