Convey

by FelixNemis - Jam Entry

Conveyor:
by FelixNemis (Charles Burnham) and Megan Yoon

Avoid spikes, jump on creatures and boxes to avoid being pushed off the conveyor belt.
Also collect some coins.

Use Chrome for best performance (Firefox will also work)
Also it seems to run better on it's own page than in the embedded version :/

M: toggle mute/music mute
Left/Right: move left/right
Space: jump
R: restart

My Fourth LD game this time with Megan Yoon (her first)
Made with Phaser (Javascript/HTML5)
Music and pencil drawings by Megan.
Coloring and pixel art by me.
Coding by both of us.

Fun game :) I love that you used HTML5 as well. It was a bit hard for me in the beginning. (How can I jump that high?!)

I like the hand drawn look and the music was nice. Some of the jumps were pretty rough, like if you killed the guy you were suppose to springboard off you couldn't make the jump. Or if you missed a platform you couldn't try again. Fun game, I enjoyed it. Good job :)

Great game. Good graphics and audio. Good concept. Everything fits together

I never made it past the jump where you were supposed to bounce off the enemy, because I kept killing him and not making the jump...
Graphics are nice...

It looks and sound great. Great use of the theme. The game seemed to be in slow motion. Not sure if that was the intention of if my computer was just struggling to run it.Are the jumps supposed to be incredibly slow?

I noticed those white things with the face moves on the conveyor belt and a quicker pace than everything else.

Fun idea. I struggled because it felt very sluggish as if something in the code was slowing everything down and couldn't jump high enough.

The game is very slow for me, I think it's not intended. The music is great!

Well, the game character is likely destined to the death.

A bit too hard but looks nice
A little more animations could do a lot better

Nice game ! Art and music are good, I think the level design is especially well done, I just wisth the game was a bit longer :)

Jumping needs some adjustment (the jump height is too small) and the music is a bit too loud but I liked the concept and it fits the theme.

Cool idea! Music is the best part I think. That is a Nice low baseline! With some winter storm :D Some tweaking of the meachanics would help (I think jump speed should be higher and the drag lower) +1 for using Phaser!

Good concept with decent graphics - same issue as others with last couple of jumps - some form of recovery or boost would be good for when you are on the far right and can't make a jump - you just sit and watch your dude fall off the earth!

Cool - crazy hard to get over first tall obstacle tho!

Great job on using HTML5 :)

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.
