Roket

by Ionstorm - 48 Hour Compo Entry

This is my first Ludum dare entry.

You play as a contractor hired out by walmart to
destroy hospitals and orphanages for 'developing'.
Use your wit and skill with angles to guid your
missiles to blow those buildings into the sky!

The instructions are in the txt file - but this video shows it better.

How do you launch the game ?
And your video is private

You double click on the Jar called Roket it takes a while to load - I recommend you turn down you audio ;) I forgot to turn it down.

Wish the controls were displayed onscreen (or even better, had buttons). I had to keep alt+tabbing back and forth to figure out how to do anything. Seems like a pretty simple physics sim, otherwise. The "walmart" angle is pretty thin.

The theme wasn't really there in the game. Other than that, the controls were confusing. Your video showed the missile swinging back to hit the structures, but I really can't figure out how to do that.

I tried, but really struggled to get anywhere with this game. It's a shame, because it looks like you were trying to do something quite interesting!

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.

MORE TIPS AND DETAILS AT THE BOTTOM OF THIS PAGE

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 (http://mysite.com/mygame.zip) 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.
