Random Name Attack

by bnmkt - Compo Entry

Kill all the spaceship with. they want to kill you !

This is my first game and i hope that isn't a complete bullshit :c

if you found any bug or have a suggestion, you can send me a comment or a mail at

Details :

-- what is the black thing on the left corner ? --
Oh, it's a timer, it's only for me and i forgot to delete it before posting my game ..

-- the lazer is useless --
it's the timer fault ! not mine haha, no sorry, i have to add a timer to the gun too ..

-- the control is slow --
i think you're right.

-- Why did i have to wait to long for the ship's spawn ? --
it's random, the spawn is like that :
if 4 number generated randomly are under 80 and X > (50 - user_level ) the ship spawn .. so the chance of spawn at the begining is small.

I'm using :
Adobe flash CS3 && Illustrator CS3 : Graphism
Flash develop : for the code
FL studio && BFXR : For sounds and musics

Thanks for watch my Entry

Great concept. I would have liked a smoother control of the player. and maybe a left click gun and right click lazer instead of shift click :) good job.

Not bad for your first game. The controls are a little clunky and a few times I was waiting for ships to spawn so I had something to shoot at. And it seems you can select the text on the ships, probably shouldn't use a text box like object for something like this. What's the black thing in the corner too?

Fun little game. Damn that undefined name that got to me.

tigerbyte says ...
Dec 8, 2014 @ 4:02am

I agree with sharp911 on the controls. Right click for laser maybe.
It seemed like maybe there was a delay or cooldown on the laser? If that was intentional, maybe a visual indicator for the cooldown would be helpful.

Not a bad first game at all. Hope you learned from it!

Hi ^^
Sharp911 : Thanks you :3
misto423 : The spawn is fully random, i know me too i'm waiting sometimes
daviosmash : haha x)
Tigerbyte : Yes, i've learned so much and i'm a little happy because it's really the first thing i made :3

It was odd to me to control movement with keyboard and fire with mouse. Also, no real clue what the black thing in the corner is? Laser seemed a bit needless, once I learned I could spam click.

Hey, very cool for a first game! I liked playing it. If you're looking for an area to improve: the controls felt a little slow or clunky at times. But overall very nice!

ENDESGA says ...
Dec 8, 2014 @ 4:19am

Interesting game :D love it

Dec 8, 2014 @ 4:41am

Not bad for first game! Keep going and good luck!

Dec 8, 2014 @ 4:45am

Pretty good for a first game!

woodecker says ...
Dec 8, 2014 @ 5:14am

The animations are too slow. Keep going!

Dec 8, 2014 @ 5:14am

Controls were a bit clunky. But it was playable and actually a good little challenge!

Seemed like the enemies got right on top of me very quickly.

Seems like the highscore page wasn't working.

With smother controls and some more variety (power ups, enemies, etc) I can see it being pretty fun!

mintybacon says ...
Dec 8, 2014 @ 5:35am

This is awesome for your first game in 48 hours!

Lynx says ...
Dec 8, 2014 @ 6:06am

Controls for up and down were a bit jumpy (and I forgot you could at one point haha) but the shooting worked to speed and I guess that's what really matters. Fun little game concept, be cool to expand it with power ups and a laser power bar.

indigofiz says ...
Dec 8, 2014 @ 7:51am

As everybody else said, the controls are a little rough. Do continue making games though, congratulations on your first game :D

bnmkt says ...
Dec 8, 2014 @ 8:22am

It's me again, thanks to all. Just to tell you, the site for the score is UP now. I just have to retart the Mysql database.

Aisland says ...
Dec 8, 2014 @ 9:02am

It's a beautiful beginning, keep going

Sh1rogane says ...
Dec 8, 2014 @ 9:36am

It is a good for a first time. Just wish for little smoother controls.

Groydis says ...
Dec 8, 2014 @ 11:01am

Great idea, found the shooting to be a bit clunky, shots missing when they clearly should of hit. I think with some polish you will have a genuine time waster on your hands that will be hard to put down.

