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

Marauder

by Pixelaborate - Compo Entry

A score attack around the idea of surviving an onslaught not dissimilar to what a tomb raider may have to endure. You may never make it out alive, but at least try to take as much gold with you as possible!

M - Mute
F - Fullscreen
Shift - Run

You can jump, double jump, and slide down walls. You will need to master all of these techniques to survive as long as you can! If you get hit by falling rocks or exploding bombs you will turn red, get knocked back, and be unable to grab and jump off of walls for a short period of time.

P.S. My PB while testing was 510. Can you beat it? :)

Good job. Nice graphics and very hectic gameplay. Enjoyed playing this but failed miserably at getting a decent score :)

Got 370! Digging the animations, they're pretty sweet.

Great game! Controls looks a bit laggy but it's not a big problem. I like explosions and falling blocks.

i would say the gold needs to stand out more, because at first i thought they were just broken bits of rock, so i didn't realize i needed to collect them, i thought i was just avoiding boulders. its a good looking game, sound effects would definitely help with the incoming boulders

This was really cool, I like the concept. But I think you should make it harder.

i like your idea very much :)
i have two suggestions: some sound effects would add value to the mood of the game and make the gold stand out more, its color is too similar to the ground :b
i like the concept very much and i think this is a very fun game! great job :DD

210 but admittedly I jumped down the hole intentionally. I just kept wondering what's down there. XD Great work.

Fun game! Got a 535!
The only gripe I have with it is when you move horizontally off a wall you jump. It annoying when you're fall between 2 blocks to get gold and you just keep jumping away from it.
Otherwise great game, had a lot of fun.

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.
