Mine Escape is an arcade game I built in 50 hours to learn libgdx, enjoy! Mine Escape is a 2D infinite runner that relies on sharp reflexes and an ability to stay calm! Do you have what it takes to get Bob as far as possible? * Super Simple - Only two controls, you'll pick it up in no time! * Always a challenge - the further you go, the faster it gets! * Fun, bright graphics! * Share a screenshot of your score with friends! You have to help Bob escape the collapsing mine! Line Bob up with the tunnel by tapping on the left and right sides of the screen, then Bob will run forward when the passage behind him collapses. Don't get trapped in a dead-end!

This year I took part in the 2014 Global Game Jam, my first game jam, and I thought it was fantastic! In the weeks after, I set myself a dual challenge:

1. Build a simple game to learn Libgdx
2. Design, build and publish the game in 50 hours of development time.

Over the next month, I got the game finished, but I *just* went over on time, finishing in 54 hours. (oops)

But here is the result, Mine Escape! A simple 2D infinite runner that relies on sharp reflexes and an ability to stay calm when things get quick!

The aim was to develop a simple little time waster with a bit of challenge to it, learn libgdx, and practice my vector art skills.

A link to the Play Store listing is available on the game page, along with a .jar download for the Windows build!
