Robot World Hopper

by Beege - Jam Entry

Just a little physics game I put together over a spare few hours I've had over the weekend.

You play a robot and your objective is to get to the portal that leads to the next world.

The game contains three levels and can be beat in a few minutes, enjoy.

Nice game. There are other gravity games like this, but I like how yours is zoomed in so you can't see everything at once.

Was a little short but understandable considering the short dev time.

Gotta love a game about orbital mechanics! Orbital platforming where you get orbit by horizontal velocity rather than jumping (aka the correct way) is a great concept I'd definitely like to see more of!

I happened to notice that running in one direction and switching will launch the player character into the air, about as effectively as the rocket boots. Intentional?

I liked it, specially the music and mood of it. It reminded me a bit of Mario Galaxy. Nice job :)

@Clyde Hey thanks for the feedback. You're right that running in one direction and switching launches the character into the air, which contradicts the mechanics. This is something I'll fix if I develop the game further. :-)

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.

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.
