A downloadable game for Windows

"Pest Quest" is a 2D platforming game where you play as a tiny spider trying to escape the dangerous tunnels he was hatched in. Collect flies to gain lives and avoid the hazardous flora at all costs!

Length: 5 - 120 minutes

Keyboard only: can use arrow keys or WASD

The game has only been tested on Windows so far

This is my first game, made in about 2.5 weeks. Although I call it a demo, there will not be a longer version of this build; I plan to remake the game from the ground up once I gain more experience with coding and pixel art. My hope is to turn it into a full-fledged metroidvania with at least a few hours of content.

The little tune I made for the game is also included as a free download.

All comments and criticisms are greatly appreciated. Thank you for your support!

Tight controls and great level design. A solid challenge for any fans of platformers.
