***Update: I don't want to clutter this page with post-compo information, so please read about the improvements to the post-compo version here:
Thank you again for all the feedback!***
Here's my game, now with SOUND!
The game is called "Robot Rodeo". The theme made me think of a rodeo where the rider has to stay on the bull for 8 seconds. In this game, you upgrade a robot and send it into an arena. The arena is littered with traps which will damage the robot.
After every match in the arena, the robot will be repaired back to maximum health. You will receive a certain amount of money for every second the robot survived in the arena.
If the robot lasts the full 10 seconds, you win! If you want, you can keep going at a higher difficulty. That means more traps in the arena!
I wanted to set up some kind of leader board so people could compete for higher scores, but my web programming knowledge isn't up to the task.
I am currently working on improving and expanding the upgrades available for your robot. Let me know if you have any suggestions!
1. *FIXED* You have to click "Close" twice on upgrade windows.
2. Some parts of the buttons don't respond to clicks.
3. *FIXED* Strange graphical errors.
4. *FIXED* The "Heat Shield" upgrade doesn't work.
I greatly appreciate your feedback! Please let me know if you see any bugs or have any gameplay suggestions.

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.
