Description

Midas is a puzzle platformer. In each of the game's 15 levels the goal is to help King Midas reunite with his loved one. The levels consist of blocks that the king has to traverse over. The problem is that everything the king touches turns to gold, not only the girl but also the blocks he walks over. Blocks that are golden will collapse so he can't stand on them for long or he will too fall. Therefore the king has to turn off his special ability by touching the blue blocks that can be found on every level. After that he will be able to touch the girl and move over blocks without danger. The game's story is told by short and concise sentences between levels.

The game references the story of King Midas from Greek mythology who turned everything he touched into gold. The game was developed for the 22nd Ludum Dare competition with the theme "alone".
