Smarter than Death

Author Comments

Smarter than Death is a short platforming-game for the Be Smart, Don't Start competition in germany about the physical and psychological issues that come with the smoking of tabacco.

You play as a little ball called "Dulki" who has to go to the doctor for a check-up. Unfortunately the only way to get there is to walk through a schoolyard and a local disco, which have a reputation of not being the safest places to be...

You are tasked with completing 3 levels while avoiding cigarettes and spikes. Side effects of smoking may include a slower movement speed, withdrawal syndroms, so it's up to you if you want to use the short-term benefits to your advantage or to suffer from the long-term consequences of a nicotine addiction.

This game was programmed by myself in a span of 2 months. A friend (Bennet Frey) helped me with the main menu, the pause menu and playtesting.

Any feedback would be greatly appreciated.
