The Mighty Runner

by Metal Axe - 48 Hour Compo Entry

* New Web and Windows files up, it should work now! *

Hopefully there will be no more file drama. :)

Run, jump, and headbutt giant blocks! All in the name of gathering a few balloons.
Move - WASD/Arrows
Jump - Space
Attack/Headbutt - Enter/Z (need to be running at the same time)

I couldn't run this. The webplayer page doesn't load on dropbox and the download only contains the .exe not the associated files. :(

The "Web" link is just an HTML file with a Unity logo. The "Windows" link downloads a MightyRunner.exe which when opened shows the following error:
Data folder not found
There should be 'The Mighty Runner_Data'
folder next to the executable

Well... you can't host a webplayer version this way...

Works for me. Hella hard game, which I'm cool with.

The sound effects and music mesh well together, but don't mix with the art style too much during gameplay. I did have a great deal of fun with this entry, however. Nice!

Awkward collision, and the controls could be more intuitive but otherwise a nice difficult and fun game.

I don't know why but I kept thinking the guy would run forwards on his own without the need for the W key being pressed.

It was a fun little game though :)

Fun game. It might be better to have the player press space instead of enter to start the game.

Very mediocre game. Simplistic graphics, sound, controls, concept. Could be better, but also could be worse :)

Sep 1, 2013 @ 10:08pm

Well, quite bad, maybe so bad that it's good, I'm not sure...

Some levels were hard to pass without the glitches in the game helping you boost the speed and fly high up in the air. The collision was pretty weird and the last level was extremely awkward because you can't look in another direction.

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.
