Jetpack Jackass

by SeanAtr0n - 48 Hour Compo Entry

You just got a brand new Jetpack! Think of all the amazing things you could do with it! The places you could go! The sporting events you could disrupt...

Unfortunately I had to cut the story animations as I was fighting several unity add-on bugs in the last few hours of the compo. Just pretend that you are a supervillain who threatened to filibuster the superbowl and was not taken seriously. (So now you must go delay the game to keep your villain cred)

Watch out for the players! They seem harmless at first, but they gradually slow you down. If you succeed in your filibusterery you will get a nice jetpack speed boost which can make cruising around the island a bit more fun.

Am I on drugs? Nice mood and quite polished, controls are fun too. Would be nice to have some indication of where the superbowl is though.

During the tutorial I felt confident about the controls and goals. I feel a little embarrassed to say in the next stage I was not sure how to make progress in the game.

It took me 3 tries before I found the superbowl but other than that it's a cool game. Nice idea too.

Nice tutorial! Sadly after that not to much to do :) Keeping finger crossed for some post LD extended version with fun quests.

I had no idea what I was supposed to do. Dodge players? Once I got caught, it seemed that I was stuck.

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.
