Spelunkledunk© (GameSalad is Amazing)

Just wanted to show off a humble game that I literally made in 5 hours (including making graphics and sound). I'm just so impressed with what can be done quickly in GameSalad, so a big thanks goes out to Gendai.

This game shows off the quality of free demos available here in the forums (JCFord's multiple layers of parallax, Orbz's rope, FireMapleGames' flashlight) so another big thanks goes out to everyone in the forum.



PS. I left out the player death, so you can see the parallax (when the player's flashlight mask falls too.)

    looks awesome...love the parallax scrolling (maybe a little jumpy at the back).

    Nice gameplay mechanics though...also like the darkness.

    Forgot to mention that the longer you play, the faster the decent becomes.

    I usually don't comment on games (because I don't know anything about them) but this is interesting because it reminds me of the Circus! Except that the acrobat seems to be a teddy bear :)

    I think I dreamt something like this where I was falling without end ....

    You definitely have something there :)

    Love the look of this.

    What I've found is that the name of a game is really important.

    Imagine someone trying to recommend this game to a friend at a party. Is the name easy to remember? Is it easy to spell?

    Just some thoughts. Really liking the actual game though!

    QS :D

    Names are a double bladed axe, my friend. If it's funky, they are probably more likely to remember it. If they can't spell it... go back to school... jk Any suggestions for a better name? My original was "Cave Descender©".

    I kinda' like the name, it actually initially caught my attention to look at the thread.

    Seriously though, nice work! Looks amazing!

    Thanks again, everyone.

    Maybe "Cave Panic", because while you are guaranteed to have 3 to 4 rocks to grab on the screen at once, they aren't always where you need them and it might just be the one rock whose brightness is turned down so its harder to see... hence, panic.

    *edit* I kinda feel like Panic is already used a lot though...
