Ladder Rush

by JokerSushi - 48 Hour Compo Entry

This game is a very simple game, and my first 48-hour (although I started a bit late) one. The aim is simple, climb ladders, survive as long as you can and avoid flashing ladders and platforms. They flash as soon as you land on them.

There were a few things I couldn't get done, although I detest that you might think the green blob wasn't on purpose. Of course it was. I insist. The game plays ok, but there is the occasional time you get stuck, and the timer doesn't freeze, but it is playable enough :)

I hope you enjoy this simple, completely 100% intended game.

It was a good first game. Could have used some music ect. But otherwise it was well executed for what it was. Good job!

Nice entry. I like the concept of the "three flashes". This was a fun little game.
I didn't really like how you had to be perfectly centered on the ladder to be able to climb it, but I suppose that made it a little more challenging. Good luck with the rest of the voting!

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.
