impossible odds

by dreadofmondays - Jam Entry

My first LD48 entry resulted in this strange creation.
The idea is to have a bullet-hell shooter with basic graphics and mouse control. It might be a bit buggy, but we'll see how it goes! :O
I had planned for it to head into the compo, but in the end the music wasn't made by me and I probably have strayed from the theme a bit. I don't mind - I'm unlikely to win anyway!
I just hope you have fun with it! Try and reach stage 30!

I love the particles (it's look like a fireworks).

PS : it's more easy we you understand the command

I may be biased because of how much I like the genre, but this was a lot of fun to play~ The cores and teleporting mechanics are things I haven't really seen before, and they were pretty good ideas. The difficulty curve's a bit steep, but it's pretty satisfying when you're able to get further (I only got to around stage 10;;). Considering the theme, the particles are a bit flashy, but they're well used in any case. Very nice work overall~

Nice visual style with some interesting mechanical twists.
I'm not a shmup fan and I liked it!

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.
