Treasure Run

by The Jahn - 48 Hour Compo Entry

The instructions are in the game.

Additional tidbits:
> If it's slow, try downloading and running the SWF directly. No idea why it's so slow in browser but eh.
> Try Wimp Mode if it's a bit too hard for you.
> Try Programmer Mode if it's a bit too easy for you.
> Try Morgan Freeman mode if you don't care much for dying.
> All levels are procedurally generated.
> They are also all possible if you play well. I did some fancy math stuff to make sure.
> I'm going to go have a celebratory beer. Cheers! Good job, everybody!

Hard, but well done.

Thanks for the different difficulty levels. I loved how happy the main character was... nice job making clear and usable graphics that still looked great. Nice dungeon generation too!

Very hard indeed, which is a good thing. Also nice looking dungeons. Random generated? that's insane.

A very solid game! Quite fun to play! Hard of course, but it's ok.

Extremely hard, but really addictive.
I played for at least 30 minutes before I realized that I should leave a rating.

The controls were a bit slippy for me so I quit.

Really challenging. I feel like the gems should give 2 seconds xD But it's a lot of fun ^^

The gems do give 2 seconds in Wimp Mode. Stun time and how much the sludge slows you is also decreased.

Difficult but it's exactly what I like about it, awesome!

Nice music. I suck at the game, but did 3-4 levels? The electricity gates really tripped me up :)

Tough game is fun. But also tough. And fun. Really addictive. Cool music too :)

Pretty challenging game! I'm not sure if it was intentional or not but the background music and the timer beep were synced in such a way it felt like they were playing off each other. Art could use some more polish but the random generation was a nice way to keep trying over and over! Good stuff!

Haha, yeh that was intentional. Thanks for noticing. c:

I wanted a lot of rhythm in the design so I synced up as much stuff as I could to the timer - the music included. Other things include the electric gates(1hz), the arrow rotating (2hz), and the amount of time it takes you to travel between rooms (*about* 1hz, given the speed of the character's movement, assuming optimal play and no obstacles).

Just felt like it emphasized the tension of the clock's ticking to me.

Difficult in default mode.

It was fun for the first few stages, but then there's not much difference. Still, quite good for 48 hours!

Pretty fun and great music! Really hated the lasers though.

Nice music. I really appreciated the rhythmic consistency of the elements in the world. From what I could tell, the game lacked any sort of difficulty ramp up (of perhaps I'm just not good enough to make it that far) which can result in things stating to feel a bit stagnant. Nice work. High score: 59.

This is super hard, but cool. Great audio.

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.

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.
