InterGalactic Mailman

by lucienpro - 48 Hour Compo Entry

Yep, InterGalactic Mailman!

This is my entree for my second Ludum Dare. I didn't really get all that I wanted done, actually I was far off it, but the game is playable.

Please feel free to leave criticism, questions and comments in the comment section but do not judge too much because I am only 13, and I didn't get that much time seeing as I have school and stuff.

Thanks, Lucienpro

I couldn't get past the first level but it's a pretty slick game otherwise.

Impressive! The overall mood is quite good, and I like the arts and music. But I think the difficulty is quite high, and it will be better to shorten the transition time to retry. Well done!

Great shot, and for being so young. Keep at it and put out the best you can do! Loved the graphics on this, though difficulty was high indeed.

Ran into a bug with your coin object attempting to reference the player object after having been killed.

I wish I had been able to make something this cool when I was 13. Great work Lucien! :)

Thanks everyone for these really nice comments! I really appreciate it. Please inform me of any bugs.

Nice style and all, but it's way too hard. These spawn rates are completely insane; I can barely regenerate myself when these bots in the meantime swarm around their spawn point so much that they can't move themselves! >.<

Or maybe there's some trick the game didn't tell me? Like, how to stop from spawning, or how to run? O.o"

Very very hard game! But neat nontheless. You did a very good job!

It was pretty hard, the enemies (and bullets) were pretty hard to dodge (since they moved so fast and you needed to face them to shoot).

i love the look of this game, very polished

Nice graphics though I got an error. I included it in part 15 of my Ludum Dare 30 Compilation video series, if you’d like to check it out :) http://youtu.be/oHxpkDX49XQ

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.

MORE TIPS AND DETAILS AT THE BOTTOM OF THIS PAGE

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 (http://mysite.com/mygame.zip) 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.
