Aquilaby Anshul Goyal - 48 Hour Compo Entry
Aquila (also known as a constellation in the northern sky) is a top down arcade game. You play as an ancient soul who is trying to escape from the ruins. The level is generated dynamically as the player moves from tile-to-tile. I think may be I can call this "Procedural Generation", as there is no randomness involved. The goal of the game is to reach the end tile while avoiding or killing enemies. You can also collect some ancient artifacts as an added bonus by destroying the ruins.
The game fits (I hope so) the theme in the following two ways:
1) Enemy bullets can also destroy the ruins. In that case artifacts wont be revealed. So you have only one chance.
2) Since the level is dynamically generated, so you only get one "unique" level per play session.
- WASD (Arrow Keys) to Move and Left-Click to Shoot.
Feel free to tweet the generated level to me @goyalanshul. I'll be extremely happy to see those!!
All feedback is welcome. Thanks for playing!!!
PS: I couldn't manage to find enough time to do the sounds. I used the free sounds from sounddogs.com. Sorry about that!

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 (http://mysite.com/mygame.zip) 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.
