Floor is Lava!

by #gmdsgn - Jam Entry

The room is a place in with one must have a great imagination to hold out against boredom.
It’s easy when you’re young, but getting harder when you’re getting older.
Luckily a team of three named “Barely Possible” bring you the most barely accurate lava simulator.

Very good graphics solution. Gameplay is good and addictive. Easy to understand how to play. Brilliant idea. Keep it up!

Cool gameplay, a little bit addictive! ^^
I really like the graphical style! The color scheme works very nicely imo and is nice balanced. Sound design is also nice, fits things together. Although I found the high pitch shortly after you jump quite hurt my ears.
Great game guys :)

Graphics are great! Animations are great! I liked the music, but thought it could have been faster paced to emphasize the urgency of lava. I am equally bad at playing DoodleJump, but this is very well done.

Haha, loved the physics!
Great take on the theme, pretty fun to play!
The beginning is a bit long though, maybe putting the player directly on the platform after the first try could be great!

Super entry though, great job!

This is just great, art and animation look fantstic I especially love the furniture swimming in lava: very dynamic. As a small convenience feature, I would have wished for jump not only on space but also n W and arrow-up. Would have allowed me to play with one hand. but thats a detail, this is really polished and my highest ranked game so far.

Awesome core idea) 248 meters is my current record. Can I save his ass from lava completely? :D

Thats a really enjoyable, fun and very good game!! the only problem is, sometimes, i thought that some objects on the backgroud i could use to jump there too, making me fall to my death. but other that that, the graphics are really nice and the game has a good challenge, great job!

Nice art style and a fun idea. Nice job. :)

Awesome idea for a game, it immediately caught my eye :D And very fun implementation! It's great to get the right momentum and jump all the way to the top of the screen and to the other side!

There were a couple tiny lag spikes which were just enough to throw me off course once or twice, but otherwise it played very smoothly!

Re: "Hahahaha amount of Polish !? Plz tell me what you mean by that :D"
Sorry, not a native speaker. ._. I mean I'm amased by how polished this game is.

Loved the concept, i had something similar in mind at the beginning of the jam but changed my mind later :)
and the graphics are absolutely great !!!

Nice work! Pixel art is very nice. The jumping is too loud in comparison to the music I think. Sticks to the theme and does it well. Nicely done!

Lovely graphics, challenging game! I included it in my compilation video series of the Ludum Dare 37 games, if you’d like to take a look. :)
