Galactic Arena

by romandtom - Jam Entry

Hello LD fellows,
Today in our Ludum Dare journey, we'll take you
through the galactic.

You'll meet some of the most dangerous creatures
that are known, and some which are not so known yet.
You'll find their secrets, fight with them, against them and conquer their stars.

As some of you know, but probably most earth people
who reads this post in LD wouldn't know.
A very important tournament will take place in the next few weeks, where there will be only one representative for each star.
Fortunately, there will be only one winner in this tournament,
or one winner who will get alive of this anyway.

Good Luck! Please don't let down
your very own star!

right now there is only 1 character available and the design is not complete of course.


::player 1::
right, left - run
up - jump
down (Hold) - guard and load mp
space - attack

::player 2::
D, A - run
W - jump
S (Hold) - guard and load mp
Left CTRL - attack

Trust you,

Chrome blocks it saying it's malicious. You might want to fix that.

Not sure how this relates to the theme, but it looks interesting.

So I played your game, and I really liked that you could play against another human, that was really fun! You should make the player and enemy different colours, so you can tell the difference. I really liked your animations, and the graphics in the fight scene were pretty cool! Nice game! :)

Very nice moves and animations. I agree with creative630 the AI was pretty brutal. Very nice work though!

I liked the characters animations. It is often difficult to say, where is my character, and where is the enemy

This was a pretty fun beat-em up. I'd like to see the additional planets fighters if there's more time for adding them later.

Impressive animation work for the short period of time.

Animations are absolutely amazing. The AI is a bit too tough and some sound would've helped. Overall a nice game!

Pretty cool game, animations of fighting is smooth. I like the skill mechanics and how simple it is. Good job Loving the graphics however the hand doesn't seem to fit the style

Solid gameplay. Nice graphics. Ridiculously hard AI. Sometimes I couldn't tell which character is played by me.

"The winner is left player" I love that :D Excellent anims, rock hard AI, but I enjoyed running away and taking a kicking!

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.
