Game Mechanics

  • Little Spy can run and jump. Holding jump extends the jump height.
  • Little Spy is a climber. They can grab walls and slide down them, jump climb up

them or wall jump away from them.

  • Like all the best spies, Little Spy has a gadget; a parachute that can stow and

deploy itself.

  • Little Spy has a killer flying kick, which can be used to dash, attack enemies

or double jump.

  • Little Spy can use all of these skills in combination.

The enemies

Enemies can be stomped or kicked:

  • Guards (no helmet) require 1 hit to kill.
  • Soldiers (helmets) require 2 hits to kill.

Enemies have teleport technology and new recruits will teleport into the game to replace their fallen comrades.

My First Game Jam: Summer 2021

Little Spy was made in two weeks as my entry in the My First Game Jam: Summer 2021. I used the jam as motivation to learn Godot.

The theme for the jam was ✨Free✨. My interpretation of the theme is to create a game using only tools that are free software, free of cost, or game assets that are free or in the public domain.

In keeping with the Free theme, I have released the game project and code under an MIT license.
