Lords and Vassals

This game is made for the Puzzle Jam [8 Bits to Infinity].  See the game intro for more information.


  • A twisted Kuromasu clone.
  • Retro, gameboy alike, pixel art, created with a very limited colors palette (this pallette + B&W).
  • Procedurally generated puzzles.
  • Powered by Phaser CE, hence the game should work on any platform.

I've created this game by myself, except music and sounds effects. Audio credits:

Very well implemented! I especially enjoyed the music, it does a good job fading into the background. The only main suggestion I'd make is to include a more comprehensive tutorial; make sure you mention that the castle itself counts as an influenced tile. I scored a 319.

Thank you for your kind words about my game! I've already add your suggestion in the tutorial, but I have to wait with uploading it till the end of the gamejam's voting.

Lovely game adaptation of an existing puzzle, beautiful graphics and great mood.

It took me a moment to learn how to play the game, but it was fun to do so! I'd some sort of a '?' button which would show me the rules again without having to quit the level. Or maybe a single hint per stage.

Great stuff and it was quite challenging, even after I got the hang of the controls!

Thank you! I'll do the ? button in the afterjam update!


Tutorial completed

Fantastic work!


hopefully it help lots of people :)

Great game! It took a few minutes to really understand it but once I did it is an awesome set of puzzles. Really well done. I finished with a score of 54.

Thank you, try a few more times, u will see how quickly u can progress. Furthermore, I'm looking forward to play your great, camera-stealing game more, but I'm short on time lately :(

i think im the first one to finish this game :)

this game really need a tutorial

Congratulation(!), a few tries more and you will beat the creator! I've got 256 (without cheating of course xD), it's such a round score :)

its really a bit confusing (it takes me 10 20 minutes to understand the meaning of it)

mind if i create some tutorial?

Go on! I really appreciate such a contribution.

hope my vid get featured on this itch pages :)

still uploading..... im not sure if they will get what i mean in video tho

Very interesting game! At first I was very confused but luckily there was a tutorial that explained everything. The music and art style was very nice and fit perfectly together and over all I really enjoyed playing this game :D

I don't know if you've heard of Game Development World Championship before (gdwc2019) but it's a competition for indie game developers where they can submit their games and it's free! It's great if you want some more visibility for the game and it only takes a couple of minutes to join :)
