by bombjack - Jam Entry

Inspired by game like Dig Dug, Boulder Dash or Digger, Reggid let you mine and collect coins and gems.

I expected to add more stuff like treasure chest, bombs and lava but unfortunately I ran out of time.

I hope you'll have some fun with it.

Use arrows to move, jump and dig.
'R' to restart game.

Pretty fun, but I think the death detection is a bit glitchy. Also when you go right by using the D key you just die for no reason (and the death sound scared the heck out of me), but if you use the arrow keys it's fine. And why are diamonds only 10$? :P

oops, I forgot to remove the test 'D' key to kill the player :) I fixed it! Thanks.

Nice little digging game! And yes, I saw it too that death detection is a bit glichty, just make sure to really run away from falling block. Nothing serious though. I really liked that 'scream' when player died, really funny :)

Fun game - plays really well. Yeah, needs something else (like enemies) to really complete it, but you've done a great job so far. Death sequence will haunt my dreams :| !!

Gameplay is solid. Perhaps the hitbox of the player is a bit too big at times. (I died unfairly once! x) ). Like the graphical style

The sound when dieing is great! Nice entry.

Simple but sweet. I really liked that you could see the depths below as you feel to your death! A bit of music could do all the difference for this game.

OMG, this dying scream could be the new Wilhelm scream no doubt!
Nice little entry, simple but efficient!

Nice, simplistic game! I don't know but for once the lack of music I felt was actually pleasant.

I'm not quite sure why you fall 1000ft when you die, but the visuals match the sound well, so, who cares? XD

I feel the falling block death is a bit harsh when on the furthest to the edge columns, you can't really avoid it. D:

As you said you intended to add lava etc, that'd help make the game feel more complete. Perhaps items like bombs or drills that move on their own?

Overall a fun little gem-hunt of a game, keep it coming! :)

Very reminiscent of Boulder Dash.
The controls could be tighter if you snapped the character to the grid, but it's quite a solid base if you want to expand the game further!

Apr 29, 2014 @ 6:29pm

aaaaaah , that sound when you die!

nicely done

Damn falling rocks! good game though I felt the down arrow mining was sometimes unresponsive.

Good game- As a kid I was a fan of Boulder Dash, so a little nostalgia in here :-) The movement and death detection was a bit weird, but all in all the game felt good, and I liked the sounds :-)

Apr 29, 2014 @ 7:05pm

LOL Dat death sound, I enjoyed playing this game. Good job, most of my points goto humor because of that death scream and graphics :D

Fun game! The controls act strange if you use the wasd keys instead of the arrow keys. Great art! Simple premise but I like it.

that death sound is the best

Simple, but well put-together! Nice art. The digging sound effect in my headphones hurt my ears though.

I just fixed the hit box. It feels better now.

Game looks good and the digging mechanic is implemented well. Would have been nice to have had some variation on that dig sound, especially if you have to hear it 1000 times.

Game became less challenging when I realised I could dash under blocks without being hurt. Death animation was well done, I like the way he falls to the bottom of the map.

Fun and quite additive! Well done!

The sound effects get kinda repetitive, but maybe only because there are so few. Except the death sound, which is of course really great. Otherwise nice little game, although maybe a bit easy.

Another good entry reminding me of the Suppaplex game I used to play when little! This one is well done, nice palette and I loved the death animation! :D

I didn't wanna die so I don't hear that scream:) fun game.

Makes a change from games with bfxr sounds. :)

It's pretty easy, but fun nonetheless.

That's a good old school game.
I have reached the bottom and see... nothing :(

Good start, I will come back after you add lava, chest, enemies, explosions :)

Nice, I had fun! The death sound, and all other sounds, were pretty nice. It would be nice to make the controls on mobile clearer. A few times I pressed down when I meant to press left or right.
Thanks for the game!

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.
