Controls: WASD + Space for movement, mouse click for shooting.

I didn't quite finish, however I'm still very pleased with my effort. I only started learning how to code this year. Every project I start I learn a ton, in this project it was actually art and animation that I taught myself. And I'm very pleased with the outcome seeing as I hadn't done either before. Considering this and the fact that I was managing a 50 person LAN party this weekend I don't mind that I didn't finish my game in time. I had a blast and I'm already looking forward to the next Ludum Dare.

Interesting take, nice smooth gameplay feel. With a lot of polish and clean-up this could be really fun little shooter. Best of luck.

Very good starting point! The gun feels extremely satisfying. Although it felt strange to use the Up Arrow key to shoot.

Ludum Dare is all about learning. Finishing may be a pleasant byproduct but it is not required.

Thanks for your effort an your game!

For your first year learning how to code, this sure became a neat little game! Good job!

I also learned a lot on this LD, I hope you keep making games, it's a fun way to practice your coding skills! =D

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.
