Well, Mike ran in to problems getting ldjam.com working properly with about 12 hours left in the Compo, so this is the backup plan.

Protect Your PS4!!

by DeqingLi - Jam Entry

Left/RightArrowKey = Walk

UpArrowKey = Lift

DownArrowKey+Left/RightArrowkey=Put Down

Space=Jump

Space*2=Double Jump

X=Smash

This game is action-based(though a little bit cumbersome), and a little like

terraria. (music is lovely ! !)

Your goal is to protect your ps4 in your room within certain amount of time by

blocks.




It's my first time to join LD, and I am not that familiar with Unity3D Engine,

so things became quite different from what I expected.

But anyway I am enjoying designing games, and have a really good time.

Besides, my appreciation to the other teammate " cyprinoid " for creating

artwork.




Because of inadequate planning ahead of time, collision detecting is a little

weird.

So if you are stuck somewhere, try jumping.

Sorry for bugs you encounter while playing.

Have fun.


HIGHLY LOOK FORWARD TO ANY FEEDBACKS!!!

It's good for a 1st time LD game.
It's quite easy to let things out of control in the jam.
After being familiar with the tools you use and the event. You can make better games.

This was a really fun game! The theme was super charming and the frantic gameplay kept me on my toes. I loved using myself as a human shield when all else failed. Also, letting the player accidentally smash their own PS4 is pure evil. Great job!

Cute graphics! Funny game. Wish blocks were easier to place. Died with a minute left!

画面看起来完成度很高,音乐轻松愉快和保护PS4的危机情况感觉不太符合……玩法虽然看明白了但操作起来比较捉急,物理方面的问题也进一步影响了玩法的展现,如果gameplay部分的完成度更高一些就好啦

Nice game! I found the gameplay a little confusing at first, but it didn't take much time for me to understand. Music could be more fitting though, maybe something a little faster.

I get your problems with the controls, I experienced something similar when developing my game. I wonder if you made it so you could go through stuff when jumping because of those bugs. If you want to know how I solved it you can contact me or check my game's source code :)

Could use some polishing, but nice game overall.

@jramell Thank you for your helping.
I will check your source file, and if I still can't solve the problem I will contact you.

Nice game, especially for your first Ludum Dare! Block placement could be improved (maybe by letting you place them with your mouse around your character?), but the game works, is fun, and that's something you should be proud of. :)

Very fun arcade like game. Felt the tension of trying to protect the PS4 with what little blocks I had left. Those last 10 seconds, scary. Good job dude :D

The block placing and collision in general makes it a bit tricky, the idea decent though. I wouldn't want my ps4 getting hit by rockets either.

机制比较清晰,保护PS4。

但是一些作者的想法和好意可能反倒让游戏变得复杂但是却没有好玩起来。本身是一个平台跳跃的形式,但是操作却非常得捉鸡,跳跃和↑键的重合,↓键的问题,还加入的锥x也是不能很好的结合起来——如果是一个平面的2d没有跳跃和重力的游戏可能会更有意思也更加优雅和简约。

那么目标和方法也更加清楚,想尽办法去操作和利用周围的事物保护ps4——可以做得更加的有操作和策略感,也更能找到乐趣~比如纯粹用推箱子的玩法来保护ps4...等等这样的减少玩法特性的数量反倒有可能达到更好的效果呢~

美术比较完整,平台等等的内容也比较完善。
加油~

完成度挺高的赞一个,刚开始玩不喜欢操作方式觉得有些别扭,玩了几遍熟练之后就顺畅很多了,细节不错,主角被导弹打到打懵逼的表情特别逗。另外感觉游戏节奏有点平,可能类似后面导弹越来越频繁或加些别的机制会让游戏更紧张刺激。

Cool idea, but the pick up/put down inputs were very finnicky, making it hard to protect your PS4. Keep working at it! Unity is great once you use it a bit and get more comfortable.

Nice! A fun concept and smooth block placing. The difficulity is good, i feel that survival type games often can get too hard. I think that some blocks could have some sort of gravity, and the movement could have been a bit smoother. Great job though!

Hey, I liked your game it was actually fun.
You can improve the audio and the graphics at some point but overall not bad!
And please go and try out my game!

Good game, but physics could be better.

Finally
the pixel-aesthetics and the color-setting really so lovely and very attractive to me.
and very humorous,the PS4 was destoried by myself's smash in the end -o- omg..so it really makes me think there must be some ironies contained in the story and the core-design; excited and interesting!
