We made this game in 48 hours for NGJam8.Its been fun.
When the theme was announced(at midnight here..),Padraig immediatly shouted(via IM) "CAB IN THE WOODS".....get it :D. fun.We brainstormed ideas,eventually deciding to make a game based on a taxi driver for the supernatural, who only takes fares from pop-culture monsters :D. then went to bed,where Joe had an Epiphany and the morning after said "What if rather than making 1 game, we make 3 mini-games..cause like..who needs sleep?".Everyone agreed so we began.We made 3 games with completly different gameplay mechanics,Slender being a pacman clone,Yeti being a momentum avoidance game, and swamp being a mario style water level.Fun for all the family.

Phew, Thank god thats done, hope you enjoy, we've been staring at this thing for the last 48 hours and no longer feel gentle with reviews :D

Thanks- Team DJP

Thats a first D: . We really worked hard to get the acheivements to work. Dang. Sorry about that, its probably something silly we did, we'll check the code, and if something seems off, we'll reupload a could have just been a bad frame update, or something silly.

Thanks for the review and stars :D


Rated 2.5 / 5 stars

Poor controls. Unresponsive. Bad physics (in terms of gravity).
Sub-par and inconsistent graphics.
Note: Awkward turning of cab in the Slender game, "stuck" movements in the underwater game.

But considering as a game jam, this is actually quite good because there are 3 mini-games in here. Great job. Looking forward for a more polished version of this game.
The low score is based on the game quality, not the time frame given. Sorry for that.

Seppyb63 responds:

Cheers :D
We did our best in the timeframe, given were not that proficient in AS3 :D


Rated 0 / 5 stars

Honestly, there were parts of this game that ruined the experience for me. The corners on the taxi were awkward to take, and when I clicked on the 'How To' button and it took me to the instructions, there was no way to get back to the menu other than reloading the page.

Seppyb63 responds:

ESC to get back from the howto page to the levelSelect.
Sorry if the unpolished nature of the game ruined it for you.Next time we tackle a NG project we'll allocate more time for debugging and polish :D.


Rated 3 / 5 stars

Like sparkyterror, I also got off the road into the trees.

Seppyb63 responds:

Sorry about that, it seems to be the only game killing bug found. for now, hit Esc to quit back to the level select and maybe try a different level. :D
