Ludum Dare 21
Bounce-onium! - Breakdance McFunkypants - 48 Hour Competition Entry
Escape from Professor Kitty von Doom's
Laboratory of Bounce-onium!
The concept I came up with was "reverse pinball" where YOU ARE THE BALL and you are trying to "escape" through the bottom of the playfield. In the game, you star as a lowly laboratory mouse who wants to escape the clutches of the evil Professor Kitty von Doom.
The professor has invented a top secret formula called Bounce-onium that he has given to the mouse in his lab which makes any animal able to bounce like a ball! Using his new powers, the mouse decides to make an escape attempt.
Use the arrow keys (or A and D) to give the "mouse" (ball) some English - like tilting the table. Try to grab the red security key-card and then touch the red door labelled "authorized staff only" to make a break for it!
This game runs at 480x800 resolution because it is designed to work on smartphones. It runs wonderfully on my Android HTC Desire Z phone, for example. If you have a non-HD (low resolution) monitor it will be too big to fit. For example, it definitely won't fit on older netbook screens which only have 600 pixels of height. I hope to make a smaller version for the people who still have low def screens. Might just produce a half-size version.
Currently does not work in IE. What a huge surprise. Try Chrome, or pretty much anything other than IE.
If anyone cares to test the game on their phone I'd be most grateful to hear whether it works. Thanks!
