Leap Guy: The Later Years

by Perspicacity1 - 48 Hour Compo Entry

Many years have passed since Leap Guy was last called to action. Time has taken its toll but he probably still has at least one good leap in him. Luckily Leap Guy still has his trusty hammer and carpentry skills to aid him!

Can he rescue the Princess from the evil King Gunn?

Z - Leap
X - Hammer
C - Place Wall
A - Pick up Wood
S - Place Bridge
Left/Right Arrow: Move Left/Right
Up (Press) - Climb (When next to wall)

How to play: Since Leap Guy has only one leap left in him he must traverse the level on ground. You can climb up walls by repeatedly pressing up. Hitting enemies with your hammer or landing on them will reduce them to wood scraps.

Wood scraps can be used to make walls to block enemies or bridges to cross gaps. So long as a bridge is touching a surface it will (very likely) not fall.

I don't quite understand what you're supposed to do...

Haha found the most ironic bug, when climbing a wall keep on pressing up and you'll be able to fly!

The last level was definitely the best. Flying fast through a narrow tunnel, making sure not to touch the ceiling, the floor, the platforms, or the bullets, was quite fun, even though that's probably not how it's intended to be played.

IMPORTANT NOTE: If you want to place in the final results, you NEED votes. The easiest way to get votes is by rating other games. Judging lasts for 3 weeks following the end of Ludum Dare. For best effect, rate 20 games as soon as possible. Rating more games is encouraged.


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.
