I could run it by downloading the folder and dragging the .swf file into my browser. Maybe posting the link to the .swf file directly will make it easier to run in the browser?

The game is a neat take on the theme. I had a little big of trouble choosing the right cannon to fire in the heat of battle, but once I got used to it I had more success taking out the other ship.

I was confused at first as to what ship was actually mine. There were a few mechanics that weren't clearly explained, and some even now I still am not sure about. The movement of the ship, once I understood who I was, felt nice.

It's good you put a controls menu in there - that's something we forgot to do for ours. I wasn't able to figure out which ship as was at the beginning, and until seeing the control screen it wasn't clear whether my input was doing anything or what. I'd say the main thing to work on is feedback ( )

There's room for improvement, but it runs and it's a function 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 ( 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.
