Pipe Questby HotBoxGames - Jam Entry
Join Jez on a quest to retrieve his stolen pipe in this precision platformer.
During his pursuit of the stolen pipe, Jez uses his amazing fire punching skills in an attempt to stop the pipe thief in his tracks - but accidentally blasts through a computer monitor and is forced to make his way through the deadly video game world that awaits.
What on earth was Jez smoking in that pipe?
- 10 challenging levels
- Avoid deadly spike traps to stay alive!
- Use fire punch to blast through wooden blocks in your way!
- Collect keys to unlock doors blocking your path.
- Wall jump to help you reach high ledges & other areas.
- Combine jump, double jump & fire punch for max jump distance.
- Personal highscore tracker (time, attempts, global rank).
- Online leaderboards (top 10 best times/attempts per level).
- Storyboard intro and ending! (if only we had time to animate)
- Original ~5 minute soundtrack
This was our first attempt at creating a platformer style 2D game.
Our aim for this Ludum Dare was to submit a complete game, with an intro, multiple levels & an ending.
We originally wanted 12 levels in total, but due to time restrictions had to limit this to 10.
Partial controller support is added for in-game - however keyboard is recommended for best experience.

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.
