Towel Run

by arttut02 - 48 Hour Compo Entry

Towel Run is platformer with some puzzle elements (kind of). Had so much trouble with this. It lacks quite a lot of everything, but maybe you get the idea what I was trying to do. Made the level 3 little harder, so there is something to play for you.

Didn't have time to put controls to game, so I put those here.

left = left arrow, left stick
right = right arrow, left stick
jump = space, A
change character = up arrow, B
restart room = R, right bumber

EDIT: Made couple bug fixes.
- No falling when going outside the screen.
- Switching players mid air does not effect the after landing events.. (Not going to tell you what this means ;))..

Wow awesome game. First thing i found out was you could run left as the man and fall into the ladies world and play together, not sure if intentional but nice a touch.

I'm not entirely sure you can jump over the water either, i tried for like 20 mins xD though maybe i just suck.

It is actually quite fun!
The third level took me quite a few tries...

Well done

SaxonRah. You should be able to jump over the waters. I played the game through once ;)...

Interesting game. Hmm, never really understood how to get the trees and other obstacles to move, the uncontrolled character didn't seem to have any trouble to throw them up.

This was a decently-humourous game (indecently?). I'm not sure why the trees bounce, but I like it. A good effort in Game Maker.

Great mechanics! The third level was pretty tough and took me a bunch of tries. Very funny concept too, well done!

The third level was really hard for me. But the game made a lot of fun. Thank you for your entry.

That was a lot of fun, and super hard! I like that there are multiple ways to solve the puzzles. Great sense of humor. The deaths are hilarious - I love how you can accidentally squash your counterpart with a tree. Fantastic.

Great work!

This was a cute entry and a decently hard reflex puzzle as well. It was a bit short but satisfying. Thanks for your entry. :)

Pretty random, but fun. I'm still not totally sure what the towels are about but you've done well for 48 hours.

Game has an interesting concept and can get quite challenging. You need to figure out some sort of strategy while playing. I agree it would be nice if there was some music to go along with the game play.

Nice idea and fun to play. It was a little hard to see the bottom player against that background.

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.
