Booty Chaser!

by adamwoolridge - Compo Entry

Booty Chaser! Set sail on the vast seas, entire screen :)

Kill other pirates and claim their booty for points and glory!

I was super late joining in on this one, so I made it in under 3 hours just to submit something :)

Why does the "Web" button download a zip file?

It's really a shame you only had 3 hours, were you studying for the finals? This game is great. Imagine what you could have done if you had more time!

Great game so far, but I would love to see some pirate like background music. Btw, I think the ship collides with the mouse cursor.

Graphics were good. I always liked the sharp polygons look. Sound was annoying though.

The game is fun even when the controls are a bit hard to get (at least for me :P)

This game is really a lot of fun, especially seeing how it was made in just three hours!

Things that might be worth improving on if you want to work with it further: an indication of when gold is going to dissappear, an indication of where new ships are going to appear, making the cursor look less like a gold coin.

A mighty fine showing for the time you had!

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.
