The Exterminator

by netgrind - 48 Hour Compo Entry

I had a friend do the audio, I came into the jam with the maze generator in a janky form and with the nape physics engine. The game should end and give you the chance to play a new level after you kill everything but this is a bit glitchy and sometimes seems to not notice everything is gone. If this is the case and you want to try a new map just refresh the page.

Really nice game. Well Done!

Is something supposed to happen after you kill everything? I guess not. Anyways, solid dynamics, the graphics and sound are good.

Was a bit choppy, and I was hoping something would happen after I destroyed all the enemies. Adding a timer would have improved this entry greatly.

I find it was difficult to control the vertical speed, and it isn't clear how it relates to the theme. I feel some minor tweaks to the player's speeds/accelerations would help. A background would greatly help its visual appeal too. Aside from that, great work!

Haha, jet packs are awesome. Robots with propels are too! :D

if you had a friend do the audio, it's actually a jam entry, but I'll let it go this time. But don't do it next time plz! :)

Also, I liked the detail in the player and the enemies (and the player's small bug legs), but in retrospect, the level itself could have some more touch

Really fun, though a bandit mask does not a villain make.

Very playable! Harks back to Spectrum titles "Jet Pack" and "Lunar Jetman" -- my muscle memory just kicked right in and I was off :-)
p.s. I've fixed my game since your review <nudge, nudge> :-D

The music and sfx was very nice. Maybe a little hard, or maybe its just me :)

Reminds me of Trainyard. I do really like the arcadey aspect of having to place track while it's running.

(Bugger, left that comment above in the wrong tab)

Looks like a good start you have here, though my netbook did chug a bit!

I really liked the minimap, as strange of a compliment as it is. It just felt...right. I really liked the concept of the game yet I find very little relation to the theme, which is fine considering I did the same thing. I encountered a peculiar glitch though, once I used the jetpack the sound effect would continue to play even after I stopped using it if I repeatedly spammed the up arrow. I don't know how reproducible it is, or if that was the only condition, I just know it happened three out of three times for me. Overall a solid entry.

I really licked the control system, but i think it need something like a storyline to fit the teme.. Even if the main charachter has a mask!

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.
