Heartby arrogant.gamer - 48 Hour Compo Entry
*** NEWS: Screen flashing in Chrome fixed ***
Heart is a zelda-like in which you start with 1 heart instead of 3. This makes the game more challenging, but there's more. To win the game, you need the Heart Blade so that you can fight evil. To wield the Master Sword, you need 3 hearts. The only way to get a heart, is for another player to give you theirs.
To play, you need to log in with your twitter account. The rest of the instructions can be found through playing the game. The game is, sadly, extremely short. I consider you a winner if you: get 3 hearts, wield the Heart Blade, and slay all evil.
There is a leader-board, which will display the players
with the most hearts.
-- CONTROLS --
Arrows to move, space to attack (when you have the sword), x to give someone your heart.
-- KNOWN ISSUES --
The screen transition is buggy: don't hold keys down while the screen is sliding, or the game will probably freeze. Who knew that could be so hard!
Once you get the sword, maybe swinging it too much will freeze the game? I've only seen it once.
-- ATTENTION --
As discovered by @nicolasdet, you need to use the twitter handle, not the user name, of the person1 to whom you give your heart. For example, my handle is @ArrogantGamer, but my name is arrogant.gamer

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.
