Teleporter Escape!by kyru - 48 Hour Compo Entry
Teleporter Escape! is a simple game where you are a robot running around on an alien world killing monsters to get the pieces of your teleporter back. Once you collect 5 pieces you can travel to the next world to do it all over again. After 4 worlds you will win and make it back home.
The game controls using the Arrow Keys to move and the X key to wait in place. Monsters only move when you press a key, either moving or waiting. To attack a monster you have to be next to it and move into the monster. A new monster will appear every 8 moves and deadlier monsters appear as you collect more teleporter pieces.
Since it's Java based I'm distributing it in a runnable JAR file. In theory it should work cross-platform, but I only tested on Windows, let me know if there are any issues on other systems. The Source is a zip of the LibGDX generated Eclipse projects.
I used Java, LibGDX, Paint.NET, sfxr, and autotracker to make the game.
The game is very hard right now, if I do any more with the game one of the first priorities would be to tweak the difficulty.

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.
