Hoover is a short, quirky platformer I created in 48 hours for the 2017 Game Maker's Toolkit Game Jam. All of the art, code, and music was created by myself within one 48-hour period. Because of that, expect bugs, and don't be sad when it's over.

The theme of the jam was Dual design, meaning gameplay features with multiple purposes. In Hoover, you control a penguin with a vacuum cleaner. Using the left mouse button, you can suck in air to absorb enemies and draw objects near. With the right mouse button, you can expel the air you've collected, allowing you to propel yourself around the stage, alter the course of projectiles, move platforms, and more. Hold the left and right mouse buttons together to quickly expel air without propelling yourself around.

I recorded a timelapse of my work on this game, which you can find here.

I had a lot of fun making this! I have other projects to work on now, but if you like this and want to see more levels, follow me on twitter @_skeptile_ and let me know you're interested. If some people want me to, I'll find time to expand this into a full-er game.
