Logic is written in JavaScript. Tiles are randomly distributed.
Rendering is done with raw WebGL and simple GLSL shaders
that offset texture coordinates to select the correct
animation frame or tile within a sprite sheet.

Resolution is 512x512 so that it fits most devices
including laptops at x768 resolution.

Really nice. I especially liked all the player animations.

Liked the art and music. Really liked how the music changed and got mre tense as you got deeper. Trolls creep me out and coupled with the slow reloads of the period weapons it's a tense game. Well done. Nice work for 48 hours. The controls and ladders work very well and that's not easy to get right.

Hah, awesome game! The "fraaaak! I FORGOT TO RELOAD" moment this game cave me was totally awesome. I liked the gfx, and there's actually bit of tactics when maneuvering those trolls.

Me likes.

This could be expanded into so many things: new monsters, new treasures, new type of entrances (or drop from hole but no ladder up), experience points, powerups, faster reload bonuses, ammo, new guns...

(also: this game has one of the best player character move animation I've seen in the history of ld48. The reload anim is very good too)

Pretty difficult. It reminds me of some older games with the impending doom and shooting limitation. Well done.

Solid entry, with challenging gameplay. Graphics and audio is good. Restricted shooting mechanism is also a good idea, so it's necessary to plan ahead. Detection of ladders could use some improvement, at the moment it's possible to climb besides them.

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.
