Coin Knights is a local multiplayer game for 4 players for the Crime City arcade machine made by Redgrim. It was created during the Exile Game Jam – Autumn 2012. The game is made in ActionScript 3 using Flixel.
The aim of the game is to pick up treasure chests that spawn randomly in the middle of the map and return them to your castle. You can carry up to 4 different chests, so sometimes it might more advantageous to pick up more chests instead of going back and forth. However, some chests contain bombs, which make you lose all the treasure you’re currently carrying. Furthermore, players can push each other around, either to push them away from treasure chests, or to push them ONTO treasure chests, potentially making them pick up a bomb. The gameplay was designed by Anchel and I, the graphics and sound were made by Anchel and the programming and music were made by me.
The game can be played here. The yellow player is controlled using the arrow keys and Shift, the green player is controller using WASD and Q, the third player is controlled using TFGH and R, and the blue player is controlled using IJKL and U.
