Version 1.1 Beta

by dante
First published on 11th September, 2015

Blast-mining has made mining for diamonds dangerous! Collect the diamonds on the floor while dodging the hazardous falling rocks!

Updated difficulty scaling - A new leader has been created to be fair to the players that recorded high scores previously.

Controls
Tap, click, or press SPACE to change direction

Instructions

  • Avoid the falling rocks
  • Collect the diamonds to score a point
  • Drop the diamonds into the mine cart for bonus points
  • The more diamonds you put into the mine carts the bigger the bonus!
  • You can only carry 3 diamonds at time

REMEMBER - You can only carry 3 diamonds at a time so make sure to drop them off in the mine carts to free up your hands again!

    My first game submitted to the Arcade! :)

    For some reason the Instructions aren't being displayed... Click, or touch, or press the SPACE key to change directions to dodge the falling rocks - remember to place the diamonds in the mine carts for extra bonus points ;)

    Thank you StefanSava, for your feedback! Yeah... I think I've notched up the difficulty thinking it was too easy - hehe

    I will look into dialling that back, though I'd like to get a 'feel' from other players before overdoing it and making it too easy!

    Sorry, again, that your score didn't get submitted :(

    I've found the offending condition/action and fixed it - Scores seem to be submitting properly now.

    Thanks for flagging the problem :D

    Thank you for your feedback 😊

    I've been getting requests, to make it a touch less difficult, quite a bit. But instead of making it easier, I'll build in a difficulty scaling system that will ease players in gently 😉
    Will aim to build that in tomorrow!

    Thanks for you feedback!

    There are actually further stages I have planned for this game. Sadly I didn't have the capacity or time to build them for the game jam - so I worked and built a game more realistic to the time I had :)

    Once the competition is over, I'll continue to develop the game and add the other stages and features - I would share my Trello board, but I don't want to give any spoilers ;)

    Great game for a quick break. Of course, as others already stated as well, it doesn't have a whole lot of features to keep me hooked for hours on end. But the way I see it, that's not the purpose of the game anyway.

    I especially loved the graphics. And yes, the game is difficult to master, but that's actually what kept me trying more than 12 times :)

    I'll be looking forward to you updating the game in the future to add more features to it.

    I've had fun with this game. My biggest complaint is probably that it starts off a little too hard. I also think that you should be able to start the game with the spacebar since you can have him change direction with it. If you have the time; please leave a comment on my game "Clumsy Chris and The Cryptic Cave", and tell me what you think of it. Thanks.
