Bounty of Corruption

by Tom Gardiner - 48 Hour Compo Entry

A meteor from another planet has landed on Earth, bringing vicious monsters to destroy all humanity. Luckily, you were somehow the only survivor left on the planet, therefore your task is to kill anything that moves. Good luck!

Terribly sorry about the introduction and outro screens, I was rushed for time. Hopefully the amount of work I put into making the game fun to play will pay off. Thanks!

Controls: WASD to move, look with mouse, click to shoot.

Edit: I fixed a game crashing bug (because of a single variable off by one number!), which is allowed, so the game should be playable in its entirety now!

Awesome fast paced gameplay, greatly polished feel. I ran out of ammunition too fast because shooting feels so good! :D

Screenshots had me expecting a Nuclear Throne clone, but I was pleasantly surprised with the execution and general polish (especially on the map screen). Good job!

I am horrible at these kinds of games. However, this was fun and addicting. The camera shifts were not incredibly smooth for me, it made it difficult to see enemies in the direction I was running. I think that could be fixed by zooming out by maybe 25 or 50%. This was very well executed otherwise. Good entry.

Hey, you've achieved great feel while shooting with the shaking. Also graphics of shoots are nice, it seems like these can really harm someone :). But the real fun begins when you get the machine gun, loved it :) Great job!

And thx for checking out my game :)

I enjoyed this. The movement was slightly too fast, but it made for a fast paced environment. Ammo tended to be too scarce as well. For a 48 hr entry, this was pretty stellar.

Oh this one is nothing but action. And I'm glad it is! Very enjoyable, very cool!

Great game! Had a problem with bullets being absorbed while firing next to walls.

Really well done, especially for being a 48 hour game! The graphics and audio made me reminisce about Super Crate Box, and the game was VERY fun to play. Not a whole lot of innovation I felt, but overall 5/5!

Plays very similarly to Nuclear Throne, hehe. The game felt quite polished, lots of little nice effects. Nice work!

Nice, this is really well executed and fun. I was gonna complain about variety of gameplay and then I immediately unlocked the machine gun :P Also once I think I spawned stuck inside a cactus, haha. Nice music too. Great work.

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.
