Not on my watch!!

by Shiskatchegg - Jam Entry

You are the guard in a post-apocaliptyc lab. Your job is to prevent zombies from getting in!

Push the "kill" button in the left corner to drop the incoming boxed anvils over your guests.

Your boss values efficiency, you just have 70 seconds to do your job!

Press escape to exit during the game.

We are two computer science students, interested in videogame development, this is our first game ever (at least, the first completed)

I could not figure out how to do anything! What's the "kill" button?

You have to push the "kill" button on the corner in the left in order to drop the anvils.

It's very addictive, it took me a few seconds to realise the boxes dropped the anvil, but after that, it was really fun to play.

Hm... Why all the room moves with the crate. I makes me sick.
Anvils can only kill one zombie at a time, even when in groups, it was so frustrating.
Maybe I missed something ?

What resolution does this need to be set to? i tried a couple, but the kill button only shows a small sliver of it on the screen, and its real hard to click. and the spinning room makes everything very confusing. ludum dare is a great way to learn game development though. its how i learned pretty much. nothing like a short deadline

This game suffers from some resolution problems. It looks like you hard coded in some values and it gets all messed up whenever you play it at resolutions different than what you wrote it at. The default resolution doesn't show the kill button and if you play it at a higher resolution you lose the game when the zombies are about 2/3 of the way across the screen.

This is a good first attempt. Fighting with multiple resolutions is a challenge for any game developer, but this shows real potential. The fact that you were able to put this together is great. Just keep making games and you'll get better!

Resolution problems, a bit boring (add more stuff to do), and imo too punishing if you miss.

Its hard to play, but it makes sense and is kinda entertaining.

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.
