Wow thank you very much guys ^^. It makes me very happy to think that you enjoyed playing my game.

About music and sound, I totally agree i should´ve included some. Next time, that would be one of my top priorities, thanks for the feedback!

I played it by myself and I think that players have too much HP.

The jump physics-- and I hesitate to call it that-- are very poor. Gravity does not work like that! In addition, the ammo limitations were far too low, and I frequently wasted time waiting for a crate to load. I also don't know if it's possible to get the crates in the corners.

That being said, the four-directional firing was very cool and I wish I saw more games that implemented that mechanic.

the four-directional shooting was pretty cool. That's usually kind of a rare thing for many platform shooters like these, I feel. The gameplay was overall fairly solid, but I feel like it would benefit from an increased spawn rate on weapon crates. I encountered a lot of scenarios where both my opponent and I were out of ammo and couldn't interact with each other, so we just had to wait patiently for the next weapon drop.

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. 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.
