Sniff

by Adrian - Jam Entry

You're a drug dealer, and you need to deliver your Snow to your customers. Luckily they spend most of their time in a loud night club. Use the music to find your way in the city, but beware: those damn cops are patrolling all around...

By the way, as a dealer you shouldn't do that but... That powder you carry... It can give you nice powers, and make you see weird things. Just keep in mind: no supply, no business.

Move around with directional keys, [ZQSD] or [WASD]. Use <Space> to speed up and <Ctrl> to throw some coke and make cops around you see poneys.

This game was created by 5 people. It was developed using Flixel, a Flash game engine. This is our first Ludum Dare but not our first game jam.

I like the idea behind the game (story wise XD. really I had to laugh), the graphics are nice and comically, the game concept is simple. Though, already in the third level, I started to feel like it is a bit repetitive.

Funny entry! It's built around a really weird theme, but once you get the controls the gameplay actually makes sense :P. Speaking of the theme, it was "minimal" house music right?! I really enjoyed the idea of using sound as a core gameplay element.

On the downside I found the game kinda hard, but maybe my technique of simply sniffing coke to rush past the cops is just a bad one... Also it's a bit frustrating to go back to level 1 after each death.

Anyway it's a good job overall! Vive les lyonnais ;)

Nice graphics and atmosphere. Tricky but not impossible to get around without using anything.

I was not fan of the drug theme, but the execution make it funny. Various good ideas like the hidden streets or the balance between speed/protection/goal. Nice arts too.

Innovative concept, nice graphics (I especially like the hallucinations and the Game Over screen), and great audio. The way your breathing speeds up after you hit the snow is a nice touch, and I find the music quite catchy.

The only downside is that it's really hard. As others have said, some checkpoints would come in handy. Try as I might, I keep dying on level 2. (Clearly, I need to do more cocaine.)

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.
