Star Driller Ultra

by Omiya Games - Compo Entry

Drill through space and destroy your enemies to claim yourself as the king of the galaxy! Star Driller Ultra is a Star Fox-inspired space combat game where your play as a neon-colored drill to obliterate evil space ships.

Xbox 360 controller supported!

Controls (Keyboard):
* WASD or Arrow keys to move
* Hold Space to drill (this uses fuel)
* Q & E or Z & X to change targets
* Esc or P to pause

Controls (Xbox 360):
* Left Control Stick to move
* Hold A to drill (this uses fuel)
* Right or Left Shoulder Buttons to change targets
* Start to pause (menu has to be navigated by mouse)

Psst! I also made a Jam game!

== Change Log ==

Version 2: made the credits unlocked by default. Changed the hints and controls text to provide more information, early on.

Version 3: removed the problematic graphic qualities, Fast & Fastest, as they cause the target reticule to disappear. Removing any web-builds, as they also don't display the target reticule. No other changes were made.

I'm working on a WebGL build currently, but it may not make it by Compo's submission time. In the meantime, enjoy the executable for all major Operating Systems.

Omiya Games says ...
Apr 20, 2015 @ 1:57am

OK, got the build up. I don't know why the audio sucks. For now, I recommend judging the executables, as they just work.

This *really* came together quite nicely. I love the psychedelic wire-frame graphic style. It works especially well with the player ship when it's drilling - the spiral effect is really pretty.
The camera also works very well. I like that it automatically locks onto the next target so that you can focus on always closing distance between your next target and dodging missiles.

allanolivei says ...
Apr 20, 2015 @ 3:02am

The graphics is perfect, but I prefer it without the auto target.

Apr 20, 2015 @ 4:02am

This was awesome. I didn't feel that it hit the theme quite as it should, but otherwise, this is an awesome piece of work.

Omiya Games says ...
Apr 20, 2015 @ 4:05am

@taylor.smithgg Good point. The idea, at the very least, was "you are the weapon," which I thought was unconventional. Which was probably a poor interpretation.

Neonlare says ...
Apr 20, 2015 @ 4:09am

This is amazing. the flair and style is insane, whilst the theme is a lil weak (it's still unconventional, so that's fine by me) the rest of this is absolutely amazing in terms of presentation and style. One of my favourites so far. Incredible stuff for 48 hours.

Birke says ...
Apr 20, 2015 @ 4:12am

Wow very pretty game. A bit hard to tell what is going on from time to time and it feels like using the arrow keys is not really necessary since you can just switch targets to avoid projectiles but overall solid entry. It would have been nice if the menus was navigated with the keyboard since that's what the game is being controlled with.

tppr2046 says ...
Apr 20, 2015 @ 4:13am

Interesting!! Good idea!

Lynx says ...
Apr 20, 2015 @ 4:17am

Well done! Just well done!
I could never even begin to possibly dream of making something like this.

Very challenging on trying to focus on where everything's coming from, where I'm supposed to go. A mini-map might help that.

Just...just...just... wow.

mtanton says ...
Apr 20, 2015 @ 4:20am

Super awesome game! Love the aesthetic. It's nice to see a unity game that takes a different approach to graphics.

GhostBomb says ...
Apr 20, 2015 @ 5:12am

Really dazzling aesthetic, if not particularly practical. I think this game could make for a pretty thrilling arcade game if you just went for broke and made the player go dizzyingly fast all the time. Really enjoyed just messing around.

From Smiling says ...
Apr 20, 2015 @ 5:49am

Plays and looks very very stylishly! Also very cool and colourful. I feel there's a bit of spacial information that's very chaotic though, instead of compelling?

stoarch says ...
Apr 20, 2015 @ 5:54am

Interesting game. Minimap will be helpful.

nicotuason says ...
Apr 20, 2015 @ 7:09am

Takes a white to get used to the controls, but after that it's fun to play! Love the stylish design and colors of the enemies.

DragonXVI says ...
Apr 20, 2015 @ 9:46am

Gorgeous presentation, controls and view are a little odd but y'get used to them. Gameplay's fairly simple and some of the enemy types add a good bit of variety. Nice work!

Apr 20, 2015 @ 9:31pm

This project has an amazing aesthetic, but the gameplay seems to me too confusing so as to be enjoyable - my point of view. However it's a good work for this LD32. Thank you ++

Lyje says ...
Apr 20, 2015 @ 9:50pm

Graphics and aesthetics are awesome! Nice idea, but I didn't really feel in control of the ship. Perhaps the arcade idea was taken a bit far in that sense compared to giving the player more control?

