Codename: Taken

by arielsan - Competition Entry

Just survive the time you can (no actions taken if you die... and you are very strong for now).

Green Robot protects you from Red robots, move your character with LEFT and RIGHT arrow keys and jump with the UP arrow key.

Missing features:

* Points based on survival time
* Die and Game Over
* Health bars
* more...

Theme relation:

You can't defend by yourself from the red robots so it is dangerous to go alone but you have your friendly green robot (a gift from the game creator) which is really happy to defend you from the other robots. However, your robot moves slower than you so you have to wait for him otherwise you will be alone and ... that is dangerous.

Hope you could play it.


Jam version contains more stuff like Game Over and a Scores.

I have modified the links to point the Web link to our blog where all links are listed (source code, time lapse, gameplay, etc).

Parappa returns!?

I'm a sucker for orbital mechanisms, so this has a lot of potential.

Congratulations on beating the LD48!

Slick character movement, lots going on, but it felt a bit chaotic. Then my green robot went missing and I ran off a cliff and couldn't restart :/

It is a very interesting concept. It could use a life bar and some means to communicate or command the robot..

Your use of the theme in this way is quite marvellous. This is one of the few entries where I'd say that the theme was put spot on in the center of the action. Indeed, it is dangerous to go alone.

The execution was actually quite good most of the way. I worried a bit that my robot was just a tad too straying for my tastes, but worked fine otherwise.

Put in moar content and release!

I like the idea of communicate commands to the robot in some way.

Glad you liked it, sadly my entry is quite incomplete so it cannot compete with the other Ludum Dare entries.

Right now, I keep working on the game by my own, I liked so much the theme and my game concept that I will try to complete it a bit more and see what happens, more information on the Web link.

Looking forward to play your games.
