I switched ideas half way in so if you don't like how short the game is I apologize. Anyways I made this game with @SwedishCheese and @KobusVdwalt9 and they helped a lot to make this game great! So I hope this is fun for you!

FYI I am 11 years old, and I have been programming since I was 8.

Nice Graphics. Couldn't figure out if there is any story/goal to achieve - but nice Techdemo ;)

Hiya, movement in the game is way too fast IMO, especially forward and backwards. If I understood correctly the first goal is to jump on the objects spiraling into the spaceship, but I couldn't even land on the first chair (if that is indeed the case) xD

I liked the colors and with some tightening + a bit more mechanics it might be a good game, but now it's still pretty raw. The story was pretty cool though :)

And holy crap... You're ELEVEN?! You've got some serious talent that just needs some tempering. Good luck in the future!

Hi there. Fun running around landscape shooting at things, nothing seems to get hit, but looks great. Shame no sound. Made me think of Roadside Picnic...

I had a hard time figuring out what the goal is in this game. The beginning text was hard to read due to lack of punctuation.

The physics of the game were cool, the shoot was well done. I don't know if there was any sound in the game, may just have been my pc.

This style game is great if polished, definitely hard to pull off in such short a time.

Keep it up!

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.
