Square Warfare: You Only Get One

by cBit - 48 Hour Compo Entry

To play, you must make your way towards the green objective marker in under one minute. The enemies (red squares) keep increasing in speed until you reach the objective, so don't take too long! You can die (and lose the game) by being hit by a red square, taking over a minute, or falling off the edge of the level.

You can use only the mouse to control your square, but if you find that too difficult you can use WASD controls instead.

Detailed controls and other instructions are listed when you run the game.

I'm not sure if we had to host the binaries/source ourselves, so I've linked to the "raw" versions from my github repository ( They should download without a problem, but if anything pops up then I can find somewhere else to host them.

EDIT: I've changed some build properties so you should be able to run it on Windows without any errors now.
If you still get the error, you can try downloading the Visual C++ 2012 Runtime here (sorry!):

This was pretty damn fun.

I need to learn to read things better, the first time through I just spun around shooting. Then once I read that you could move the game made a lot more sense :P.

Thanks for the comments! I'm not sure why that error is happening, but I'll see if I can fix it.

Yeah I can't get it to work either. I'm on Windows 7 and msvcr110d.dll is missing. Tried to download it off the net and it still didn't work. Shame :C

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.
