Planet Connection

by Fera - 48 Hour Compo Entry

Thats my first Ludum Dare entry and it's nothing very special. ^^

Used tools:
- NodeJS / NPM
- angular-generator
- Netbeans
- Paint.Net

Unfortunately, there is a bug in firefox which causes that the planets are not clickable.

Nice ship design. After I failed playing cause I was using firefox .After I started it with Chrome I was able toplay it. The controlls are not very easy, but this is surly part of the game. Cause it's not easy to connect them all. Cool that there is a random map generator :) the IntroText is so funny.. enjoyed it... maybe you will provide a post ld of it ^^

Fun little game. Took one play to realize I need to be moving forward in order to turn.

A nice attempt. A bit lacking, and the controls were awkward to navigate with.

Not immediately obvious how to turn. Could be an interesting mechanic if developed a bit more.

Enjoyable fun game. I got 34 connections on medium woohoo! I like the ship movement. A restart after you finish would have been nice. GJ.

nice game, the fixed height of the window is annoying on a small screen, I had the vertical scroll bar and it was moving all the time.
good job!

I didn't know what I was doing but it is a great effort for a first game. Remember to add audio next time. Well done!

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.
