Any ship can be a MINESWEEPER... Once.

by tehryanx - 48 Hour Compo Entry

Controls: Left and Right to move, Down to fire

Run out the clock and aim carefully. If a charge reaches the bottom without killing anyone you lose points :P

EDIT: if you find the charges sink waaaay too slow: That's a bug, and it only happens on some machines. :( Sorry.

Love it! Sound effects and graphics (both the of the sailor guy and the onomatopoeic stuff) are brilliant.

And the In the Navy cover just made it for me.

Hahahaha, That song at the end, well done. :D
I also like the explosion sound effect, it was all pretty cool. :D

I like the controls, they are really solid. The sound is funny and get annoying slower than you'd think.

Hahaha, the smile when you win... C:

The sound and visual effects are awesome! Also, that probably wasn't intended, but after I first lost, the "In the Navy" song carried over to the game. And that was PERFECT. I don't care if it was accidential, you get five humor stars for this. (Is that you singing?)

All in all, pretty cool if somewhat hard game. Good job!

Nice explosions and great song :) Gameplay is pretty solid too. It takes some skill to predict where the bomb will end up.

Love the mouth sound effects. Also cool rippling water and a solid game mechanic. Nicely done!

Really nice water effect! I included it in part 22 of my Ludum Dare Compilation video series! :)

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.
