Snowman Crossfire!

by Crazy046 - Compo Entry

My Second ludum dare this time round i wanted to test a C library i am working on. And if i say so myself i'm quite happy with what it managed to produce. :)

Made with:


Top down round based survival, how many round can you last?

Forward: W
Backwards: S
Strafe Left: A
Strafe Right: D
Shoot: Left Click
Open Shop: E
Start Round: R
Toggle Mute: M

For other keyboard layouts you can edit the controls in conf/config all keys start with a _

exe in under /build
Windows Only!

Would love to add more different enemies and a better rooms, more like the binding of isaac, but time got the better of me :(

P.s ☃

Controls were a little strange, found myself only holding down the forward button (might be better if the directions for strafing/moving weren't relative to player direction). Fun little game, awesome job on the stats/level system. This is the most developed audio I've seen so far.

Kinda cool game. Troubles with the controls though.

Nice! The controls are a bit troublesome, though...

The music is really nice, but the controlls are kind of weird. They would feel better if WASD would move the player over the field without relation to the direction he is facing.

Though the controls were a bit awkward I actually enjoyed that so much! Loved the sounds by the way!

The controlls need to change. The way they are done right now i find it almost impossible to play. Although the screenshaking every time i hit a wall is very disturbing. This needs some more tweaking although there`s a base!

It would be better to control if have kept the movement independent of the aiming.

C... :o
Many features, interesting mechanics, especially the controls. I needed time to get used to them, well to be honest, I didn't get used to them. :P
Yes... It could use some polishing.
Music? Wow that's really nice!
Theme implementing wasn't really unique, like most games around here.
Well done!

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.
