I suggest you move the game to another hosting, as it is a pain in the butt to find the download link for someone that's not french :P

Plop, sorry... The problem is fixed, normally you have a direct link to download the game ;)

I really liked the game, challenging platformers are always welcome. But if I were you I would hide the timer, you had some pretty funny text but the timer was making me nervous and I just tried to complete everything really fast, not really paying attention to the rest.

Playing a bald slightly overweight man running around in a cave - how else could it not be good? It's great, I'm loving this :D And his comments are really well thought through. Very nice job ;)

The pixel art was well done and the game played decently. Fits the theme pretty well.

Wow I made it to the outside with 22 deaths... Nice die n' retry platformer with good graphics, the collision box was maybe to big, sometimes it felt unfair. Great job !

Fun! And there texts are good, just some (death messages ;) ) repeating. But (especially at the beginning) the player is running too fast to read all of them.

Well done with this little platformer.

The platforming was pretty standard, but the controls felt pretty tight, which is good. I wish the texts would stay a little longer, as I wasn't always able to read everything. The music was... strange... maybe a bit variaton could help.

I liked it a lot, good humor. One thing was that I played it twice and the second time I didn't die at all and my score was like 278k, and I feel like my score was higher the first time when I died 13 times. Maybe I'm wrong about that though...

Thanks for all of your comments, really positive and helpful. Joe40001 : The score change with a number of deaths, but not radicaly because I think that it's the time the most important. That's why your score haven't change radicaly ;)

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.
