by DanteZack93 - 48 Hour Compo Entry

This is my first Ludum Dare and i had lots of fun doing this game, i used Game Maker for the first time.
Hope you enjoy it ^^


In this game, you have to survive for 10 seconds. If you manage to survive the level will change and will be harder, if you want to win you have to survive the three levels available.
You are the little triangle and will die in just 1 one shot, avoid the circles and the squares! You have to kill at least something every 2 seconds if you don't want to lose.

On the left you there is a Dec counter, it's a timer about how long you survived in the level.

On the right there is a Bin counter, it's a timer and it last 2 seconds, you will see it in binary so:
0 = 00
1 = 01
2 = 10

The bin counter should not be 10->2 seconds because you will lose, to restart the timer just kill something.

To move use WASD and to shoot use the mouse :)

Not a bad game here. Quite difficult though, or maybe I'm just bad at it. :)

Weird, this time Google didn't want me to register.

Nice little game, nothing ground breaking though. Death does come fast ;)

Crashed on exit.

Hardy hardy hard.. Tried to win gazillion times it is not for me I guess ;) Good entry anyways. You should change download provider if you want to get more ratings (IMO). Best of luck with ratings!

Challenging, but not very varied levels. Smooth controls though, and some nice, fast-paced gameplay!

A decent arena shooter. Feel like the collision detection could be a bit more forgiving though; quite a few times I died when I thought I'd just scraped past an enemy.

This is pretty hard! Clever use of the 10 sec in binary :)

i'm glad you guys like it ^^
this is my first game for the Ludum dare and my first game with Game Maker too so i didn't expect to make something that could be actually enjoyable :D

Whoa it's hard >_< But feels very complete, well done!

The graphics could be better as they are quite harsh when seen all together. It would also be nice to have the different enemies have different behaviors, instead of just chasing you.

I like the game overall though. It's simple and could do with more but a very good first effort.

Okay game, but the download was a bit of a hassle :P

A nice little game, although quite hard. Almost managed to finish the third level, but died anyway :-( Congratulations!
Maybe doing a smoother transition from one level to another would be helpful ; also, the player does not continue shooting even it it was shooting before changing levels. That made me die a lot of time.

The game felt more like a puzzle game because of the difficulty. I was not able to finish map two and it was a bit annoying to do the first one over and over again when I had already found the solution. A "try again" button would have been nice.

Hard game .... but I like hard games ... but you could turn it down a notch

Really nice, really fast paced and really hard. Pretty much forces you to quickly become the same skill level as the developer but was still pretty enjoyable. Maybe let the player have some rest, and make the current version some sort of hard mode or something. Other than that, nice job.

I agree with Kurisu and Jellycakes.

I really liked the music at first but the game is so hard and you die so fast that you're constantly hearing the level one and menu music starting one after the other, and it makes them get old.

The gameplay is too hard but it's addictive and fun at the core. Unfortunately, for me, the game crashes. Twice, each time after a few minutes of play.

@Jedi it's strange, no one told me about crashes so i tough it was pretty rock solid. Now it's kind of too late to fix it, but i'd like to know what OS are you using and your pc specs :)

Nice and unique mood. Love the art style!

Yeah, sorry, I should have told you before.
The weirdest thing about my system is that I'm running Windows server 2008 (it's kinda vista-y, and I'd get rid of it if I could).
Also I have 8g Ram, intel chipset and nvidia card.

Buuut if I had to guess, other testers may just not have played it enough. I spend a lot more time than average on each game I play. I was able to reproduce the problem a third time, but only by dying and restarting a bunch on purpose. When it happens, it happens right after I die.

...And I'm just telling you for academic sake. Don't go fixing it just for my sake :P

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.
