Action Movie: The Game

by poohshoes - 48 Hour Compo Entry

You are strapped into a chair, you must jiggle yourslef free, but don't cause the precariously balanced bomb to fall while your at it. "Action Movie : The Game" has everything you could ever want in a game, explosions, fast cars, and escapes. All of it crammed into the theme of "10 Seconds."

Fun game! With a bit better graphics this could be an amazing experience :) Always wanted to parachute out of a car with explosions behind me.

I very much enjoyed this - it took me a while to work out how to jiggle free, and the puzzle element made me want to succeed :D

Honestly, games like these are the reason I like LD so much. There are tons of generic platformers and such (I mean, there's nothing wrong with that, I made one too in April), but this one is among my favorites so far. Very short, not a lot of content or gameplay, but it's cool as hell.

I love the concept, the execution was a little rough around the edges. I must have made that dynamite fall a dozen times before getting it (and even then, there wasn't much to it. It's just a matter of "getting it"). I also crashed that car a bunch of times before noticing the parachute pack. I thought that it was just part of the background. I enjoyed the mouthed sound effects.

Hardest part was trying to not knock the explosives off the shelf. Drove off the cliff a few times before figuring out that he didn't already have the parachute. The parachuting at the end was a nice touch. Fun idea, well executed and of course realistic sound effects :)

My favorite part of this game is how I win if I don't have the parachute. That's probably a glitch, but I think that's just funny. Loved it.

Wow, this is really quite intense, I only made it by the skin of my teeth. With polish this could really become something quite special. Overall a really fun and unique game!

The best are the sound effects :D

Great sound effects and good use of the theme. Fun to slowly figure out the 'correct' action sequence to escape.

Aug 30, 2013 @ 3:40am

I really liked this! I truly felt like an action hero escaping that bomb! Good work!

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.
