    Tiny Galaxy - Tifu - 48 Hour Compo Entry

    Tiny Galaxy is a platformer, where you run and jump around tiny planets in a tiny star system in a tiny galaxy in a kind of 2D Mario Galaxy style of game.

    There are four levels (not including the intro stage)

    Controls:
    Arrow keys to move
    A to jump
    S spins planets faster (only used in one stage)
    M mutes/unmutes the music
    Escape quits

    Game saves automatically whenever you beat a level.

    Created in BlitzMax
    Sound effects created using sfxR
    Music created using pxtone

    Love the idea and the quirky art style.
    Not to diminish your ability as a coder, but I'm amazed you pulled this all off within 48 hours.
    Nice job

    I would have tried it if it had a web or osx version. The video looks pretty cool.

    I really enjoyed this one!

    I was so waiting for someone to make this mechanic :P

    The planet gravity mechanic worked so well (must have been difficult to program) and the talking bunnies really gave the world life. Don't think I have any qualms about this one.

    Hahahaha! Too funny! Yay! I got a ricecake back! I really like this game, glad I gave it a go! The bunnies were super cute and I liked the general game mechanics in it. Navigating the inside of planets was a bit tricky, but aside from getting stuck for a while, entirely manageable!

    Really enjoyed it, was a very quirky game. You managed to achieve a lot in a very short span of time! The game feels finished!

    Pretty cool game! The movement was slight buggy sometimes though

    Really a lot content for a ld48 game. The music gets annoying quite fast (the hint by the bunnie on the second map seems visionary ;) ).
    The game mechanic works well and the game is quite challenging. The overall execution is very good.

    This was really great! I'm amazed how much content and how many features you managed to get into the game. Only problem was a couple of the levels were a bit too hard ;)

    Great stuff, well done!

    interesting take on the 2D Mario Galaxy idea! I liked the level designs and collecting stuff was fun. though the collisions got a little squirly at times.

    I would try it if you had a Web or OSX version.

    I would play this if there were a web version. You should consider doing a web version for future games.

    Unfortunately cannot play, don't have access to windows box.
    HTML5 :)

    Tifu says ...
    May 13, 2012 @ 3:07pm

    Yeah... I don't know HTML5. I don't know how to code in any web friendly thing, obviously if I did, then I would have...

    Much thanks to everyone who played the game and commented :)

    Nice job! I have things to do, so I couldn't beat the whole thing, but I saw enough to rate. The only planet jumping game I've played that still managed to make it feel original.
