Congratulation for finishing this Game ! \o/
I liked the fast-paced gameplay with the die and retry aspect of it.

Aside form the fact that i seem to be able to fly, my main cncern is the lack of sound. I think it really missed some sound. Even crappy Sfx would have done the job and an epic music would have been cool.

I also liked to mash my SPACE key like a berserk.

My advice for next time : Take the time to make some sign/Feedback sound !

I think you need to check a few of the rating category boxes.

Dragon wars! Was I blowing kisses at the dragon?

Good difficulty level, but obviously entry is a bit rough around the edges. Still, there's something here. I tried to cheat your game by hiding in the top left corner above the dragon, but you didn't allow that, good job.

best score : 38600
The game is cool but you could improve it with very simple tasks :
- remove bullets once they hit the dragon. make it blink or add an animation on the impact if possible.
- make a score display ingame so we can see our progress.

Huh. Note that the "source" link is actually the windows version. I liked the idea, but the execution left something to be desired. I only found out about the shooting mechanic from reading the comments, and the walking controls feel sticky. Also, when you walk into a wall, your control direction is reversed - e.g, if you hold right and slam into the right wall, you will begin walking left. I'd recommend evaluating the way you handle player movement, because it looks to me like you're using speed variables where just incrementing the x and y values would be more appropriate. (Though I haven't seen the source and can't say for sure.)

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.
