Ludum Dare 32 — April 17th-20th, 2015 — Theme: An Unconventional Weapon

chromenopePSA: As of Chrome 42 (Released April 14th), NPAPI plugins are disabled by default! That means Unity Player, Java, and Silverlight games will not work in the Chrome browser! That said, Flash in the Chrome browser continues to work fine (PPAPI).

To Developers: Consider using HTML5 and WebGL instead. Having troubles with the export? Don’t worry. See Ports below.

To Players: A workaround is to enable NPAPI plugins in your Chrome settings. Click or Copy+Paste this URL in to a tab:


As of September 2015 however, this option will no longer be available.

Other browsers (Firefox, Internet Explorer, Safari) and Flash are unaffected, but FWIW there is no Unity Player or Silverlight for Linux.X

Steve's Adventure

Hello Ludum Dare! This is my second time participating and I had a very limited amount of time to work with this time unfortunently, so the game isn't very actionpacked. It is a simple Platform Jumper game where you need to flee from the explosion of a nuclear bomb, you can win by reaching the green flag at the top of the level!

A - Move left
D - Move right
Spacebar - Jump

Press spacebar twice to doublejump!

Leaving the viewport will teleport the player to the opposite side! Use this ability to overcome obstacles.



Tools Used:

Graphics / Art:
Pickle , AutoTileGen , Adobe Photoshop, Adobe After Effects, PAINT.NET

Game Engine:

Music / SFX:
SFXR, Milkytracker

NOTE: I am sorry if you hate the music, I am by no means a musician.

The concept of runing(jumping) away from a nuke is nice. However the double jump was realy strange. Sometimes you jumped realy far on your second jump and sometimes bearly at all.

That you can double jump is NOT very obvious at all. I was trying all kinds of silly stuff to get even to the third platform. The idea of running against the clock is cool though!

Congratulations on completing the Dare! I will be frank with comments because I think they would be more useful. Difficulty curve could be easier to start with. Penalty for missing jumps is rather high, especially in earlier levels. Double jump physics are a bit counterintuitive. Nuke kills too fast.

The music is annoying after some time, and I find it too hard, the ground is very slippery, but I loved the art and the idea :D

Overall nice, but hard, and it didnt seem like the double jump was the same every time you used it. Good luck though!

The music was pretty bad. Some of the levels were impossible. Here's hoping you do better man.

Nice game, with a cool use of the theme.
The controls (the jump particularly) could be better but overall nice and entertaining!

I liked the art for the character sprite, and the music wasn't bad actually. Nuke passing you was a cool feature. The gameplay mechanics could have been more innovative. Also, not sure that a nuke's really an unconventional weapon.

When I first saw the bomb... Good game.

The double jump was not very responsive, I couldn't get past the first few platforms :/
The music is great, though! :D

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.