ChrisGaudino says ...
Apr 21, 2015 @ 1:02am

Gorgeous effects, but sometimes they're so dense that its very difficult to make out exactly what is happening.

graebor says ...
Apr 21, 2015 @ 1:17am

Nice, very stylish. Wish the menus and popups between levels had controller support too though.

AtomicVikings says ...
Apr 21, 2015 @ 4:57pm

A really nice game. Was a big fun to play that game. Really awesome.

BeardoGames says ...
Apr 21, 2015 @ 7:06pm

Wowee, that was a blast! It looks and sounds fantastic, and the gameplay brings to mind twitchy older arcade games, but with a 3D perspective. Really, really enjoyable!

Apr 21, 2015 @ 8:23pm

Really nice looking, and neat combat. Well done. :)

DarkMeatGames says ...
Apr 21, 2015 @ 11:41pm

Really beautiful and well polished graphics, audio, and gameplay. I felt a bit overwhelmed starting out, and took a while to figure out the controls/goal. Slowing down the introduction of new mechanics would really help. Seriously nice job for the compo, very highly polished and fun.

Os_Reboot says ...
Apr 22, 2015 @ 3:29am

Clever mechanic, smooth gameplay, a blast overall!

Bashabookoos says ...
Apr 22, 2015 @ 7:42pm

Great design! Nice audio and visuals, reminds me of some old space piloting games. I really like the alternating pitches of when your fuel is depleted. One problem I had, was the words for who your target locked onto is slower than the camera.

Simon says ...
Apr 22, 2015 @ 8:00pm

This is really awesome. Beautiful and a great mood it made me feel something close to nostalgia I think. Very well done!

puppetmaster says ...
Apr 22, 2015 @ 8:27pm

+ graphics style
+ level selection
- to much sound-fx

Well done!!

Headmade says ...
Apr 22, 2015 @ 8:28pm

Interesting concept. I played it basically as a one button game (using only space and an occasional target change). It worked well that way. I don't know why i didn't like moving with WASD.
I really would have preferred if after destroying a target the closest one would be picked next but that is a minor gripe with an otherwise exquisite entry. Very impressive what you managed to accomplish in such a short time frame.

DKoding says ...
Apr 22, 2015 @ 8:35pm

cool graphics. Smooth gameplay albeit a little confusing at times. Love the effects. Great entry.

sputnik says ...
Apr 22, 2015 @ 8:39pm

Awesome graphics and core mechanics! The audio is wierd though.

Apr 22, 2015 @ 9:22pm

Awesome job for 48 hours! The graphics are really great, and the audio is nice as well. It was pretty fun, too, although it was practically impossible to avoid the bullets coming in from all directions. Maybe tone the action down a bit?

Frenchie says ...
Apr 23, 2015 @ 2:25am

Really beautiful game! Had fun playing it. Wasn't a huge fan of the auto-target either (especially switching targets) but everything else was great!

ajopart says ...
Apr 23, 2015 @ 9:05am

Graphically speeking, it's wondeful. But I hardly see the link with the theme. Camera works perfect, it's smooth, it's long. Nice game !

tmpxyz says ...

nice work!

Dejvo says ...
Apr 23, 2015 @ 2:59pm

This game is fenomenal!!! superb graphics, fun gameplay, fenomenal music. one side note, it's a bit hectic and a lot of times, you'll find youself not knowing what are you doing and just mashing space. meybe put a camera a bit more to the back ;). other than that, fantastic work

dydx says ...
Apr 23, 2015 @ 3:06pm

Sweet graphics, cool music, fun gameplay! This game rocks!

chromebookbob says ...
Apr 23, 2015 @ 5:35pm

Pretty game, I like the music. Well done!

Taldius says ...
Apr 24, 2015 @ 1:34am

First, the game looks really good, I love the geometry type art style and help really to understand everything. The mechanics are good also. The only problem was the fix camera behind the spaceship, it gets really frustrating in the last levels when the ship starts rotating everywhere and you can't follow the action or the current target. Maybe use the second stick to change a little the angle of the camera could have helped.
But despite that, the game was really good and I had a lot of fun playing it!

