A Platformer for Ants

Author Comments

This game is a simple platformer. If you fall on spikes or monsters you die, and you’ll respawn on the last checkpoint.

Oh, also, every new room you discover has to fit to the camera, so, everytime you enter a new room, everything shrinks to fit on your screen. The checkpoints will reset this.

I really love the idea but I had not enough time to polish it, add art or some more mechanics, but eh, its “finished”.

The sprites are all mine except for the main character, made by GrafxKid (https://opengameart.org/content/classic-hero)

This game was made in 48 for the Ludum Dare Game Jam, theme "The more you have, the worse it is".

It was a really fun game with a fun idea of a game mechanic. For a game made in 48h it was awessome! When the screen really starts to pan out, your characters, and all of the enemies really start to look as small as ants. Does anybody think they can do it without checkpoints?

I had no idea the checkpoints existed. The game looks and runs like a burnt asshole. please don't try this.

Fun, easy. :) Adding an option for a better time is a great idea.

I found a minor bug: you don't have to hit any checkpoints to complete the game. This allows you to beat in under 1 minute: https://imgur.com/a/yMlKj

What is this, a game for ants?
Well, the humor was absolutely on spot, and it's amazing to see that this game can be made within 48 hours. I am truly inspired.
