Ludum Dare 31 — December 5th-8th, 2014 — Theme: Entire Game on One Screen

Dancefloor

by kebabskal - Jam Entry

Dancefloor is a hectic single screen bullet hell game.

Pick up all the blue boxes and avoid the lasers.
What's your highscore?

Arrows (move) and Space (jump) for keyboards.
You should be able to configure a controller to play with.

If you play in full-screen you might have to use alt+f4(win) cmd+q(osx) to quit.

Made by superstar dreamteam: Hannes (@kebabskal) and Alfred (@veryafe) in a day or so.

[EDIT]
Seems to be problems with the game appearing upside down for some people. Did new builds without the bloom. Might help

It runs upside down on my machine (Win 8.1). I tried both monitors both are upside down. It's only the game play however the intro screen is right side up and the UI elements are at the top but the game field and UI are upside down making it pretty tough.

Not played anything quite like this before, I liked it. Very slick presentation too. :)

This is pretty slick, and lives up to its bullet hell name. The ending is priceless.

Great game ! It reminds me of shmups, and that's a really good thing !

Thank you for your constructive comment on Swotch. I did some minor tweaks as you told me, but still didn't lower the difficulty (:D) !

Hm, not really a fan of bullet-hell games.
Graphics were good, could need some music to set the pace and keep you playing.

I really like this game. It is hard as hell, though. But I liked it the first time I saw it on the blog :-)

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.
