Hmm... Can't seam to open this. It appears that the Web link is pointed at the dropbox page for the download, not the download itself.

Couldn't get the kong version of this working. Music playing, robot in middle of empty screen. I'll come back later and try again

I think I didn't get it all. Does the money can be used or is it just a score ? Is it normal that fuel get negative ? Why do I lost health, because of fuel negative ?
Anyway to earn fuel ?
I think there is a good start here, that you will be able to improve with a few more effort.

I recognize abundant music when I hear it ;)

Wow - I'm actually surprised at this because the graphics was so basic, but I love the fact the fuel runs out pretty quickly so you have to get a move on. Digging mechanics, money + upgrade system from the shop. Lots of potential already, good job :)

Hi. It felt a bit unnecessary to click multiple times to mine, using more resource or time is okay without the tired left finger IMO. Like the harpsichord music. Like the voids in the underworld!

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.
