Can clearly see what you were going for, shame you didn't finish it!

Suicided into a wall around 150 kills. Never saw anything as a threat. Liked the weapon setup.

I thought I was indestructible until I realized my death count was rising. I killed a lot of bogeys though, a whole lot of them!

Interesting concept, but it seemed like there were so many enemies that the only way to succeed was to hold the shoot key and hope you didn't get hit. Good job though!

Fun game. Was a little hard to read at first due to colors, but got into it pretty quickly.

Very cool. Amazing soundtrack. Maybe a little too many enemies but still a good job. Congratulations!

Thank you for all the comments! I was aiming for a bullet hell style with lots of dodging, unfortunately that removed all of of the player skill from the equation >.<

A simple fast paced game. I like the combination of killing stuff while avoiding obstacles- I wasn't really good at it though, but I had fun trying a few times.

nice concept and wonderful soundtrack! Too bad you didn't finish it. I have a question: when you die how can I start all over again? I need to refresh the page or there is something that I'm missing?

@DDFranky: there should be a Restart button on the right side of the screen

I like where this going! Movement felt smooth and made it possible for some very close calls. Felt a little helpless without health pickups or shields, but managed to score 124 (after quite a few tries, mind you ;)

At first it seems to be really fun, but then I'm constantly dying (the bullets can change directions!) and it feels a little bit glichy.

Nice little game, enjoyed playing it. It is hard to know which obstacles are above you (and you can dive through) and which are on your level though

Hi there. You got the essentials working. Found it impossible once the maze/wall parts started to get in the way. Needs some playtesting and then to ramp up the difficulty gradually. Good job!

You must sign in to comment.

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.
