Run n Gun

by Xera - 48 Hour Compo Entry

Run with WASD.
Shoot your lasergun with left mouseclick.
Get to the exit!

For all the ones that only see the numbers "1, 2, 3":
That's the level select! Just click on a number and you will be taken to the level. Due to time constraints I had to shove in a crappy level select screen.

You shoot with left-click, in the direction of your mouse.

The red fields can be shot with the gun (the shots are piercing!) and will give you one more second on your timer.

The golden field is the exit. Get there before your timer runs out!

The Arrow around the player points to the finish.

Have fun!

Needs a better main menu, JayJay, that was the menu. A few more levels would have been nice

The aiming is weird. The UI/menu is not intuitive.

It was okay. The aiming was weird and I didn't understand the menu at first. More levels would have probably helped, but I'm sure this is a "spent all of my time coding" scenario, so I forgive. I thought the bigger red fields gave more points as a single object, so I was surprised to see they were just a bunch of them next to each other. :P

The UI (menu selection) is not good. I want to pass menu one by one !
In level 1 and 2, I don't need to shoot reds, so what's the point with them ?

Smooth animation and like the laser beam, btw.

A little bit short, but nice idea!
I felt the need of some audio feedback for killing red dots..

Yeah, the lack of a title screen, better level select and more levels are all due to the lack of time over the weekend, I'm sorry. I hope to do better next time!

Very good for a first entry. The menu and the arrow that points to the exit were a bit unintuitive, but the concept is fun

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.
