Only one life

by oojava - Jam Entry

Sorry its not original but we had fun, and learned a lot!

Me and my team (high school students sophomore year) will be back next time with something more... None of us knew anything about game dev but we pulled this off.. very happy with what some goggling can do... HUGE THANKS TO THE CHERNO (sors for caps but thats important he helped a lot with his vids).

To clear up any confusion we have all programmed before just nothing to do with graphics... This opened up a whole new world thanks again...

Thank you for all the comments I did know that some of the jumps spawned impossible (you can see the tiles by pressing q). Its quite rare so I put it off for, then ran out of time. Also there's a physics bug that allows you to fall and get back up if you time it just right.

First of all I think it's quite good for not having done graphics before, but there are some bugs: You have to click the screen to focus (not a big deal), and sometimes you get impossible gaps (you can't possibly jump over them).

Otherwise you made a good job :)

Well done guys! keep learning and improving. Btw if you're wondering why you're not getting any comments, you need to rate other people's games, and you'll be shown at the top of the list of games to rate. Also if you leave comments on the games you've rated people will go and check yours out!

Pretty good work considering none of you had ever made a game before. There were a couple gaps that I literally couldn't jump over but other than that, a pretty solid attempt at procedural generation of levels.

As a game this was just borderline horrible. The theme was implemented as merely an annoyance rather than a feature, graphics were crap, no sound, gameplay is almost impossible due to a terrible camera and bad controls. As a learning project, I'm sure this was a very succesful one though. Good effort!

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.
