Welp, my second Ludum Dare entry is done, and I'm not particularly happy with it (it pretty much wound up being a rushed version of the platformer I started not too long ago, but the code is quite different, so I probably can't even reuse much of it...) Well, if you can't tell from the screenshot, this game is 1-bit, which I figured is about as minimal as you can get (well, besides text adventures, but I can't write, so...). I was originally going to write an authentic 1-bit song with Beepola, but I decided against it, as most 1-bit games only have a little jingle at the start at most. There's only one (rushed) level, as I ran out of time. Sorry. Maybe I'll continue this game with the platformer engine I'm writing, although probably not...

Haha, I liked the ending. Unfortunately I'm not sure if there's anything too innovative here. Was kind of fun to play though! Good job for getting it done

It's actually a really nice game, sound's a must in platformers, so I would've wanted to hear 1 bit music/effects

nice little platformer; a bit buggy though, mostly the collisions and the fact that sometimes the character seems to randomly jump.

That's a little bit minimal in graphics.... minimalism theme respected and not a mondrian reuse, that's good ;)

I really liked the monochrome graphics & a nice ending too. :-)

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.
