One shot, One opportunity.

by Sr. Nice - 48 Hour Compo Entry

A D to move right and left, SPACE to jump, right mouse to fire.

Also If you are left handed you can play with arrow keys.(Thanks Als)

You must take the bullet from ground to shoot again

Pretty good job overall.

For some reason it says "right mouse button to shoot", it's left.

I'd have wanted the enemies to be a bit slower and jumping height less. Those are personal preferences though.

A very well made game, such fluidity and thanks for just a jar not not hundreds of libraries and scripts to install and run :)

That was fun :) You took an obvious execution but managed to put a surprising spin to it nonetheless, I really had a blast playing this!

Really solid. Like the spin you took on the "one bullet" idea. Enemy behavior makes it kind of impossible not to take a lot of damage, but its still fun.

I got an error saying the .jar file was corrupt. Any idea what the problem might be?

Works fine on Linux too just so you know. Though there didn't seem to be any way to exit the game? Had to close it through my taskbar.

It was nice to play! If you don't know how it works, it's a hard game, but when you know it, it's awesome! Nice Job!

Pretty good!
(if i where you i'd lower the contrast on the background in future works, it's kinda eye killing :3)

Nice game, challenging and simple. I took a similar approach to theme in my game :)

Solid gameplay, felt smooth. Not the most original implementation of the theme, but it worked and provided a pretty fun time!

The game is not too terribly fun since you have to constantly pick up your bullet - not a bad thing, but the enemies move so fast it's hectic! Timing how you shoot and where you place your bullet become important, definitely an interesting game mechanic.

Extremely nice game.
So greyish.

One of the best!

It runs way too slow on my computer, and the controls seem to be laggy. I don't think my computer is a potato. Can't win the first level, because the enemies aren't affected by the lag.

Great solid game.

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.
