Black Hole Comming – Fixed

For all of those that want to try my entry and found an import error, i fixed it (it was caused by pymunk, i forgot to remove pymunk import from code).

I also reduced the zip package by half it’s original size by removing useless files and version control info. So for you that already download the broken version it will be less pain to download it again.


Here it is also WIN32 .exe:

Download WIN32

Here is a screnshot of my entry running in Windows XP (at work pc..shhh):

CoMuTor – Post Compo

First of all, thanks so much to everyone who left feedback to me in the ratings area.  I have taken a bunch of the suggestions that people made and have worked more on improving CoMuTor in the past 2 weeks.  Here is the latest work in progress of a post compo version of CoMuTor.  The readme file contains all the changes that I made so far based on my own and others feedback.  I welcome further feedback in the comments on this post for anyone that liked CoMuTor enough to try and play it again.  I’m just having fun working on aspects of polishing and modifying this silly little game.  I look forward to more Ludum Dares!!

CoMuTor v1.1 – Post Compo win32

Changes from compo version:

– added visual score feedback and level indicators
– added 3 minute time limit
– made it harder to eat people
– points scale with faster/smaller vehicles
– rebalanced point system
– rebalanced timing / car release system
– vehicles have different speeds now
– added people to vehicle sprites
– broke out car and suv sprite body for better coloring system
– crushing gas trucks no longer counts towards crush count
– vehicles running into you no longer spawn people
– adjusted menu instructions to reflect new changes

Here is a link to the updated post compo version that will stay current. ** NEW **

Here is link to win32 binaries only final compo version

Here is link to Mac build of compo version (thanks to jlnr!) ** NEW **

Here is link to full source and media archive of compo version


You are a monster who has decided you will take out your aggression on the morning commuters.  You can  crush cars and SUVs with abandon as long as you land squarely on them with your jump move.  You must be mindful of the dangerous GAS trucks!   Keep away from those at all costs and let them safely leave the screen.  Every car or SUV that escapes your wrath and flees the left of the screen costs you the same amount of negative points as if you had crushed them with a fatal jump move.  After each vehicle is destroyed it’s inhabitants flee in panic.  You can chase them down and eat them.  Don’t let vehicles run into you though as this will also cost you score as well.  The game speed will continue to increase with every 10 vehicles destroyed.  Since you are an invincible monster you are merely playing for a positive score until you retire from your activities.

Managed to cram some form of “game” into it but it definitely didn’t turn out how I meant it given all the triage and feature cuts I had to make both in programming and art.  I had an awesome time though just the same.  Can’t wait to play everyone’s entries!

Roads of Dare 1.0 FINAL

The main menu of Roads of Dare

Download here

Other screenies, time log and the above download here

It’s a board game for 1-3 human players, with AIs taking over the other 1-2 cars depending on how many humans there are. Cars can’t jump over each other, so if there’s no free lanes, you can block the traffic. Different routes are longer than others, and it’s possible to run out of gas.

Everyone plays with the same cards, only shuffled differently. Have fun!

Win32 version working

EDIT:  Seems like I forgot to put the Readme in the win32 version zip. Whoops. Quick reupload.

Ok, the .exe file included in my upload didn’t work it seems, I’m not on a Windows desktop while developing, so I didn’t have time to try the compiled version during the compo. But I’m pretty darn sure I have a working version now. I updated the Final-post with a download link but here it is again


The fonts gets a bit messed up in the win version for some reason but It’ll have to do. Changing things more than getting it to compile after the compo would be cheating, right? :)

Color Eater Goes to Win32

MinMo LD11 Final

MinMo is my entry into the LD11 – Minimalist Theme compo:

final minmo screenshot


Two win32 versions are now available, a fullscreen and a windowed.  No other changes were made to gameplay or bugs.  The resolution is 1024×768.  I recommend the fullscreen version for a more immersive experience.  😉

Fullscreen win32 available here (2.3MB)

Windowed 1024×768 win32 available here (2.3MB)

full zip with win32 exe and source here (3.5MB)

I’m hoping to post a linux version / instructions soon too.

The goal is to get from the left of the screen to the right of the screen. Each time you do the world will advance one level. Each level brings more flowers and enemies to overcome.

You play as a character with two forms. “Min” – who is thin, vulnerable and snakelike. “Mo” – who is an invulnerable and immovable gelatinous mass.

You can only move around when you are Min but if you are falling off of a block you can transform into Mo to crush enemies below you. If you happen to be cornered by an ememy as Min, you can transform into Mo to let them pass by safely. You can only get hit by the enemies once or the game ends. You can continue though so never fear!

The game world consists of rising and falling blocks that also play the music of the game in time to their movements. There are little flowers that grow from time to time that you can collect for points.

This was created with ruby and the incredible gosu game library.

I used the awesome sfxr for all game sounds too!

Bitmaps created in Tile Studio after some initial concept art inspiration in Corel Draw.

I finished this with 3 minutes left in the deadline. That means that I didn’t have a chance to play it that much to tune for fun. It is functional and seems stable. The player crushing enemies collision detection could be a little better for sure and the levels could advance in a more interesting way. All in all I am very happy with having completed this project in such a short time. I didn’t think I was going to be able to make it under the deadline the past 4 hours or so leading up to the end so I am glad that I actually managed to pull something off. I’ll post a post mortem later perhaps. I can’t wait to check out all the other entries! Good luck and congrats to everyone who participated!

win32.dll The Game

A few days ago my laptop got violently attacked by all sorts of bloatware. I’m guessing it was due to some IE hole or something, oh well. Anyway, it inspired this game. You get to destroy bloatware – yay!

Download for windows or get the source svn://



Oh, and you can get all kinds of crazy combos if you don’t miss any boxes and are really fast.  So get playing!  Made with python / pygame as per usual.

MinMo screenshot #3 and win32 test

So, after some sleep last night I have finally finished a good working pass on all the character vs moving blocks collision tests.  Had a few bugs / kinks to work out that I introduced due to tiredness last night.  Now everything seems stable and falling seems to work good enough for now.  Plus, the characters position correctly updates as the blocks move up and down and the character can now fall down and meet a moving block without problems.  Plus, thanks to the new algorithms I should be able to implement similar ones for any other objects / obstacles / enemies I manage to implement in next 8 hrs or so!  😉

win32 available here for anyone curious as to its workings / progress.

Screenshot #3 for minmo

MinMo screen shot and win32 test file

Finally got a screen shot here along with a link if anyone on win32 wants to try my character test and let me know if my exe doesn’t work. Basically got my character tiles from last night all coded in and initially timed between states.

The current player character MinMo has two states. A ‘Min’ state where he is a little thin snake and a gelatinous block ‘Mo’ state where he can’t move but will probably be invincible. You are frozen as ‘Mo’ currently until the time is up where you then transform back to ‘Min’.

You use arrows to move left and right, space to transform, and ESC quits. Now for more game elements!

win32 exe available here

Hi all,

I’m not exactly new to LD, but it’s been quite a while. I’m planning to enter LD11, and I have some interesting ideas up my sleeve :) I’ll be writing all my code completely from scratch, using Win32 -I have a lot of experience doing this though, so I don’t think it’ll be a handicap.

I’ll also be recording a time lapse video of my progress, which might be amusing to watch afterwards – Good luck everyone (you’re going to need it :P)
