Coin Diverby VDZ - 48 Hour Compo Entry
(Updated on May 2nd, 2014; for judging, please use the original version (first three links). The update fixes the collision issues, significantly improving gameplay.)
In Coin Diver, you dive into the sea to collect coins.
Press left and right to rotate, and Z or space to swim.
As you spend time underwater, you will run out of air.
Find an air pocket to refill your air before you drown!
Furthermore, your temperature will drop slowly; if it reaches
0%, you will die of hypothermia. Try to surface before this happens.
If you return to the surface alive, your score is doubled.
Collect multiple coins before refilling your air for bonus points.
This game is Windows-only.
Left/Right/A/D - Rotate your character
Z/Space/W/Up - Swim
R - Restart
F or Alt-Enter - Toggle fullscreen mode
Escape - Quit the game
The high score list can also be viewed inside a browser:
- Play the game with sound enabled. The music will let you know when you're about to drown.
- Pay attention to the background color and the music; you'll be able to tell how deep you are.
- Don't just mash the swim button. Using the button more conservatively allows you to steer more precisely.

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.
