by mennchen22 - Jam Entry

This game is our first Ludum Dare together. We tried to make a funny game with hard levels (we really only have one Level though). It includes spikes which really hurt and time based power ups. Feel free to leave a comment, especially if you're able to finish the game (#HardcoreGamer).

All known Bugs are fixed (a big thanks to our beta testers <3) but don't hesitate to send us a message if you find another one.

The grammatical and spelling mistakes in the game are on purpose btw. We thought it could be funny....

All textures and sounds are selfmade except for some tiles :

Rubber Duck (
Water (
Clouds (
Ground (

Used Tools:

VisualStudio with Monogame (C#) (Gamedev) (Graphics)
Cubase (Music)

Marco - Development,Leveldesign
Silas - Development,Music,Graphics

Good luck with playing "Adolf"!!!!

Ps.: If u use our code, pls send us an info about your results (love to see it)!

Decent first Ludum game. It's really difficult though, and at some points impossible to see what's coming up next.

Fun platformer but a bit too difficult for me.

Physics feels a bit weird - remember gravity is a force that accelerates the player, so jumping isn't just an up/down motion - it's the force of the player jumping giving an initial velocity, followed by the continuous force of gravity eventually reversing the momentum.
The graphical style needs work, it looks like you probably didn't have an artist.
Collisions could be done a little better, often my helicopter would explode and it didn't feel like my fault, it felt more like the game's. This needs to be avoided.
Sound effect feedback could help a lot on most actions.

The music was pretty good, and from a writing standpoint a lot of the narrative was pretty funny and I enjoyed that a lot.

Mini Submission FAQ

TEAMS: Teams entering the Jam should pick a single representative to submit your game, or create a team specific account you can share. We currently do not support Team Voting, but sharing an account and together playing and rating games is acceptable.

CAN I ENTER BOTH EVENTS?: You should pick 1 event, whichever you think it’ll do better in. If the idea is strong, and everything plays well enough, you can go Compo. If you’re a perfectionist, and would prefer people to play a more polished game, do the Jam. Historically, more games are entered in the Compo, but with more people and more time, Jam games have the potential to be better (that doesn’t mean they are). Many solo participants do enter the Jam.

If you made 2 games, unfortunately, the website doesn’t support multiple submissions per user. To submit your 2nd game, you will have to make a 2nd account. Only do this if you made 2 games. Alternatively, if one game is better than the other, then consider just entering the better game.

CAN I KEEP WORKING UNTIL THE DEADLINE?: Yes! Immediately after the 48 or 72 hours, we do something called Submission Hour. As the name suggests, it’s an extra hour for you to package, upload, and submit your games. If there were catastrophic issues trying submitting your game, or you misunderstood how submissions work, that’s okay. It happens. We’re flexible. If you need advice, check with the folks on IRC. If you need an admin, get in touch.

CAN I KEEP WORKING ON MY GAME?: Oh definitely! You should! But for the sake of judging, keep the Compo or Jam version around. You can include a link to the Post-Compo/Post-Jam version of your game on your games page, but sure your main links are the original version.

PORTS: Ports to other platforms can be done after the deadline. That said, the sooner you finish your port, the sooner people can play your game, improving your chances of placing in the final results. For best results, provide a Web version of your game, or a Windows version with no dependencies. Also be sure to rate at least 20 games to improve your visibility (Coolness).

MY GAME CRASHES, IS UNBEATABLE, OR I MADE A TYPO: We allow you to fix crashes, win condition, or tiny bugs after the deadline. In a sense, this is like “porting” to support more players. We leave this open to interpretation, but generally speaking your game should be identical to the game you submitted. No new features, just fixing mistakes you should have caught had you been better rested.

MY GAME DOESN’T SHOW UP: If you can’t find your game, it’s usually because the URL to your downloads are missing ‘http://‘. Fix your URLs ( and you will show up. Alternatively, if you just posted it, wait a minute. The cache may not have refreshed yet.

NOT LOGGED IN?: If you get a message about not being logged in, even though you are, it’s because your web browser cached the non-logged in page. You can fix this by either refreshing your cache or clearing your cache. CTRL+F5 in many browsers. Chrome is a bit more work. Press F12 to enable Developer Mode, then you can right click on the refresh button and select “Empty Cache and Hard Reload”. This option is unavailable if you are not in Developer Mode.
