One Legged Jonny started from my second entry for Ludum Dare. Ludum Dare is a competition that happens 3 times a year where your goal is to make a game in 48 hours.
The theme was “You Only Get One” (YOGO). I personally think my entry wasn’t that great. All there was was a single turret that would lock you on target and shoot out missiles. For the YOGO theme I gave the main character just one leg. And you essentially only have one life, one strike from an enemy and you’re dead. You can click the image above to see my entry.
Instructions are in the pause menu.
The entry wasn’t a full game and there wasn’t a goal. Even after Ludum Dare when I kept working on it I still couldn’t develop a goal for the game. Therefore, I left One Legged Jonny on the side for a little bit. That’s when I participated in LD29 and then soon after finished Thermophobia. I got into a really good habit of adding more ‘juice’ this time. I have a short story at the beginning, instructions in game, options, highscores, and more music.
One Legged Jonny is an endless shoot em up game. Kill and survive for score. Shoot turrets, avoid missiles, avoid pikes, kill dragonflies, watch out for lasers and laser beams, go in slow motion, pick up a shield, get a railgun, and don’t get caught in the waterfall! (In my opinion, this is my best game yet) Enjoy c:
