SPACEPANTS

by kallotec - Jam Entry

A simple quest for pants.

Why does he not have pants on? And why is he in space? Who knows. I'm sure you've woken up in stranger situations.

Strategically navigate using your jetpack through the obstacle course. Can you get to the SPACEPANTS before fuel runs out?

Controls: W, A, D, Space

ProTip #1: Combining jump with jetpacking is a more efficient use of fuel.
ProTip #2: Fullscreen mode might feel abit easier.

-- The game takes a bunch of seconds to load, please be patient --

Notes

I decided to ignore the official theme, and use the "Limited Resources" theme instead which I liked more.

Inspired by https://youtu.be/MwpmqMnngRk?t=57s

Enjoy!

Way to go! Who needs pants or official themes anyway?! More power to ya! Well done for the "Limited Resources" theme! Very challenging game. Are there any fuel refills? I only got to the place on that rightmost screenshot.

Seeing how far you can get on a tank of fuel is a clever, repeatable challenge. And I like thinking of reasons why he doesn't have any pants. Congrats on finishing! Nice work!

Ha ha! Scored 400. Was forced to jump on spikes...pantsless. Wasted so much fuel failing jumps on the spinning platforms ;)

I liked combining jumping with the jetpack, neat idea. The spinning platforms were a nice challenge, too.

And while you didn't use the final theme, you still made something quite nice which accomplished what you were going for.

Nice game, thank you for sharing it :)

I'm still wondering where are the pants. 10/10

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.
