Ocean's Twelve 5 Points

You got all the gold, but with less skill and finesse than a beatboxing turkey

Office Space 10 Points

You were in, out, and on your way to Chotchkie's in just 200 seconds

Sexy Beast 25 Points

You got the gold in under 150 seconds, about time you retired to Spain, right?

Italian Job 50 Points

You dirty tea leaf! You half-inched all that gold in under 110 seconds!

Created as part of the Mini LD #34 competion over a few hours last weekend, the aim of which was to create a game confined to certain bizarre aspect ratios. In this case, 18x64. However, to get it accepted on Newgrounds I upscaled it 8x. You can play the original at http://omgames.co.uk/smal lminild.html

Collect all the gold in the shortest time possible (personal best is 133 seconds)
Up/left/right to move and jump
K to restart the level
SPACE show the map and gold remaining
Press any key to start

UPDATE: made a few changes based on the great feedback so far...
-Added medals! I think...Someone please let me know if it works
-Added WASD controls
-Tweaked the level design a little to prevent the player getting stuck in a few areas
-Hold down the spacebar to see how much gold you have left to collect
-Working on a map...Stay tuned!

-Map is now done, just hold down the space bar to see where you are and where the gold is
-Added high scores!


Its not a bad game, though most of the challenge lies with how fast your guy moves rather than the platforming itself. There is not any real difficulty to it but I don't think you meant there to be Its good enough to be a little time waster but I wouldn't say good enough for me to try to get it in 110 sec medal. I would've preferred a bit more creative levels with the maze design beyond the one and perhaps some difficulty to finding the gold, maybe some that is hidden. Overall its average though, with very little difficulty and your medals seem to imply this game is meant for speed runners.

Quite the game. Not that hard, though it took me more than 200 seconds to get all that gold. It's simple, and seeing how you made it in what, tn hours, tops? You have quite a good talent.

This game I honestly, a very great one and it was worth the 315 seconds for me to beat it. And considering how you made it in only a few hours, phenomenal! The whole idea of the thin screen really caught on after a while and the transitions between areas felt a lot more interesting than a typical game's would. I can't imagine what you'd be able to produce in a few DAYS worth of time :P

Hope to see more from you.

Awesome game for the time limit. Very addicting. Great job!

You malcontents need to shut up. He says it himself, he made the game in two hours. Considering the incredibly short time span, it is a brilliant little game. Very fun and I love the campiness of the graphics blown up to this size. I hope you did well in your competition.

Cheers mate! You've got to have a bit of a thick skin to make and share games, so I'm fine with the odd negative comment (can't please everyone!), but honestly it's comments like yours that make the effort worthwhile. Sent you an internet high five, but I'm with a crap ISP so you may not receive it until tomorrow.
