Tight Fight

by Ciro Continisio - Compo Entry

How tight can you fight? Things get quite tight when the entire game is on one screen!

Destroy as many robots as possible and get the highest score before they destroy you!

Xbox pad:
Movement - Stick
Start game - START
Shoot - X
Jump - A
Drop Bomb - B

Movement - Arrows or A/D
Start game - Enter
Shoot - X or N
Jump - Space or Z
Drop Bomb - C or M

Tip: Score more points by destroying the hatches, and getting the shards dropped by the robots!

I absolutely love the level of polish in this entry. A simple, yet very playable, platform action that could easily suit multiplayer (both co-op and 1-vs-1, or even an hybrid between the two, which could be awesome)!

Not bad, with little adjustements and multiplayer it will be a great game!

I want to play but I don't have an Xbox controller :( It looks really cool so I will vote for graphics in the meantime and see if my lady's uncle will lend me his controller in a few days (yes I know you really really wanted to be informed on my family's issue so here I am telling you :D).

Added the support for a keyboard, on all platforms (should work on Linux too)!!

For a Linux executable, head here:

Sorry I had to change the download link for the Linux build. This should work:

THIS IS REALLY COOL! Definitely the jam game I played longer for now (along with "birdsong"): great fun, yesyes, I bow to that. And I'm shouting because those damn robots blew my mind *_*

Very simple and neat and very polished. The physics are just adorable!

Awesome game! Controls are super smooth, and the frenetic mayhem is tons of fun. I love the little touches, like the start text becoming an actual part of the scene. Great work!

I like the arcade style of the game, cool art and funny gameplay ¡Nice job!

Love the graphics, cool game! I Included it in part 10 of my Ludum Dare 31 compilation video series, if you would like to check it out :)

really impressive! I love that the arena doesn't reset when you start over. Makes each new try feel just a little bit different, and it's cool to feel like you had an influence over the arena you fight on, as opposed to just letting a random number generator do all the work.
I have to note, though, that my goal wasn't immediately obvious until I read the submission page. Maybe adding a couple of blinking arrows pointing at the hatches would help to make them a more obvious target?

I like the look and the polish but i wasn't very motivated to keep playing

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.
