December 14th-17th 2012 :: Theme: You are the Villain
Angry Angus from Outer Space!!!by Xeke_Death - 48 Hour Compo Entry
Game is fully playable, but some features didn't get implemented... Oh well...
Scoring system works like this:
5 points per ship you destroy.
A LOT for destroying Earth.
You die, you get nothing.
Made in AS3 using Flixel, the link should work fine in your browser... I included the SWF file in a 7z file as well if you would rather download it.
EDIT: Just read at the bottom of the page that I can fix game breaking bugs such as this (I left out '.members' in one place..) so I have updated the swf with this change in it, and one that stopped the scrap from displaying all the graphics I made for it. There will still be issues if you destroy a lot of ships and don't collect the scrap though, because it never goes away if you don't.
RE: The frame rate dropping. I did not have any issues during development with the frame rate, but playing now I can see where it is coming from. So I can only assume that it was one of those additions I made in the last half an hour that didn't get proper testing. Seems that some sprites are not being removed from the render process when they should be. My apologies for this.
Edit: My assumption was correct, the explosion sprites were not actually being removed due to a last minute change. Fixed that locally, but I don't think I am allowed to update the version for judging.

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.
