Please separate your downloads (game, source, timelapse).

This game is okay. It's Asteroids, with goats.

If you start moving, you move way too fast and it's hard to control. I ended up staying in the starting position.

If you spam fire, you don't hear the fire sound anymore. If you go to the next level, there is a chance that a goat will spawn on top of you, and you die instantly.

In addition to Marco's critiques:
1. Next time, put the files in a folder and zip the folder. Saves me from making a folder for your game. Minor complaint.
2. The game freezes for a solid 1.5 seconds every time I press Space to fire.

Just a note, you might have missed this from the rules since it's your first time, but for the 48 Compo entries, all assets need to be created completely by you within the 2 day time frame. This means that the photographs of goats you pulled from the internet should not have been used.

Other than that, a pretty solid asteroids clone, although the forward impulse is a bit too fast. I taps up and shot off really fast making it really difficult to then dodge the goats. I would have liked a slower acceleration.

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.
