Diving Simulator 2015

by Phobos001 - 48 Hour Compo Entry

A simulation of diving.

Goal: Break the ice to get beneath the surface.

In my testing, the game may have issues with objects that have shader effects on them in Chrome, but this only happens to me AFAIK. Everything should work as intended!

To open the source, you will need Construct 2. It should open in Free Edition AFAIK. Enjoy seeing my awful code :P

Nicely done but I don't see how it relates to the theme...

Agreed, I don't see how it related to the theme. But It's different.... ..and I like it! The gameplay was nice :)

Doesn't relate to the theme much, but otherwise well done. Good stuff

Haha, that's amazing... I like the control scheme... always a surprise. Nice splat and scored 29million on second attempt

I found this hilarious! I laughed out loud when i splatted. I'm not great at it. But it's funny, quirky, original and has a nice simplistic and retro theme to it. Although it would be nice if it was more linked to the theme. I still love it though!

I never got beneath the surface, but the game has a nice concept. Good use of sound effects as-well, really adds to the experience.

I'd say it fits with the theme quite well, being that the goal is to get beneath the surface of the ice.

This is hilarious, and quite fun!

This little guy has a death wish I guess. I liked the presentation and humor of it. The first time I didn't mash the spacebar enough and just exploded. That amused me quite a bit. Anyway, nice job for the 12 hours you spent on it.

The first time, I exploded on the trampuline, and it was already fun!

I then found myself in the air and... then it got REALLY fun. :D

Great job!

Apr 30, 2014 @ 9:01pm

Not bad. It made me smile.

Very fun, but soooo hard. Is it supposed to be two a player game ?

May 1, 2014 @ 9:01pm

I'm seeing stars, Loads in the rating section :P

Great game, very funny. I couldn't break through the ice though, much to my disappointment. I came close but not quite there. I'm gonna blame it on being on a rubbish laptop track pad and sitting in a bad position. I refuse to believe it's because I suck. ;)

HAMBURGERS? I slammed my comet-speed corpse into the frozen tundra far too many times to count. I have lost. You have defeated me. THERE BETTER BE A YEARLY INSTALLMENT AND DLC!!!!

Cool game but it seems the sound are not synced.

May 2, 2014 @ 10:01pm

AWESOME. At first it sounded like the wizards dieing in Chaos and then I laughed out loud at my landing.

May 2, 2014 @ 11:17pm

I love the ridiculously epic dive. Surprisingly tricky game, my head can't get around pressing keys and clicking on the things at the same time, but its fun!

A wonderful piece o' work. The best part about simulation games is where they differ from reality.

May 6, 2014 @ 5:09am

Well this is marvellous :D

The gameplay is nice but the controls are very disappointment for me

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.
