Curse of GreedPoofyWho recalls the story of King Midas? He who turned everything to gold when he touched it. The Curse of Greed has a thing like that in common, as you jump over platforms in a world filled with traps like spikes and lasers. All around this place are scattered coins, coins you can pick up, coins you want to pick up, because that's what you do in platform style games like this. Coins give you a higher score, right? Well, not this time. In this game your health bar fills up with gold, every time you pick up a coin and that means two things, one your health depletes and two once your health bar is filled to the brim with gold, you'll turn into gold and it's game over.

Curse of Greed is a game made for the Ludum Dare 40 and was created for the pico8 system. You use the arrow keys to move around and the X key to jump, hold it longer and you'll jump higher. Graphically, this game is in my favorite corner since I'm a big sucker for pixelated games. There's no soundtrack, but instead there are little sound effects when you jump and collect things. But the premise of this game is great! Not collecting coins goes against every little cell in your body and you really have to keep telling yourself not to pick them up. The game is not very long, but entertaining enough to keep you company for at least 10 mins. That is, if you refrain yourself from picking up everything that you see.
