Crate Collecter

by jthistle - Compo Entry

Use the arrow keys to move. Collect the crates; avoid the anvils and bombs. Power crates may help you or harm you. Collect as many crates as possible before death. Enjoy!

This is my second Ludum Dare (my first being 30), and my first LD with Unity.

This game does not work on computers with a graphics card with a DirectX version lower than DirectX 11 (this includes most Windows XP and below computers).

I like the music going faster at higher levels!

The game is maybe a bit to slow, but it become fun when the bonus falls, and I like the music when it's speedier.

Love it! Just needs an animation when the box hits the floor/podium apart from that it's the best game I have played.

Interesting... Hope you keep up the good work!

Gameplay is a bit slow, but the bonus boxes shake that up a bit. More bonuses would be cool!

Cool game, music is nice! Controls are simple but the movement in the game is a little slow to reach crates from the other side of the map

Very simple and compact game! I wish there was some kind of movement boost/energy system to have a chance to catch the crates on the other side of the screen. The bonus crates do add more to the experience, especially the gift of anvils, which was really funny! Congrats on making your first game with Unity! Well done!

Smooth gameplay. I particularly liked the powerupdowns -- you never know what you're gonna get!

I love the crazy crate bonus. The game is simple but Crazy Crates gave me something to look forward to.

Scored 65, I found the game fun and funny with some power ups especially the "crazy crates" and the "gift of anvils".
Good game.

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.