Pixel Heart says ...
Apr 24, 2015 @ 2:56pm

Graphic is simply AMAZING!!
I found it tricky at first but it became bore and more natural as I played.
Very well done!

rnlf says ...
Apr 24, 2015 @ 6:48pm

This is a really unique and really great game! I made it to stage 8, but was unable to finish it due to my only negative remark about this game: selecting the target to lock on is next to impossible and you only see what kind of target you have selected when the palyer ship turns towards it. Getting out of the danger zone with heavy fire is almost impossible. My suggestion would be to allow free flight and use a button to lock onto the enemy closest to the center of screen.

But besides that: I loved this game! It looks really, really cool, with it's very unique elements, the audio is very good, the gameplay idea is great, was is the the use of the theme.

Very good work!

PixelMind says ...
Apr 24, 2015 @ 7:44pm

Very good arcade game. Especially for a 48h entry. Great graphics and gameplay. Many 5* from me.

Andrea says ...
Apr 24, 2015 @ 8:16pm

Great game, very nicely made, though I feel like we don't have many choices when it comes to moving across the galaxy. Dodging for example seems to be unnecessarly difficult.
It got frustrating on stage 8, but I might try again later when I'm less angry :D
Great work!

This was really good. I like it.

TheMeorch says ...
Apr 24, 2015 @ 10:58pm

Stunning visuals, aesthetically and technically. It can be difficult to understand exactly what is happening from moment to moment, but all in all this is just amazing work, especially for the Compo.

coderitual says ...
Apr 25, 2015 @ 12:22am

Superb! Graphics style is just perfect. Gameplay could be more polished though :)

Gunzil says ...
Apr 25, 2015 @ 5:13am

The visuals are really good, they were some of the best I've seen so far out of the entries I've played, especially for a compo entry.

I think switching between targeted enemies and constantly moving toward them is an interesting control scheme, but without any extra interaction beyond pressing A to boost its a little simplistic. If it were possible to have a better perspective of what else is happening beyond what you're looking at there could be some strategy where you can target different enemies to move around the area and herd guys chasing you, but as it stands it was a bit too random for me. I couldn't really see anything and just relied on my reactions to boost at the right times to not take damage.

A playthrough video from my stream is forthcoming :)

bvanschooten says ...
Apr 25, 2015 @ 10:35am

That was a really interesting experience. Presentation is really great and the gameplay feels original. I found it confusing though, in particular the location of objects is not clear much of the time.

hexagore says ...
Apr 25, 2015 @ 3:21pm

There's not been enough of this style of graphics this Ludum Dare so was really pleased to see this. I felt a bit detached from the actual gameplay itself, that fuel tank is far too small :P. Still, this was entertaining :)

Apr 25, 2015 @ 11:25pm

Camera could use some work, it was hard to see what going on. It might be cool, to have a laser or something to take down the enemies, but other than that pretty solid game.

steboots says ...
Apr 26, 2015 @ 12:23pm

This is one of the most beautiful fun games I've played for ld. It's hard to believe this was made for compo. For me, this defines what I'd aim for.

elpaulo says ...
Apr 26, 2015 @ 5:24pm

Crazy good game ! Smooth gameplay and great mechanics.

MrShoestore says ...
Apr 27, 2015 @ 12:46am

i love the vfx work on this. something about the music though, it sounded like 2 songs playing at once. asides from that it's a very nice game, but it took me a bit to really grasp what was happening.

aeveis says ...
Apr 27, 2015 @ 6:59am

Very nice particles! I beat the game. The auto targeting was okay, except it usually didn't target what I wanted and I ended up spamming the next target key. I think maybe a minimap would have been nice just to know where the enemies were spatially. Otherwise pretty polished, good job!

TyrusPeace says ...
Apr 27, 2015 @ 3:22pm

I get that you wish the player was more in control of the lock-on mechanics, but your super-simplified controls and UI here did give us all an interesting experiment in a fast-paced space shooter controlled only with wasd.

I think you did a good job making a fun experiment in 48 hours here.

Omiya Games says ...
Apr 27, 2015 @ 6:36pm

Thanks, I really appreciate that feedback! I've always tried to innovate on the games I make whenever I can. Hearing that you liked the experiment a lot really makes me happy.

klianc09 says ...
Apr 27, 2015 @ 9:23pm

I think, this would be really f***** awesome with 6DOF movement and manual lock-on to whatever is in front of you.
The way it currently auto-locks on (arbitrary) enemies is rather frustrating, it almost always means a 180-degree turn-around after a kill during which the camera just takes like forever to reposition itself correctly, to see something again. Most of the time it's easier killing enemies "on the fly" to a far more distant enemy...

