DRUMSTER Prototype

I was attempting to build a "more fluid and natural King's Field" and ended up with this strangely promising prototype instead. DRUMSTER... Drums are literally growing out of your body and you must jam on them to defend yourself.

Skeletons have stolen the giant drumstick! Use your sick drum skills to get it back! - Play "rudiments" (snare and crash combos) for extra damage - All actions consume rhythm

DRILLY WILLIS Version 1.2 - New Game +, Difficulty Modes, and Smoother Boss Fights

 Drilly Willis wishes a Merry Christmas to all who celebrate it, and knows that you probably got some fancy game with AAA graphics today that nonetheless disappointed you the moment you turned it on and discovered that it had zero drillheaded heroes and zero ice cream monsters.
