Jump!

by Monofraps - 48 Hour Compo Entry

Jump!

It's simple. Just use A and D to move the character, hit Space to jump and complete as many levels as possible.

A level consists of a specific (increasing) amount of red platforms. The current level will decay within 10 seconds. You have to reach a blue platform in order to "unlock" and access the next level.
While jumping through the world you will find items such as coins or speed boosts.

Time, collected coins and the level reached will be taken into account when calculating your total score.

- Please check the help section in the game menu for more information.

Update 8/26/13:
I added another web build (Web 2) with different quality settings. I hope that fixes issues with jerky cameras.

Fairly solid physics engine, reasonably fun. Only major complaints would be that the (powerup?) actually makes the game more difficult, and that it's a little too easy to reach the end of a level before time runs out.

Nice and simple game. Sadly, the camera jitters around now and then and the gem really makes the game harder to control. Still, nice premise.

Thanks for the feedback so far.

I'm not sure what the camera issue is all about but it seems to be a Unity related problem. Reloading the page seems to fix it (sometimes).

The powerups/boosts are actually supposed to make it more difficult as kind of a balancing factor. The number of platforms increases with every level. However, the maximum amount is 12 (or 13, can't remember :P ). I chose this number because the few beta testers I had started to struggle if I added more.

Nice one! I like the physics. Some music would make this game way better.

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.
