  • TAB to pause and change options!
  • Mouse to look!
  • Left Mouse Button to fire your rocket arms!
  • (v1.2 onwards) R to restart the current level!
  • Unfortunately you can not restart the current level in v.1.1 - you have to wait for the incineration game over before you can restart.

Mr. Bear has been captured by a comical supervillain and taken to an undisclosed location. Is there any hope for the elusive secret spy to escape?!

The theme:

'Right to Bear Arms' was made in under 48 hours for the GMTK Jam 2021 with the theme "Joined Together": the player is joined together with the world, creating a game where you have to escape puzzle rooms without the ability to move. Instead, the player's arms are not joined together, and each room must be solved by firing homing robot arms!

  • His name is Bear, Teddy Bear.
  • First person perspective!
  • 9 puzzles!
  • Dialogue and story!
  • Intrigue!
  • One heck of a game over screen!
  • A killer spy soundtrack

Amazing job with this game! It was my favorite of all GMTK 2021 games I played. The gameplay is simple to understand yet gets pretty challenging (which is perfect game design imo). I love the writing and voice acting, and it's unbelievable how polished the game is given that your team only had 48 hours to make it!

Only glaring thing I noticed was that it was annoying having to wait to die if you spent all of your rocket arms and didn't hit the button (which I notice everyone has already mentioned...)

Hi! Thanks for playing! I have now uploaded version 1.2 of the game to the Web and Windows builds - you can now restart the level you are in by pressing R!

Haha the commentary is so funny, Especially the sister.

BTW, Would love for you to try my game too.

It is an Action Platformer with unique controls.

GOOD

I love it! and as some other people pointed out skipping after you run out of arms would have been a great addition! Keep on doing what you do!

cool game but would have appreciated 2 extra lines of code to make the game end when arms = 0

Yeah. Quick restart definitely coming in the post-jam version, I massively goofed up there - thank you for playing nevertheless!

Pure fun and espionage! 
I loved the bear and the entire style of this game. It was similar to one game I played a long time ago, where you had to manipulate the flow of the bullet. Well, anyways, great music, fun montage, amazing voice over and Perfect game! 
Splendid!
