Robot Pit Escape

by SuperSausageDog - 48 Hour Competition Entry

My first Ludum Dare entry! Only just made it in. It's a puzzle platformer about pushing blocks to climbs upwards and escape from a pit.

It has 15 levels, with a big new game mechanic introduced on level 11. The controls are;

Use the left and right arrow keys to move left and right. Press up to jump. If you have a gun press the space bar to use it. Press R to restart a level. Press H if you need help and help text will be added to the end of any text that is on screen. You can go forward or back a level using the < and > keys. If the game doesn't respond to key presses click on it to gain focus.

The game seems to grow rather hard early on so if you have to use the help option or even skip a level don't feel too bad. Make sure to get through all the levels one way or another so you can see the ending screen though.

Created in FlashDevelop with AS3. Bfxr was used for sounds.

That's some pretty cool game play, and the puzzles get very challenging after a while.

Shockingly innovative, mind-bogglingly challenging. You're onto something with this game idea, find a way to bring it to more people!

Fantastic gameplay mechanics, I love it. With some fancier graphics and controls, this would be very releaseable. My favorite game so far!

Nice puzzle game. Very fun and interesting level design. The font was a bit small though.

I found a bug (although not game breaking). You can push a block and shoot a laser at the same time (putting the block in an intermediate location).

Wow, I wasn't interested from the screenshots, but this is a seriously awesome game you have here, hilarious text too. Polish this sucker up with some better graphics, sound, and music, and you've got a serious game. Some amazing level design in here, if only a little too tough for a few. Definitely used the H key a few times.

Fantastic submission, congratulations.

The addictive qualities of tetris plus the addictive qualities of a platformer. Nicely done!

Neat mechanic. I also like hoe the levels ramp up in difficulty.

There seeem to be, however, a lot of ways to get stuck.
