Galactic Core 2-D

by daftcube - Compo Entry

Digital Daftopotamian brings to you, Galactic Core 2-D! Galactic-Core 2d is a simple 2-d multiplayer space combat game. Made in 9 hours, this simplistic space shooter can support up to 16 players and has 3 different ships. And all of this happens on only one screen. May the best captains emerge victorious!

-Made using Unity and Photon Unity Networking

--UPDATE: Web Version is now fixed. Thanks for pointing out my error.

Web version doesn't open, tries to download the webpage instead.

If you are using dropbox, just put the two files that Unity makes in your public folder. Right click on the html doc and "copy public link". Thats what you need to share on your entry page :)

Can be difficult to find any other players to play with. Some bots would have been convenient.

OS/X version works for me, but the problem with multiplayer is that you need to have multiple players. Tried a few games but the firing looks strange due to it firing on a single spot instead of a line along that spot...

OS X version doesn't seem to work, just spikes the CPU, and web version just download the html file

Played this game multiplayer with a friend. Was a really fun experience. One of the best games I've played so far.

Was able to open the OS/X version (web version was just a downloadable html file)

Flew around for a little bit, and the controls seemed nice - although wasn't really able to test out flying without another person to play with.

The web download should be fixed. Thank you everyone for the support!

Excellent 2D multiplayer game, just a couple of optimization issues, with the lag of the other player's ship movement, also when you collide with an enemy ship nothing happens? Oh well great effort, thoroughly awesome effort :)

I wasn't able to play multiplayer because there wasn't anyone online, but it looks promising.

Played this with my friend for a couple rounds. Seems like it could be interesting to see with a full 16 players! Fighters are way too slow to be useful, though. Hit feedback would have been very appreciated, because it's hard to tell at the moment whether you actually hit at all.

Thanks everyone! This is my first submission and I worked really hard.

The online works! So cool! Networked Ludum Dare games are always a treat :D

Also, I'm a OS X user (10.9.5), and it worked for me

Bots would have been a big plus for this since I couldn't find anyone to play with. I liked the old school feel. overall 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 ( 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.
