Core 10by Towanime - Jam Entry
Core 10 is a stategy game where you get to protect the ultimate core of life using different kinds of shields, the more shields you set the more level and AP you get!
How to play
You begin the game with an unprotected Core, it is up to you which side protect first. Move the shield type selecion with A or D then click the empty slot on the screen.
A word on AP, every time you set a shield you will lose AP for that turn, you will need to wait to the next one in order to recover all of your spent points.
Velocity matters, this an important part of the game, the enemy will be able to attack you for the same amount of seconds you spent on your turn! That means if you wait the whole 10 seconds on your turn then the enemy will get 10 seconds to attack you (Ouch!) Press the space bar to finish your turn as soon as you set your shields and take advantage of the rules.
To summarize, the keys are:
A: Move left on the shield selection area
D: Move right on the shield selection area
Space: Finish your turn (Remember the sooner you finish your turn the better!)
P: Pause the game
R(While the game is paused): Restart the game
Click on an empty slot to set the selected shield type
This was our first Ludum Dare experience and it was very good! We've learned a lot, and definetely will take part in the next one. We are two people working on the code and assets, we are also Missing Dragonfly Studio (Yes, another indie game developer team) we are currently working on an amazing game called Beat Beat Shooter that combines rhythm and shoot 'em up mechanics, this a short break but it was worth it.
About the Music
Our dear friend Kevin Balke (a.k.a V-axys) gave us permission to use the great track you heard in the game, for more details check the in-game credits!

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.
