Pumpt It

Share Collapse

Author Comments

This is a small timed puzzle game you can finish in 2-3 minutes made during the Ludum Dare #46. The theme was "Keep it alive".


Find the correct pump to reanimate the robot by finding which wire connects to the robot, then activate it. Pump the wrong pump and the robot's head explodes. 


Click on any of the pumps to activate the system but choose wisely.

this game is hard and its very hard to tell witch pump leads where but it was fun

Interesting and nice graphics but I had technical difficulties:
Opera browser: invisible cursor.
Firefox: looking around is difficult and some pumps are impossible to reach.
Maybe key controls could help? Arrows to look around; Numbers or Tab to select pump?

JulienLussiez responds:

Thanks for your feedback. I didn't know about the opera issue, I will see if I can fix it. Each pump can be reached easily so I think there might be a technical issue. I'm sorry that you had this experience. I will investigate this issues. Thanks again for your comment.

The message from the robot was bad data, you only provided 7 of the 8 bits from that byte.
Please go back and find the correct message and relay it.

JulienLussiez responds:

That's right, I should have known! One bit was literally masked.

Well polished, and the idea is nice. Don't know if I got lucky, but I didn't make a mistake. Would be nice to see additional mechanics, such as valves which switch automatically? Or you can switch? I duuno. Just a thought.

JulienLussiez responds:

Yes I see what you mean. I found this little concept in one night during a game jam and I knew it needed additional mechanics but I didn't find many ideas to improve the gameplay and I ran out of time. But switching valves is a good idea. It's funny because I thought about this mechanics at the beginning of the jam but I took an other road.


Also does that message say 92?

JulienLussiez responds:

Thanks for your feedback. Yes, don't you think 92 is a lovely message? In machine langage it means a lot.

But now I regret to not have put the number 42...
