Dr.Bad's Doomsday Rocket!

by bigfatgamer - 48 Hour Compo Entry

Actually made it in about 12 hours. Have a kid, so time is limited. Lots of fun to crank one out, but no fancy art or sounds in time.

I found it quite difficult to know which way the crates and heroes would go at first. Then once I'd figured that out, everything happened quite quickly. Cool puzzle idea, but I found it a little too difficult.

Great puzzler concept. It seems to be nondeterministic where things will move, though, which makes it difficult to plan ahead. Also the walls are a bit hard to see at first, and the inability to rotate counterclockwise adds to the difficulty. But if you have some more time to address these things, there's quite a good game here.

Good concept.
But the game itself is a bit slow (and behaves weird sometimes too) though.

I like the idea of rotating tiles in order to create path.
However I didn't find a way to get rid of the heroes.

IMPORTANT NOTE: If you want to place in the final results, you NEED votes. The easiest way to get votes is by rating other games. Judging lasts for 3 weeks following the end of Ludum Dare. For best effect, rate 20 games as soon as possible. Rating more games is encouraged.


REMEMBER: The “Theme” category is only for the main theme (You are the Villain). Don’t penalize for not using Goats.

TEAMS: Teams entering the Jam should pick a single representative to submit your game, or create a team specific account you can share. We currently do not support Team Voting, but sharing an account and together playing and rating games is acceptable.

NOT LOGGED IN?: If you get a message about not being logged in, even though you are, it’s because your web browser cached the non-logged in page. You can fix this by either refreshing your cache or clearing your cache. CTRL+F5 in many browsers. Chrome is a bit more work. Press F12 to enable Developer Mode, then you can right click on the refresh button and select “Empty Cache and Hard Reload”. This option is unavailable if you are not in Developer Mode.

We’ve identified the problem, and should have the page caching bugs fixed for next Ludum Dare.

PORTS: Ports to other platforms can be done after the deadline. That said, the sooner you finish your port, the sooner people can play your game, improving your chances of placing in the final results. For best results, provide a Web version of your game, or a Windows version with no dependencies. Also be sure to rate about 20 games to improve your visibility.

MY GAME DOESN’T SHOW UP: If you can’t find your game, it’s usually because the URL to your downloads are missing ‘http://‘. Fix your URLs ( and you will show up.

MY GAME CRASHES, IS UNBEATABLE, OR I MADE A TYPO: We allow you to fix crash or win condition bugs after the deadline (in a sense, like “porting” to support more players). We also allow “typo” bugs. I.e. A true that should have been a false, a word that should have been a different word, very tiny changes that you would have caught if you had more sleep. We leave this open to interpretation, but generally speaking your game should be identical to the game you submitted. No new features, just things you messed up last minute. Typos.
