Nice music. Pretty easy to kill the minions because they always spawn in the same spot and always goes in a straight line. Would be better if they could spawn randomly inside the enemy base

Enemies need to be more varied. No challenge when they come from the same spot.

The game is like every tower defender, I like them I was hoping for something different about it. It is a running game in 48 hr and I did not seen any problems or errors good job :)

The music is nice, although it's too bad that it hides the shooting sound effect. I think it would be nice if there was more variation to the game (the enemies never go after you, only your base, so if you have the right upgrades nothing ever gets hurt).

Why didn't you implement A/D movement?

Thank you, everyone, for all the comments, eitehr positive or negative.
I wasn't happy with this theme at all, and I didn't have as much fun making this game as I had while making my other entries. However, I did the best that I could while also having a tiny bit of fun. I would have loved making the game more complex, but I started making the game itself a bit late due to problems with Unity.
@Nobuyoshi I was having a few troubles with diagonal movement which I wasn't able to fix without using too much of my precious time.
@TheMonsterFromTheDeep At first, I made the enemies go after you instead of the base, and I didn't think about putting it back in for some specific kind of enemy.
@Foolmoron Yes, I know that they should spawn in different spots, but again, my motivation for making this was quite low.

Needs a little something more. Not a bad little game, though. I enjoyed playing it. Not sure why it's called dungeon...

Hi there. Like the idea, always like trying archery games. The targets were a bit frustratingly small... tricky to see on background also. Like the music. Good job!

The music is nice, but the game gets boring too fast. The enemys spawn always in the same place, so you can stand still and hold click.

Arbalet shooter simulator with nostalgic music! Awesome!

The music is pretty nice. The gameplay, however, is not very exciting. The player just has to move onto a position in the enemies path once and just hold down the mouse button for the rest of the game, even for the boss. Enemies that take different paths would be way more interesting. Also, having movement tied to mouse aim feels awkward. Moving with WASD and free aiming with the mouse would feel much more natural.

Hello everyone!
I'd like to thank you all for your comments. This was definitely my worst Ludum Dare game so far, but I'm still considering a free iOS version to learn SpriteKit. The enemies definitely should have had different paths. However, I think that the boss was a bit harder. It might be just me, however. Il'll probably make a post-mortem soon.

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.
