soooo not in theme :D You take away points for using the laser? Ill take away points for every sentence in the instructions for a "minimalistic" game.

But. love the tune, and hey, it works just great! This was your first time, right? You will do excellent with a more suitable and less restrictive theme!

Hey dude! Yeah it does take away points from using laser, so you have to avoid shooting...yeah I had a hard time understanding the real gist of it...at first I thought it would be something simplistic and colorful, so I made something simple and fun to play, then I considered that "Minimalism" could be something about having the minimum of features, or avoiding to do some others...Yeah that was my very first Ludum Dare entry! I hope I can do better next time, also hoping to a better theme! Thank you for the feedback dude!

Awesome job Brunodev! You're improving so much it's insane! Keep up the amazing work. I really like your humorous style and creative ideas.
Since there's minimal controls, and simple rules, I think minimalism fits with it well. Good luck sir!

Interesting mechanic with the laser detracting from your score, but overall felt a little cheap when it killed you as the collisions were not very well done

Yeah thanks for your review! I couldn't really tweak the collision detection since this was my first entry and I was very anxious and had to rush alot. Even lost some features I was planning on adding..

Cool idea, collision detection was not so good, still pretty fun.

euwaku I really had a hard time with the theme. Still, in my conception minimalism could mean some things: one of them is something simple and colorful. So I tried to make something colorful and very simple to play with only 2 buttons. It could also mean that you have to economize the a certain feature, which I tried to make with the laser add. Its my first submission and I'm even kind of happy with it =). I hope the next theme is less restrictive.

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.
