10 seconds to run

by Geekstory19 - 48 Hour Compo Entry

This is my first participation of the Ludum Dare.
I made a little game.
In the game, the player must travel the road in a minimum of time.
For player, use the directional keys or Z, Q, S, D.
I composed two lumps of music for 10 seconds (to listen in the game)
I made this game with canvas and javascript.

I kinda liked the game. It was a little short, the graphics where "Ok". The controls where a little weird as you couldn't hold down the buttons. But awesome game. :P

I like the idea - it could be a game about optimising the route. Still the time limit works worse than move limit here, especially if controls are strange, and there are wrong hittests on map.

Trying to figure out the fastest of multiple routes could've been a nice next step to this.

Do something with those controls, man...

Not bad. The character sprites are pretty decent. Don't let your age lower your expectations, though.

Being "just 17" is no excuse, man. If you know your game is not the best you can do, do better! Don't give up! Good luck on your next game!

I'm sorry, it's just a recurring problem with my web host that appear from time to time, it usually back one hour later.

Still seeing the error hours later. You should just upload it on Dropbox or something.

Nice start to LD, the controls need to feel a lot sharper but you made something and that's not nothing!

A good little game for a first entry. It could definitely use some more levels, but that is true of pretty much all LD games. Hope to see more games from you in the future :)

Good start.
You have to work with your collision problems, and add some dangers or chalenges to your levels.

Nice first game. A lot of things to improve but it is a good start.

Aug 31, 2013 @ 2:32pm

Good job finishing your first game. It worked fine for me, and the path finding was a cool idea!
It was pretty buggy though, which was a shame. Also, I think it would have worked better if the controls worked by holding down a button, and not pressing it again and again.

Nice first game! I like the graphics and that you made the game with javascript to keep it runnable on all systems. I didn't like the unresponsiveness of the controls and that the music wasn't always playing for me. I hope you have some time to improve the game, maybe in preparation for the next ludum dare!

That was... okay, I guess.

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.
