The sidekicksby Ludipe - Jam Entry
A lot of people are complaining because the game it's too easy, we didn't have time to balance it, so we added a cool feature in the settings menu. You can tweak the difficulty and create crazy rules. Most people are missing it, so be sure to check it out.
A super villain is trying to take over the world and a sidekick is the only one who can get in his way. But you are trapped in your lair and your nemesis is throwing fireballs at you. The worst part is that you only get one shield to deflect his attacks while you try to save the day. Being a hero(or a sidekick) is never easy.
Player 1- Arrow keys to move, jump and use tools.
Player 2- WASD to move, jump and use tools.
Misc- Z to zoom in/out, ESC to pause and P to advance text.
-Single Player mode
-Coop mode(which is fun even with just one player, try moving two characters at the same time)
-VS (not available right now, we'll add it in a future version)
-We set up a few difficulty modes but you may change everything as you wish(settings menu) and create crazy rules
To be fixed:
-Music (Due to tech issues just one song was added, the game will feature more tracks in a future version)
-During the tutorial, when the computer tells you to press "return" it means the down key
-We didn't have much time to balance difficulty; If we upgrade the game we'll fix this
-Linux and OSX versions will be uploaded as soon as possible(DONE)
-We recommend using the desktop version instead of the web version
-Our game it's inspired on "Lovers in a dangerous..." as explained here: http://www.ludumdare.com/compo/2013/12/14/so-far-so-good-30/
-Right now we want to get as much feedback as possible, in a month or so we'll decide if we end up developing this idea further.
Hope you like it!

IMPORTANT NOTE: If you want to place in the final results, you NEED votes. The easiest way to get votes is by rating other games. Judging lasts for 3 weeks following the end of Ludum Dare. For best effect, rate 20 games as soon as possible. Rating more games is encouraged.
MORE TIPS AND DETAILS AT THE BOTTOM OF THIS PAGE
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.
