Aliens? On Stage?

by Wolfgang_ - Jam Entry

To start the game: Press 'x' once the curtains have rolled back.

Controls:
arrow keys to move
x to jump
z to attack

Recommended to play in a maximized window.

So this is my first attempt ever at Ludum Dare. Needless to say, things didn't go quite as planned. Had some issues making graphics and some issues with collision programming. I'll probably use a physics/collision library next time I try this.

But here it is in all its majesty: Fighting some aliens/robot/things on stage!

Very interesting game. Would have liked to see some kind of restart button so I wouldn't have to refresh every time.

The basic game loop is a good concept, but I found the controls and collisions a bit unintuitive. Congrats on your first entry!

Could see where you going with this, was really broken on my computer though.

The art is really cute! Fun little game. I had much more luck killing aliens when I spawned as the cannon character :)

Great first entry! I loved where you were going with this, although some sound-based feedback would have been helpful. Great job!

I love the variation of the characters and the strange alien-dump truck things. Very wacky! :()

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.