As you said in your post-mortem: awesome graphics and polish/juice/feel, but has that major flaw that just annoys...

Still, having that moment where the whole screen is full of flashy bullets/lights and you are like "WTF is happening"... that's just awesome.

sararyCow says ...
Apr 27, 2015 @ 9:28pm

Very good game! It has a lot of flare with an interesting gameplay.

Anikki says ...
Apr 27, 2015 @ 9:33pm

Feels very smooth, yet I had no idea what was going on for quite a while.

Apr 27, 2015 @ 9:34pm

Very well made for 48hours. Good job!

clegamecoop says ...
Apr 27, 2015 @ 10:31pm

I actually enjoyed playing it. I got to level 10. I enjoyed all the pretty colors and particle effects. xD It was fun and easy to pick up plus I could use the controller which was a plus. The sound effects and could've been a little better, but still a pretty fun game.

defacid says ...
Apr 27, 2015 @ 11:05pm

Excellent job, Taro! I thought that it kind of became a bullet-hell after you beat the first couple of levels, and that's not my sort of thing. It was also slightly confusing with everything moving around - I know that it's color coded, but though visually attractive, it was pretty hard for my eyes to separate targets, from enemies, from bullets.

Again, besides my personal preferences, GREAT JOB!

broknecho says ...
Apr 28, 2015 @ 12:50am

The targeting system made this feel like a rail shooter in open space! That is really cool. Neat execution.

Control felt really good too. Hard to see bullets coming in from behind you but overall everything felt really tight.

Great Job!

Saker Games says ...
Apr 28, 2015 @ 6:44am

Beautiful and fun game. Congrats! :)

This was so much fun! But damn it got hard! My hands are sweaty now.

BIZM says ...
Apr 30, 2015 @ 3:54am

Cool game! Very impressive visuals and audio! The mechanics are solid, but the controls were a little difficult to get used to.

BIZM says ...
Apr 30, 2015 @ 3:55am

Just found out you also made a jam game. WHAAAAT?

alvivar says ...
Apr 30, 2015 @ 10:52am

Love it! Really fun, played it several times.

The auto target was really cool when you hit several objects in chained, nevertheless, it would be interesting an option to deactivate it and fly free!

Solid entry (y)

Xanjos says ...
Apr 30, 2015 @ 5:59pm

Visually this game is absolutely stunning. It starts off a bit slow but by the time you get to level 7, it becomes so intense it gets a lot harder to keep track of things (especially since there's no minimap/radar of some sort).

May 1, 2015 @ 6:35am

Wow incredible! super satisfying to get a chain! maybe add a multiplier? the only problem is the laser sometimes get in the way of the camera.

Knowledge says ...
May 1, 2015 @ 3:54pm

It is a fun game to play. Unfortunately, the waepons don't seem all taht unconventional. the graphics are a bit confusing (for me). Don't think this game is bad, as i had a great expirience playing it.

Omiya Games says ...
May 1, 2015 @ 10:49pm

Yeah, I did indeed take the extra challenge to take both, though the latter more for boredom. Glad you enjoyed this game!

jhell says ...
May 2, 2015 @ 1:28pm

Very well-made graphically, the mood is perfect with the music and all. The beginning of levels tend to be difficult and then it quickly decreases, until the end where you just spend time chasing the blue/green ones.

The controls get some time to get used to but then they work. An option to disable auto-targeting would've been cool :)

Crowbeak says ...
May 3, 2015 @ 1:27am

I like this a lot, but the fact that it's just in 3D space with targets chosen seemingly at random and nothing in the background to help you orient yourself is rather confusing.

RyanNielson says ...
May 3, 2015 @ 6:31pm

Great work! Nice that you have Xbox controller support! You should add an option for inverted Y axis :)

flipanda says ...
May 3, 2015 @ 9:28pm

great job on the game! love the added xbox controller support. but its the triggers that switched targets for me and not the shoulder buttons.

NightShadow0 says ...
May 4, 2015 @ 1:24pm

This is awesome! I felt a little overwhelmed, perhaps because i've never actually played Star Fox, but had a lot of fun regardless. I also felt myself wanting a "Combo!" popup to appear whenever i got more than one enemy in a single thrust, but that's just a silly observation. Impressive amount of content, too. Great work!

