Come On Up

by Gumboot - Jam Entry

"Come on up Brad, my parents aren't home ;)"

Come On Up is the tale of a youth, Brad, that just wants to see his girl!
He's scaled houses for girls before but this one takes it to the next level, and many more...

Make your way to the top and overcome the obstacles of dating a girl with high standards ;)

WASD or Arrow Keys - Movement
Space - Jump left or right
Enter - Select
Hurry up, she's waiting!

Art by Brieyh'leai Simmons
Code by Nic Lupfer

EDIT 1: Fixed a bug which caused Brad to infinitely flop around after being hit by the little brother.

EDIT 2: We are going to implement something later today to fix the infinite flopping, sorry about that!

EDIT 3: 2nd attempt at fixing the infi-flop bug, also fixed an issue with the text bubbles not fully hiding.

really good humor and the platforming was pretty fun! there was good progression in the level design. i got to the room at the top and got stuck in a flopping-on-the-ground animation though. not sure if that was intentional but brad isnt looking so good

The pacing of the game is pretty impressive. I liked how the progression of the game was designed into the story.

So clever! Way to take a simple mechanic and really play with it. Loved the story interstitials - particularly during the boss fight as your punishment for getting hit. Good call on reminding me to press space there. Totally thought Brad was going to get locked out at the end!

I had to glitch jump on overhangs to progress, but appart from that it's a REALLY FUN game :D I liked the fight against the little brother, having to understand the simple mechanics and then using it against him :D

I like the little badass brother and the humor.
The mechanics are so simple but it works so good.
I wish it to play it with climbing and hit sounds. :)

A very fun climbing/platforming-game, that even manages to include story-progression without breaking the flow (with great humor)! Very cool game, and the art is great!

I still managed to get caught in the "endless flopping" bug on my first playthrough, so it seems it has not been completely fixed yet :)

Nice looking game.
Simple and fun.
Having a second gameplay was a good surprise.
(get a bug: infinit "fail" animation against the young boy, I was on the top of the screen...)

Really well made and polished up game! You guys really captured THAT emotion and put it into this game. By THAT I mean the emotion which moves humanity forward: getting laid. Haha!

I had some trouble with getting the WebGL build, the Windows build ran fine but I ran into the one bug where brad flops infinitely after being hit by the little brother. Still a great game, loved the graphics, mood, and the humor. Movement and jumping on the outside of the house was great, nice touch with the falling leaves too.

Ahah this was hella fun!
I liked beating up the shit out of this kid. Humor is great. :)

Good animations and I really like solid feel of controls.
Small but very satisfying.

This is quite impressive! Excellent work! I like how well you combined several mechanics into a cohesive gameplay. Took me a while to figure out how to defeat the brother (Guess it's been a while since playing Zelda).

Really nice characterization of the characters, nice that you mixed it up with the little brother boss fight. Climbing got a little drawn-out after a while and I'm not entirely sure how it relates to the theme. Very funny though!

That is a nice entry! The controls are directly. At the beginning i though you are not allowed to fall down, but around the half of the game, you had to fall down some levels to get to the correct position. The brother bossfight is a great idea. Very well done!

Dec 19, 2016 @ 7:30pm

Really liked this game! The graphics and animations were really well done. Too bad there was no sound... Great game overall though! Congrats!

Dec 26, 2016 @ 11:25pm

this is a good game. what I mean is that it is a fun, and super playable experience. the animations are really good as well. This really would have taken the cake if there was some audio to it... just a little even would have gone a long way.
