My first ever entry to Ludum Dare. Just recently started making games.

In this game, an explosion happens every 10 seconds and the player must evade it.

Doesn't run on my Windows 7 machine. It saces libgcc_s_dw2-1.dll is missing

Quite a simple game, but fun and challenging nonetheless.

I had to compile it from source (on Linux), and was confused to see that it pulls in a lot of SDL sound stuff, although I could not hear any sound. Am I missing something?

@Zerkruemler I am guessing it was compiled with MinGW, in which case the author needs to either compile with the '-static' flag, or provide the dlls as a download. In the meantime, you could try downloading MinGW and copying the specific ones you need.

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.
