Javel-ein is a 2D platformer in which players have only one javelin to use for the entire adventure. Once you’ve thrown your javelin to kill an enemy, you’ll have to retrieve it before you can use it again. Your quest involves gathering lost treasures like a sceptre and crown from each of the four chapters, where there are a total of sixty levels to play through.
Certain levels also have bonus collectibles to pick up, though reaching them will require some skill and persistence because they’re usually hidden in the furthest corners of any room. There are twelve fabled jewels to be found in every chapter. Originally created for the Ludum Dare 28 competition, positive response from the community spurred Daniel Linssen to produce a new version that includes more stages, multiple boss fights, and several other welcome additions.
