Game for the Ludum Dare 39 -- Theme: Running out of Energy

The shy gladiator has to defeat three mythical creatures, but he is too embarrassed to attack,
so instead he must dodge their attacks until the monsters lose all their powers.

You can move left or right, and dodge with "Z". Dodge will give you a few invincibility frames, but also
take some hit points from you.

Can you defeat all three monsters?

TODO:

  • Better title screen that actually explains the game;
  • Better logic for the Cyclops, and calling out attacks;
  • Balance the damage amounts better;
