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.

Roboticaby recursor - 48 Hour Compo Entry
It's 2110 and robots have come along way for the good of humanity, but some have evolved into criminals. As head detective at the precinct, your job is to pick wanted robots out of a lineup. But wait! You have 10 seconds to catch the offenders before they defeat the federal lockout code routines and change their appearance.
-Look at the wanted card at the start of each level and click on it when you are ready to see the lineup.
-Once the card is displayed, the countdown timer begins, so don't spend too long memorizing it.
-Note the bottom of the card as it will tell you how many of that robot must be found.
-When you click on the wrong robot, it is counted as a miss and you can retry the level.
-The total time you spend along with the number of misses is shown along the bottom of the screen.
-Try to get as far as possible using the smallest amount of time with no misses.
-When the countdown timer reaches 3 seconds, a bell will sound every second until 0
-You can stop your game and continue it at the level you left it. Your misses and time spent will also be restored
-Pressing 'M' will toggle the music
-Difficulty starts out easy but gets more challenging as you progress (it starts getting really fun around level 30 or so)

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.
