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".

so difficult grrrr

oh m y god what levels are there!?


Fun little game, nice concept, plenty of room to expand as well. I'd suggest adding a scoring mechanism, like getting coins or gems or whatever, but your score resets with the display if you use a checkpoint, so to go for a high score you have to not use checkpoints, thus the higher difficulty. I also think this game would be a good candidate for a random level generator.

I love this game.
