August 23rd-26th 2013 :: Theme: 10 Seconds
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.

Pugnatorby Burhuc - Jam Entry
Pugnator is an action-adventure shmup where you'll have to face increasing dangers. Kill enemies, earn loot, destroy walls, and find the portal to the next level.
In addition to this, every 10 second, one or multiple (depending on the level) events will happen which will stay for the next 10 seconds. Those events can be buffs, debuffs or traps!
So watch your timer!
As I got moved from the compo to the jam, I still have some time to polish a bit, so I just did that quickly.
- Added sound when timer ends (=Event happens)
- Added indication which event is currently happenening
- Added regeneration when not shooting
- Small bug fixes
If the executable doesn't work, you need to use the installen, which will install the necessary frameworks (XNA) on your PC.
1. If the timer passes and you don't see any difference to before, then the event which happened may be a buff or debuff (damage up/down for example).
2. Some of the art assets in the game (Player character, bomb, explosions) are not made by myself but from here: https://github.com/Catacomb-Snatch/Catacomb-Snatch/. I did not have the time to create those by myself.
All the others though were made during the competition by myself.

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.
