Slow cowboy

by lun - 48 Hour Compo Entry

Hello, this is the game about slow cowboy. He have a gun with long time of reload. But! Evil aliens trying to emigrate to his farm. You must stop them!

Just go down a little bit and you will find them.

This is my second solo Ludum Dare. And first project with Unity3d.

I used this stuff:

Art: PagePixel (

Controls: arrows and Ctrl.

The worst cowboy. I liked the idea, hit detection was a bit rough. Was he supposed to turn so slowly, it seemed to take forever for the game to realize that I want him to change direction.

The hit detection seems way off; I get killed by aliens when they aren't very close to me. It would also be nice to have a visible indication of the level borders instead of just bumping into an invisible wall. But it's a good start, and I like the concept of being the slowest gun in the west. :-)

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 ( 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.
