Pick-M

by Lim3s - 48 Hour Compo Entry

My first Ludum Dare entry. It's not amazing, but I'm glad I could put something out at all.

Nice mechanic of picking abilities, but the walljump was a bit wonky.

I really like the black on grey art-style. The wall jump was pretty tricky, but I got it eventually. I think the mechanic of adding/removing abilities could work great if you integrated it a little better - at the moment there's no reason not to just select every ability at the start of the level (also, no way to get back to the main menu without reloading), but maybe if you started off with basic abilities and had to collect new ones, or even trade them at the expense of others at appropriate points in the level?

Very innovative idea, and interesting take on the theme. The ability-picking would be more exciting if there was some sort of "point multiplier" or similar bonus for picking fewer abilities. And if every level could be beaten with only one ability (though with difficulty) to really show off your idea. Very well done though for the time we had :)

I also liked the idea of picking the abilities

I really wish this one had expanded on the ability picking concept. Great concept for your first LD, and the platforming seemed bug-free as far as I could tell. Good luck with future entries!

If developed further, and maybe taking some ideas like Blenno's into account, I could see this being a very fun little web game :) great first entry

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.
