ReTurtleby Metatheos - 48 Hour Compo Entry
Simple game about taking a boss down in 10 seconds. Unfortunately you don't have the power to do it by yourself. You might do it if you help yourself, but it gets much easier with the help of you, you and you -- or does it? Just try not to shoot yourself, have fun, post your times and sorry for no sound.
Update: Now with post-mortem ( http://www.ludumdare.com/compo/2013/09/03/294584-returtle-postmortem/ ) and post-compo-version.
Update 2: The changes for the post-compo-version explained: http://www.ludumdare.com/compo/2013/09/13/returtle-revised/
To start click a pod, more are unlocked after starting through the previous ones.
WSAD to move
Left Mouse Button to shoot (Hint: not shooting makes the next shot stronger, the red ring shows charging state)
Right Mouse Button to pull up shield (Hint: some projectiles bounce off the shield depending on angle, bouncing increases their power)
* You can restart the current round by pressing r. I suggest to use this if you get hit really early in the fight. If you did considerable damage and don't understand the rules yet, just let the 10 seconds run out.
* The charged shot (wait one second after a shot to let the ring around the controlled player align again) does significantly more damage, try to use only that.

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.
