Flod Embarks - amodo - 48 Hour Compo Entry

I had almost given up because I had some tough weeks prior to the weekend, little time, and even fewer ideas. Then, Sunday noon, I finally started with half an idea. But I'm happy about what came out in the end. I put about 14 hours into it. Enjoy!

Tools:
Flash Builder 4.5, Flixel, Flixel Powertools, TileStudio, Autotracker by Greasemonkey (modified a little), Audacity, SFXR

You are Fraxtol Flod-Pirno S'nint, a lonely robot looking for friends.

Fun little idea. I wish it were possible to explore the planets a little more, but a great idea, and cute characters too.

Is something amiss here? I follow the link for "web" and get a perpetual "Flod" page that is stuck forever

dr_soda, strange! It should play via the flash player. Didn't hear that before!

I found a friend! YAY! But capping the velocity on the ship might be a good idea. :)

I liked the animations as simple as they were

Good idea, very cute graphics, music is well done too. Would love to see you take the idea further!

Interesting concept, cute graphics. Planet indicators should show the distance somehow or it's too easy to overshoot. Also spamming T let's you teleport regardless at high speed. I like the small attraction planets have, Not a lot of content in space or on planets though. Nice soundtrack.

Nice idea, great music, simple graphics work well. I agree with @ChainedLupine on capping ship's velocity, but some more gameplay would also be interesting.

The game fits the theme but I missed depth in the game.
The ship maneuverability was a bit unresponsive at high speeds.

The game finally loaded. Yay!

So I have to ask you, have you heard of the game "Aether?" The flight through space reminded me of that game, as well as exploring planets, though the planets in Aether weren't discrete screens.

Great idea! I wish I could explore the planets a little bit more though. Also, capping the velocity of the ship would be a good idea as well as increasing the power of the break when turning so that way players won't go flying by planets ,but the over all concept is great!

Good game! The music and sound design was good, and the sprites had a nice feel to them. I especially liked the main character's walking animations!

The ship is a little hard to control, but otherwise I liked the user interface and mood. Nice job!

Dec 24, 2011 @ 10:51am

This is great. I love the sound and the effective non-interface. Nice work!

Whoa, newtonian spacecraft physics. I don't know what's the goal of this game. Looks nice.
