App Escape

by L - 48 Hour Compo Entry

Thumbing through your smartphone at midnight during a thunderstorm on Saturday the 13th wasn't as safe an activity as you thought, because somehow you've been zapped into the incredibly deadly world of your phone's menu screen. Fortunately you've installed the app that will let you escape, but can you reach it before your lives run out??

Controls: Arrow keys to move. Spacebar to skip cutscenes.

Cool idea and well implemented. Reminds me of Animator vs Animation on deviant art. Two thumbs up :)

There were some neat things. idk if my character was slow intentionally, but I was always killed by something I had no control over.

Trippy man! I love the intro, but felt a bit slow at the start (climbing).

I got stuck at the level 2, on the instant messaging app. Nevertheless, that's a funny game, with good ideas !

*▼ Spoiler alert ▼*

Hint : if you want to skip level 2, just go to the left and hit the Speech app (the pink one, with the lips on it).

I like the art and I love the humor and the randomness but, IMHO, I don't think it is very minimalist, but still good...

Original idea. Movement felt a little bit slow. Nice game.

Interesting idea. Like everyone else, I felt like I was moving through mud.

Very cute! I'll never look at "Help" the same way...

Pretty funny game. Movement was slow and such, but that wasn't the point of the game, so I didn't mind.

Quick and funny. Too bad there isn't much interactivity.

Interesting, but a bit too slow for me.

The gameplay was pretty much nonexistent, but otherwise the game was really clever and fun

Hehe, funny stuff. Not very relevant to the theme, but I appreciate your thought for story.

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.

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 (http://mysite.com/mygame.zip) 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.
