Stage 1-1

by flatgub - Compo Entry

Its not as complete as i'd like, but I've got no time left...
Stage 1-1 is a game where you're bored while you ride the train, so you decide to play on your phone to pass the time.
Its a platformer with procedural level & enemy generation and the goal is to get to a christmas tree!

Hard Mode extends the bounds of the RNG based level generator, so you can get levels up to 30 segments long, and an enemy spawn rates of up to 80%

My challenge to you it is to complete a single run on Hard Mode

A lot of good points but this wall friction drives me crazy.

+1 for looking at it a different way. I wonder of someone did something with a screen door?

Beautiful game ! Seriously, the art is amazing (especially the hand and phone). Also very nice idea. I'm not too found of the controls so I didn't get very far, but great job anyway.

Game play was alright, moving was a little clunky. I liked the seed thing, however I did get impossible levels a few times.

Good one. It would be better if player can instant respawn.

excellent entry, the procedural generated levels, together with the graphics and music make this stand out, very amazing for a compo entry

Haha, man I am SO BAD at this game!!! But it's still very well made! And the whole shaky thing is neat, haha. Would have been hilarious if the train sometimes jerks, and the phone tilts a little, causing your character to lose footing, hehe. Anyway, congrats! =)

Very good use of the "all on one screen" theme, very fun gameplay.

As a post-LD project, you should release some sort of actual version of the game on the virtual phone for real phones, so you can re-enact the game. :P

Very nice!

I really like the train sound in the background to make it feel like you're playing a game on an actual phone. The procedural generation is pretty neat and I really like the animation on the snowman. It was a bit hard to control the snowman mid-air though, which ended up with me falling off the platforms more often than I think I should have. Good job!

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.
