This was the most stressful thing we have ever done in our lives. Holy poop! The game is no where near complete, We did about 25% of what was planned.

Congrats on your game. I really liked the idea, look and sound of this but I just couldn't get a handle on the controls well enough to get into the game very far. Cheers, Ben.

Game boots OK. Music's pretty good, but it gets annoying fast. So bright and harsh! No sound effects that I can hear.
Not sure why you chose "Tap to play" when you need a keyboard to construct towers.
Graphics are nice, cutesy and pulsating.
Collision detection/mechanics are unreliable, it feels like the E key doesn't respond when it should.
Needs a minimap.
Not buying it as a game. Gameplay seems to mostly revolve around grappling with the controls/mechanics. You can be damaged by the rays emitted by your own towers o_O

@wolfMother

The controls for the game were rushed, the entire game was programmed in less than 12 hours since an issue happened with the other programmer we had and I had to do all his work as well as mine within the last 12 hours of the deadline. I wanted to add more gameplay mechanics but I honestly had no time to add anything else.

I wanted the rays to harm you so the level itself progressively gets harder as you connect more planets together but as said before, the small deadline I had to do all the programming, meant so little was done/fixed.

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.
