Boring Tanks

by Toast - Jam Entry

Besides not having enough time the last three days, i did get stuck on stupid details. Therefore the game is not finished, and the "boring" in the title is to be taken literally.

But i like the idea (as it is in my head), so i'll try to create a post-ld version in the next days.

However, it's my second Ludum Dare and it was fun again. See you at LD32.

What are the controls? Can the tanks do anything but move?

You seem to have run out of time when making this, but at least you got a solid foundation for something fun. Keep working on this!

This certainly isn't finished as you stated. I know that feeling; had a similar problem with wasting time on stupid stuff this LD. But with this experience we should perform better next time^^

But at the first look I like the feeling when moving tanks!
It moves fast and clean. I would like to now shoot around ^^

Add the ability to shoot, randomly moving targets and a score and you have a playable game =)

GJ on shipping anyway and not just giving up as others may have done.

Well, it's a start! I can't quite tell if the game is meant to be real-time or turn-based...One interesting thing is that if you click a new path while the tank is moving, the tank "teleports" to the start of that new path. I don't know if that's a bug or a feature! Anyway, good luck with the post-LD version. ;)

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. Alternatively, if you just posted it, wait a minute. The cache may not have refreshed yet.

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.
