Rectangle Dude in a Bombed Building

by tsaxi - 48 Hour Compo Entry

My second game after a Pong clone. It's barely a game, but I had almost no experience, and learnt quite a lot about graphics, programming and game design by making it.

Arrow keys to move. Space or up key to jump. Down to enter doors.

You need LOVE 0.7.2 or 0.8.0 ( ) to play using the .love file.

Linux users who wish to use the standalone binary should make sure they have SDL, OpenGL, OpenAL, Lua, DevIL, FreeType, PhysicsFS, ModPlug, mpg123 and vorbisfile. You probably have them all except for Lua and SDL (if you've never played a game).

I'll update with Windows binaries later.

.love file is a zip archive. Source is inside it.

I love your little Cartman guy. He walks super slow, but for some reason he can jump really high?

The game is awful, but funny and charming. Good job.

The player walks too slow for my taste. The game is OK-ish, but is is a regular platforms game; the "alone" theme is somewhat missing in it.

Also, for next time, please release a standalone binary in all platforms; why is that most Löve2D developers assume we like to download the love2d binary?

@summaky, it is like how you download flash to play flash games or download java to play java games.

Cartman is the right name for him ^^ Not very specifical for alone theme (of course you are alone, but you are in nearly every platformer game ^^).
Could have used more levels, but anyway, nice game! :D

Sorry... It's almost unplayable in my PC... I think theres' a problem with collision detection/jump speed

I gave a point for innovation, because sometimes the exit was on the left side of the screen instead of the right side. ...

I don't want to sound like a spoilsport, but please, people, don't bother uploading a game when it isn't much of game and it only was a learning experience. Think of those who want to rate games and have to dig through hundreds of unfinished tutorial projects. Also in this regard: next time, please make it more convenient to play your game (there are tools to create a .exe for LÖVE, i think).
