Leaving the Tiny Earth

by TSJ666 - 48 Hour Compo Entry

Hi! This is my first LD Compo entry.

You find yourself in a tiny world, too tiny for you, and you want to escape from it.

Win the game by constructing a rocket like this:

00S00 0 = empty block
00S00 S = silver block
0SSS0 I = iron block
PSISP P = platinum block
PSISP M = rocket engine
PSISP R = propulsors
PSISP
PSMSP
PSSSP
0R0R0

Arrow keys to move, left mouse button to dig, right mouse button to place blocks and select crafting objects, shift to craft workbench, scroll mousewheel to change materials.

I want you to find the recipes. ;-P

If there are any promlems, tell me and I'll update.

the material selection was broken for me - I wasn't able to switch from the very last material to anything else, and couldn't place blocks anymore

nice idea - now I want rockets in minecraft

Ah, a fan of Minecraft and Terraria. :-)

A little tedious. And I'm somewhat disappointed that you can't fall out of the bottom of the world. But competently made and a cool goal.

You can actually fall off, there is a block under the roon that is in for only 1 pixel. you can destroy that... find out what it happens!!!

Ok, now it's fixed. There were two bugs:
- Items could pass through iron blocks, silver blocks, platinum blocks, rocket engines and propulsors.
- You were not allowed to craft engines or propulsors.
They are now fixed.

Another bug! Propulsors don't disappear when the rocket is crafted!
I'll fix it tomorrow...

@Orni
You have to change materials with the mousewheel. Maybe you were clicking on them?

***I'm posting this on all non-browser games I bring up in an attempt to encourage folks to make browser games next time around. Do not take it personally.***

When hundreds of people make non-browser games, that means that, to play all of the entries, I would need to download hundreds of games to my computer. I typically use OS X, so Windows-only entries are particularly inconvenient.

Please consider making a browser game next time.

I know... but I'm afraid I can't with Game Maker... I'll see.

However... it's not windows only. I think it can work on all platforms.

The game is generally well done, I like the particles, the physics with the falling objects and the trees. But it is kinda boring, maybe because of the lack of sound, or maybe because mining stuff takes too much time.

Also, I think it is very important that the entire game is contained within the game -- even if you want to keep the exact recipes a secret, the keys for using the game (shift for crafting bench, the recipe for the rocket), should be available in the game, not in a separate webpage.

Thanks for the game!

Ok... I'll do a better version in my summer holidays, don't worry. And it hasn't any music because I can't compose...

crafting was rather bad, and the block should not have been rounded

Sorry, I'm not able to play as I don't have Windows.

This is very Terraria-ish, but I liked it whatsoever. The character seemed to walk backwards and had some jumping problems, but otherwise excellent work.

Not bad, the controls were a little sticky, but I did like the graphic style.

Ooooh, very nice! Really good work for 48 hours!
Good job! :D

Nice work. The ledges are works very weird. Sometimes in "0"-section is really hard to jump in.

Where X - block, 0 - free space, P - player

I know... it's just the fact that I'm not a real pro yet. I can't get rid of that problems for now.

Got kinda boring, and I couldn't make head or tail of the crafting. Pretty neat idea, though!

I would play it, but I'm on an iMac.

It's fun to play, audio wasn't working for me and I couldn't figure out how to get iron. Still, nice work.

Very fun indeed!

Very good to get the game in there that you did in the time. Sure it's rough around the edges. As its pretty much a clone of Terraria/MC it's not original, but of course working to a restriction can enable productivity which is a great lesson to learn as well.

It feels like you put a lot of work into the game and this results in great gameplay. I love that you added a final goal to the minecraft formula (I should really play Terraria). Collision detection in Game Maker is a pain in the ass, my game is suffering from this too.
