Mining Under The Surface

by Jamcount - 48 Hour Compo Entry

I didn't really finish the game because i did it too relaxed. But i got a kind of playable result, i have used alot of time playing it myself. The game is my first game in Unity's 2D Engine, i heard Ludum Dare's are good to try something new, that's maybe one of the reasons there's so many bugs. Hope you like it.

Collapsing rock was a good mechanic - I liked that you could drop them on enemies. Took me a long time to die, is there an end?

ryebread761: It isn't endless it have 3 levels but it takes some time to get to the boss at each level.

cageinabird: Yes there's an end just takes some time to get there.

It's not a bad game, but concept seems to me poor. With more time you may do a better game starting with it. Well done ++

The graphics were alright but it seemed like everything went way too fast.

Nice little game. Collision detection is a bit buggy.

Geckoo1337: Yeah, i wanted some more time, but most of the sunday i was at an airsoft battle...
MunkeeBacon: I think the pixel art worked out pretty good. i am not used to making 2D games and sprites.
TeamFlare: Thanks
Danvil: I didn't notice that.

Nice game ! The pixel art is perfect, the tools switching mechanics is a great idea! The challenge is real, not too easy, not too hard, it's perfect ! I read your comments saying you are not used making 2d games and sprites, you did a great job. Thank you !

Interesting concept and I enjoyed the physics. Obviously not finished and could need a better combat system, but could be cool if it could become more than one corridor.

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.