GreenyUk says ...
Dec 8, 2014 @ 12:01pm

Solid first attempt at a game. You seem aware of it's flaws so no point reiterating them. Nice work.

dannyhodge says ...
Dec 8, 2014 @ 12:17pm

Fun game! Maybe make the bullets do less damage with slower fire rate, or let the user hold to shoot? Nearly gave me RSI spamming out the bullets :D

pjimmy says ...
Dec 8, 2014 @ 2:41pm

it's nice for a first game, but it's missing a Pause button.

MaesK says ...
Dec 8, 2014 @ 3:05pm

Not bad! Better game name than mine :D I'd like the ship to move more smoothly, when user keeps key pressed, but it's fine. Great work!

Zolkren says ...
Dec 8, 2014 @ 3:40pm

I really liked the graphics.
Cool game.

Dec 8, 2014 @ 4:13pm

Nice graphics - fun element with the names!

OpenGL says ...
Dec 8, 2014 @ 4:19pm

Good enough for first game :) Keep going!

allanolivei says ...
Dec 8, 2014 @ 4:20pm

Do not use selectable text field during game play and controls should be more sensitive. Congratulations for your first game.

Wakka says ...
Dec 8, 2014 @ 5:06pm

Pretty good for your first game, and because of this, I forgive you those bad controls ;-)

ViliX64 says ...
Dec 8, 2014 @ 7:00pm

Nice concept, but you should polish it for the next time :)

Ossi says ...
Dec 8, 2014 @ 7:12pm

I love the idea behind this, and the random names of the enemy ships gives them more personality! Like most others have said, the controls of the movement and firing need some more polish and tweaking and perhaps an increase in the spawn rate would make it more engaging. Great first game though, keep making more games!

Luminar says ...
Dec 8, 2014 @ 7:14pm

Not the greatest, would like something more, but good enough for a first game.

Fanttum says ...
Dec 8, 2014 @ 8:16pm

Yea, kinda riggad, but a good try. Also the sound still plays after you are dead when you fire.

Eponesh says ...
Dec 8, 2014 @ 9:05pm

Interesting mechanics.

March says ...
Dec 8, 2014 @ 11:31pm

Always most important to finish something. It is playable and cool.

Dec 8, 2014 @ 11:34pm

nice job, collision detection doesnt work well, maybe you should make game little bit faster?

rabbit says ...
Dec 8, 2014 @ 11:42pm

Cool idea I guess?

Really slow though. Needs a lot more polish to be great.

DavidErosa says ...
Dec 9, 2014 @ 1:03am

Nice first game. It could be better with some simple effects on explosions (like camera shake or some particles) to add to the experience.

drludos says ...
Dec 9, 2014 @ 1:28am

Nice idea, and very good for a first game!

BKGH says ...
Dec 9, 2014 @ 1:30am

It's a great attempt for a first game!
The controls need to be a little more responsive and seamless, though.

Jupitron says ...
Dec 9, 2014 @ 1:33am

Nice idea, ship needs to move smoother, put some music!!!

KunoNoOni says ...

Really nice game! Very fun to play!

Dec 9, 2014 @ 6:46am

Congrats on your first game ! It's actually not bad at all. The scores at the end is a nice touch ;)

Crosstales says ...
Dec 9, 2014 @ 12:26pm

Nice first game!
It was a bit unclear, when I hit a spaceship with my rockets...

Leaghorn says ...
Dec 9, 2014 @ 1:11pm

good concept, nicegraphics, clumsy controls

spitfire87 says ...
Dec 9, 2014 @ 4:10pm

Good first game!

charlesque says ...
Dec 9, 2014 @ 6:18pm

Not bad for a first game. For improvment, if we can attack at the actual rate, maybe you should add more enemies so the ame will be more dynamic. And try to avoid editable textbox. ^^

hypnoticbytes says ...

Congratulations for your 1st game!!!Keep going!!!

OctoTeam says ...
Dec 9, 2014 @ 8:05pm

Not bad for a first game, keep going!

Dec 9, 2014 @ 11:53pm

Clear and easy concept, clear target, looks pretty good as your first game!

A little bug could be this: when I try to shoot two bullets in row, sometimes (quite often) I see the 2nd one just pass through the space but with no hit sfx.

