Trigger Man

by FatBasic - 48 Hour Compo Entry

Somebody has to pull the trigger.
You play as a sniper who has 10 seconds to find his target or he gets terminated.
As you complete the missions, the game gets harder by adding more innocent civilians, so the target will be harder to spot.
How far can you get?

I didn't get very far, but I like it. I kind of wish you'd have WASD for zooming in as well though, being right handed and only having a MacBook touchpad it was a bit tough to reach for the arrow keys. But you got the little thing right I'd say; the stress of the timer combined with the different facial features does make for a fun game.

Man, the game is awesome. You could add more stuff, like dogs, trees, and whatnot.

Good game! About level 7 is where I failed as there is a lot of green people! :P
Great Game but the aiming took me a bit to get used to as it was a bit sensitive! :P

A sniper-style game works well with the theme, and I like the cute, angry lookin' guys for targets. It's a bit of a shame you didn't have time to cook up some death animations (it feels a little abrupt when the mission ends) but still a fun game. Look forward to the expanded version!

Fun game. Really liked using the mouse-wheel to zoom, just felt really seamless and cool. So annoying when the guys walked close to the tower, out of my view, haha

Very cool game, gets very intense towards the later levels, having to spot the target :)

Very fun game ;) I really like sharpshooting missions in every game, so I digged the gameplay ;)

Lovesly concept. Unfortunately the mouse is way to sensitive on my computer - can't get past level 3-4 :/

Fun game, gets pretty challenging!

Good job! Semi-challenging and very fun to play! Enjoyed it loads. I featured it in my compilation video of Ludum dare 27 games, if you'd like to check it out

Good job! Got to mission 8. There aren't many games that require me to mentally make notes before I start each mission. So glad the PDA was there from time to time ;) Would have helped if the person didn't rotate while in the PDA though - sometimes I had three seconds left and I got the back of the person in the PDA, which was annoying.

Pretty nice work! I love you take on the theme, and it was done well. This reminds me of other sniper games. The people's faces were very funny. Sounds were good. Tablet was nicely modeled. 8/10.
(I made it to level 7 or 8.)

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.
