5 Little People

by Lixels - 48 Hour Compo Entry

You play as five people simultaneously, try and get one of them to the end. First ever Ludum Dare entry. I think I need a day or two off life.

There is some strange noise, it's a bug ?

How are you supposed to replay a level after losing all the people?

Hmm, not sure I can rate this fairly - sometimes my guys die randomly, and sometimes I'd finish a level with one guy left only to have none appear on the next level. The death text is a nice idea but seems to flicker randomly and doesn't always match what's happend. Also it really, really needs 'restart level' button.

Nice idea, but too twitchy and buggy to have much fun with I'm afraid.

This is pretty buggy and hard to play. The sound hurts my ears. It seems like playing as 5 people at once is sort of the opposite of "Alone", so I can't even give you points for the theme. Not sure what else to say, better luck next time!

The jumping and air control was pretty difficult. A good start!

Thanks for all the feedback guys!
The noise... I don't know what I was thinking with the noise... I played this again today and the noise was the WORST thing ever.
I didn't have any time to actually give it a proper play-through and still remember making drastic last minute changes to the base engine, so i could actually keep count of the players.
The jumping and air control were built to be difficult, people are supposed to die. In fact you can't finish the third level without killing off at least 2 people.
The 'Narrator' as I call it, is really buggy but it works.
I hope I do better next time! This was really fun!

That sound was like smooth butter to my ears

Sorry, really hard to play with the graphic and sound bugs.
