1 Shot

"You get one shot, become an archery hero."

Space - action
Arrows - control menu
Up key - raise arrow

Having never made a game, wanting to make a game and not having enough willpower to ever finish a game, Ludum Dare seemed like a good opportunity. This is my first entry and first game ever. I used Java 7 alongside LWJGL and Slick Utils.

This game will only run with Java 7. I tried to put it into Java 6 but shit hit the fan.

Fun little game. It uses the theme well. My only complaint with it was when the arrow hit the bullseye, it didn't actually make contact with it.

Not bad. I managed to hit the bullseye on my first try, but wasn't able to do it again.

I thought at first it'd be an aim then fire type of thing. I liked it though, great fun. Nice work!

I really liked the graphics on this game for some reason. They were simple but really good. I included this game in my Ludum Dare Compilation series, if you'd like to check it out :)

Nice first entry, I like the simple idea. A highscore list and more levels would be nice, maybe even with some obstacles.

Blog gave us useful information to work. You have done an amazing job.

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.
