Ricochet

by dopplerdefekt - 48 Hour Compo Entry

My first entry on the Compo!

You're lost in space and you have only one bullet left in your spaceship. You can shoot it and pick it up again, but don't let it's power reach zero! Destroy all the enemies to reach the next level!

The game was made using Construct 2 (http://www.scirra.com/), the images were created using Inkscape(http://www.inkscape.org/), and the sound effects with bfxr (http://www.bfxr.net/).

Pretty nice, I made it all the way through. The two main things I noticed is that it says game over even when clearing a level, and sometimes the red ball things would spawn on top of me.

Great idea for the theme!! It was fun but some bugs made it annoying, such as you respawning inside an enemy a few times in a row haha. My bullet sometimes would just go off screen and disappear. Other than that, I really like it!

Nice use of the theme. Its one of the few games where it doesn't feel shoe horned into the game. I think the difficulty curve was a bit high, and you sometimes re-spawned on your enemies. Pretty good overall.

Good idea to combine asteroids with the theme, it fits well. I think one thing that could be improved, is the spawning. The enemies should always a bit away from the player, to prevent instant death.

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.
