She Only Has One Day

by sjames_93 - 48 Hour Compo Entry

SPACE to Jump

A 2D platform runner using some really nice vector graphics that give the illusion of depth.

Starts easy to let you get a feel of the jumping, then progressively gets harder !

If anyone's interested in more games by me, then theirs another one here that I created a few months ago: (takes while to load the game though)

The Intro is nice! I was not sure what was the sun and what was the moon. A Jumping Sound would have been nice :)
Great work!

I loved those backgrounds! But the gameplay needed some more work.

I played through it. The game needs more variety. A long time in the game, there is no challenge at all. There is so much ground between two gaps, that you often just can hold down space as long as you want. So you could make more gaps an increase the speed with the time!

Neat, cogratulations on submitting a game. It starts of rather slow but actually gets kind of difficult towards the end. I slipped on my first try and beat it on the second. It could use a bit more diversity, I think.

Very repetitive, unfortunately.

Really great graphics! I liked the drumbeat too, though a couple of jump sounds effect would have been nice. However, this game could do with some checkpoints! At first I only got about halfway through the day, then on my second attempt I got through all of the day and about 95% of the night when I accidentally double-jumped in mid air somehow and botched the landing - I wanted to see the story resolve, but I really didn't want to do all those jumps again from the very beginning! Overall though, great job :)

Great work, definitely need to add more elements to the level though. Love the art style!

Nice game, controls feel nice and it looks really good, its just a bit repetitive, but nice work!

Nice art. Everything is good just maybe the jump can be a bit too high. :)

Nice day night cycle!

I liked the artwork; I think you should work on the characters to resemble the original south park / felt style so they match the background more.

Little bit repetitive, although the jump mechanism seems ok. :-)

Doesn't run for me on OS X Mavericks, seems like a version conflict: Exception in thread "main" java.lang.UnsupportedClassVersionError: core/Main : Unsupported major.minor version 51.0

Music is pretty cool, and so is the game. Cool thing jumps look like you are on the moon.

Sorry, my antivirus software said that OpenAL32.dll contains Trojan:Win32/Repplock. Could you run a virus scanner and reupload it?

I liked the game but I had huge problems with lag that almost made the game unplayable.

The implementation of the theme, one day-never thought I'd see that in a runner. The day-night cycles, the art style and the music's cool. The jumping felt a bit strange, though. And this really needed some checkpoints, I got so close but failed :S

Nice artworks !

Very nice graphics, the game is kind of repetitive but rather well done (day-night cycle is nice!). It was also too easy in the beginning and too hard in the end. It would be better with a more responsive jumping mechanic. Good job though!

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.
