by MrShortee - 48 Hour Compo Entry

A simple autorunner with a musical touch.
Collect coins and avoid stalactites/stalagmites.
(Sound is highly recommended!)

My first game with Construct2. Done in about 20h.
(And by 'first' I mean: I installed it wednesday evening :D )

sometimes objects get spawned out of rythm :/

Stiff controls. Enjoyed the fast pacing. Challenging game.

Also could you provide your .capx file? That would be great.

Lovely aesthetic, good sound. Double-jump useful!

Nice graphics and audio, but there isn't much to differentiate it from other infinite runners in terms of mechanics.

I love the art. The sounds are great, too! Not sure if it's just me, but jumping feels buggy in Chrome. Idk.

I like the looks and style of this very much. Nice game, only, as other noted already, not much new gameplay, but the game was still fun!

The aesthetic of the game is nice, but i died several time without understanding why: I was not noticing the rocks

A bit hard at first but very enjoyable :D

Loading bar went upto about 95% but stopped loading. I'm using the latest chrome.

Nice Bit.Trip Runner style audio and pleasing graphics

Apr 28, 2014 @ 11:50am

The musical coins are interesting, and the art is pretty nice, but I found the low visibility of the rocks highly frustrating.

Solid overall. Lovely graphics, my gf commented on this as she walked past. WHY AM I DYING. ahh.. the rocks (After i read the comments to find out why) As a major gameplay element they need to stand out more like the coins & lantern things. Smooth game.

I really like the graphics. The white mushrooms confused me a bit though, I thought I had to jump over them at first.

Loved the feeling of depth with the background, cool audio and graphics

Pretty good. The controls were difficult, but the rest of the game was good. Nice job :)

Not the most original game mechanics ever (It's the most difficult part, imo). Really dig the audio, though!

This game will put you into a trance. I really really liked it (and I don't like runners) The graphics are beautiful under ground-y, quite inspiring actually.

the double jump led to a weird glide mechanic i think.

I only played until my high score of 14 then had to attend a meeting for addicts XD Good stuff!

Very nice runner. Would agree on making the obstacles a little more apparent. Well done tho :)

Great job for your first Construct2 game. The musical coins was an interesting idea and the aesthetics really drew me in.

Fabulous! I really enjoyed that a lot! The controls were super solid - the double jump was a happy surprise

The randomness seemed to jumpy to me. Neat idea, could use a bit more work if you decide to do more with it.

Nice little game, a bit hard.

Gave it a few tries, 110 was my final score. Pretty good, but too slow. There were sometimes long strips of land with only mushrooms on them. Some of the coins were also placed so that they were cruelly hard to pick up. The beat also starts getting interesting too late. Still managed to get maybe 1 or 2 good tunes out of it. Jumping didn't feel too good, you should add some inertia to the player character. Juicing the game up ( would've made it feel a lot better.

Good job on your first Construct2 game.

I read the description, but I'm a man with short memory - when the game started and a lot of mushrooms came, I thought I had to jump over them, haha. I was very confused that they made a sound (that I believed to be "crashing") even when I clearly jumped over them - and then I suddenly died without any mushroom in sight! Once I finally concentrated on the stalactites/stalagmites, everything got a lot easier. Good job on combining visual and audio elements!

finished with 60points fun game!

Cool idea. I suppose it's highly inspired by Bit trip Runner but it kinda felt really different while playing it. As the others said, the feedbacks on the rocks/obstacles might be a bit poor but anyway, cool entry :D

May 10, 2014 @ 8:09am

Nice job for 20 hrs. I ended up with about 50 pts. Nice visuals and mood. Would work on some more and polish as much as possible.

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.

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.
