Fire Damp

by uprightpath - 48 Hour Compo Entry

You are a Knockerman, one of the crazy fools who goes down into the deep mines where gasses have built up and blow them so that other dwarves can keep working. You have a plan though, you're looking to win the eye of a beautiful maiden, rather than get to be king like most people like you become!

The Game: You work around inside of a randomly generated mine. The amount of gas in a tile is designated by the height of green in it. Only tiles that are 50% full can be ignited. An ignited gas patch will spread, burning as it goes!

Controls by Icon
Arrow: buttons move your dwarf.
Candle: Lights a fire directly in front of you.
Fire Ball: Shoots an (invisible) ball of fire in front of you. It moves at one tile per turn and stops moving after three tiles.
Hour Glass: Waits a turn, used to allow the fire to burn out!
Circle Thing: Allows you to turn your dwarf by holding it and pressing an arrow. (Used for Android multi-tap controls).

Working on Win Conditions and on putting in a keyboard control! (I'll upload them as a separate link.)

I liked it! It definitely needs more work, though. As you already know, the win condition needs to be implemented.

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.
