One Shot at a Time

by benjim - 48 Hour Compo Entry

1/2 players
Blue player: a/d to move left/right, w to shoot up
Red player: left/right arrows, down arrow to shoot down
After shooting you cannot shoot again until your bullet is gone. Coloured squares move through the middle of the screen, shoot them and they do things and stuff. Just play it, you will soon get the hang of it.

Fun concept but it was a bit too slow. perhaps you should increese the movement speed of the bullets

It was fun at first, but I didn't feel it to be that engaging after a match. I too, think it's a bit slow.

you don't see much games with 1 and 2 player option. didn't test the latter though, might be more engaging, but how are you supposed to play against a human with this bullet speed?

Very simplistic, but a decent game anyway, and the squares you can shoot add a nice bit of variation. The only thing I didn't like was the numbers in the middle of the screen: some kind of life bars at the top and bottom would be more attractive.

Basic, but not bad in any way.

The game was fun and the blocks in the middle helped give it some variation which was good.

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.
