Cost is a game that was originally made for Ludum Dare 40. It has now been remastered into a full game! Cost is a game for all ages.

This game relates to the Ludum Dare 40 Theme “The more you have, the worse it is” because the more kills you have in the game, the more the cost of the treasure in the story decreases.

Cost is a game with excellent 2D platforming gameplay and autoscrolling mechanics. It also has excellent and intuitive UI. Unlike the original version which only had one level with one enemy type, the new version of Cost has 20 diverse levels with 4 unique and different enemy types. Finally, the new version of Cost has much better music compared to the original version.
