Survival Sea

by Xaconi - 48 Hour Compo Entry

Well, here is my first game created for a Ludum Dare. Is a very basic running game (like Jetpack Joyride) made in SDL. I gave the source code in the .zip file.

A couple things I have to improve to the next LD:

- Timing: it's weekend, but I think that wake up early two "not-working" days is vital. Wake up at 11:00 it's not a very good plan to start.

- Theme: I didn't know about the theme, and I had a very specific idea in my mind about the game. I think this part would be improved in the next LD.

- Audio: no audio, between now and December (next LD) I think I'll learn how to add audio in SDL.

Nothing else, I'm very happy to contribute to this event.

Pretty fun game. Would be nice to know my final score before losing.

Thanks! It's one of the features I couldn't do in 48 hours. Otherwise, it was one of my firsts games in SDL (the first one was a mouse Tic-Tac-Toe) and I'm happy to had a good-working collision function (pixel perfect). The next time I'll take care the "scores" consideration before deliver the game. Thanks for playing it!

PD: sorry for my bad english!!!

There is a sweet spot which will let you survive indefinitely. Before discovering that, I could never survive longer that 5 seconds ;) It's really fast (maybe too fast) and it feels as if there is not always enough room to dodge the objects. I liked the simple graphics somehow :)

The game was definitely quite difficult until my laptop started overheating (not your fault, my laptop's fan isn't working properly or something) and I set it to Power Saver. Even though I was at almost 25,000 points it slowed the game waaaaaay down, making it much easier ;)
