Note: This game was made in 72 hours under the theme "Entire Game on One Screen" for Ludum Dare 31. The game is *very* rough, but is functional to at least some degree and was a successful first Ludum Dare in the sense that a great deal was learned.

I find the premise of the game funny, but had a very VERY hard time playing the game due to the gravity, maybe it was intentional but it was more frustrating than it should have been. Also, sometimes you can shoot yourself if running and jumping, or if standing next to a wall.

There was an enemy that killed another enemy, not sure if intentional but thought you should know.

Cool, like the idea. Getting hang of the controls and movement was a little frustrating but its good. I like! :)

I've seen some games those are very polished but have little gameplay. This game is little polished but has a lot of gameplay! Despite the lack of graphics, I enjoyed playing this game a lot. The idea is interesting and original. Level e is sparse, seems like you found less time for it than for the other levels, which are excellently designed.
This game is so fun I forgive all your bugs. You probably know them by yourself.

It looks to me like you put way too much time into making levels and not enough time polishing. Movement is incredibly slippery, the gun feels like a peashooter, the enemies' shots are very difficult to avoid. Polish.

So I played for a minute by straining my eyes, thinking I was just playing as a pixel. Then I remembered that Space was Zoom, and things were much better. My bad.

Interesting idea, though the character movement made it very difficult

Even though I died a lot from the gravity, the theme interpretation is pretty good.

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.
