30 Second Olympics

by vee41 - 48 Hour Compo Entry

Welcome to 30 second Olympics! Participate in jaw dropping athletic experiences like the 10 second long jump and 10 second javelin! Olympics like you've never experienced before; here we count the meters, not the time! Or actually we do count the time too.. but it's always 10 seconds!

Controls: A and D keys, you'll get hang of it :)

This is a game created in about 6 hours for LD27.
Everything by me, except:

Music generated with otamata generator (

Sounds generated with bfxr (

'Art' was created with inkscape. :)

All put together in Construct 2.

The game was supposed to be a lot more polished and include few more events, but did not have time to work on it Sunday at all. Thus, it appears quite prototypish more than final prototype I intended it to be, still very much playable though! :)

The CPU is way too difficult, and I had some issues when the game restarted. Otherwise its good.

Simple but hard game. The NPCs are really hard. And sometimes I couldn't even completely read the instructions before the game started...
Btw, if this is a compo entry, you need to provide a link to the source files :)

That really brought me back to my days of button mashing NES olympic games. I tried about 8 times, and couldn't beat the computer. However, it did keep me interested... it became my goal to beat the CPU in at least 1 event. Nice job for something made in such a short amount of time.

Nice simple mechanics, way too hard to win though.

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 ( 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.
