Stage Fight

by Jcorp101 - Jam Entry

Hello! This is the first time we've done a game jam here, and boy was it close! 7 minutes left as of writing this. First game in Unity too, so apologies for any problems that may be caused from using it :P

CONTROLS (not explained in game because of time):

A/D -> Move left and right
Space -> Jump
Left/Right arrows -> Shoot left or right
Up/Down arrows combined with the above -> Shoot at an angle

Later levels will require more powerful weapons. When you complete a certain number of kills in a level, you get money. These can buy better guns (some of which explode!)

The game is mathematically finishable, but playtests had to be cut short. Hey, take it as a challenge!

Reset your high scores, money, level unlocks and inventory by hitting the Reset Game button in the main menu.

There are high scores per level, and all relevant data is shown at the top of the screen when you play a level.

Art done by the wonderfully-capable-of-doing-art LordWaffle.

Maybe you need more encouragement to play this game? You play as a girl on a stage shooting Vikings. If you want anything else then I am literally speechless.

A very cool style (I love the stage setting), though the difficulty of the stages mounts faster than the rate you get better guns, so it's a tad grindy.

i like the way the scenery was composed. the game was hella fast though! a good challenge, would probably handle amazingly on a gamepad.

I totally agree about the gamepad. It would be the missing link between that fun concept and a cool gameplay.

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.
