This is my first time making games on Ludum Dare,  and I want to say that this is really great competition. Love the community here, great people making great games 😀

So this is my finished game:

Enneadeca

Enneadeca

Light up the world by passing all its points without hitting death ( red circles ). Death is moving by random, as in real life.
By passing already lit point, you put it out.
Movement is 6-way directions:
Q W E
\ | /
/ | \
A S D
Power is SPACE, in which that point can not be put out.

Score is determined on number of light points, remaining powers and time spent.
Formula is:
(LIGNT_POINTS – 1) * 100
IF( LIGNT_POINTS > 3) ADD (REMAINING_POWERS * 250)
IF( VICTORY AND TIME_SPENT < 60s ) ADD ( (60s – TIME_SPENT) * 30 )

I used HTML5 canvas as game environment, and since wanted to keep it minimalistic,
wrote simple engine for game (no sprites, particles, and stuff).
jQuery – http://jquery.com/
tween.js – https://github.com/sole/tween.js/
Music loop is downloaded from http://www.looperman.com/loops?gid=21
No graphics :)

Enjoy it here :)
