I really love the concept, and the mechanics make a lot of sense. I do think it would be better if the timing weren't as tight, although I am probably below average when it comes to speedy puzzle platforming.
Got stuck? Here is a walkthrough video!
Lifespan Candle is a puzzle platformer game where you control a cute little candle with an unfortunately short lifespan. You can use water to extend its life, ignite fire on woods and swallow pills to regenerate a little bit of wax.
This games was made in 6 days for the Weekly Game Jam #160 with the theme "Nothing stays Forever".
- WASD or Arrow keys to move.
- "R" to reset the level.
All the assets were made by me.
8bit sound effects made with Bfxr and Freesound.org.
Background music by Playonloop.

Nice and its too cute, can't just burn out just like that. I like it
Great job!! The most important thing with this kind of games is to perfect the difficulty and having an original mechanic. both were great. Not too hard, not too easy either and kept me hooked till the end.
The only complaint I have is that ur tourches are inconsistent. Like ur colliders dont work properly or it might just be that I need to hit a specific spot (if thats the case make their radious bigger). Thats something u should work on other than that everything is amazing. Create more levels and this could be a commercial game
great game, i loved it!!
Noooo, why is the last screen only the candle burning down with no way to help D': You can't do this, its too cute, can't just burn out just like that.
So good that it is addictive ..
