Junk in the Trunk
---Quick Start Controls---
The game was originally made for android, so use your mouse (click and drag) to swipe up, down, left, right, and click to do different things!
Thanks for checking out my game! Ivory the Elephant thanks you! This is a project I put together over the course of about 9 months. I have a lot more content to release including many more levels, combat mechanics, new enemies, obstacles, environments etc... but wanted to release this version of the game to get a sense of player feedback first. I humbly await your thoughts and feedback!
If you would rather grab the build from Google Play which provides access to achievements and leaderboards, feel free to do that too! (It is free, link at the bottom of this page)

-- STORY --
You play as Ivory the Elephant to clean up her environment and restore natural balance to the world!
Ivory has always spent her time doing good for the world around her. Having grown up in nature, she cherishes it and does her best to pick up any junk and release energy which has been trapped, obstructed from flowing naturally.
Our story begins with Ivory setting out on a routine round of cleanup in her local forest. Strangely, Ivory notices a bit more junk than normal and a lot of nature energy trapped in weird orbs. Could this be the work of a rogue band of evil litterbugs? What kind of mess will she find at her favorite nature shrine? How will she get to the bottom of these problems and hold those responsible accountable?
Time is of the essence! The longer junk is scattered about the land and energy is obstructed, the weaker the sun shines and the frailer the plants grow!
-- DEVELOPER NOTE --
Thank you so much for checking out my (first) game! I sincerely appreciate it!
This game represents a year of hard work and learning for me!
As of mid February 2021, I am releasing the first publish version of the game which contains essentially all tutorial levels that focus on the essentials of movement. Over the coming months, I will release more levels with artistic and mechanic variety that get into the meat of the game's combat mechanics and feature cool (silly) enemies and boss encounters.
I love making games and would greatly appreciate any feedback or content additions you think would be interesting. That being said, as a solo indie developer with a full time job, I ask you to be patient and bear with me a bit! That is why I have decided to release this game for free and without adds.
