Godio the Trickster

by scorder - 48 Hour Compo Entry

Second Ludum Dare.

If you ever wonder what to do, press "SPACE"

Since this is a HTML5 game, it seems you are better off trying it out with Chrome.
This is confirmed on my laptop where Firefox is choppy and without any sound...

I was not very happy with my entry last time, a lot of time was lost getting used to the language and libraries.
This time too, I wanted to get a feeling for another technology. And I ended up losing go much time in the same way. So here it is, as good and bad as it is :D

Nice work! It was a bit frustrating due to the slow movement, but I think there's potential. Just try make the movement more fluid, it'll help a lot. I want to feel like a ninja when playing these kind of games :)

I liked the grabbing spots and overall gameplay. Speed didn't bother me much, it felt like it was more precise, at least to me. Nice job!

Is there a trick to getting past the third pit? I've tried like 10 times now.

Thanks for your comments!

I have had quite a nightmare understanding how the collision engine of Crafty works, so there are still issues here.

Specifically, you will be able to step completely off the platform before you fall.
That's the trick for the last pit; you have to jump at the very last moment, and do the "double-jump" near at the highest point, and you will be able to grab on the opposite ledge.

The jumping was a little bit slow - and it took me a second to work out you could double jump - I wasn't able to get past that final put on the first level thogh

Nice little game. I love the ledge grab - very impressive.

IMPORTANT NOTE: If you want to place in the final results, you NEED votes. The easiest way to get votes is by rating other games. Judging lasts for 3 weeks following the end of Ludum Dare. For best effect, rate 20 games as soon as possible. Rating more games is encouraged.


REMEMBER: The “Theme” category is only for the main theme (You are the Villain). Don’t penalize for not using Goats.

TEAMS: Teams entering the Jam should pick a single representative to submit your game, or create a team specific account you can share. We currently do not support Team Voting, but sharing an account and together playing and rating games is acceptable.

NOT LOGGED IN?: If you get a message about not being logged in, even though you are, it’s because your web browser cached the non-logged in page. You can fix this by either refreshing your cache or clearing your cache. CTRL+F5 in many browsers. Chrome is a bit more work. Press F12 to enable Developer Mode, then you can right click on the refresh button and select “Empty Cache and Hard Reload”. This option is unavailable if you are not in Developer Mode.

We’ve identified the problem, and should have the page caching bugs fixed for next Ludum Dare.

PORTS: Ports to other platforms can be done after the deadline. That said, the sooner you finish your port, the sooner people can play your game, improving your chances of placing in the final results. For best results, provide a Web version of your game, or a Windows version with no dependencies. Also be sure to rate about 20 games to improve your visibility.

MY GAME DOESN’T SHOW UP: If you can’t find your game, it’s usually because the URL to your downloads are missing ‘http://‘. Fix your URLs ( and you will show up.

MY GAME CRASHES, IS UNBEATABLE, OR I MADE A TYPO: We allow you to fix crash or win condition bugs after the deadline (in a sense, like “porting” to support more players). We also allow “typo” bugs. I.e. A true that should have been a false, a word that should have been a different word, very tiny changes that you would have caught if you had more sleep. We leave this open to interpretation, but generally speaking your game should be identical to the game you submitted. No new features, just things you messed up last minute. Typos.
