Ludum Dare 31 — December 5th-8th, 2014 — Theme: Entire Game on One Screen

SWAT

by Garris - Compo Entry

It's your birthday and you got a cake! Don't let the bugs get your cake. Move the window screen to block incoming bugs.

Move with WASD or ZQSD

Right click to pick up/place screen

Left click while not holding the screen to use your flimsy fly-swatter. It'll break pretty quickly.

Careful not to let the bees sting you!

Great, it's fun, challenging and has an original concept. However, it's missing a Pause button, and I don't understand the character design, is that some kind of hat? :)

Seems at first like the best tactic is to just carry the screen with you like a shield, but you did time the bug speeds well so that you can see simultaneous arrivals moments before they happen, which forces you to drop the screen and switch to the swatter.

Hi there. Like the idea, but seems to get too hard too quickly - maybe two screens at first ? Liked the music also. 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.
