I Need The Cheese or I Will Die

by JimMakesGames - 48 Hour Compo Entry

Silly platform game in which you might evade or kill enemies and get a piece of cheese in each level. Each level lasts ten only seconds before you die of cheese deprivation.

Watched a lot of the stream, looks like it came together very well in the end. I'm glad you didn't aim too far and get a head of yourself.

Good work on this Jim! I saw bits of the stream here and there, looks like it all came together nicely. The graphics are very reminiscent of the Amiga days, and I enjoy the quirky sense of humour.

Movement feels pretty great (though jumping is a bit floaty). Simple game but executed really well.

Really nice work. Liked the sprites and the gameplay although I do think jumping could be tweaked a little.

This is the first game that's ever made me want to eat cheese. Especially enjoyed the last level with the pit!

Nice and simple oldschol game that reminds me of the dos era apogee platformers. Good job!

You've managed to nail my favorite genre. Platformers featuring aliens who need a constant supply of cheese to survive.

I like how the levels get tougher progressively. I got through some levels through pure luck! :P
Love his dying animation, if that doesn't sound too sadistic.

Nice work - love the graphics. I jumped out of the level on one of them, and fell in infinity ;)

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.
