2Worlds1Dream

by lau16menor - Jam Entry

An experimental hybrid between an RPG battle system and an arcade game. I wanted to include more characters and enemies, but I at least got the basic gameplay down, and for me, it's actually pretty fun to see how long you can survive.

The idea of "connected worlds" in this piece comes from the idea of connecting the inhabitants of two parallel worlds, companions who fight alongside each other against their common fate... sadly I didn't really have enough time to really incorporate the narrative though :(

Loved your game. Awesome graphics and music. And the gameplay idea is really nice.

I don't suppose you're a fan of the MegaMan Battle Network games, eh? This is an awesome game to play with two people, and an amusing nightmare to play solo. I like the different attacks everyone gets, too.

To nitpick, while I get that your attacks lock you in place, it feels cruel that Franco's attack has the longest animation, but also tends to have the most attackers on his side.

I really liked this alternative take on combat :-)
It was fairly hard to play solo, but I think I did okay after getting the hang of it.
The graphics are nice and the sound is adequate- Good job!
If you develop this further with a story and such, as you mentioned, I would love to play it again :-)

Someone's already mentioned megaman but the multi character twist is good. Love the pixel art and the cute monsters. maybe add a joint attack if you build up a super bar?

Great graphics, and very nice gameplay feeling too. Well done, one of my fav. so far !
As some mates already said, it was kind of hard to play alone, but challenging !
Thanks for the game :)

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.
