This is a very fun game, a little hard though, but maybe i just suck at shooters. :D. It looks like if you had more like with it, you could have had it a lot better.

I found it rather hard to tell what was going on, and what I was supposed to do I love the voice acting though!

Well I certainly wasn't expecting that. The little story that went along with the instructions made me laugh. :P Bloody difficult though. Managed to beat the first mob of enemies, but the second lot completely dominated me, haha.

Nice! I think you kill enemy on too big area.

I... What? I guess I won it because I killed the big horned dude?

Maybe you should've stuck to one type of gameplay and spent your time perfecting that. At the moment it just felt like a lot of different ideas randomly thrown in.

Interesting game idea, but it's lacking some polish. I had no idea when the enemies struck me and when I struck them they'd just disappear. Also, the audio in the intro is too loud and clipping.

Interesting game, though maybe it'd be nice if you added something to see how much damage you're taking, I played it in windowed mode in 1024 x 768, dunno if that had something to do with it.

Oh crap, I took out the health bar for debug purposes right before submission. Lol.

I wasn't really sure whter I was hitting enemies until they dissapeared. Maybe you can give them another color for a frame on hit. Makes the gameplay a bit more solid. Nice game thou

Hmm too hard for me. I also didn't understood what the game has to do with the title and the intro talk...

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.
