My entry for the 38th Game Maker Community jam, made in 72 hours!

Rules of the Rhinoceros is a roguelike where you have three simple rules to follow on each floor! The catch? The rules are randomly generated, and you won't know what you're gonna get until it's too late!

Throw guns, shoot giant parrots, and dodge ghosts on your way to become the King of All Rhinos! Buy powerups from your friendly neighborhood shopkeeper lizard between stages or scavenge what you can from each level.

Gameplay tips:

  • Thrown guns instantly kill most enemies. You don't need to wait until you're out of ammo to throw a gun.
  • The goal always in on the right-hand side of the level.
  • Buying a health upgrade will heal you to max health afterwards.
  • While "Coins hurt you" is in effect, you will not actually take damage when invincible after an attack. Use this to your advantage to nab some cash!

Very impressive and also what is going on?? 

I actually think this is a super fun game. The only thing that really bugged me was the coins hurting you rule. There are so many coins throughout the level and the enemies spawn too quickly that it's nearly impossible to take in the game since your character is flying around with damage. I would love to see how you pulled off some of those effects though!
