Warp Runner

by Raphy - 48 Hour Compo Entry

First Ludum Dare ! Hope you guys enjoyed it !

There are 8 levels with walls, ennemies and laser beams at the end ! It's kindda hard to beat the last levels, but you should try it !

You are a prisonner that has decided to escape a futuristic prison. But who cares ?

This is a runner where you only get one button to warp the character ! Space to warp.

I really enjoyed doing it. Thanks for playing !

Cool concept. The controls are so-so, but I liked the idea. Maybe add some warp effect to make it look better?

It reminds me of Velocity Ultra! :D Did you ever played it? :D

the splash screen graphics are great, it would be cool to carry over more of that look into the game - that monochrome look is neat.

Hey thanks for the comments ! Alan I never played VelocityUltra no :)
mcapraro yeah I am satisfied with the graphics (idea came from a pixel art I saw) but actually it took me too much time to make ! If I had to do it again I don't think I would spend as much time on the graphics, but more on the level design.

I like the environments!

Interesting art ! It could have been nice to be able to choose in which lane to go.

I like it, though the warping felt pretty laggy at times. Enough to make me run into walls a lot more than I thought I would.

Game mechanic is solid and fun. But I thought I was going to die when hitting the walls. Instead you carry on - so that was a bit underwhelming. Then again, I really wanted this game to be tough tough tough like Canabalt :) Overall, warping is a great concept and I think you could pursue this idea further!

Nice concept! I think if you put sound effects to game maybe be better... :)

Cool graphics, are Flashback style. The game is very entertaining and you could make a version for mobile phones!

Nice looking game. I think the gameplay would work better if the warping was more responsive, especially the times where you need to warp 2+ times quickly.

Best addictive game so far, good job.

Pretty good, liked the lane switching. the warping itself felt a bit slow though, but that could be me.

Thanks for the nice feedback ! By the way, the game is hard, especially after the level 5 or 6.

The art looks great and the game mechanics are good. However, the order the lanes change might use some tweaking in my opinion. You could also try to make the warping more responsive.

I love the vertical spawn mechanic in this game. The run animation was very smooth too!

Nice idea. Controls seem a bit laggy.

Quite good game ;) I saw background's connect points, I think you should repair it because it looks a little ugly ;) Controls are some unconfortable, and a shame that there is no music ;) Anyway, I think is good game like a first LD entry, I wish you good luck! Cheers ;)

Really liked the graphics style; I think that runners should feel a bit more fast paced though -- the downside to hitting a barrier didn't feel like enough of a disincentive.

The linux version deosn't run. It looks like you mistakenly packaged the windows one in the linux download

Dec 26, 2013 @ 3:26am

Cool idea, the graphics are well done. It's a nice game !

No sound:(

It seems there's no consequence for getting stuck on a wall, either.

Keep polishing!

Thanks for all the comments !

For the ones saying that there is no consequences getting stuck on a wall, can you please play for more than one minute ?
There is limited time to finish levels and there are deadly walls (ennemies) starting after a few levels...

Pretty awesome warping mechanic. Also you should definitely do an endless/survival mode.

Uh, WINE is crashing and the title screen looks so seducing.

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.

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.
