Good work! Nice colors, I like the pinkish, for some reason the game ends when I get to 1400ish, I'am not getting hit (as far as I can see) is there a timer or something on it? More special effects, power-ups etc would have been fun. Maybe there were but It kept ending, before I was dead.

Could I put in a plea for a portable (non-install) version? Call me a neat-freak but I don't like to clutter up my registry with LD games :S

Also I'd really recommend not calling the executable 'Ludum_dare_31.exe' because it becomes indistinguishable from all the others! Call it something like 'DevFrank_Virus0.exe' or something so people can find their way back to your page after playing it ;)

Nice all around. The discoloration of the ship was a nice touch.

It felt like a solid and well made game. The music was sweet but the sound effects got at bit repetitive after a while.
The strongest part of the game was definitely the slick graphics. Great job on the sprites!
Oh, by the way, I was not that fond of having to install the game. I would have preferred just getting a .exe to run.

I love the background art! A nice top down shooter, and the audio was awesome too!

Nice game! I like how the big blue/orange omelette thing breaks up in to smaller ones. I'd have liked a fullscreen mode, since I kept losing the mouse cursor.

Haha, good idea. Nice execution too I must say. I don't know why but this kind of game makes me finish it with really good mood. Congratulations :D

Loved the graphics! I enjoyed the death sfx of the enemies but dislike the music. It was too dancey ahha. Nice job overall!

Good but maybe a little too classic for me.

I dig the art! Also the game is pretty fun. My main feedback is the interface could use a life counter.

Nice music and graphics. Took a minute to figure out that you have to hold down the mouse button to shoot. At first I only clicked to emit single bullets (trying to be economical..) but that didnt work. Maybe you can fire a bullet with the first click or tell the play to hold down to fire?
I like bacteria/virus inspired games. Funny game - good work!

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.
