Ludum Dare 31 — December 5th-8th, 2014 — Theme: Entire Game on One Screen

by Esjaji - Jam Entry

Here it is, the first time I've actually finished a game for Ludum Dare! It's not nearly as complete as I'd like it to be; I spent too much time stumbling over simple problems, and working on all the assets, and I wasn't nearly as focused as I'd have like to have been.

I would have liked to add some more collectibles and moving obstacles, as the game seems a little easy at the moment. With more time, I'd have added a little more polish, and I would've liked to have a go at making my own music. Instead, I've resorted to good ol' Kevin Macleod!

The game does have a scoring system, but no actual scoreboards, so perhaps there's something to think about implementing in the future.

Still, I got to be a dork and make a game literally based entirely on one screen (providing it doesn't glitch out!) and I'm just happy to have actually submitted something at all this time!

Fun game, you would think more of these type of games would show up in other games, like you enter a bar, and a little one screen game is there. You did allot with a little, in a short period of time. It was tough and fun.

Cute game, but it took some time for me to realize, that you can make doublejumps :D

Love how the character inadvertently rolls! Was that by mistake or design? Haha!

I like it. :) But it took me a while to figure out that I could double jump :P

Awesome theme implementation. I like how you did the double jump mechanic. Getting it at the peak isn't something I'm used to with double jump. The hero does seem unusually sticky.

IT's a cool idea and looks pretty awesome. I found it seems pretty random where the next platform comes out and so sometimes it isn't possible to move before you die. that's a bit of a bummer.

good idea, but there are many situations where there is no way to jump on a platform

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 (http://mysite.com/mygame.zip) 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.
