Conga Line Heroes

Ain’t no party like a conga line party!

Lead a dashing party of adventuring heroes along a one-dimensional corridor full of perils for fame and glory using position-based real-time combat!

Fight your waves through as many waves of enemies as possible and be preparred for the inevitable boss waves.

Made during Fall Game Jam 2020, organized by LiU Game Jam, based on the theme Distance Plain.

Playing instructions

A new wave will spawn when all enemies, traps, chests and pickups of the previews waves have been defeated/destroyed or passed the party.
