Super Powerup Dash (LD44 demo)

Made in 72 hours for Ludum Dare 44, Super Powerup Dash is an endless platformer based on the theme "Your life is currency." Before starting a run, choose powerups to help get you as far as possible. But choose wisely, because each powerup takes a cut of your HP!

This is only a prototype of the full game. There's unfortunately only one repeated level, as I did not have time to finish the procedural generation algorithm. Nonetheless, it was a fun challenge to make this within 72 hours. Look for a more complete version of the game in the coming months!

Hey, not bad! As I recall from you making the game at our Ludum Dare venue, this was the second game you were working on, after the first one didn't work out, no? That struggle is real; I'm glad you managed to make something out of what little time you had. Best of luck the next jam!

Found a problem. All movement powerups are OP. Literally you dont need the rest of powerups and also if you have the flying abiliy+all movement powerups you can literally fly, the hp counter restarts itself for no reason. But it was ok for 72 hours I guess

Cool game. Would be nice if it got harder as it progresses.

I get that it's just a prototype, but the concept really doesn't work when you can keep going indefinitely with no power-ups - and very easily at that.

It's an interesting concept, though, and I definitely look forward to seeing the full version.