NaKolenke says ...
May 5, 2015 @ 8:52am

The main problem of the game is that it is turning into indistinct colorful mess, which is almost impossible to navigate through on the last couple of levels.
And, still, it's a really good entry! Well done!

sP0CkEr2 says ...
May 6, 2015 @ 3:49am

visually stunning - but also confusing at times - great idea for the theme - nice game

Beautiful stuff. Really good use of lighting. Great arcade feel to the game.

sorlok says ...
May 10, 2015 @ 10:37pm

Very fun! Zipping around in the starship was great! The counter to indicate distance was helpful, but some more feedback might have helped (often the ship obscured the enemies).

tummyache says ...
May 10, 2015 @ 11:51pm

The graphics make it a little hard to tell what's happening, although they are absolutely gorgeous. The music and audio fit really nicely and I had a lot of fun with it. Overall it's really really good.

May 11, 2015 @ 12:35am

cool and pretty eye-candy entry! the audio also adds to the game. Auto target is a bit annoying, as the next target could be near the actual target. To sum up, love this one!

Null DIES says ...
May 11, 2015 @ 1:07am

This is AMAZING! Definitely the most fun I've had playing a LD32 entry :)
BTW it took me about 50 minutes to get through the levels!
It's sometimes very confusing/overwhelming but that's totally fine by me, once you get "in the zone" it becomes manageable :)
It might be better though if you increase the field of view a little bit and/or make the camera slightly further from the player (so I can see more of what's going on).
Something I struggled with was how I change the target, it seemed that it goes through a pre-arranged list and not depending on where things are relative to me, which made it very hard to find an asteroid when I'm low on health and trying to escape the mayhem :D

Oh and I always love it when people come out with new ways to show the Credits :)

Larzan says ...
May 11, 2015 @ 8:33am

Beautiful, a bit difficult to control and overal confusing to me, but thats maybe a personal thing.

Nice game, amazing work for 48 hours!

Forlorn79 says ...
May 11, 2015 @ 11:05pm

This game gets really hard at level 6 and again at 8. I'd like a sound effect for going in reverse, and for filling up when you haven't drained. I was able to beat the game, but it took a long time on the last levels, because I couldn't easily target asteroids or the closest object. Maybe having optional targeting and more buttons for different targets. I really love the audio, and the overall look and feel was good. I hope you keep working on it!

Dorgam says ...
May 11, 2015 @ 11:14pm

One of the longest games I played here!
It kept me going tell the end although it was super hard. I would really love to play more of this on my mobile phone. Keep it up :)

nihilaleph says ...
May 12, 2015 @ 12:59am

Won't have time to play all the game before the time ends, but what I was able to play, pretty neat and beautiful game!

Mini Submission FAQ

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.

CAN I ENTER BOTH EVENTS?: You should pick 1 event, whichever you think it’ll do better in. If the idea is strong, and everything plays well enough, you can go Compo. If you’re a perfectionist, and would prefer people to play a more polished game, do the Jam. Historically, more games are entered in the Compo, but with more people and more time, Jam games have the potential to be better (that doesn’t mean they are). Many solo participants do enter the Jam.

If you made 2 games, unfortunately, the website doesn’t support multiple submissions per user. To submit your 2nd game, you will have to make a 2nd account. Only do this if you made 2 games. Alternatively, if one game is better than the other, then consider just entering the better game.

CAN I KEEP WORKING UNTIL THE DEADLINE?: Yes! Immediately after the 48 or 72 hours, we do something called Submission Hour. As the name suggests, it’s an extra hour for you to package, upload, and submit your games. If there were catastrophic issues trying submitting your game, or you misunderstood how submissions work, that’s okay. It happens. We’re flexible. If you need advice, check with the folks on IRC. If you need an admin, get in touch.

CAN I KEEP WORKING ON MY GAME?: Oh definitely! You should! But for the sake of judging, keep the Compo or Jam version around. You can include a link to the Post-Compo/Post-Jam version of your game on your games page, but sure your main links are the original version.

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 at least 20 games to improve your visibility (Coolness).

MY GAME CRASHES, IS UNBEATABLE, OR I MADE A TYPO: We allow you to fix crashes, win condition, or tiny bugs after the deadline. In a sense, this is like “porting” to support more players. We leave this open to interpretation, but generally speaking your game should be identical to the game you submitted. No new features, just fixing mistakes you should have caught had you been better rested.

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.

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.
