You Only Get One Choice - Survive

A fast paced defense game that puts your reflexes to the test.
Use the mouse to control a shield around the core to block incoming bullets. However, as time passes the shield shrinks and bullets spawn more frequently.

See if you can survive for 60 seconds. Enjoy!

Simple, elegant and effective concept. Nice colours too! I wonder how you could build on this idea a little more...

Simple, but cute. I think it doesn't match given theme... I can use even "You only get one choice: Play this game"...

I had an idea similar to this where you collected one color and blocked another a year or so back, but I really your idea of inevitable death. Nice work :D

Very simple but cool, it's a clever idea ! I love the flat design.

60 seconds was really difficult. Seem to mostly depend on luck. The shield getting smaller was an interesting idea but the randomspanws made it too luckbased.

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.
