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.

One room-one car-one flag

by ragnta - Compo Entry

Hi,

This is my first HTML5 native javascript Ludum Dare entry. You controll a toy figure. You have to collect pencil to demolish the towers. The towers can drop flag, and you have to back to your base with it.

The base can heal you, and if you collect all the pencil and didn't demolish all the towers, just go back to your base and it can give you a pencil.

You can controll the car with wasd.

Have fun! and write a comment :)

Best regards,
Szabolcs

update: The first guy found a minor bug: If you win or lose one or more, the maps doesn't have a flag sometimes. I fixed that, because it was one line code. Thank you for your response. :)

I'm not a fan of sketchy style graphics, but the overall feel of the game is fine. The controls are quite smooth. The collisions have a weird behavior with the car shaking back and forth. I had a few runs where no towers in the map would drop the flag, which prevented me from completing the game and made me sad. I liked the MicroMachine inspired theme and the use of pencils as weapons.

Lmao that was unexpected. Was the tower designed to look like a rage-face? hahaha for some reason it reminded me of one! Also, nice to know that are more people jamming with javascript. We did it too!

Reminds me of Micro Machine games. Good job.

This is actually pretty fun to play once I figured it out. I did manage to beat it.

This is actually pretty fun, though it appears that there's a high chance to get the flag from the tower nearest to the base, so you rarely need to go to the other end of the room. Seems like there are a lot of possible extensions to increase the challenge, maybe have the projectiles knock pencils off the car or something :D

With smooth controls and a very straightforward gameplay, It's a game worth checking out. The art style, while "bad", were used to its fullest to agree into a theme and everything worked out into a game that has a lot of room to grow.

I like the cute graphical style. The gameplay itself is quite difficult, or maybe I am just bad at games!

Good sounds, good challenge, an overall tight, classic game. I'd like to know the backstory of this bizarre world!

For a moment I had troubles figuring out the objectives but once I got the hang of it it turned out surprisingly fun to play! I really liked the gameplay, I would have liked more levels to explore the potential a bit more :)

Now I think you know it, the graphics are a complete mess x) Now that made the game pretty funny somehow, and didn't prevent from enjoying the gameplay so why not!
