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.

Omnidirectional Chaosby Martze - 48 Hour Compo Entry
Omnidirectional Chaos is a game about survival.
You can move with WASD and arrow keys, and jump with W, Up, J or X. Givin' ya lots of options here.
Now that the judging is over, I have taken down the Competition version of the game, leaving only the latest and greatest version.
Jam Version 1.2:
Uploaded simultaneously with Compo Version 1.2.
Fixes jumping bug introduced in Compo Version 1.1.
Compo Version 1.2:
Uploaded a few hours after deadline, under the "last minute changes" rule.
Fixed jumping bug introduced in Compo Version 1.1. Also pulled in some of the title screen changes from Jam Version 1.1.
Jam Version 1.1:
Uploaded a few hours later.
Branched from Compo Version 1.1. Added music, improved title screen. Retains jumping bug from 1.1.
Compo Version 1.1:
Uploaded about an hour after deadline, containing more control options, under the "last minute changes" rule. Introduced bug where holding down the jump button would make you jump again immediately upon landing.
Compo Version 1.0:
Initial release. Uploaded before compo deadline.
The only difference between the Compo version and the Jam version is that the Jam version has music (and an option to turn it off.) Play either version you like, and then rate based on the Jam version, which has no music.
If your computer runs Windows: The Flash release and the Windows release of the game are mostly the same, with a few minor differences. The Windows version will likely have better performance. Also, there's an annoying graphical bug in the Flash version where the player character oscillates up and down when standing on certain platforms; this is harmless, but it may break your concentration if you are not expecting it. I can't figure out why the bug is occurring. I'll try to track it down and fix it in a future version of the game.

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.
