Really neat little game. I especially like the magma flowing.
Reminds me of Supaplex.

The main character (the truck)is lovely! Simple but good design!

I'm also reminded of Supaplex.

Simple style, yet good looking.

Very solid game and nice graphics. Expand on the gameplay a bit and this could be really fun!

Interesting, could use more of a penalty for going next to lava/monsters though.

Love the look.

Very tight controls and solid gameplay. Neat bouncy feel to the graphics and UI. Overall great work. I know you're supposed to avoid the magma but it's too much fun to drown the monsters in molten rock.

You commented about the animation of my game character not bending his knees. Those are just left/right keyframes I would defintely have his knee bending between those two frames. Just to be clear!

Fun fonts and tasteful graphics.

P.s. thanks for the game mechanics website, helped make my game (then I went and added some bugs on top).

Plays very nicely. Had a bit of an issue where pressing the down arrow scrolled the page, so the game kept disappearing out of sight

Apr 29, 2014 @ 3:22pm

really fun, looks good and simplistic :)

Very smooth game! Nice mechanics, simple and addictive gameplay :) Where are the sounds? :(

This is super crisp... definitely a fresh spin on the "digging" ideas I'm seeing (my own game included :))

Love the art style, love the way the difficulty/failure works. Lava flows interestingly to make it fun.

259! Really cute game with solid mechanics. It would be nice to have a little more variety in obstacles.

Really good fun to play. I like that you immediately get what to do, then there's the nice touches like the monsters and lava chasing after you.

Nice! Reminds me that flash game where you have to dig into the hell.. I've expected more games like this when I was reading the theme :-)

Really cool game - I like the steady increase of the difficulty level the deeper you are.

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.
