My submission for 'My First Game Jam: Winter 2018'

Hi everyone, I participated in a Game Jam on on Sunday 21 January 2017 titled 'My First Game Jam: Winter 2018' by submitting Mini Ball & Chain, a game in which you are entrusted with protecting an island from the angry Ziggs. You fight with a ball and chain melee weapon, but if you're hit three times, it's Game Over.

I couldn't add in everything that I wanted due to having started on this game on Friday morning itself, which was:
- more creatures that move faster and hurt you a lot if you hit them;
- being able to swing from post to post like Spider-man and Bionic Commando;
- falling off the platforms would result in a Game Over screen (currently you'll have to refresh the page to do so);
- proper tiling of the background tiles and art, as compared to my previous game (ColourMapser & the Tomes of Life).

The idea, over the long term, is to make a proper game that features all of the above, and then some. Do let me know how I can further improve on this game :)
