Tucker Tipps, Time Travelling Trucker

by springtangent - 48 Hour Compo Entry

I bit off more than I could with the time travel mechanics and wound up skimping on everything else. That said, I'm just glad I have something minimally playable with some passable sprites. This is my first finished entry.

move: W/A/S/D
fire: space
time travel: R


Tucker Tipps was a mild-mannered long-haul trucker until
he was abducted by aliens and sold for use in gladiatorial

Tucker was given only one tool to survive: an alien artifact
which allows up to 10 cumulative seconds of time travel.

Armed with this alien artifact and his considerable intellect,
he must survive a fight to the death with the dreaded (insert
monster name here).

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.
