Lovely graphics, good music and very playable on the good old C64. Not even multi-load. Very hard game, mind you, and pretty addictive. It would have made a great Commercial title :)

I streamed this game on twitch yesterday and received nothing but positive feedback.  It's amazingly fun to play, I don't even care that I continually die and have to start over.

I'd be careful with checkpoints/savepoints.  It really comes down to how long a playthrough might take; if you are playing for hours and you're only at the midpoint then yes you need a savepoint.  However if the game could be played through in say 30 mins a savepoint might make it too easy.  It's all about the time it would take in my opinion.

This game is awesome. Probably going to be a while before I beat it though :P It's tough. I love the art style though! And the transforming mechanic reminds me of a game I was working on a while ago. Maybe some day I'll finish that one.

Anyway, this is awesome. I also love the music.

Is there no way to save/no checkpoints?

No, sorry. But Version 1.5 will have savepoints.

what are supported controller. I tried on w10 with xbox 360 controller and snes usb controller none of these work. Even with joy2key alt donsen't work for attack for any button i set it

The joypad can be configured in the wolfling.ini - please take a look at the readme file how to do that. If you need assistance or if your joypad is not supported, write me a mail. (contact info should be at the end of the readme)

Oh, sorry! If you want to help me debugging it, write me a mail. (contact info should be at the end of the readme)


I've had a small issue too launching it on Ubuntu 19.04. It couldn't find the libportaudio.so.2 lib, which is installed by default but not the 32-bit version (needed by the game) on 64-bit distro.

Had to install it with sudo apt-get install libportaudio2:i386

I'm not sure how itch is supposed to handle that kind of dependencies. Maybe the 32-bit lib should be bundled with the game?

Oh wow, it is almost a tribute to Inner Worlds! It was amazing DOS game with a girl werewolf too.

is this the finished game?


V1.4 is the most recent public version by now. (however, a 2nd level for an enhanced version is currently under contruction)

I played this on my Indie Game Showcase and playing this along with a few others is why I ended up investing in the C64 Mini. Although, I played this on PC. Wolfling plays very well on C64 Mini, it makes the game a lot more fun playing with the joystick and I had no issues with running this on the C64 Mini.

The game itself is fun and challenging and I enjoyed it.

It's simple, it's challenging, it's nostalgic as heck. Wolfling is a quality piece of work, with everything I can think of being in place to recreate the look and feel of an old NES era game. Something I've only seen a handful of people actually pull off well. And the option to play in C64 style instead of just NES? A big cherry on top.

Great job on this, dev.

Looks great! I have to check this out ... 

What a wonderful game! Thank you so much for making this, and for sharing this! It's really beautiful!
