    Sprung - shiftingParadigms - Competition Entry

    Sprung is a first person platformer that ignores those pesky laws of physics that make the world such a drab and boring place. While universal law breaking may sound like a fun activity the dangers here are very real. Take on three levels of spring filled madness in Sprung.

    Forward -> W
    Back -> S
    Left -> A
    Right ->D
    Jump -> Space
    Rotate/Look -> Mouse

    While holding down one of the move keys you accelerate.
    The faster you move the higher you jump.
    Build momentum in order to get over pits.

    This game uses WebGL so you need a browser that can support it. It was developed in Chrome and a couple of modifications were made to port it to Firefox.

    I made a slight modification to the code so that it now works in both Chrome and Firefox. One of my event handlers was not working correctly in Firefox and so I shifted the code to jump to another handler and now it works on both.

    It's amazing that this can be done with javascript.

    I found the mouse controls really off-putting - perhaps because of the way I moved my mouse as I played, the character seemed to be swaying around as if drowsy.

    man that third level is HARRRD. way to write this all in javascript, and get 3d graphics as well. I was also having that difficultly with the mouse tracking slowly... I think that manshoots have gotten me tuned to super fast mouse tracking.

    Cool concept. ++ for JavaScript. Controls behaved strangely and I couldn't make it past lvl 2.

    Does not work on IE9. OS links are useless, all link to the web anyway.

    somehow didn't work well, was all fuzzy and I was never shure if a jump was triggered or not

    I want to encourage you to keep working on this - javascript / webgl are really cool things;

    But you're probably aware that this needs a lot of work - especially the input.

    @Kvisle, thanks. I really enjoyed making it, even though its painfully hard to enjoy. Its the first time I've done the LD and I was just happy to get something to work.

    May 4, 2011 @ 1:09am

    Congrats on clearing your first LD!

    May 4, 2011 @ 1:30am

    @Endurion, sorry first time for me, I guess I just didn't quite get how it was supposed to work. Its fixed now.
