Eureka! - spacsm - Competition Entry

My first entry into Ludum Dare!

Didn't get too much time to work on it because of stuff going on IRL. But there's about 12-16 hours effort in there and I'm pretty happy with the result. Heaps of stuff I would have put in if I had time....enemies chasing you, more varied art & characters, high score tables. And fixing my shoddy collision....yes I know there are bugs with it at the moment.

This had been awesome taking part in Ludum Dare and it has been a great learning experience as well!

Be nice when voting because I'm not that good at programming and/or drawing!

CONTROLS:

UP = UP
DOWN = DOWN
LEFT = LEFT
RIGHT = RIGHT
SPACE = SPRINT
R = RESTART

Amusing concept. Could use better execution though. Space bar rush control isn't listed anywhere, door knob play button was somewhat hard to find. Sound balance is bad (music very quiet, sound effects painfully loud).

This is hilarious the first run through, I came very near to the par time once I figured out the controls - they are Snake style, with no sharp turns. If I had remembered about using the space bar, that probably would have made the difference.
My suggestion would be to generally avoid naked old men in your primary screenshot, however.

Very fun game, but i feel the difficulty is a bit hard.

It was an ok game, I like the screenshot, very good and you get your humor points for it! Theme was very good, the biggest problem I had was getting stuck in walls when sprinting into them on level 2. Anyway, nice entry mate.

The collision issue with walls was game-breaking, unfortunately, as getting stuck on a wall kinda hampers your run time. But it was a cute concept and a fun challenge!

Thanks for all the constructive criticism!

I might sometime polish off the game fixing all the issues. I realize the biggest issue was the collision. The current collision was supposed to only be temporary but then I ran out of time so it had to do....sorry about that.

Feels like some sort of traveling salesman PacMan.

OK, so the game isn't super-fun in and of itself, but I adore the choice of running around naked as Archimedes. Really funny and unique use of the theme.

I think the screenshot demonstrates that you know how to market a game.

Haha, very nice!

Old concept but very well packaged. The time limit is really tough, even with sprint.

The news is spread!
