Rifle Rambler

by snade - 48 Hour Compo Entry

In this game you shoot the enemy! (Nothing new there)
The enemies are aliens from another planet, which, for some reason, is very close to earth and, for that reason, the aliens are invading. (Totally doesn't go against all laws of physics *cough*)

2 worlds!
More Explosions!
Never seen before graphics! *cough*
Cheap sound effects!
and last but not least: MORE EXPLOSIONS!

Can't download or play, don't rate. but please tell me whats wrong in the comment section below so i can fix that.

Playable, easy to grasp (easier than I thought, since the "how to play" screen scared me with all the controls).

I never really felt the need to switch weapon -- the blaster was plenty for my needs. I could just hide somewhere safe and keep shooting!

That was pretty solid and a good amount of fun, nice screen shake and effects, well done :)

Pretty straightforward, I enjoyed it. Enemy shots were really difficult to see, but it wasn't terribly difficult so that wasn't much of an issue. I liked the explosions effects.

Pretty cool idea with the gravity changing! It was really cool jumping from one planet to the other and dodging enemies that way.

Only thing I have to criticize is a missing mouse lock. I accidentally switched out of the game by clicking outside the window. Other than that, really cool. Almost as many bullets as my own entry, and way better physics than I have :-p

Forgot about the change weapon option till I read the comments. I too felt the blaster was enough. Addictive sound effects btw. I good game play but could be harder.

Funnest game I've played yet this LD. Love lots of enemys! I think the enemys need to do a little bit more damage, so I have to fear for my life more.

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.
