Temple of Anubis

by awerar - Jam Entry

The ancient magic that lies over the Temple of anubis has been rediscovered by an egyptian explorer... but the magic is not really magic, it is technology.

2 magic spells
3 levels
wall jumping
an annoying tut-orial
aaaaaaaand, death, lots of it... (not really)

wasd: move
space: jump
scroll: change spell
rightclick: cast spell

Level info:

1st level:
The first level you are guided through by a tutorial.

2nd level: After getting the module and levitate over the gap, you need to Rise Earth to get the mana needed to finish the level.

3rd level: The third level you need to choose diffrent paths to get the mana you need to finish the level.

The music isnt made by us, its made by:Kevin MacLeod. Go check it out here:

Cool game, I like this version of ancient technology :D I got stuck in the first hole in the ground before the wand, and wall jumping didn't work properly. A button to reset the level would be nice. Same goes for checkpoints during the tutorial, so you don't have to go through all the dialog and picking up stuff again, when you mess up. The music fits well with the game and I like the wand powers. Overall, a solid game :)

Hi, nice game and congratulations ! 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.

Pretty decent "gamefeels". I do wish it allowed ways to recharge the wand though (unless I missed something)

Good start of a game, the ui for the wand was a bit large at the bottom of the screen, the wand mechanic was a great idea.

Neat game. Sorta reminds me of an old DOS platformer. Wall jumping up shafts was a little too tricky for me sometimes (if that's the intention, anyway).

Cool music choice, cute ghost.

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.
