10 Second Mayhem

by jackw899 - Jam Entry

This is my first ever completed game! I am pretty happy with it.
I had a lot more ideas but I just didn't have time to do everything I wanted!

The 10 second theme is implemented as an event that happens every 10 seconds, either a bomb drops on you or you get spiked.

There is just 1 level on the game, you have to work out which order to open some doors because it is not as simple as it seems!

Mac and Linux has not been tested however I believe it should work!

Got to wait for bitbucket to change my repo to public then I will add links for bitbucket download!
edit: set the main links to bitbucket

Mega Links

There is a bitbucket and mega link so if one doesn't work please try the other! :)

You should replace win/linux/mac with Mega / bitbucket

It is a nice first game, and it seems like it has some cool level design, but sometimes my keys get eaten up even though the door doesn't open!

Final score: 87! I was almost dead when I found my way though the maze. I wish I could evade the bombs / spikes with good timing. I like the fact that I had to use the keys in the correct order.
Good job!

Thanks everyone for playing! Very nice score Cthulhu!

SasoriDama I can't seem to reproduce that bug, maybe you are just not opening the doors in the correct order? :)

Pretty little game. I would like animations to the character. But he was cute :)

Downloaded the zip, unzipped it, and tried to run the game, but nothing happens... :/

Can't seem to get either version to start up on a mac for some reason. I'll have to revisit this one on Windows.

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.
