Super Dynamite Fighter

by Zettelkasten - Compo Entry

In Super Dynamite Fighter, you have to survive waves of enemies coming at you with only your gun and dynamite.
You can get more dynamite by looting supply crates. Survive as many waves as possible, get as much loot as you can and destroy as many enemies as you are able to!

This game is my first LD game ever, and I was not able to use all the time for making the game. The game is inspired by Super Crate Box, but it's not a clone.

It's a hard but fun game. It crashed sometimes. It can use some polishing too. It takes time to get used to everything, but once you know the game, it's fun. Nice entry.

Nice entry~ It's hard, it fun~ Needs polish but its good on its own. It lags for me a bit since my specs with Java doesn't cooperate well.
This reminds me all too well of Super Crate Box, but I know its not a clone.

Dynamite explosion effect would be cool. I found this game harder than super crate box, its fun.

My high score was 2!! It might be better if you started easier and worked up to being more difficult

It sure was a challenge! But some more polish and it can get better, there's something there!

It hooked me in! I sat and played a for a little while, took me a minute to get adjusted but once I got the hang of it, it was very fun.

Fairly unpolished. Some animations would have been nice, and the sounds were quite obnoxious. Otherwise, a fairly fun entry.

I liked the minimalism thought that the game play felt smooth. I think that the level design needs to be more interesting though.

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.
