The Screen Pass

by Tater_hater - Compo Entry

Welcome to the LD31 Infinite football runner

The Quarterback throws the screen and you're off!

Use Arrow Keys or WASD to dodge the defense

Try to beat my high score of 258

I used Unity, paint, gimp, and good ol' Microsoft Word (with lightshot)

Team based off of Mighty Moosen Youtube Channel:

Neat perspective. Had fun playing for a minute (I think I got to around 130 yds? what kind of football field is this!?) but it does get a little tedious. I think if the difficulty ramped up a little quicker I'd have played a bit longer. Well done!

Nice! I like the screen scrolling effect. Got to 100 yards, but sometimes it's hard to tell whether a defender will hit you or not.

A very interesting game! Not what I expected at all, and the style was pretty reminiscent to what the theme made me think of, game-wise. Good job!

Not being American I don't quite understand, but looks like a cool idea to a runner game, need to see all the graphics at a distance to qualify for 'WHOLE' game in one screen.. but close.

Went boring a bit to fast. The music was a bit to short.

139 yards! Not bad for a european, huh?

I think that with some more variation, e.g. different players, other movement patterns, and a way to tackle, the game would be fun for more than just a minute.

And, as madlee says, neat perspective. I'm a sucker for 2D characters in 3D space.

Cool and well done!
It is fun.

The mixture between 3D and 2D works here, except maybe for the title font, but that could be fixed :)

Excellent idea and well executed. Great Job

Good idea of perspective and pretty fun.

Cool camera angle, I stopped at 100 yards because I thought I might have won. Woulda been cool to hear a voice yelling at all those awesome plays I was making (jukes).

Fun Jersey number too.

Interesting use of the theme - I wouldn't have thought that an infinite runner would be possible ;)

There's a bit of a lack of variety though: once you've dodged a few defenders you've kind of seen the whole game :S

I used to play a "racing" game that had a similar sort of style on the TRS-80. Cool to see something like that fit into this theme. Nice sprite work, too.

Really cool and addictive, seems like a lot of flash games I see and you did it in only 48 hours! Maybe add some variety to the game?

The 69 on the jerseys made me laugh.

Hi there. Like the rolling world/ground approach. Got 61yds first try. Like the music and crowd sounds too. Game maybe needs a bit more challenge. Good job!

It fits really well with the theme congratulations :). Why all the enemies have 69 on their T-shirts XD?

Good effort. The game needs a little more variation to keep it interesting, though. It's also hard to judge the distance between the characters.

Music seemed like it should be sad music for when you get tackled, maybe something more triumphant for when you're actually running. I like the Moosen.

I must admit, it fits the theme.

This is about as good as Flappy Bird, if it were a football-themed FPS. :)

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.
