Yeah I like that game, although you can hack yourself through the spikes. Just move through them without jumping... The effect on entering a level could be a little faster though. Nevertheless I really love platformers and you did a good job!

Great entry, controls are tight and it plays smoothly.

I like it, it's really good. You can put a checkpointer later, if you're update it.

Ehhh... I didn't enjoy it. The jump is too fast and not always responsive, horizontal movement is slippery and imprecise, touching a wall keeps you from going upward which is the difference between life and death while submerged, the slow camera zoom-out effect just obscures your view so you can't see what's coming right in front of you, and the checkpoints are unforgiving. I got to the screen with the spike-box blocking an air pocket in the middle of a long passageway a few times and was too annoyed to keep playing. Died 108 times and none of those times felt like my fault.

I was kinda missing an overall goal or directive apart from just moving thorugh the levels. Also, swimming was a pain in the ass because you have to keep pressing up really fast or you sink back down.
Apart from that, it's really nice.

This game is quite challenging, but I did beat it twice, second time only like 30 deaths.

BTW if you have not yet picked out a name for the main character I recommend "Slipshoes McSwimsbad" :P

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.
