Earth Defenderby Hellequin - Jam Entry
Earth Defender, an Helkegames production for Ludum Dare 26!
You play as the first space division commander, a hero who must save the world from an alien invasion. You are the only one who can defeat them and save the world.
"In the year 2592 aliens are going to invade the earth. Defeat them and save the world"
Choose between three different levels of difficulty: Easy, Medium and Hard (if you want a real challenge choose the Hard level). But be careful, don't waste shots, you have LIMITED AMMO proportional to the level of difficulty!
This game has it all! Minimalistic music, graphic and gameplay, a simple but exciting story, a retro pixel art and a bizarre EASTER EGG inspired by the POTATO!
So what are you still doing here? Play it now and save the world!!
P.S. Suggestions to display the Easter Egg: it will appear only in the Medium level and only if you win it!
Then in the "You Won" screen press a "key" ("P" as Potato ^.^) to display it!
Notice that Earth Defender has got Potato! (It's the Easter Egg).
For best results try to play the game with your browser closed!
Download the zip files, extract them, open the README file for the instructions and then you are ready to play, just click twice on Earth_Defender.jar!
HAVE FUN WITH EARTH DEFENDER!

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.
