Iron Risingby tripleVisionGames - Jam Entry
Please let me know if you think it needs any tweaks, I'm working on a post jam 'reloaded' version :D
I've left a link at the top but it's still a work in progress. It is a lot easier as that was the main complaint, but still hard!
I said I had no time, so I made something simple and difficult (like I always tend to do). High scores on Newgrounds, ran out of time for achievements sorry!
Thanks to Max (@ProfXubberley on twitter) for all his help with the sound and music - it is awesome.
It is 1984
A rogue general has taken control of our great navy.
He is preparing to launch nuclear strikes on capital to provoke retaliation against the old enemy.
Now, only you stand alone. You must destroy your own comrades, for the good of the people.
May your death save the lives of millions.
Warning has reached the capital. The populous is being evacuated. Each U-Boat you sink will delay the launch and allow more citizens to reach the safety of our nuclear bunkers.
Press Z to scan to search for other U-Boats.
You cannot move or fire while scanning.
Be careful. If you are looking for them, they might see you too.

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.
MORE TIPS AND DETAILS AT THE BOTTOM OF THIS PAGE
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 (http://mysite.com/mygame.zip) 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.
