A Cheap Atari Game

This a a Cheap Atari Game...

(Please! Press F11 to Full Screen it!)
Ok, this game was supposed to have more levels, more exploration, more enemies, more bosses and more everything... But it didn't. I had all the mechanics done, a second level done, but for the time sake i made some cutbacks (a lot of) to finish the game to the compo. Tomorrow i'll work, so the jam is not possible. I felt like i cheated the Ludum Dare, giving a so cheap and incomplete alpha of a game. But i had to finish it, my second LD without a game. NO! This have to finish now! So whith you... A Cheap Atari Game!

The game is fun! The minimalism, is it mostly that its pixels or what is the minimalism part of the game? The music is good, though maybe doesn't fit to the game?

With the music and animations and overall style, you manage to create a little world. I like it.

Nice full-featured platformer. Good graphics and sound. The sound effects are a bit too loud in comparison with the music.

Fun game! Checkpoints would be nice though. I was killed by the boss at the end and it put me back to the start :(

Nice start for a larger game. You had enemy variety, boss, water, items, swinging things. You just need time to develop it more.

Nice, I actually beat the boss and got the End screen. Reminded me a lot of Castlevania.

Fun atari style, a bit like Pitfall II, maybe... :)

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.
