    LoDerunner - Finity - 48 Hour Competition Entry

    Based off of the original LodeRunner game. Get the key, then get to the exit door. Full source is included in package, so if you have Linux/Mac just install Python2.7, PyGame, and SDL (that's all that's required) and you should be good to go.

    If you're on windows, just extract the zip, and double click on AAA GAME.exe

    Controls:
    W -> Move up ladder
    A -> Move left
    S -> Move right
    D -> Move down ladder

    E -> Dig a hole in front of the player
    Q -> Place a trap in front of the player (have to give it a second to set before the enemies come)

    Wish I had known they were having an LD compo earlier. Had no preparation, so I had to learn PyGame really fast, and I hadn't touched Python in a while. Also have a 3 three year old son I had to take care of throughout. Came out okay, though. Sad that I had to cut the sound out at the end because of deployment issues with Py2exe :<

    Q -> Place trap in front of the player (sorry about that ^_^)

    Pushing the left arrow key once for each tile I want to move is so painful.

    Yeah, I lost a lot of time reimplementing things :< My first LD48, though, so I'll have something better to offer next time ^_^

    Pressing keys once and in game restart would have been great. But the basic game works okay.
    Maybe I'll fix it in the source by myself ;). Yay for pygame!

    It is somewhat frustrating. Having to tap the key to move is not very nice, and I died in a lot of silly ways because the traps kept on killing me as well.
