Stickman vs the leap of faith

by brus46 - 48 Hour Compo Entry

You should use arrows to move, in the game you can see only a little bit around you, so finding the exit to the next level can be tricky.
I got inspired by the leap of faith in indiana jones.

There were a few noticeable bugs, like getting stuck to the ceiling while holding the jump button and the artifacts on the falling sprite. With some refinement I think this concept could be taken far.

That was sweet! the sound added a nice feel to it, the controls were a little weird but that's fine.
Good job.

I beat it! Level 3 (or was it 4?) gave me some trouble, but I pulled through in the end. Very unique idea. The yelling got a tad annoying, but it didn't ruin the game or anything. The one thing other thing that bothered me was the random black pixels at the top of the stickman's image when he is falling. Other than that I enjoyed your game :)

I suppose I should tone down my faith...
Nice game!

I like the faith concept but as a gameplay it feels more like random tries until you memorize the good path.

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.
