April 26th-29th 2013 :: Theme: Minimalism
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.

Just Shapesby Zanzlanz - Jam Entry
This weekend was a bit crazy. I went the the Newgrounds Pico Day Party, so I only had a few minutes of down time to actually work on the Ludum Dare game. I worked on the majority of it at the party!
I was tired enough from the drive that Minimalism came easily to me. I created the core of this game in practically a few minutes, but polished it off on Monday. I couldn't actually submit to the compo, for I wanted to make sure it was pretty solid for release. The Jam is okay though, since I didn't really want to share my sloppy source code anyway.
I made the music and some sfx in FL Studio, graphics in GIMP, coded in Flash AS3, and the rest of the sfx in BFXR.net. The only code I had to steal from an old project was the text renderer which I originally made for Mine Blocks 2.
I plan on making this full arcade game in the future. Of course, this isn't what it will end up looking like; think of this as an early prototype of my future plan. I'm thinking about selling it for a small amount on iOS, which will be awesome.
Hope you enjoy this relaxed, simple arcade game! Thanks and good luck in Ludum Dare!

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.
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.
