Awesome that you had alot of audio in it and music, just mix it a wee bit more even next time since I would have loved to hear more of the music:D

Nice game. I really like the graphics of the gamescreen (Train, backgrounds and such). That's why I really hate the fact you made such a big and ugly HUD. Overall well done :)

Neat graphics ! But I would have put some kind of indicator to tell the player how far from the end the level he is.

The animation of the vehicle and track/rail felt really nice - created a great sense of speed. If you applied that level of love to the whole game, you'll have something cool on your hands!

Were there any more enemies?

@spotco yeah there were supposed to be, but due to the lack of time..
The assets are already created by our lead artist; We couldn't get the AI for them to work so it got cut.

The audio options seemed to have no effect at all

Sorry about that.

Loved the audio, loved the background art. Gameplay was very challenging, though starting over was bugged.

Oh man, this was hectic! If only there were more types of enemies! I liked of the train moved and the scenarions changed with each level. Great job!

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.
