Dont get mashed

by lekiy - Compo Entry

Endless Runner/2D Platformer

Go as far as you can!

Movement = Left/Right Arrows
Z = Jump
Down = Transform

Enemies and some blocks can be smashed from above.

- Dev Stuff -
This my second Ludum Dare using game maker, and my third overall.
I really enjoy doing Ludum Dare for the chance to keep learning game development. I'm planning on trying to work on some bigger projects to learn
the full scope of game dev when I have time to properly playtest and polish my work. Otherwise I look forward to the next Ludum Dare!

This is really fun and I like the mood. Is there a way to restart when you die without relaunching?

@Dooskington, @ORECROS, @TerraCottaFrog
Fixed sorry about that.

It was restartable at first, but I had to remove it because it broke the world gen, has something to do with how surfaces memory is allocated.

Fun runner, may be challenging if you want to get all the polycoins.
Is there a key to restart the game?

Cool game! I only wish that there was a way to restart once you die! The art work was very cool!!!

I laughed a lot at the audio for the jump, in a good way :D

Took me a while to realize that the noise was the blocks breaking, as it was rhythmic at first, and when it started speeding up and going nuts I got freaked out.

Cool game, what's with the bird aesthetic?

Hi, nice game ! We're realizing a video with several games of the Ludum Dare #35.
Can you add your game on ? (it's free)
So we can include also your game in the video ;)
p.s. write #LDJAM in the game's description

Funny little game! The learning curve is to high. It starts to difficult. Keep up the good work!

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 ( 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.
