Great work. I did encounter what I think might be a bug though. In the second-to-last level, I couldn't figure out the real solution (assuming this thing I'm thinking is a bug is not the solution), but I was able to freeze the knight while he was standing on top of the mage. With the frozen knight on my head, the mage was able to jump repeatedly in the air and gain height. That raised me to the platform on the right, where I already had the archer. Then of course I shot the mage with the archer to pin him to the wall across the gap, and finished that way. A small "bug" for an otherwise amazing little game!

Great game!!!!

Nice game <3

Cute, short, and sweet! A rewarding ending too. The freedom and leeway in levels was nice.

This is in my opinion the best Ludum Dare 43 game I have played so far. Each level was unique and the puzzles were well thought out, and I played the whole game.

Very fun, and original concept!
Beautiful art & lovely songs. Just awesome.

I love the game. down arrow for switch hero would be nice

Really awesome game! I love how  there is a freedom to how you beat the puzzles. For example, on level nine I pinned the knight to the wall, but couldn't figure out how to get the archer down. Instead, I shot an ice ball at the pinned knight to make him drop, lowering my teammate to victory. The concept is really expanded upon to a great extent which I like.

My only complaint is that the controls are not my favorite. I would suggest using WASD to move and jump, S to switch, and J or enter to attack. Just a suggestion. Nice work!

Edit: I got a little more used to the controls when I played it again
