Left Alone

by Static_boy123 - 48 Hour Compo Entry

Try to beat the clock and kill all of your enemies before the time runs out! I know the game sucks but it was my first game ever, so try not to discourage me too much!:P

Well, it's playable, and that's more than some guys here can walk away with. And you bothered with making some art, even gun flash. Well done for your first effort.

Short and sweet! Great effort for your first game ever! (I know because this LD was also my first game ever!)

Pretty harsh being able to lose while you're reading the intro text...

Yeah I noticed that after I released, I will be giving a new link very soon.

Not bad for your first LD. Welcome to the compo, Static_boy123. I hope you learned quite a bit from the compo so you can really take it to the next level next time. :)

Lanched it 3 times to read all the introduction but I still don't understand how to kill my opponent?

On the good side, congrats on completing your game! You might also want to make a postmortem and rate some of the games made by other people.

On the bad side, why do you need an installer for such a small game? It raises all sorts of red flags, and will make people skip your game :-(

I made it in XNA and that is how you use an XNA game, installer.

No, you don't need an installer for XNA! Do a Release build and the "Release" folder will contain the full game. Just zip and upload that. All those installers are quite annoying. Sure, the installer makes sure that XNA and .Net are installed, but most people got them already anyway.

Okay I will do that next time. I have updated the code though so I can't give a new download.

A good base for a game. My only real recommendation would be to not use an installer (yet this has already been addressed). For a first time entry, however, this is fairly decent and I've seen worse.
It was good to see a post-mortem as well.

Will do! I guess people really hate installers.I am already looking to enhance my coding skills, so next LD you guys will have animations!!!!!!!!!!!!!!! :Clap:
