One Legged Jonny

by ChuiGum - Jam Entry

I haven't finished yet, as you can see there aren't any instructions. There isn't a goal in the game either, yet. So this is just a little sneak peek I guess. I'm still working on it though. I was originally shooting for the Compo but I needed to add some more stuff before I could submit it. You Only Get One... Leg ;) One Legged Jonny...


Arrow Keys to Move Left and Right
Z to shoot
Space to Jump
Up Key to use Jetpack

(P Key to "Play" by the way)

If you already have LOVE(Awesome Lua Framework) then download the "Windows(LOVE)". If you don't have LOVE, download "Windows(.exe)".

-Enjoy c:

I can't get over the spiky things! I can't move/jump high enough :(

Unable to open because the EXE is not shipped with the necessary DLLs.

I also did not have necessary DLLs :(

It's quite a basic platformer. The game unfortunately crashed for me.

Wha, has the necessary Dlls... Why isn't it working? It worked before and now that I try it it freezes up... I'll try to fix it as soon as possible

Executable crashes but the LOVE file works.

Very simple gameplay and graphics. I ran the LOVE version, and the game freezes for a while when I start it, but then it ran fine.

I can't open the game, sorry. Good luck next time!

Interesting idea, great art. Getting over those spikes was seemingly impossible without the jetpack so probably should just give that to the player straight up.

Hey javifugitivo, both downloads work. One didn't work yesterday but I fixed that last night. So yeah I'm not sure why you couldn't open the game. Did you download the .exe one?

I think I "won" since I got to the right of the spikes and could just keep running forever :) There seems to be a problem by the way where spikes would spawn earlier than the jetpack; is it possible to jump over them without a jetpack?

Sometimes the spikes are before the jetpack making it impossible to play. The one leg idea is innovative, but executed as a basic Duke Nukem styled platformer takes that innovation away. Well done on the theme though.

Looks neat - I'm on OSX though and can't try it.

Got to start screen, couldn't hit 'Play'.

So I managed to play the game, but the mechanics were pretty simple, or at least appeared so, and it seemed rather difficult to make any kind of progress. The one leg also didn't really come through in the gameplay, at least not as far as I got.

I had a really tough time jumping over the pillars without the jet pack! You might also want to make the start button something other than "P" :)

Pretty difficult game, really challenging. It should have a rund option for making it more fluid. But nice job! :D

OH no i see whats wrong that he has only one lag lol. Im sorry for this misintepretation. However, I still think that it should be easier to jump over those spikes!

The LOVE file should run on other OS than Windows, I ran it on OS X pretty well. It was very hard to jump over the "spears", I never really managed to do it.

Same as others, I couldn't get over the spikes without the jetpack, and spikes would spawn in front of the jetpack more often than not.

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.
