Aaah! Run!

by norgas - 48 Hour Competition Entry

Only the knight can walks on blue blocks and only the princess can walks on pink blocks. The levels are randomly generated and infinite.


(z):Switch between princess/knight

This game is my first LD entry. The artwork is awful. Next time I will be more ready.

The linux build needs a SFML2 install.

Cool, dragons :). How can I compile it? Do you have a kind of a makefile?

No, sorry man :( . I used Code block. I don't know how to link the last build of SFML2 with makefile. I will make a Windows build first and then I will think about the linux version.

ok, thanks. Maybe I can run your widows build with wine.

Nice! I like the switching mechanic, the graphics aren't too bad, and the music is simple but fitting.

I vaguely feel like i've seen the dragon before somewhere... then again that might be because it's quite well-done. It's an alright game, I guess.

Neat switching mechanic. I like it.

Nice graphics. For some reason, the filenames your binary links to are different than mine (build from the latest version of SGML2 on linux).

All your libraries had an extra "-d" in them, such as instead of

I'm not sure why (I'm not familliar with SGML). It worked after I added some symlinks.

In the current version of the game, it feel more like a multitasking game than a platformer with switching though.

Foobaz: -d is for debug, I don't know why but the release build show link error on my computer. I don't think we can call it a multitasking game, the game is running platformer. I just add a switching mechanics.

All: Thanks for all comments :)

Nice idea!

I have the feeling though this would work better as a straight-up runner - your character moves automatically from left to right, all you can do is jump and switch.

Interesting switching mechanic. Adds a bit of difficulty to a simple game. Very nicely done dragon

Super fun! I wonder what context would allow someone to transform between a knight and a princess at will...

Can't test it, as you used SFML2 that most GNU/Linux distributions don't have yet, I don't want to compile it by hand, and you failed to provide the binaries yourself (also, next time don't link to debug libraries when releasing anything, please.)
