Room Rush

by rogerklotz - 48 Hour Compo Entry

Room Rush is a platformer where you can adjust how fast time passes. If you complete the level under 10 seconds you can advance to the next. See if you can beat my average time of 3.666 seconds for all 10 levels!

I originally wanted to have 2 modes, one where the speed mod affects the timer and one where it doesn't. Unfortunately, only had time for the former.

Tools/frameworks used: Libgdx, Eclipse, sfxr, audacity,, hiero

I may release an android version at some point.

Pretty fun! I tried to bum it through without using slow-mo and failed miserably and had to use it after all.

Avg time: 4.73 ;)

Yup, simple, but I liked it, especially the slo mo that made you feel awesome. perhaps away to control slo mo without the mouse?

Once I got to the finish line in the first level, the game сrashed. After that, it became immediately crashes during the next sessions.

Cool little game. Perhaps it's so fun because it's exavtly what I'd expect from a 10 seconds platform game. Nice!

@TheDreik and Ghostik, what OS are you on? There's an auto save feature so I'm guessing it's crashing when trying to save your progress... works fine for me on windows but haven't been able to test anything else.

Great platformer. I really love being able to adjust the slider to help with more intricate manoeuvres!

The game looks good, but when I finish the first level it crashes.

An excellent dashing platformer! The controls feel great and there are no glitches as far as I can tell. The blue acceleration zones are an interesting invention.

I like how the sounds slow down along with the rest of the game. Is that a libgdx feature, or did you have to supply slowed versions of each sound effect?

In spite of the simple graphics, it looks and feels very polished.

Quite fun. The time slider was a neat touch, but I feel like there should be limitations because in general you just want to go as slow as possible to perfect each jump, and there's little incentive to going quicker.

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 ( 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.
