Public Mischief Performanceby Jiggawatt - Jam Entry
* Sadly somewhat unfinished at the time of submission. No title/in-game manual, music or some of the cool content I thought of putting in. But it's fully playable otherwise. *
You are launched out of a cannon and have to use your probe to break things with style. The character itself is vulnerable to collisions, so make sure to shield it by rotating the probe.
The probe has special properties that can be used as you charge the yellow bar with combos: slow time or use the probe to push you.
Enter: launch cannon
Left/Right: rotate cannon and probe (with Shift to rotate the probe slower)
Z: toggle nitro mode on/off (the probe will propel the character to the opposite direction)
X: toggle bullet time mode on/off (you're gonna need this)
After dying or running out of speed, a jury will evaluate your performance. Each of the three judges likes some aspect of mayhem more than others, see if you can deduce which from their hints and eventually please them all.
Edit: changed the link to a html page with embedded instructions, didn't touch the game itself.

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 (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.
