I must say, I really didn't like this one at all. First of all, its way, WAY to random, and I keep getting stuck with blocks all around me, the window crashes randomly, its just not fun. Also, I'm sorry, but I don't see how this fits in with "You are the Villain", it seems more like you took a game from another idea and tried to force it into this one. Its pretty bad in my honest opinion, so if you wanted to make a longer game with a concept like this, it probably would be best to start over.

I realize this its pretty bad. But I did not get to the other game mechanic what I had in mined involved Ententes that Reset the map i did not get to this however. my original idea was for a "Evil master mind" to try to escape the self destructing layer. Also the idea was you swich into Box mode quickly and can dig yore way out. I am also a dyslexic 11th grader. With no formal programing expectants in Java so im pretty pretty prod of my self.

I couldn't figure out how the colors are supposed to work :/

With one of the colors I managed to shoot some red blocks, but mostly the game would go until i pressed "a" a few times and then crash in the black area. Need a lot more work (controls, some sort of goal)

As with others I had some difficulty understanding what the differences were. In one game I ended up in a large room with nowhere to go, and in another (when I was pressing random keys to see if anything happened) I popped through the level into the black space and got stuck.

However, having a close relative who is dyslexic, I am very impressed by your work, and would suggest that you continue with the game. Just because the time limit is up for the competition, doesn't mean the game should be stopped. Add the features you missed, learn from any issues you had while putting this together, and try again at the next competition, or one of the more related mini LDs.

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.
