Vampire Snowmen Invaders

by Lyxilion - Jam Entry

Hello, I'm Lyxilion, this was my first Ludumdare. I wasn't really inspirated by the theme, so I choose a simple clone of space invaders. I made the game in JavaScript, with the framework "Phaser". The sprites were made with "Paint.NET" and "Photofiltre Studio X". The sounds were made with sfxr.
A friend, Naheufan helped me by making the sprites and I wrote the code. I haven't worked many times with "Phaser" before, so some features are not optimised and the code is not well arranged. But I'm still proud of me for my first time.

In the game, you are Santa and you have to stop 15 waves of vampire snowmen You'll also fight 3 bosses too on waves 5, 10 and 15. And all this with snowballs and gifts dropped by the snowmen that gives you bonus.

Finally, this Lumudare has been a nice experiment, I'll be there for the LD32!
Feel free to leave comments and to give your point of view, Thanks a lot!

Nice! That mechanic is surprisingly fun. What's the green stuff the vampires are throwing at you?

Thanks a lot :) The tree is your life, it shrink when you are hit by a bullet and it grow when you got a life up :)
The red/green/blue stuff is suposed to be drop of blood...

Great take on a classic and well executed.
I like the 'boss' style waves along with the presents that give you buffs. Nice!

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.