BaneStar007 says ...
Dec 10, 2014 @ 2:55am

well done for a first game!

trykondev says ...
Dec 10, 2014 @ 3:10am

I like the art, I feel like this game would benefit a lot from a bit more "flash" -- like some kind of explosion instead of the enemies just disappearing. nice game though!

Nokifict says ...
Dec 10, 2014 @ 10:02am

For a first game, it's work pretty great :)
My opinion is that feedback are the most important thing, so your game could win a lot with some "Wave 2 clear" or other stuff like that !
Ps: think of azerty keyboard too !
for a first try, it's cool :)

FergusonTV says ...
Dec 10, 2014 @ 10:08am

The controls lack of reactivity (up/down). Nice game for a first game though

bnmkt says ...
Dec 10, 2014 @ 1:55pm

Nokifict : Hi, i'm belgian so my keyboard is an azerty and at least my choice of keyboard was for qwzerty (can i edit my game now ? )

This is a good learning experience. Ludum Dare is the perfect excuse to learn :) Good job!

Luthwyhn says ...
Dec 10, 2014 @ 3:19pm

Great first entry. I agree with the controls/movement being a bit slow. Also I keep accidentally clicking on the name-boxes which feels a bit awkward. In terms of programmer art your ships look good, and I'm infinitely in love with procedurally/randomly generated content. I look forward to seeing your next entry!

thiaguera says ...
Dec 11, 2014 @ 2:30am

I could be a little bit faster. Keep up the good work.

Warboys says ...
Dec 11, 2014 @ 10:09am

Good job for your first game man, all the comments here say the same stuff I would so just commenting to show support :)

blackmagic says ...
Dec 11, 2014 @ 11:08am

Shooooot ! :)
Don't forget some people don't have QWERTY keyboards ! I have to press down to go up and vice versa :P Makes the game a lot harder, though :)

DevWouter says ...
Dec 11, 2014 @ 12:16pm

For a first attempt it is quite good, but compared to the others it still lacks a lot in polish. I bet that by the next ludum dare you will have improved a lot

apiotrw says ...
Dec 11, 2014 @ 12:34pm

A bit confusing

Demy says ...
Dec 11, 2014 @ 8:36pm

Sometimes enemies have name "undefined" and i believe text fields on ships shouldn't be touchable. May be you should add some scores and other parameters? But i liked enemies with different speed and movement.

Krunoslav says ...
Dec 11, 2014 @ 8:41pm

Nice game for your first time. I hope you keep learning and having fun doing games! It would be a easy control and more options, it is a little repetitive. But good job :)

Dec 11, 2014 @ 11:16pm

Congrats on your first game :)
Needs a bit of polish though

otaviogood says ...
Dec 12, 2014 @ 7:32am

Next time I should read the instructions first. I was trying to figure out what the timer was and died trying to laser enemies. :P

Dec 12, 2014 @ 8:07am

Good job for a first game :) The movement was a bit awkward and it was weird that I could fire in all directions. I expected to shoot straight in this kind of game since I can move up and down. Makes it a bit easy since you can just spam the laser. Pretty fun title :P

Aniscool9 says ...
Dec 12, 2014 @ 9:09am

controls were not so good.....otherwise its fun :)

Great concept

Dec 13, 2014 @ 4:17am

Random names are a nice touch, and I like the background. Maybe next time experiment with new enemies with different motion patterns, like a sine wave. Hope to see you next time!

ynots says ...
Dec 13, 2014 @ 9:04am

pretty good one..

Dec 13, 2014 @ 7:02pm

The names were a nice touch. Next step: Shadow of Mordor!

danidre14 says ...
Dec 14, 2014 @ 12:19am

WOW, really cool! The spamming mobs code you put in became too intense after a while, and, the hardest person's name was undefined! XD
It could have at least had score to it, but I understand level progress when the mobs spawn faster! :D

Poupi says ...

The controls seem a bit stiff but i do like the lock on missiles. :p this is a good entry :D.

Xanjos says ...

Apart from rather obvious shortcomings like the very sluggish controls, the concept itself is actually pretty interesting. Overall, not bad for your first entry.
