One Ship Troopers

by frogmaster - 48 Hour Compo Entry

You have one day, one ship and only one button to save yourself! Prove that you are worthy being the one!

- there is only one obstacle
- you can performing only one action at the time
- your ships is broken and there is only one working button (steering the starship with only one button, deal with it!)
- there is only one level
- you have only one ship, it's a real thing!
- and yeah, it WILL be hard, even harder than before :]

I really fail in making easy games. Last time no one passed my game AFAIK. This time will be even harder IMO (it took me over half an hour to pass what I've created.

Nice game, I just wish the asteroids had smaller hitboxes :~) I do like the one button mechanic although it took me a few minutes to figure out how it exactly works. Also DNF.

Bah, I thought I had it but some of those spaces are just too tight to navigate with this control scheme :P.

Nice take on the theme. It falls a bit short in terms of gameplay, but it's a very nice idea!
I agree with lincore, the asteroids could have smaller hitboxes, or be smaller entirely.

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.
