    Death Boulder Jones update

    Okay, so maybe the name is now Death Boulder Jones. I have decided to call the main character Jones, as a little “hats off” to the character who inspired him.

    I have the following done:

    – Jones runs! He steers!
    – Jones takes damage and dies when he hits traps!
    – Traps are made:
    – Arrows that shoot from faces in the wall!
    – A massive boulder that follows you unceasingly!
    – Bubbling lava pits that kill you instantly if you touch them!
    – Click-and-drag to create walls in order to protect Jones and show him where to go!
    – Moar exclamation points!!!!!

    Still to do:
    – Game tweakage
    – More traps
    – Level design
    – Powerups
    – Money pickups

    I have a few hours I can work today, then that’s it. Hoping to get this done to a level that makes it fun. Still, I’m really very proud of this already and I think it’ll be great for only having 10 hours or so to work on it.
