@daniel2357 Thanks! I have already begun revamping the logic/code to allow for more levels. I'm improving the graphics and working on power ups, more enemies and bosses! I want to see how far I can take it :)

Graphics fit the theme nicely. Sound effects are a bit loud (had to turn down Windows volume quite a bit). Good work and thanks for sharing!

Nice game, pretty fun! Wish there were a few more stages though.

Nice graphics, ok gameplay. I think the player ship was way to big, hard to avoid enemy bullets.

@skoggy I agree. The #1GAM version of this I'm working on a smaller ship.

Nice one, although I found myself sending sine-waves of death at my enemies, the shooting could do with some kind of limit.

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.
