Death Boulder Jones update

Okay, so maybe the name is now Death Boulder Jones. I have decided to call the main character Jones, as a little “hats off” to the character who inspired him.

I have the following done:

– Jones runs! He steers!
– Jones takes damage and dies when he hits traps!
– Traps are made:
– Arrows that shoot from faces in the wall!
– A massive boulder that follows you unceasingly!
– Bubbling lava pits that kill you instantly if you touch them!
– Click-and-drag to create walls in order to protect Jones and show him where to go!
– Moar exclamation points!!!!!

Still to do:
– Game tweakage
– More traps
– Level design
– Powerups
– Money pickups

I have a few hours I can work today, then that’s it. Hoping to get this done to a level that makes it fun. Still, I’m really very proud of this already and I think it’ll be great for only having 10 hours or so to work on it.
