YOGOTANK

by CodingNickNick - Jam Entry

-- Intro
You're a tank in maze, stranded without bullets. Luckily, the enemy tanks also don't have bullets, but they did deploy mines. Doens't matter, because your tank is equipped with jumping... thingies... Anyhow, jump over the mines and the enemies and make it to the end of the maze (which will always be in the bottom right).

TLDR: Jump over mines and enemies and make it to the bottom right of the maze.

-- How to play
WASD for rolling your tank (sorry for all the people not having WASD in the same shape as the QWERTY-users).
Spacebar to jump

-- How to h4xx!
Check the game-resources/yogo/configuration.txt for some things you can tweak about the game. With a bit of luck they are adjusted in real time, but some variables take a restart.

Linux: it works fine in wine! We developed this on Ubuntu 12.04LTS.
OSX: We also developed it under OSX, but we still can't create .app bundles, and fixing the shared-object linking by hand is really really tedious. Sorry.

Not really sure how it relates to the theme, but I found it surprisingly fun and the graphics look great :D

Really nice game, but the flickering of the light level really makes me a heddache and I don't understand, why this game is based on the theme.

Nice graphics and perspective, but a little unrelated to the theme.

Very fun game, jumping is confusing at first (have to be moving a bit to be able to jump), but I figured it out!

Overall, this game is fairly good, but I couldn't see myself playing for more than a few minutes at a time.

With regards to gameplay, not very interesting. Just a generic maze with a few obstacles placed in the way. The camera is jittery when transitioning from a stopped state to a moving state which was distracting. Also, jumping was unreliable in this transition as well.

The graphics were gorgeous and the audio was pretty good as well. It seems like there wasn't enough focus on the gameplay, however. Graphics, audio, story, et cetera are all important aspects, but I feel they shouldn't be the main focus of a game; that's left up to the gameplay.

Sometimes it's easy to lose sight of this, so try and focus on making the game fun to play next time and then polish the visuals if time permits. Keep on practicing, having fun, and do an even better job next time!

This is a pretty funny one - jumping tank, tanks that can't shoot, whacky physics - and it has nice presentation too.

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.

MORE TIPS AND DETAILS AT THE BOTTOM OF THIS PAGE

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 (http://mysite.com/mygame.zip) 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.
