Grab a Jetpack or You Will Die

by FenrisWolf - Competition Entry

Here's a little game I came up with. I've been quite busy this weekend so I didn't have too much time to dedicate to it, but I still think its a fun, nifty little thing. Have fun!

Thanks for pointing that out! It's been fixed.

Crashes because it's missing alleg42.dll, which can be found here until Fenris fixes it. http://jadendreamer.wordpress.com/2008/03/18/alleg42dll/

Still crashed often for me (the program, though I also crashed often). I like the spikes following you. Good music, too. Nothing very original.

I seem to lack the technical ability to make this run. :(

Could be a neat little game if the controls were somewhat worked on. It's hard to land on a platform again if you can't control left/right at all.

Won't run for me, either. Same DLL error as above.

Seems fixed at this point.

The basics of the gameplay has a great touch to it, slingshotting upwards whilst conserving fuel the best way possible. Apart from the somewhat bland graphics I guess I really only missed a little slower gameplay. I rarely got more than 3 jumps through because the game simply started speeding up faster than I could follow it :D

It's a very good concept, but it seems to be glitched. After I landed on a platform and tried to fling the guy, he often activated the jetpack and started flying vertically. It could have been either the game or my mouse, and my mouse has a history of giving me trouble, so maybe it isn't your fault at all. Either way, it was fun. Could definitely be expanded into a more fully-developed game.
