Bummer

by thiaguera - Jam Entry

Every year a sadistic TV producer throws a homeless person into a arena full of violent machines to entertain millions (pay-per-view subscribers).

But this year they messed with the wrong bum: Donald Tramp.


Fight the arena over and over and level up until you are strong enough to escape.

I wish the bullets had more range! It's hard to get up close to the enemies to be able to shoot them. Otherwise, really nice all-around.

@TKF15H Well, things get easier as you level up. All character stats increase, including how far he can shoot.

Now that's a theme related game, congratz. Really like it, even if it's a bit hard :)

Pretty cool. I would say it's a little short, I was just getting in to it too lol. Also music doesn't seem to play whilst embedded in ludum dare, maybe it's just me.

Thanks everyone!

@Jellycakes I know it's too short, but I made it all by myself. Didn't have time to expand.

I think this game needs more screenshake. Hmm... what I mean is, it is a super hard game, but it doesn't _feel_ very rewarding. With a few adjustments I think you could have something pretty fun. Maybe I'm just a wuss, but usually games where you die a lot present a faster death/action cycle.

tough game! nice art and controls generally too.

I'd have the gun fire more quickly as it felt way to slow initially. More bullets = more fun.

overall really awesome though!

I was left wanting more! I wanted to use my high level against a boss or something! Still a great job though!

I like the hax way you put it on one screen.
Nice fun little shooter, with cool pixel graphics.
Good job!

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.
