A game by Nikolai Shkurkin and Chris Hall. Entry for the Ludum Dare 47 Jam.

Find your way through a secret laboratory with Boomie, your trusty boomerang. Boomie is quirky - rather than come back to you, Boomie likes to circle around and around! Can you use Boomie's abilities to find your way to the end?

Best experienced with headphones!


WASD - move around

Space - Throw or recall Boomie. You must create a looping path for Boomie to follow!

K - switch characters


Engine - Phaser.js

Graphics - FTLPaint by Nikolai

Levels - Tiled


Music - Bosca Ceoil

Thank you for playing! Thanks so much Nikolai for leading the charge on this jam, I had a blast!
