Alien Defense

by swipefaststudios - Jam Entry

I just wanted to finish a game for the jam!
I couldn't think of a really good idea and game play mechanics for the game so this is what I came up with!
It only has one level and 10 Aliens to kill, but I just wanted to finish something for once!
Next time I will try to think of a better idea for a game and hopefully it will be easier to make levels for!
Hope you all enjoy this silly little game, goes to show how hard it is to come up with good game ideas! It was fun regardless! Happy Gaming!

I did work on another game which is a Networking Server Tycoon which deemed to hard to play and finish! check my youtube channel for that timelapse

This is my network Game if you want to try it:

Good game! I am quite fond of shooter games and yours was pretty good for only 72 hours. I liked that you had boxes of ammo and health lying around. There were a few problems though, like I could walk through the barriers, and even at 0 health I didn't die. But either than that it was good!

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.
