Hi all!

This was our second Ludum Dare, and it was awesome again. Thanks a lot to the organizers.

This time we inspired our game in a real story. We hope you like it. :)

During World War II, the allies needed a guidance system that could target enemy warships. Professor B.F. Skinner devised a system that used trained pigeons to guide missiles.

But someone had to train them. And that’s you.

Dock and Cover – Video of levels 3 and 8

Hi there!

We have noticed that some of you had problems with levels 3 and 8. There is actually a increase in difficulty in those levels, especially in number 8. Actually, the game should probably have 50 levels, being the current 8, 9 and 10 numbers 48, 49 and 50. :)

We leave here a couple of videos showing how can you control your spacecraft if you want to dock it at levels 3 and 8, in case any of you is interested. Level 3 is actually pretty easy, you only have to follow one of the main rules: don’t screw the coordinates that you already have under control (on green), if you only have one of them in red, it means that you only need to correct that one, so go for it. In other words, on level 3 you only have to move to the left, to place you spacecraft perfectly oriented for docking.

Level 8 is something different, it is pretty tough -also because you don’t have much time-. But the rules you need to follow for every level -specially 8-9-10 – are always the same:

– If you start the level spinning, that control of that spin first of all, trying to stop the spaceship already facing the station.

– Try to place yourself in the ideal position in which you start levels 1-2 as soon as possible. In other words: try to fix all your coordinates as soon as you can. You can start slowly approaching the station, while carefully correcting the coordinates in the meantime.

– Be very gentle with the keys, take into account that every time you touch a key, you are accelerating in one of the directions (or angles), and you’ll have to counteract that sooner than later. So be sweet, you are in the space and you don’t want to get lost! :)
