Aliens on a School Day?

Nobody can tell what exactly would happen in a day. Who knows, maybe the aliens will suddenly arrive to invade the planet. In this cute little game, you will witness an unusual event on a school day. A little girl was able to survive the invasion but that doesn’t mean she is already safe. Aliens will try their best to abduct her so you must help this poor little girl to fight for her life. Interestingly, you managed to find a way to escape and that is by going underground. The aliens’ laser, however, can still penetrate under so you must find an effective way to evade them and survive. If you think you can survive this challenge, then feel free to play this game and see how far or how deep you can go!

The mechanics of the game are very simple yet surprisingly tricky and challenging. The player is strongly encouraged to exert the best of his visual reflexes and to show off the best of his eye and hand coordination to maximize his chances of surviving. In this kind of platformer game, you are encouraged to go down by stepping on the platforms below but you must also take advantage of the platforms above since they can be your tool to protect you from the laser. It is very important to note that the laser will blast for every ten seconds. Therefore, you only have ten second to find a safe spot before the laser arrives. The laser can only penetrate through holes.

Another challenge that you will encounter ahead are the pesky moles. The moles are only capable of moving back and forth in their respective platforms but once you are detected by them, they will try their best to push you on the dangerous spot. You can kill them right away by stomping them but you must do it very quick before the laser strikes. Occasionally you will encounter platforms with hanging lanterns on them, these lanterns will serve as your checkpoints. Take note that once you got hit by the laser, the game is automatically over and you have no option but to start the game back from the very beginning unless, you were able to stand on a platform with lanterns on them. This will serve as your respawn point. The game is not being scored but the depth level will be recorded so basically, the deeper the distance you have reached the better the remarks you will get. The game, however, is only made on a limited time (submitted as a Ludum Dare Entry) but it has so much potential and it could actually grow as addictive mobile app. It was like a revert version of “Icy Jump”! Good luck and have fun!
