Cube Dinosaurs?

by PyroSneak - Jam Entry

Hi, this was my first Ludum Dare and I think I did alright. I made a little platformer in Unity3d and Blender for models. it's pretty simple, shouldn't take much explanation. well. here you go :)

Nice and Simple, good 3-d modeling work. Soundtrack could use some work. Nice job!

Had fun playing it. Good use of theme and dinosaurs. The soundtrack was minimalist, but doesn't work looping it as long as you have to. Could have used more potato. GREAT WORK!!

Game was quite amusing.

A decent game. Hit detection works most of the time (couple of times the helmet enemy hit me through the helmet) and the controls work (would have liked up for jump though). Soundtrack could use a bit more, though.

Also, that game over screen... D:<

Cute characters! I always appreciate a game involving dinosaurs. Love the big grin on the main character. :D
The lighthearted tutorial instructions were a nice touch.
The controls and physics felt pretty wonky though. Maybe try to speed up the movement or acceleration of the main character? I also didn't really get if I could jump on top of the helmet dudes as sometimes I took damage when landing on their heads, and sometimes I didn't. I also think I found a bug where I managed to respawn inside the big dinosaur after falling off the map. The music was a little repetitive and could use some further work.
Other than those issues, great work for your first entry! Keep making games with cool characters! :)

lol, hilarious, esp the music. I wish the collision with the "koopas" weren't so floaty, but it's fun =)

Game controls well, and the jaws look menacing when they approach you... the rest of the game could use some tuning,specially the music... even pacman has longer loops!

Simple minimalist game, I just love the graphics. It might be better if it was faster, just my personal opinion.

I like that you could "climb" back up ledges if you didn't make the jump

it was a fun game -- the controls could have been a little better -- great effort!

Nice art style. Solid effort. A good jump time is about .6-.7 secs (ie: it was floaty).

Cute graphics - loved the big dino chasing you down. I reckon you should speed up the action a bit and pull the camera back perhaps. Well done - nice entry!

Jumping feels weird, but still entertaining.

Cube Dinosaurs? Why yes, yes they are. Wish the platforming was a bit more varied, but the models were cute.

Music is perfect for the theme, and it synchronizes with animation XD. I discovered the loop changes at around 90 points, i couldn't get further, does it change again later?
For smoother object movement you can turn on linear interpolation for rigid bodies. Character controller needs more work.

May 2, 2013 @ 8:58pm

I think (perhaps this is just due to me getting old and losing my reflexes) but I'd like a bit more screen in front of the player so you have more time to react to oncoming dudes. Fun though!

Really cute game. The soundtrack can get annoying after a while, as the gameplay can get repetitive. Great job for a first LD though!

May 7, 2013 @ 3:41pm

Hey, cool game! Good job with the 3d modelling
The music was kind of annoying.. i tried muting it but it started playing again after a while :/
But yeah.. your attempts at making music was still better than mine.. i gave that up, so kudos to you! :P

Cute animation on the main character, and when the big dinosaur constantly chasing me was introduced it brought the game to a whole new level.

Good sense of humour and nice 3D work :)

PORTS: Ports to other platforms can be done after the deadline.

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.
