You Only Got One Shot

by sekaru - Jam Entry

You Only Got One Shot

As the title implies - you only get one bullet. Each player has one bullet and the aim of the game is to kill your opponent. If both players miss it will cause a draw.

- Launch the server first. If you want to play with friends over the internet you need to portforward port 9001 (TCP) and 9002 (UDP).
- Local multiplayer is available.
- The game requires Java 1.7

- W/A/S/D: Movement.
- Left Mouse Button: Shoot.
- Escape: Go back to menu.

Minimalistic but very fun. Definitely worth the time of forwarding your ports. There's a lot of entries with the one bullet idea but this is the first one that is just plain fun.

Well done!

@Dikkop, thanks! @Jezzamon well if you had any error messages let me know but if you do have Java 7 installed it should work just fine.

This is a lot of fun. Really great game. We got three people together and played a few rounds. Really wish you could support more than two people at the same time, though!

Unfortunately had no friends to play with on that

however simple but well executed, music is cool too ^^

Had problems when running two clients on the same linux machine. Only the selected client would update and the other one would queue every action until I switched over. After using two computers everything worked fine though.

Graphics are fine. Multiplayer is great (and I now from my own entry how much problems that can give you, nearly didn't make the deadline when I found out that the server wouldn't properly work on the intended windows machine).

Music is fun and the game is pretty good for what it does. Best one-shot-game so far. May try it later with a friend.

Sadly I still haven't found anyone to play with yet. The graphics on your screenshots look good. Nice sound. I will come back to try this game soon :)

Hmm... it doesn't work for me. I'm on OSX 10.9.1 running Java Version 1.7.0_25

If I'm honest I'm not quite sure why and the fact that I don't have a Mac to test it doesn't really help. Sorry. Is it giving any error messages or anything?

Multiplayer is great fun, it's a good thing I had my flatmate to try this out with. Simple but effective!

Try this, when running it from the command line, add "-nojvm" to the end.

Cool game. The movement wasn't quite right, but other than that, I love the effects.

Dec 20, 2013 @ 10:23am

I love music and graphics!

Well propably I am the only one who tested it with someone. :D
We found few bugs. When first player had 0 bullets left and the second player shoot level instantly restarted. When my friend connected he had some jumping bugs. It's a very nice game and I'm looking for future versions because it has potential to be a good casual game to play with friends. And I mention to forgot... you should add some option to lower the music volume and option to run fullscreen mode. :)

Yeah I'm aware of the bugs, didn't really have time to fix them. Same goes for an options menu of any sort.

You must sign in to comment.

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.


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 ( 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.
