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.

Cyborg Computing Jet Fightingby lulzfish_4 - 48 Hour Compo Entry
Use arrow keys to move, X to fire, P to pause / unpause, and R to restart if you die. These instructions are printed in the command line if you launch it from there, along with other things.
Shift moves you at half speed, this is not very useful.
The game is automatically paused before every level so you can see what enemies you'll be fighting.
In this game, the player is a blue jet fighter who must shoot the evil red aircraft.
The evil aircraft fire orange bullets that are mysteriously circle-shaped, and the player aircraft fires blue tracer rounds.
There is a tutorial, 2 levels, and a final boss.
The game requires GLEW, Lua 5.2, and Qt 4.8. (Although it may work with Qt 4.6) Box2D is also required, but I think on Debian it's linked in statically.
The Windows port ships with all necessary DLLs.

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.
