Wishing Well/Pieces of Eight Blackjack: With the gold coins you acquire in the dungeon, you can go to the wishing well and gamble for more. Instead of 21, the target is 8. And there's only two "cards", one or two. The deck has an even number of both types of coins/cards. Hit allows you to flip another coin to add 1 or 2 to your total. Stay keeps you at your current total, while the computer tries to get a better score. 2X will double down your bet, and you can get 1.5 times the usual reward, rounded up. 

If you find yourself stuck in Blackjack, make sure to finish the round first (both players at 0). This will allow you to exit.

Description

This game is a mashup of Frogger (the log platforms) and Blackjack (using collected coins to bet and win more). It also has the set collection mechanic from Pac-Man.  The game's style is derived heavily from the old GameBoy handhelds, from the sound to the graphics. Made in 5 days during the 8-Bits to Infinity Mashup Jam

Take a good look at the demo level...you may find some mushy secrets (2 mushrooms to find).

Is there any chance you could enable "fallback to GLES 2.0?" I can't run the game without getting the outdated graphics card error.

I am agree with the other comment, this game look so cool. Yes it work and it was fun.

(I have make a game me too : https://ironpowertga.itch.io/packm)

Beautiful game and yeah, definitely looks expansible.

One issue for me is having to wait for the coin animations during the Blackjack portion. They make the experience sluggish!
