Fuck El Dorado! Let's get the hell outta here!!1 - deps - 48 Hour Competition Entry

El Dorado wasn't anything like what the brochures made you believe. For one thing it was packed with native americans that didn't appreciate a settler walking in from nowhere.
Fuck El Dorado! Let's get the hell outta here!!1

Arrows to move left/right. Space to jump.
Avoid the spears. Have fun!

Written in around 15 hours. No Native Americans were harmed during the making of this game.

Edit: You cannot win, because that's how things roll in El Dorado!

awesome graphics, way to continue a series of games. Love the little messages at the bottom of the screen as well.

Nice to see 3D, though very odd looking ground vs objects in this. Game play is good and funny :)

Very simple, but very good nonetheless. Good looking graphics, though I have to ask, why was everything floating above the ground? Gave it an odd look. Also, I don't know if there was a win condition or not, I never got to it. Would have been nice to indicate that.

The ground doesn't really moves, just the texture. :) It was late, I was in a hurry. Let's just pretend that you're driving so fast that it's an optical illusion. ;)

Oh, and the only end is when you die. Time ran out...

No, unless you count burning to a crisp as winning... But that's how they roll in El Dorado! ;)

Loved the Oregon Trail style text that came up when you got hit. Especially, "Your grandma fell off" and "You are about to die from corrugated ankles." LOL!

Not bad for few hours, but in the end it's just a simple dodging (in 3d, but with unity it's not that hard, with flying boulders and cacti and funny donkey/horse/something.) About the only thing I liked were the funny messages when you got hit, so you're going to be one of the few games I rated with some humor :)

Not bad, I'm assuming it's not finished and had you had more time you would've added an end game so I'll focus instead on what was actually there. The blocky graphics worked well for this and the sound effects were appropriate. One annoying problem was the inability to control the caravan as it was in mid-jump (but perhaps that was intentional).

I liked the intro and game-start cutscenes, they added some character to the game (although I never realized that the level had actually begun after the zoom-out at the start, it could've used some sort of a prompt imo). Overall it's well done but needs to be fleshed out some more.
