Dungeon Encounter

by Perry - 48 Hour Compo Entry

What ever happens to the imps which Adventurers smash their ways through to get to the promised loot. The only game controls are clicking and dragging imps from the bottom bar onto the "board". Enemies will come relentlessly for 30 rounds.

Good old tower defense concept... But really greatly done!

I don't know why this has no comments.

This is awesome... really great game. The theme maybe doesn't tie in that well.

Pixel art is nice, I cannot hear any sound.

I love the imps ! Nice music.
Good "one touch" mecanics, but a bit annoying at a moment.

Pretty fun, nice art! Resources came a bit too easy in the start, and then got steamrolled by the grouped enemies.

Pretty fun, you might want to tell people to turn off ad blockers though, the game wouldn't run until I turned mine off. I also needed to enable Flash on the page.

I love the level of polish you manage to put into this. Really well made little game!

Wow, that was really fun! Nice pixel art graphics and great overall execution.. I've lacked some way how to remove my imps (other than let them die) from board to replace them with some other guys though :)

I like this a lot except for the bunch of times I click to add a guy and it just scrolls the screen, aside from that really well done fun little game.

The Java version is unplayable due to the horrible controls. The web version seems to work somewhat OK, even though the controls still don't allow me to react fast enough.

I also had a lot of money, but nothing I could spend it on really, needs a moneysink in the form of stronger units.

Great interpetation of tower defense! I really like the graphics and the audio was really good! Theme is a bit meh, I understand it though. Keep going! (:

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.
