Bounce to safety

by rabbeni - Compo Entry

Bounce to safety is inspired by the game I played as a child. I don't really remember much of it so here's what I remembered :D

Could you guys help me to find that game ?

You control two firemen and try to bounce people to the roof of hospital. (Because the reasons)

You control firemen with arrow keys.

How many people can you save?

This was my first ludum dare and I can't wait for the next one.

Really cool! Please make a mobile port with the accelerometer! It would be really cool to play this on the phone! ^^
Good job! :)

The physics seemed a bit fast... maybe if the bouncing had a random height and the speed was slower it'd be manageable.

Very nice. But too difficult for me :D

Very funny! I like how the people spin out of control and explode when they hit the ground :D

really hard but very fun to play!
somehow the weird physics contribute to make it funny, I like how the guys explode on the floor also!

Maybe they jump to fast, it's technically impossible to not sacrifice most of them

Nice game, challenging with so many people to rescue at the same time, and funny to play! :)

I think the game you're looking for is the "Fire" Game & Watch by Nintendo: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=RZvYzDMUUAo

The crappy physics makes this game more funny, between the people spinning out of control, bouncing off each other, or inexplicably going really fast to the right if they touch the burning building.

I too only managed to save one dude. But all for one, they say! I would suggest those firemen not to wear skates on their next mission. Very funny game :)

Woo, saved 1 person!

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.
