Last Chance Supermarketby Sebastian - 48 Hour Compo Entry
Last Chance Supermarket is an exhilarating shopping experience, with death lurking around every aisle.
The game involves madly rushing around the shops late on Christmas Eve, trying to purchase a few special things for the big day. You only get one chance a year to really show your family how much you care, so make sure you get everything on that list! Try not to buy too much extra stuff though as money is tight and your wife is fussy about clutter! Above all, however, please don't get yourself killed by a speeding shopping cart...
Use your mouse to steer the shopping cart around and sidle up to the things you wish to purchase, whereupon pressing the spacebar will pop them into your trolley.
I hope you'll forgive my rather 'loose' implementation of the theme this year round, the idea is there, but certainly no definite 'You only get one' mechanic. Unless you want to count the fact that you only get one trolley?!
Regardless, I hope you have some fun with it - certainly was a blast to make.
Now excuse me while I tumble into bed, I'll be back in the morning to play your game, if you leave a comment that is :)

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.
