Evil Dragon

by rubna - 48 Hour Compo Entry

**Post your score in the comments! Let's see who's the true bad guy :D No lying though!**

AAAAND here it is! Get as many points as you can in this evil arcade game.

Backstory: You, Kraorga, awake once every thousand years and rain havoc upon the world. But now, the humans believe they can slay you: show them no mercy!

If I had had more time, I would have added sounds, more good guys trying to slay the evil dragon, added more than just cosmetic diversity between weapons (that's right, they don't do anything differently xD) and maybe polished it up a little, but oh well. Oh, and I would have included a goat, of course!

Have fun and Ludum Dare forever!

It gets hard really fast, if you don't kill the first ones fast enought.

But was kinda fun anyways. And the looks of the enemies are cool.

This has some really cool ideas in it. I love the dragon's movement and how he "rolls" himself around. Very cool. Nice graphics as well.

Gets hard real quick, yep. Would love to see a more polished version.

very fun! I really liked the art and dragon's motion. Definitely a hard game, but it does what it has to do.

I love the character art and the dragon movement. The difficulty curve seems like it shouldn't ramp up so quickly. I didn't really feel like I had a chance after a while. Cool game!

Also, changing weapons with the scroll wheel causes my browser to scroll the page.

Simple control, fun but hard game.

Nice concept :) I really loved the style of the characters and the HUD! The gameplay is interesting but a little slow and it gets difficult really fast :3 Also, when I use the scrolling wheel in my browser (FF) it also scrolls the page :/

Really liked the dragon animation. Too difficult for me but lots of potential.

Love the graphics (Im a sucker for retro pixely look)!
Really nice mechanics as well, but as previous comments have stated, gets really hard quite fast.

Nice one overall!

The graphics fit the game really well, but it gets very difficult very early. Still plenty fun.

I loved the graphics and the gameplay! However the movement felt a little clunky and slow but that may be my browser, good try!

Only 260 on trackpad but I doubt it'd be easier even with a mouse. The only thing that irked me (though it was a design decision rather than a bug) was to shoot at something you had to be moving at them but you couldn't get off enough shots to really clear waves. Amazing graphics and overall it ran smoothly, nice job.

A little bit on the hard side. Sound either wasn't working or wasn't there. I like it a lot though. Maybe a polished version could be released?

This is great! Love the controls, they make the entire game.

Thanks to everyone who played and rated my game! I did a little better in all departments than last LD, and next one I'll do even better. Thanks for the feedback, sorry there was no sound :[. I'll try and manage my time better next time.

Until next LD!

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.
