Platform Peril

by Neuneker - Compo Entry

This was my first time participating in Ludum Dare, and the first time I have actually "finished" a game.

Platform Peril places you in the center of an arena with no way out. The platforms begin to fall after you step on them, and new platforms spawn only when you move to other platforms. The goal is to survive as long as possible while collecting coins and racking up points.

Was unable to play this due to my character failing to spawn, I think?

Neat little game, I liked the idea of spawning more platforms as you land, so that game unfolds differently each time. Player movement was a bit too slow. Good job though!

Good job on finishing a game.

The controls felt a bit sluggish, even though I don't personally like that as much as snappy controls it worked for this, since it wasn't that hard to get where you needed to.

Awesome concept and very clever way to incorporate the theme of the jam.

The only feedback I have concern the polishment of the game.

1) The fonts at the beggining are a little hard to read.

2) The placements of the score, lives and coins are kinda hidden (lower bottom left of the screen).

3) It would be awesome to have music and sound effects, specially considering the pace of the game.

That's about it. Congrats on an awesome job, mate.

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.
