Drop it and RUN

by Jackamikaz - 48 Hour Compo Entry

Mike is a fresh new explorer, so he has not really a lot of experience.
In his thirst for adventure, he decides to pack his stuff and go.
But he packed too much, and he's so heavy that his prudence became a danger!
Help him survive the jungle, shake his bag as good as you can to empty it.

Please, try the desktop version, as Box2D seems to behave differently on html5 (it is verry buggy)

The guy is adorable. I wonder how you could add levels and make it more skill oriented. Great job.

A bit short. More level would be welcomed. Good and fun concept anyway ! I liked :)

Kind of easy when you just shake the bag like a lunatic. Good concept though.

This game is a bit too easy :-)

Couldn't play the windows version game, as dropbox seems to have suspended your account: "This account's public links are generating too much traffic and have been temporarily disabled!". I'll check out the web version instead :)

Hey, it looks like your dropbox account got disabled so I can't download the windows version. I tried the browser version but box2d was freaking out. Looks awesome though!

I didn't understand everything i guess. I shake the bag then everything fall then it's finished.

Fun game! So I died a few times and then just completely emptied the backpack and won. Not sure if you intended on that or not.

Yes, it's easy. Yes, the tiniest movement makes the bag spaz out. I still played it like 5 times because it's hilarious. Good work.

It's very laggy on my computer, which makes it difficult to play. But the concept is very original and clever, and that's enough to satisfy me!

I updated the mouse sensitivity on the web version, it doesn't go as crazy as before so the gameplay is nearly what's expected

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.
