Astro-Tomb Raider

by dkkarate - 48 Hour Compo Entry

My LD 29 Compo entry. Sadly I could not complete it with the time I had but it is stable and has a score so it's pretty fun.

WASD to move; You have a jet pack so hold W
SPACE to fire
1 and 2 are to switch your weapons

The guy walking animation is a little jumpy and there isa glitch between the tiles that flashes from time to time. He don't die?
Nice entry.

I'm sorry that he can't die but I just couldn't finish it with time I had. Again, I apologize.

Game needs a little bit more going on, I'm not sure if it really matches the beneath the surface theme in it's current state.

The graphics are nice, but a adding a purpose to the game would be nice.

It's a nice game. I like how the jumping is kind of jetpack-like.

You might have been better off going with the digging-style game you did as practice before the compo started, though.

Thank you all for the feedback. I might release a post compo version with all the bells and whistles :)

You mentioned it was unfinished, but what you had so far was pretty cool. Obviously you need an objective/death state/etc to make this a complete game.

Did you remove the files from your dropbox, as I can't download neither linux nor windows nor source. Too bad, just thought:"Good guy, who provides beside the webplayer all platform-executables" Maybe you will add the files again!?

Hi, I would like to say your game remembered me of Atari games, and the great ones. Keep practicing, you are on the way, if you had a little more experience, you could make a very funny game. Try to fix the problems, or, script everything again. But don't give up!

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.
