Don't Leave our Home! - EdiiKnorand - 48 Hour Compo Entry

I made a shmup where the world is part of game. It was written in and uses SDL and has some bugs.

Is it at all possible to make a Windows release? I'm afraid many people won't play it otherwise :(

you should have compressed the source in a folder with a precompiled executable... anyway i liked the idea of leaving and grabbing the world

you really need to create .exe and maybe even files for OSX, or else only linux users can rate your entry :/

I fixed the crashbugs and made a Windows-version and put it here: http://dl.dropbox.com/u/1287557/dontleave.zip

I have not modified anything about the gameplay itself.

I've chosen to rate the entry in that state, so he can at least get some feedback on it.


Feedback;

This game is freaking hard, still has quite a few bugs - but I believe you've gotten a fair amount of practice out of it anyway. Keep coding!

Just to prove a point about the work I did, the patches are here: https://github.com/epc09/ld23/pull/1/files

Thanks Kvisle for the port. Game itself was interesting. I like how you could detach from the planet. Controls seemed a bit sluggish to me. Also, perhaps instead of dying, just reduce health? And/or give a cooldown time? I kept getting hit, respawning, and instantly dying again. Anyway, good effort, and I'd love to see the idea expanded on. Thanks!

Yeah, thanks to Kvisle for the port!

As for the game, I like the base mechanics. Death seemed a little harsh, so maybe some health would be good or a short breather of some kind. Also I'd occasionally get in a state where I couldn't shoot - maybe because I just died? Not sure. Throw in some sound, music, and a little tuning and I think you've got a fun side-scrolling shooter.

Good concept, would have worked wonders in a longer, more balanced game. Maybe if the enemies didn't aim for the planet while it's abandoned it would be a little bit easier?
