The Lonely Sentry: 10 Seconds of Love
The Sentry requires love fuel to power its rockets.
Sadly The Sentry can only find small capsules that provide 10 seconds of fuel.
Help the Sentry find the Grand Heart and have unlimited fuel to find his lost friends!
Controls are WAD or Arrow keys
Press R to restart if you die or get stuck
In executable jar, you can maximize window too! Far better performance than html5 port!
Poorly made video of the game start to finish(Its very laggy though :(
Thanks Everyone! I hope you enjoy!

NOTE: If you use the html5 version(Which I don't recommend) and you can't reach the top of the map(that says "FLY UP")(run out of fuel) The issue is lag, you should be using the executable jar version of the game, of the 10 computers and friends have tested, there is usually 3 seconds of fuel left. However if your computer is running laggy or low frame rates(due to streaming/video recording) you will likely at best make it there with -1 fuel(e.g. you won't make it there)

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 (http://mysite.com/mygame.zip) 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.
