I would probably classify this game as an ‘Endless Runner’


#5

Nah, that’s not an endless runner.
I think that its own genre. The first game I remember in that genre was Yetisports pingu throw in 2004.


#6

Would gameplay like that of Flappy Bird count? Or must it be a game where you can’t really directly control your height?


#7

This is my favorite of that type


#8

Flappy Bird is a little last week :slight_smile: but why not take the concept and remix it a little to tie in the theme a little more closely.


#9

Oh yeah, love that one as well :). Played it to the end hahaha.


#10

After doing some research, I found that these were called launch games. They have a whole section on kongregate at http://www.kongregate.com/Launch-games.

Thanks for sharing! :slight_smile:


#16

Wish I could have created something for this but I started a new job three months ago and I am mentally spent by the time I get home now. “Next” Game Jam though, I’ll have hired some good people to work under me by then and can take a breath. Love the products, company and your commitment to doing these jams. /cheers

I may not have access to the internet on the 20th, is there any other way to submit a game? Can I just post a link here, without putting it in some form like last time?

Thanks!

Here is my attempt… Its called “Monsters Fun” Hope I was within the rules :smile:

-Click the mouse button when you see the Bat to give an additional push
-The Mines will push you up and right… the clouds will push you down.

How far can you go! :wink:

FINAL Project “Turbo”.

Press space to dictate how fast the car moves, includes upgrades and achievements.
Sorry for the load time, but I didn’t have time to create asset bundles. After the initial load, if you play the game a second time, the load should be much faster.

Have fun! :smile:
