This is my Ludum Dare 25 entry, made in under 48 hours! You play as Dracula, who is being evicted from his foreclosed mansion. Priests are trying to kick you out, but you have to collect all of your riches before you leave! This is kind of similar to games like Flicky and City Connection, but the player wraps around the screen (a la Asteroids).

You use the Arrow Keys to run and the Space key to Jump - if you can collect the powerup, you will be transformed into a bat and can clip through the platforms (as well as wrap vertically around the screen).

The point of the game is to collect all of the treasures and reach the exit without getting hit by one of the priests.

PROTIP - You can game the priests behavior by jumping to get them to jump to higher platforms!

I hope you folks enjoy it!

So according to your response to ItsThatOneGuy, apparently nobody is allowed to call this game shit because not only was it made in 48 hours, but because they haven't tried to do it themselves?

AHAHAHAHAHAHAHAHAHAHAHAHA

You're fucking hilarious. Just because someone hasn't done something themselves doesn't remove their right to criticize something. Your controls are slippery, your AI is shoddy, and the game resets every time someone dies. These are obvious and glaring flaws, and being in a 48 hour competition does not excuse yourself from this.

Whining about how it was "hard" to do something like this does not instantly make it good. And there are many other entries that I've seen in these contests that boast much better quality than something like this ever will.

Get over yourself.

AHAHAHAHAHAHAHAHAHAHAHA! Sorry, I was responding to his dis of game jams: "Probably the bias this fucking site has for anyone competing in Ludum Dare, despite the fact that 90% of the games that come from that stupid competition are horrible." I'm ok with some people not liking the games I make, because some people do like them.

I've taken the criticism about the controls to heart - I assure you. The AI - is it too shoddy because it's too hard? Too easy? And the game resetting doesn't seem that far-fetched for an arcadey game.

"I've seen in these contests that boast much better quality than something like this ever will." - totally! It's a huge contest with 1300+ games. There are amazing games that were made in 48 hours! That is exactly why I said that the comment dissing LD was uncouth.

Anyway - HAHAHAHAHAHAHAHAHA! I just got over myself.

PS - While I don't expect anyone to participate in a 48h game jam in order to rate my games, I do suggest you try to do it yourself if you're interested in game design!

I'm a medium-low skilled player and I beat this game in under 10 minutes. (And without using the protip I just saw)

Some people should be better to find a Skill Shop open right now.

As for the game itself...
For Ludum Dare it's a pretty impressive accomplishment.

Now for Newgrounds, it's quite a distractive game, a bit difficult, but totally doable, and that's where it's a bit short (I know, 48h, but I'm talking about Newgrounds related stuff here, not LD) and overall it's fun but not groundbreaking. So... "Onze sur vingt, ce qui est bien, mais pas top." - Les Nuls
