CoinCollector

by maxhaesslein - Compo Entry

Collect coins. It's as simple as that.


Works best in Chrome, Safari is OK. Firefox has some problems, I'm sorry for that.
Didn't even bother to test in IE.


I wanted to have some more features, with overlapping colored windows and locked doors and stuff, but this took too long to implement so I stripped it down to submit at least a small game.

Nevertheless, I learned a lot and it was much fun!

Cool idea! Maybe a tutorial would be good or a description because it was hard in the beginning to understand how the window system works. Collision seems a bit strange some places(I don't mean the places where you can walk out). Overall a good game.

It would be great if the character could move a bit faster.

I like your touch how to follow the theme with the "window"! Felt a bit sad when you got stuck as you can't move outside your own window resolution. A great innovative game that follows LD31's theme extremely well! Thanks for the game and Merry Christmas!

Awesome work on the randomly generated mazes. Looks really hard to implement. A simple game, but feels complete.

Nice idea, maybe a window more little can make a better challenge.

Hi there. Well it does do what it says on the tin... I collected some coins, then was bored. But good job creating something, and what is there is solid... I know that second-day-dropping-a-load-of-features feeling... Good job!

Really nice concept, needs a bit of expanding but a very original idea

Why does the player move so slowly? Might have been fun otherwise.

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.
