Dodge Stuff

Author Comments

Life on a construction site is hard. When it gets windy all sorts of stuff comes falling down. I'm afraid your hard hat isn't enough to protect you! Dodge that Stuff!

This is my first ever game and my first solo project in years. The instructions are included in the game, hit the 'm' key to turn off the music, hit the 'q' key to toggle the quality. Try to survive as long as possible to get the highest score, submit your score to see how you stack up to other players worldwide. Enjoy!

PS: reviews are immensely appreciated :)

Edit 1: fixed a number of performance issues.

Lacks Lasting Appeal

This didn't entertain me for more than five minutes. It's nothing special to be honest.

Try adding some features or something to make in more interesting.

Needed some polish

Good effort i would say. But really what it needed was just a bit of polish. In the sense that there is alot of small things that need work.

First, being the character and control. There is not enough friction between him and the ground, he slides around way to much. And the walk animation was broken. He took one step and just floated the rest of the way.

Also there are frame rate issues. First off, i think the overall frame rate needs to be raised. Secondly, when you get that many vector graphics moving around on screen, your going to get some lag. Unless you change the quality to medium or low. Which was not an option here. You have no buttons for it and you took away the right click menu. Lowering quality would have made the game run alot smoother.

There also needs to be more variety. Change the game up a bit every once and a whole to keep the interest of the player.

There also needs to be some kind of icon for the extra points that float down. Simply having white numbers is a little hard to see.

And me score was 0 every time i played, even though i lasted about 3-4 minutes. Wierd.

And one last points. The music you put it sounds like its from a prono, and the moans you made for the character certainly dont help the prono theme either. lol. Accidental funny. Well done.

But the game looked good and th webcam and high score table was a nice touch. So keep going.

First of all, thanks for the very useful review. I'm not exactly sure what's causing the framerate issues, I have however uploaded a new version that should run somewhat smoother. There is an hotkey (q) to change the quality of the game though, as it says in the comments and how-to-play. the objects should be falling down faster the higher your score gets, to make the game more challenging , I'm afraid the effect is a little too subtle so I'll look into that as well ;).

The score is lowered by 400 points every time you get hit, that might be your problem. Because 400 points is a little harsh I lowered it to 50 in the new version.

Thanks,

Good game!

Got boring though, acheived 2nd all time rcord
