Super Crate Box :)

Unfortunately you fell for the ZX combo, which is unplayable on german layout (try for yourself, use y and x). And I can't change to english layout since you made it fullscreen :(

This kills the gameplay fun for me, sorry.

Pretty good game. I liked the graphics and the different weapons, the best one is the SMG. But, I feel it's too easy, just go to the first platform and shoot, maybe with a different level layout or with a bullet limit it would be more challenging and fun :) Anyway, good work!

@Endurion: I'm sorry that you couldn't play due to the game's controls. I find ZX to be the most comfortable two-button layout on my English keyboard, so I usually stick to that, but I didn't realize how much of an issue it could be. And as for fullscreen, you can press F4 to make it windowed.

@mrcdk: Thanks for the kind words! I'm personally a big fan of the Death Ray, myself! ;) It is pretty easy, that's true. I wanted to make an enemy that could bypass that strategy so you'd stay on your toes, but I ran out of time. Thanks again!

Loved the art-style! Unfortunelty I found that if I stood on the second platform and held the fire button I was unbeatable - especially with the rocket launcher. Would it have gotten more difficult as it progressed?

Nice graphics, hoped for a bit more interesting combat but good game.

Simple form but very playable game!

Nice visuals and the extra weapons are cool, but the gameplay itself is rather lacking and too straightforward. However, I don't see it taking much to turn this up a couple levels; some different stages and couple new enemy types could go a long way. Even so, it's a nice little 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.
