Thanks! You should only press either left or right, not both at the same time ;)

This game is very addictive! (though it takes a little while to get started). Also the theme also fits rather remotely. Good work!

Given the speed of the player, and the slowness in turning, it was was nearly impossible to actually dodge the rocks or aim for gems. This made the beginning slow (it took about 6 or 7 runs before I got enough gems for the first upgrade. That said, I think this could be improved by going in one of two ways: one, scale the game so that the player can see further down in the level and aim appropriately, or two, change the game into more of a simulation where you don't control the missle directly, but are in charge of upgrading in order to make it to the end.

Web version isn't working for me (on Ubuntu), just get a screen filled with warning tape lines. Shame, looks interesting!

I agree with the above posters, fun but far too difficult, the window needs to be longer and move slightly slower.

Great work, although I got a little bit lost for the control at first.

The graphics fit the game so well and a fun challenge to attempt, however you run out of fuel way too quickly.

Game was lots of fun and it was really satisfying when I got to the end!

Nice concept, simple but satisfying gameplay.
Though after a few speed upgrades I found it too hard to control and eventually beat the game by having most of the upgrades and letting the drill go in a straight line with no input from me.

Given this speed, it needs no skill but luck ^^; Well polished!

The speed make it hard to aim for the gem and I actually noticed that the windows and web versions have different speeds...I dunno, maybe it's my pc fault :)
The graphics are great, they look like an old windows game from the '90s!

Upgrading speed at first and seeing the thing became uncontrollable, I restarted and zigzagged my way down in frustration as rocks kept hitting me exactly and gems were flying past I upped hull and fuel to 4 and then saved up, upgraded speed to 4 and just went straight down and won. I also got 1250 point just there so clearly my strategy was not needed.

Which is kind of my problem with this, there is no way to do the right thing. Things just happen and the only real investment is time. Not to say this is horrible but if I felt I had more control over what was going on I would have liked this better.

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.
