GaMc is a metroidvania puzzle platformer made during TOJam 11. Grab blocks, jump around and solve the puzzles to unlock all the switches to the end. For the adventurous, find all the golden treasure goats to get to the secret end room, but be warned, you better be ready to glitch the game out to make it there...

This is a jam game so the length is pretty short. Getting to the end should not be unreasonably difficult and will require solving a few puzzles, but collecting all the golden goats could prove much harder since many involve using the quirks of the game engine.

can i change the screen size? the game starts in fullscreen and it seems that the screen is "cropped". i mean.. it's not in the same size as the screenshot and mine looks like zoomed out.

You can run config.exe and go into "configure driver." Then uncheck 2xScale and click "ok." That will reduce the window size. From that menu you can also set the game to do proper fullscreen as well.
thanks a lot! the window size helped.
however, i can't seem to reach the treasure goat which is surrounded by the wall here.. i only find the green door which is unlocked by the switch on the far right unexplored although i don't know how to reach it.. is it perhaps the way to reach the goat?
The green switch is to the immediate left of the starting area. Go up and to the left to get to it.

As for the goat surrounded by walls, as with other golden goats in the game, you have to figure out a glitch to be able to "get" it without going through the walls.

Hint (if you need it):
For that one, you have to use the fact that you can grab other golden goats.
I know that i can go to the far left area to activate the green switch, but there are 2 buttons there. The right one unlocks the green switch and the left one unlocks the door in the same area as left room to the south of the starting area (and idk how to reach this door)


I also have tried to grab the goat yesterday (i even used a block to support my height to grab it from the right side) but it seems that the wall is too thick; i can't seem to take it from there. Is there any trick to get closer to it?

I'm finding the movement to be really sluggish in this game. Is this how its supposed to be or is there something that need to be fixed?

When you get into the room with the green switches, the left switch will unlock the door on the screen to the east, and the right switch will lock that door. Once you get past that door, there's nothing else to do with the green switch since all green doors will be open. The other switches to get are the red, yellow and blue switches. The red one you already know how to get, the blue one is out in the open so you just have to find it, and the yellow one requires a bomb jump to get.

In terms of the golden goat you mentioned, you have to grab a *different* and bring it to that screen. Since there can be only one golden goat on any screen, when you drop and get the golden goat you were holding, then the game counts that as you getting the golden goat for that screen.

It shouldn't be. I should be running at about 60fps (the actual drawn fps would be higher, but the update rate is 60fps). If it's sluggish, you can try switching to a different video driver with config.exe, and trying a few different settings with it (eg: 1x vs 2x, fullscreen vs windowed).
thanks for the info! actually it was the last goat and i already retried the game three times just to get it (this is my fourth attempt).
i only find the first step by accident and i didn't really think it have to be done like that!

however, i still don't quite understand with the left switch entrance.
i mean.. i want to try explore that place (although it probably has nothing in it as i already took all goats and pressed all switches) but i just didn't know where to start.
here is what i meant in case i am not saying this correctly.

there is an entrance from the left side and the left door, how can i reach either one?


anyways, since i already feel satisfied by finishing the game, i'll try to write a review tomorrow :)
There's nothing there. There was some intention of having more screens in that direction, but by the end of the jam the plans were changed.

So yeah, if you got all the switches and goats, then the only thing left is to go through the ending door and get the ending screen (underwhelming as it may be due to time constraints).
