Pharaoh's Pyramid

by actuallycameron - Jam Entry

The pharaoh has commanded that you will construct him a new pyramid. Can you construct it before time runs out? Or will you anger the pharaoh and be sentenced to death? There's only one way to find out...

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.

A nice game. It's really fun to click around once you've got a hang of the process. Graphics are really smooth and clean too.

Nice idea for a game! The sound didn't seem to work for me, but the gameplay was fun and the controls worked without a problem.

The game was great!
The only frustrating thing is that some coins fall on the side where the Upgrade button is and you can't collect them. The game really kept me playing.

Lovely graphics! I included it in my compilation video series of Ludum Dare 36, if you’d like to take a look :)

Very Very fun game! Very simple!

Love the graphics!
Love the game play!

The music/sound did not work for me. I think its a 64 and 32 bit issue, next time build the game for 64 and 32 bit so that you/I can install the correct one depending on how many bits your/my PC is.

Other than that great game!!!

@xzippyzachx Thanks for playing. I uploaded a 64 bit now if you want to try it out. Thanks for the feedback!

@actuallycameron HMMMM! That did not seem to fix it. I recommended that because I had the same issue with my game and having 64 and 32 bit fixed it for me. It might be a bug with unity.

@xzippyzachx Hmm, interesting. I'll keep looking into it.

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.
