Laserama

by runsintowalls - Jam Entry

Laserama pits you against the laser turrets. You gotta take 'em all out, but your gun's outta juice! There's a battery somewhere, but it's almost dead. Only one shot!

NOTE: The version we had finished at the end of the jam was basically unplayable. We put a few more hours' work into it after the deadline.

It is not clear what are the targets you need to destroy. nor is there a message when you failed to destroy all of them.

Also the levels with the rotating blue lasers do not give you any time to see what is going on before killing you. You will always die the first time you enter that level and most likely also the second time. Adding a small countdown or changing the start rotation of the laser so that you have more time would help those levels a lot.

Awesome! I really dig it, found it pretty hard to judge the jump though, You should defiantly carry on exploring this idea more!

Difficult to read the font.

As soon as I get the battery/shoot the robot, the game freezes.

I really like the mechanics you introduced bit by bit. I loved how it was a mix of puzzle solving and reflexes

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.
