I heavily recommand anyone who has a friend nearby to play this game, it's freakin fun. The only fighting game where you can play as the Ring versus Nazi Joker.

There's absolutely nothing to be said against the splatter effect! :)
Controls are a bit off, but it's rather fun when you have a friend to play against.

Apparently this was made for a French keyboard. On a regular keyboard the keys feel weird.

Maybe try to alt+shift (it switch keyboard language on mine)

Awesome game, this is probably the craziest game I played so far in LD48. BTW, how did you create those physical particles in GM?

@Faust For particles i just made object which is creeated 200 times with random direction and angle. There is 3 different particles types so 3 objects and like 600 particles.

Didn't really feel the controls with this one, and the gameplay was a bit basic for the most part. Did like the hook idea though!

Oh man, I wish I had someone here right now to try this. The controls are super weird but it's workable. I love the over-the-top particle death and the various characters with different projectiles. Didn't expect to play a fighter in this LD... especially one with this innovative hook mechanic. RAD STUFF!

I was trying to play with myself (madnesss!), controls are strange but the game is so hillarious and funny that I only can like it :D

Like the nod to Super Street Fighter in the logo. Don't have a 2nd player so can't really judge playability. Very nice graphical style and fitting BG music. Cool!

The controls are really awkward. Nice blood effect though!

This game looks crazy, I gotta save it for when a friend comes over.

Good job. Wish there was an AI.

I never ever see something like this. Moving with hooks and instakill? Awesome!

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.
