This is what I came up with on the afternoon, my first solo game ever! The theme is vaguely there, I just really wanted to make something in space exploding with music.

Your mission is to protect our wonderful sun.

Left mouse - Shoot like crazy

W - Move forward

S - Move back

Also, be sure to collect the power ups because then you will cause alot more explosions.

Hope you have fun!

Not so innovative concept, but the game is well playable and highly polished.

I liked it! Felt it was a bit easy towards the start and much easier once I worked out I could hold the mouse down. Pretty well polished. I liked the story bit at the start a greater variety of asteroid colours might have been nice but I feel that might have detracted from the "iron asteroid" idea. I like the music and the sound. Controls felt a bit stiff but I guess that ship is bloody massive so it makes up for it ;D. Good game overall! Nice one.

Solid game, a little bit of screen shake would have gone a long way to making the explosions and the shots feel meatier

Fantastic music! Adds to a good mood. The ship does move slightly slow, however.

I actually played a few levels before I realized I could move and then is was like a whole other game =) Really cool take on a simple shooter.

The game was very fun, i find the ship very slow but it is not a problem, great work :D

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.
