Monster Jumper

by Itay2805 - Compo Entry

This is the game i made! In this game you have to jump and finish the levels! This can sometimes be hard because the monster you are playing with has some strange powers!

This game is very basic and don't have alot of levels, but i hope you would like it! By the way, This is my fist compo and it was very fun :)

One more thing to note, All the levels were randomly generated (The generator got broken after level number 10).

After some testing the game does not work on MAC OS/X :(

If there are any bugs feel free to tell me so i could fix them :)

gfF is where I gave up. That Down/Enter/Ctrl+V/Enter combo! A good simple game for your first compo keep it up on the upcoming ones! Here are some things you can improve in this game:

-Dont make people do that combo B). A level can load itself when you die i think.
-i think you can fix the problem about teleporting player when its flipping. You are using character sprite orgined from sides probably so when you flip it character moves 1 units. When its turning you just hange its position 1 units to other direction.

I hope it helps!

I think I didn't quite understand it. You could totally just jump and press left all the time and get to the goal without problems.
The jumping was really bugged some times.
Overall its a really challenging and diverse game!

The game is not very innovative but it's a good start. Hope you will continue to work on it in the future.

I found 2 bugs:
- you can just use the arrow keys without jumping in a lot of levels.
- in level "GhB" (funny cheat code :p), if you press left arrow key, the character enter the border and cannot move anymore.

The first level is...i don't know the word, sorry.
By tiping the cheat code Unu, the level becomes playable, but it's very difficult to play with such high speed.
With more time of working you could make the game better, so keep on!!

This game didn't seem to be working properly when I ran it. At first, I hit the spikes and for some reason it said "you won", which was kind of confusing. The second time I played it, somehow I got stuck in the wall to the right. The third time it worked for a little bit and then my controls just quit working.

Since I couldn't get it to work, I didn't rate it. Sorry if I'm missing anything. Maybe I didn't understand how to paly.

Congratulations on your first compo! There were a few things such as collision boxes that were askew and a little annoying when I had to type in cheat codes to get into levels. But still it was very challenging.

Hey everyone! First of all thank you for telling me the bugs! On mac it doesn't work and i don't know why, I will update the github page so it will tell it doesn't work on mac. Peecestudios, It should not start on GhB, GhB is a bugged level which should not be in the game, I will try to see why it starts on it very soon and try to fix it, In this level if you go right the game crashes, and it is hard to finish the level. Has said this is the first time making a "real" game, After ludum dare ends i will fix all the bugs and make the game more balanced! Thank you for playing! -Itay Almog

Woah, that movement speed :O Most levels are doable by simply jumping to the left, but overall a nice compo entry :)

Mini Submission FAQ

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.

CAN I ENTER BOTH EVENTS?: You should pick 1 event, whichever you think it’ll do better in. If the idea is strong, and everything plays well enough, you can go Compo. If you’re a perfectionist, and would prefer people to play a more polished game, do the Jam. Historically, more games are entered in the Compo, but with more people and more time, Jam games have the potential to be better (that doesn’t mean they are). Many solo participants do enter the Jam.

If you made 2 games, unfortunately, the website doesn’t support multiple submissions per user. To submit your 2nd game, you will have to make a 2nd account. Only do this if you made 2 games. Alternatively, if one game is better than the other, then consider just entering the better game.

CAN I KEEP WORKING UNTIL THE DEADLINE?: Yes! Immediately after the 48 or 72 hours, we do something called Submission Hour. As the name suggests, it’s an extra hour for you to package, upload, and submit your games. If there were catastrophic issues trying submitting your game, or you misunderstood how submissions work, that’s okay. It happens. We’re flexible. If you need advice, check with the folks on IRC. If you need an admin, get in touch.

CAN I KEEP WORKING ON MY GAME?: Oh definitely! You should! But for the sake of judging, keep the Compo or Jam version around. You can include a link to the Post-Compo/Post-Jam version of your game on your games page, but sure your main links are the original version.

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 at least 20 games to improve your visibility (Coolness).

MY GAME CRASHES, IS UNBEATABLE, OR I MADE A TYPO: We allow you to fix crashes, win condition, or tiny bugs after the deadline. In a sense, this is like “porting” to support more players. We leave this open to interpretation, but generally speaking your game should be identical to the game you submitted. No new features, just fixing mistakes you should have caught had you been better rested.

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.

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.
