Super Javali Racer Deluxe

by DrZanuff - Jam Entry

Edit 01/09/2016 - Added Itch.IO Link

Welcome to the Javali Racer world!

Ok, the jam entry is just a level. Tomorrow i will post the Post-Compo. Javali is portuguese for Boar. The word Javali comes from the arabic word, djabali. You are a lord in a world where kings and knights ride in Javalis, instead of horses, and the Javalis are sacred animals. You must race to score the fastest time.

We just had time to finish one level. We have the art ready for more tracks, sound and other stuff. Tomorrow i will try to finish the post-compo version and put a link here. The final version will have the tournament mode where you will be able to upgrade your Javali. Maybe we'll make more levels and new things along the month.

-- Change --
Ok, sorry about the controls. I switched the controls for an easier version. I've been busy with the post compo version, so i will just set the easy controls back again.

-- Bug Fixes --
-Fixed the player's results showing zero
-Reduced the music volume
-Reduced the number of laps


Z - Press the 'Z' button quickly to make the Javali run. Watch out though, because if you run out of stamina the Javali will stop and you'll have to wait.

Arrows - Move the Javali, up, down, left and right.

X- Jump.

C - Dash, with the Dash you can break those crates. If you collide with a crate without dashing, the Javali will suffer damage.

Space - Brake.

The stamina bar will recover with time. If you run out of hearts, you lose. There are some obstacles on the track that you must jump, otherwise it will slow you down.

That's it. I'm proud of the final result, because the team worked very hard. Of course it's not the desired result we wanted, but we will make it happen. Later i will write a Post-mortem.

Thank you Ludum Dare, one more game made!

Looks fun but the controls are really not practical :/

Fun idea, but the gameplay needs some work! Stamina drains way too quickly to actually get around the track - I discovered it was much faster to just keep hammering 'boost'.

The controls are a nightmare! The Javali goes where he wants! haha

Thank you all for the comments. With the feedback i made a simplified version of the controls. I know it's strange, the Stamina is too low, the speed is poor. It's because during the Jam the game was developed with upgrades in mind. The jam ended and we couldn't implement the tournament mode and the Upgrade screen in time. I am working in the post compo and i hope you check it out when its ready.

Haha the intro ^^ I would make the speed higher and the stamina too. But then (with opponents) it could be a fun racer :)

Nice foundation you've got here! I'm sure the game would be great with more stuff in it - upgrades, ai opponents, local multiplayer and epic poignant story. :D

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. Alternatively, if you just posted it, wait a minute. The cache may not have refreshed yet.

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.
