There was a Game Programming Competition on Facepunch forums which I was taking part in. We had a month time to make an arcade style game.

Rundiculous is a running game that encompasses elements from VVVVVV and Bit.Trip Runner. The goal of the game is to reach the end of each level and collect as many blue crystals as possible to get the highest score and do it with as few fails possible. In each level player has to face many challenges to pass the level, from tricky terrain to malfunctioned robots. To do that he uses a set of skills; jumping, sliding, kicking and gravity flipping.

Unfortunately I didn't manage to finish it. Some features are also not fully implemented(kicking) and it only has four levels. Three levels are short and simple made mainly for the players to get used to the controls. The fourth level "First Encounter" is just a taste of what the game should have been if it was finished (thought the level is missing some terrain data).

The build I submitted to the Facepunch Game Programming Competition #5 can be downloaded here:

Other info:
- Made using a heavily modified Advanced2D engine (C++, DirectX9, FMOD)
- I did all the art myself (player is obviously a ripoff though)
- Configurable controls and screen settings via options menu
- DirectInput joystick support (I recommend playing with a joystick)
- Level highscores
- Three music tracks by Jaden "Mongo" Duchene https://www.facebook....38258232906581


Big thanks to Mischievous and Kristo for testing and support, and Mongo for his great music Posted Image

I hope you like it. I might finish it one day.

I uploaded a video showing the gameplay of my game Rundiculous . As I said before, it wasn't finished, so there are just 3 short "tutorial" levels and one a bit more challenging.

That looks like fun! The fact that he can run upside down is a nice feature! Its a fun game, as good as Mario. You should consider releasing this on mobile devices. I think it would do good in the market!

Thanks.

The competition poll/judging has begun. Only 6 entries from around 30 people that originally wanted to participate. No voter bothered to write their "reviews", and I doubt anyone has even played the games. I think they rate it by the pictures...
