Revenge of Tutankhamun

by r2d2rigo - Jam Entry



You are the pharaoh Tutankhamun. From the distant past, you can look into the future thanks to your magical crown and see that brave explorers want to loot the treasures you will be buried with. Guide them to the spike traps to kill them!

Use the arrow keys or WASD to select the direction in which you will place your magical arrows. Click on an empty tile to place the arrows pointing to the direction you selected. When an explorer steps on it, it will change its direction to match the one on the arrow, except if there is a wall. You can only have one arrow in each direction active, placing a new one will remove the existing one. Arrows will disappear when they have been stepped on 3 times.

Kill all explorers to complete the level, and don't let any of them get to your crypt on the right side of the screen!



Game made by Rodrigo '@r2d2rigo' Diaz and Eduardo '@sodap_' Alonso for the Ludum Dare 36.

Thanks to Mechanical Boss @MechanicalBoss for providing the physical place for doing the jam!

Hi, nice game and congratulations ! Simple mechanics that still offered a decent amount of challenge.We're realizing a video with several games of the Ludum Dare #36. We made the same thing at the previous jam.

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. (you can already find several games from the jam there)

Graphics and idea are supercool! From the third level the game becomes challenging and the number of explorers looks scary but it adds more fun! At first i tried to pick direction of arrows with a left click on the icon but then i read instructions more carefully) Project looks complete.

Great graphics and nice gameplay, there's a point where the game is really challenging but it's still funny by the way. Congratulations!

Great graphics. The game looks very polished. Congrats.
Maybe it's too easy at the begining. You could have randomized levels between similar dificutly. Anyway, very good game

Nice gameplay and cute graphics. Overall a nice feel und a fun challenge. Maybe a slight delay at the beginning of the level would be nice, so that you could prepare a bit better. Sometimes it is easy to cheese the level by sending everyone to thei death with one arrow that you spam. Or by sending them into a loop, from where you can pick them off one by one. Otherwise the speed is crazy and it is super easy to get overrun. Overall, a fun and challenging game :)

Gets really crazy after a few levels, and the gameplay is very good and original. Not talking about the graphics, as they are too a very good efort :D

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. Many solo participants 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.
