Dark Rabbit

by Lo-X - Compo Entry

Dark Rabbit is a game in which you are a evil genious, for a rabbit. You want to take your revenge on the kid that tortured you while a little cute mini rabbit. To do that, you decide to kill all kids you'll encounter. Of course kids tend to catch you too, when they're smart enough.

Controls :
- WASD or Arrows to move
- Space to set a trap on the ground
- Shift to shot your Carrot Gun.
- Escape to quit

I used :
- Plain C++11 with SFML as a graphics, audio, window library
- My Banjo
- My mouth to make someawesome sounds
- sfxr
- Gimp and my mouse

Please share your thoughts as well as your best scores :)

Really good entry! Some quick feedback - A reset button would have been nice, to respawn after dying. If there is one, I missed it - my fault. Carrot gun also seems to reload a little slowly, though I guess that just takes getting used too :)

Really nice game overall - enjoyed the look/feel of it and the audio :D Plus its always nice to see games that were programmed from scratch!

Hi ! Thanks for the feedback :) Yeah a reset or retry button should have been implemented. To be honnest I was late, the waves were the last thing to come in and I kinda forgot to add that button :p
I'm glad you liked the game overall, I'll try yours today :)

If there was only an easier way to just look for web based Ludum dare games. :(. Cant play this.

@Grindstorm Where do you live ? I tried and it looks fine but I can upload the game to a server closer from your place
@digibody I think the opposite, as a linux user web based games almost always don't work. Especially with Unity.

An interesting game idea! Played it for a bit, but was quickly killed :D Good job anyway

Had a hard time running on Linux:

./darkrabbit: error while loading shared libraries: cannot open shared object file: No such file or directory

I downloaded glew from here:

built it, and moved the files in the lib directory and it worked.

I liked the bomberman meets plants vs zombies style. That being said, an skewed isometric view with WASD keys is really difficult to get a hold on. That, and laying TNT and having someone walk on it directly got me killed a few times. Not having to exit when I lose is also a good feature.

Overall good job. :)

@Mokosh buttoa : hi and thanks for the feedback. Indeed a retry button is missing deeply. I'll add that glew lib file I forgot, thanks for pointing me out that issue :)
As for the iso it's indeed tricky at start, but I wanted to take the shot, it's actually my first game in 2D iso view. That's a lesson I learned for the next time :p

That is one sadistic rabbit. Great job! I don't know that I have come across anything quite like that.

Funny stuff, and fun! Graphics are nifty too, it's a shame more people don't try isometric games for LD.
Nice job!

Graphics are kinda poor, sounds are not so good.
I didn't enjoy the game, it looks too much unfinished to me, it needs more enemies and maps.
But the idea of the black rabbit is nice. Why does he hate so much kids ?

Nice idea. The game is quite fun. A little more polish could turn this idea in to a great game.

@crazyrems : sorry you didn't like so much things. I couldn't add more maps as the theme is "Entire game on one screen". More enemies had been planned, but I hadn't enough time too implement them :( As explained in the description, Dark Rabbit hate kids because of his previous kid owner that tortured him so bad. So he decided to have is revenge.

@everyone-else : Thanks all of you for your feedback and nice comments :)

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.
