Bob the Slob

by anssipe - 48 Hour Compo Entry

Bob is a... Slob that lives in two worlds which are connected through portals.
Nothing makes Bob more happy than collecting space coins. However, the evil game designer hid those those coins around these worlds.

But the evil game designer didn't know that Bob has a secret ability:
He can collect blocks and also build new structures out of them.

- This game uses Cocos-JS and requires WebGL
- Tested only with latest chrome (osx)
- Too bad that I had time to make only 2 levels...
- I may add OSX/Windows versions Post compo if anyone is interested :)
- Android version also planned...

- But first need to fix a lot of spaghetti code made during last hours...

Cool, the concept of switching between the worlds with portals and building your way with blocks was interesting. It's bit too easy to get stuck though and building is little difficult, maybe include ability to grab blocks directly in front of Bob too?

Great idea! I could see it getting really challenging, especially in later levels. Well done!

Hi there. Interesting mechanics. like Bob character. Puzzles need a bit more thought to solve than at first sight.

Nice character, love the idea and levels work. After getting stuck few times, found myself longing for ability to lay blocks while jumping.

This a great idea. It's super challenging: maybe smoothing out the difficulty curve would be good to get people hooked. Solid entry!

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.
