Dr Blake Saves the Universe

by sikosis - Jam Entry

I had a blast making this game and wish I had more time to flesh it out -- alas, that's the nature of the jam. Enjoy.


Arrow keys to move, Space to Jump

PS. The Windows and OS X versions have gamepad support.

The player movement feels very floaty, a lot of the tiles seemed to not be touching the ground. The level layouts were okay though.

I liked the art and music. Would like to see some more obstacles in the player's path - enemies, environmental hazards (other than the laser pits), etc.

nice graphics and presentation. The intro had absolutely no commas,so I read it all out loud without taking a breath ,and almost died XD

Gameplay is neat, I just wish the jump wasn`t so floaty!

But overall it was a good game and I enjoyed playing it :)

I loved the presentation. I do wish the up arrow was also jump.

Gorgeous graphics... the game is, well, playable, but I think I played it in not much more time than it took to finish watching the intro text scroll. More punctuation there, maybe a few less sentences? I felt like you spent a lot of time telling us that what we were doing was really important, but then with no obstacles--I died exactly once while I was getting used to the floaty jump--we don't exactly feel like we've earned anything.

Hey, maybe flesh it out more? You really just need to work on your level design some and you'd have a decent platformer here. Good luck... and thanks for the game!

Pretty basic platforming but controlled great. I liked the art and music, although some sprites had strange perspective. You created a good mood. Great job.

Neat little game, punctuation would have made that opening scene much easier tor read. Simple but well done.

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.
