Reactor Maintenance Simulator.

by Tetha - 48 Hour Compo Entry

Greetings, and thanks for cecking my game :)

In this game, you are a maintainer of the nuclear reactors on a ship, and damnit, all of them are about to blow in about 10 seconds! I'm not sure what happened there, but I think someone is currently consuming a lot of coffee for the day.

Enough chitchat, though, you have to control your crane using left/right/down arrow keys or by using ASD in order to pick the reactor up and throw it outta the ship. However, it's not that easy, sometimes you have to add control rods first to buy yourself some time, sometimes you have to work around some security doors some pointy hared boss wanted installed in the emergency reactor ejection system before we could toss him into the reactor (maybe that's why the reactors are acting up).

This was a lot of fun! I wish there were more levels, and a few sound effects.

Cool little puzzle! I agree with everyone, more levels and sound would make it even better.

Good concept, could have done with more levels and a little more challenge though.

Good game, the crane is a good idea ! Like a walmart crane game with nuclear core :) More levels would have been fun, but I understand the time constraint ! good work !

Very nice job! I love the concept, and it was done in such a way that it matched the theme. It would have been nice if there was some sound. But oh well. Good work. Keep it up!

had a lot of fun with this. Larger levels with a bit more maze feel might work.

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.
