You Can Only Move

by sellsword - 48 Hour Compo Entry

It's a little rough, but this is as far as I'll get with an hour left on the clock.

I was kinda stumped by the theme but settled on an ASCII roguelike that I intended to be like an arcade game. Quick rounds and you get scored. Built with libtcod, my source is included (it's a bit sloppy :p). Enjoy.

Interesting game, seems rather unfinished but I had a bit of fun with it for a bit.

I really like it. I always wanted to make a rogue-like myself. It seems nice and solid what you have created. Very inspiring. Good stuff.

Generation is cool the enemies could use a little bit of a wandering ai though.

Unfortunately I can't rate this one since it's Windows only.

Looks like a great start. I feel like rogue-likes have a lot of early investment in development time. Map generation, input, combat basics, etc. Looks like you have a lot of that done, should be a nice springboard to continue working on.

Also, please allow the user some sort of key-down repeat so that I don't have to tap 1000 times to run across the room. ;)

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.
