Unstoppable Conqueror Love Loot

by adamagb - 48 Hour Compo Entry

Use up/down/left/right keys to jump, duck and walk left/right

You automatically kill everything in your path and gain +1 loot for every kill

Dodging an enemy makes you drop loot

Loot will slow you down so be MINIMALISTIC, you want to avoid killing things and hoarding unnecessary junk

This is a nice twist on the endless runner schtick - I liked balancing killing with not killing. My only suggestion, to make it a bit more challenging, would be to make it so you can't move left and right while holding up or down. That way you have to position yourself to avoid the vertical enemies. Great idea, though!

I like the idea of managing the loot which change the aim, killing or avoiding. It could have been interesting to have a score at the end.

Not a bad idea, but.... lots of stuff, and needs sound, too ...

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.
