About

This was made in 48 hours for the Ludum Dare 35 game jam and the theme it had to incorporate was "Shapeshift". The result is a simple platform game where your character has the ability to squash himself on each axis. This allows him to slide under things, pop up into the air, glide and drop down chutes. It was also the first real test of my personal javascript game library designed to help me make simple, 2D games quickly.


Click To Play

Compatibility: Chrome, Firefox and IE - no gamepad on IE. All others are pot luck I'm afraid.

The Result

I was pleased with the final game and learned a lot in the process. Better yet, I made the top 100, placing 76th overall out of 1118 entries which is hugely satisfying. Hopefully I'll be able to do another one soon and I'll be aiming to improve upon that.
