Kimblis the Blue is an Adobe Flash action adventure puzzle RPG developed by Jacob Grahn that was released on 2005-10-30.

Plot

Controlling Kimblis the Blue, a wizard with powers over the wind, players discover a mysterious young girl in a abandoned city and set off to search for its remaining inhabitants.

Gameplay

Kimblis the Blue Gameplay

Kimblis battles two orcs in a river-side field, with the little girl standing to the left of him.

Kimblis the Blue is an RPG where players control a wind wizard named Kimblis. Players initially begin with only a sword, though as they progress and rank up they unlock various spells that make use of Kimblis' wind abilities, such as a twister and freezing winds.

Unlike typical members of the genre, players don't gain experience points for defeating enemies, instead they automatically level up every time they complete a chapter. Before starting a level, players may increase either their maximum HP or magic by 25 and use two points to acquire a new weapon/spell or upgrade an existing one. All attacks have two upgrades that increase their power, in addition to potentially lowering magic consumption.

Trivia

  • This is the only game Jiggmin published on deviantART.[1]
  • A post on Brackenwood by Jiggmin reveals that the city was attacked by orcs and Kimblis originally planned to search for the little girl's parents.[2]
  • Despite a "To be continued" screen and Jiggmin hinting at one in reviews, a sequel was never made.
  • This was Jiggmin's first game to get frontpaged on Newgrounds.[3]
  • During development, it came to light that several pieces of music were stolen by a Newgrounds user, though issues were quickly sorted out and the artists were given their correct credits.[4]
  • Completing the game without using the level select awards players a "WON" code, which allows them to unlock an infinite magic cheat.
  • Although the little girl doesn't join the player's party until the second level, her health bar is visible in the first.
  • The final boss' species would later reappear in Neverending Light.
  • Due to a bug within Flash, it's impossible to play the official game with Flash Player versions above 19, as the game only reads their first number (currently "2" instead of "20") when it runs a check, rendering it unplayable. The game can be modified to remove the check altogether, though.
