Mind The Gap

by amymist - Jam Entry

A simple platformer and the first game I have ever "completed."
Movement is with the arrow keys, and you can stick out your cane with X and use it to grab ledges.

I liked the gentleman fox a whole bunch. I got stuck at a jump to a high lever (the first lever). I couldn't see how it was possible.

Yeah, my biggest concern was that how to do that would be kind of a pain to figure it out. Also the controls messing up doesn't help, but if you use the cane at the peak of the jump you can hook it over the edge and jump up from there.

Fun for a while, the controls are really buggy and one of the levels I got stuck at where his torso vanished and then i couldn't even make it to the first platform. If you can make the controls more solid then it will be a lot better.

At first i thought it was just a basic platformer but really enjoy the cane mechanic.

Took me a while to figure out and when I was trying to climb over a lot of obstacles the fox would glitch out or refuse to jump. Pretty fun otherwise and nice aesthetic, however, the game becomes unplayable after the 4th level

Loved the fox character! Kept getting stuck on stuff throughout the level though.

the idea with the umbrella was neat.
the more I player, the glitchier it became.
in the end I only saw the fox head, shoes and the umbrella, on purpose.

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.
