10x10 seconds

by Anton_D - 48 Hour Compo Entry

This is my first time that i participated in Ludum Dare and I really learned a lot. The game is not 100 procent how I how i wanted it to be, but I think it's pretty decent for a first entry.
It is a zombie shooter game, which lasts 100 seconds and every 10 seconds you get an upgrade, but another zombie spawns.
There is currently no music and pretty bad art, but that's because I have no artistic talent.
I hope you enjoy it!

Note:(To get the source,open the .jar with an 7ZIP or winRAR)

IMPORTANT: I developed this on an azerty keyboard, so the controls are a bit messed up -> use the arrow keys instead.
+ please read the "Help" section -> the first 10 seconds of the game you can't move.

Somehow it felt a bit buggy for me. Could be because of poor machine, but the bullets go through enemies without doing anything at times. And I coudn't move most of the time (tried pressing WASD but nothing happened except it seldom moved slightly and then stuck again). The player could also turn constantly when moving the mouse and not only when shooting. The spawn point could also vary slightly around each spawn as now you can just spawnkill every monster until the spawn changes again.

The game was a bit glitchy, and I wasn't able to use the arrow keys. Also, the angle the player aims at should match where the mouse is, not when it clicks!

Nice job!

Hit detection seems to be a bit off. Nice job though!

Good job for the first contest, the design is neat.

The collision system needs a rework though, often my bullets just flew past the zombies and they got stuck randomly.

Kind of glitchy, nice idea with the 10 second upgrades, good attempt!

Very fun little game! Sucks that you uploaded the wrong build. Good job! Liked the style and was pretty fun to play, fit the theme very well.

Congrats on your first game! Good job for your first LD entry, and despite the game was somewhat glitchy, it was surprisingly fun. :)

I suggest you to go through the code and fix all the bugs you have there, you will learn a lot more in that as well. For example, the collision boxes were quite a bit off, sometimes the bullets went right through the zombies and sometimes the bullet didn't "visually" hit, but it still killed them. Also, they got stuck behind the spawn point a couple of times. Minor things and simple to fix these. :)

I couldn't move my character at all, not with arrows, not with WASD... Does anyone have a hint how to fix that? Also, a few enemies seem to ignore my shots. Assumption: If the enemy spawns after a shot bullet, it won't check for collision, maybe? In any case, great to see another newcomer around =)

@X-Or I'm sorry to hear about all the bugs that are in the game. The first 10 seconds all movement is blocked and after that you should be able to move around freely. The bullets go indeed go sometimes through the zombies, I forgot something in the collision detection method.

Nice little game you got there! The collisions between the zombies and bullets seems a bit off, but otherwise, i enjoyed it!

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.
