Clashing Galaxiesby lkr - 48 Hour Compo Entry
Clashing Galaxies is a 4X "lite" set in space.
Note: You can pause/unpause with the P key if things get too hectic.
You win by claiming all your opponent's planets.
Planets are connected as they're claimed, and serve as paths for ships built in your shipyards.
Planets provide gold and science, that can be used to build buildings and invest in research.
If you hold your mouse over the buildings in the planet view, you can see what they do. If you happen to play on a mouseless device, here's a quick summary:
- Radio Tower: Increases planet's influence growth (grows its borders faster, and pushes more strongly against your opponent's borders)
- Shipyard: Automatically builds ships that attacks enemy planets. You need to research level 1 of Robotics to enable ship building.
- Planetary Shield: Reduces the damage planets take from enemy ships
- Science Lab: Increases science income per tick on this planet
- Mine: Increases science gold per tick on this planet
The game was made with mostly vanilla.js, along with a couple of libraries for the stuff I'd rather not code by hand - especially on a deadline :)
The music was made in Propellerhead Reason (and can be turned off if it doesn't suit your taste :P).

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.
