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.

MiniMaulby CloudiestNights - 48 Hour Compo Entry
Note: I've uploaded a new build a couple of days ago, but I forgot to update with a new source as well. Now, I've been expanding on the game and don't have the new old source available. So, this source is outdated, and sadly can't be changed.
Update 2: Fixed a glitch where you can fall off the edge and not die. Now when you press Z or X on the main menu it takes you to the game without needing to click "Play."
Update 1: Aaand wow. I have already found a typo I missed that made the game unbeatable. Will update with the correct version shortly.
MiniMaul is a randomly-generated action platformer. The "random generation" part took a WHOLE lot longer than I thought -I also had no time this weekend- but the game luckily turned into something playable.
Move with the arrow keys, jump with Z, shoot a shuriken with X. Once you grab your shuriken off a wall, you get your double jump back. You need to run Mario style to the flag at the end of the level.
I think that, on average, this game took me about 10-12 hours to make. I would like to thank the wonderful creator of the "Sprite Something" app, which I used to make almost all the graphics.
Please comment on what you liked and what needs to be improved! I'm planning on lengthening this out with boss battles, more level segments, and a story.
Note: I did have GameMaker open past 9PM, and I think my habit of using "ctrl-s" before playing changed the date to 9:15PM. I hope that this is alright?

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.
