Jack the Reaper is a 2D platforming game revolving around the titular Jack, a custodian of the dead who must investigate a strange occurrence: the moon has fallen from the sky onto Earth, and all the souls that dwell there have returned to the world of the living! Jack must restore the natural order, fighting through countless levels and bosses to put the dead back to rest. The game will be presented as if it's been made for the SNES- graphics, music, and presentation-wise. The gameplay, on the other hand, was inspired by the Kirby games of the old days (Kirby 64, in particular).
Now I know what you're thinking! "Aw, man, yet another game about a cute version of the Death fighting monsters." But there's much more to it! Being the Grim Reaper, Jack does get certain...benefits; by defeating enemies, Jack can absorb their 'souls' to replenish health and acquire new abilities. Just a few examples:
Boomerang: Throw a deadly boomerang from afar!
Shield: Protect yourself from oncoming enemies and projectiles!
But there's more! After a certain point in the game, Jack can also 'combine' different souls, giving him even greater powers than before!
Using these abilities, Jack can overcome any obstacle!
