Burrito Blaze

by Skye - 48 Hour Compo Entry

Well it looks like it's another boring day at work. Might as well make a burrito. What's the worst that could happen? A fire you say?

Use WASD to run away from the fire while eating burritos to keep your energy up. Make sure not to eat the poison ones!

Try to beat my highscore of 96.7 seconds!

I use the Windows version, unfortunately, as soon as the intro is finished and the word Start appear, the game close :(

Lost at 68.08 seconds. I used the windows version, and the game quality is good. The sound FX are interesting to say the least, lol. Overall it's good quality

sorry for some problems. Seeing if I can get the HTML5 version working correctly now for universal play

Very addictive game, I liked it!
But I find that the acid mode (after 60 seconds) rely too much on luck, often there are so many green burritos that you can't possibly go through. Also the hit box is too large, you can take burritos without touching them.

On Linux I had a few problems to make it work. First the .sh failed with the error:
> Error: Unable to access jarfile /home/fractal/LD27/Burrito
> : numeric argument requiredxit: 0

So I tried `java -jar "Burrito"', and it worked, except that I got a NumberFormatException which was due to the fact that I use a locale using , as a decimal separator.

In the end, I had to run the command `LC_ALL=C java -jar "Burrito"'

Acid mode was a result of the algorithm that I used to spawn burritos going a little insane after collecting a lot of them. It's not based on time, just burritos

so it turns out that the HTML5 version is completely broken when it comes to sprite animation. I may work on that later but for now it will remain on desktop platforms only

Game crashes as soon as "Go!" disappears. I would give 5 to humor though because I laughed uncontrollably when I saw the intro at the beginning

Skye says ...

I've figured out why it's crashing. I'll see if I can do something about it soon

Awesome intro, and quite addictive gameplay!

The game just up and closes on it's own sometimes. Other times I had just eaten a normal burrito and got the "you got dead" screen. otherwise it seemed to run clean. The intro text at the very start built high hopes on visuals, but your programmer art cutscene was a harsh reality :P

Very funny! The music got a tad annoying, but the gameplay was pretty good.

I hate when my burritos get too hot.

I don't even know what to say about this game. It's great. Man, I could go for a burrito now.

not bad, great intro and fun game play. Acid mode was pretty intense but maybe a little too hard due to the number of burritos

Very fun! I'm not entirely sure why my burrito can only be the optimal temperature while I am alive, nor why my burrito is worth dying for at all, but it doesn't matter.

Loved acid mode - I lasted all of 3 seconds.

Love the intro. Gameplay is simple but kept me playing long enough to get to Acid Mode a couple of times, but I never beat it. It's too frustrating having to restart, especially since there are about 5-10 seconds at the start of the level where there's basically nothing happening. Maybe pick up the pace at the beginning, and make the poison burrito penalty not so harsh?

not a lot of game CONCEPTS make me laugh, but there's something about the magic of burritos that hit the mark

Game closed when I hit "Play Again", but other than that it ran fine

Nice! Got to 60s then hit a dreaded green burrito!

look out for burritos -- nice game

I've been working on the game a bit to get rid of the bugs. So far I've fixed the issue with it closing after clicking "play again" and I have it find the correct symbol for the OSs locale for the decimal seperator

Hahah ! Great backstroy! Player mechanics are solid but gameplay gets a little to repitive to soon. Still solid entry overall!

aww, it just closes the game after the count down at start :(

Game will crash after the intro, when the timer reaches "go!".

Haha, the intro made me laugh. The game itself was pretty fun too. At first I was like "Well, this is incredibly easy". then it turned Acid Mode and I died almost instantly :) GG.

This is a funny concept. The intro is a nice touch and overall the gameplay is fun. The animation on the character is a bit wonky and it starts off a bit too easy. The music doesn't quite loop properly and there's also the issue of burritos overlapping. This is a good attempt and I hope you keep up with these funny game concepts

Wooooaaaaah! An acid flashback! D:
As has been said, the hitbox on the (green) burritos is too big.
Overall, I liked it :)
