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:

chrome://flags/#enable-npapi

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

Overall pretty solid. But the lack of a goal made it feel a bit pointless.

Looks really fun, but I'm on OS X, please ad web version! :)

Could have some other tasks to be done, but very nice for your first ludum!

The lack of a goal is definitely a problem, but using coins rapid fire was so fun that it kept me playing.

The Web link is just leading to a download of the html file. You'll want to put it in your Dropbox' public folder to make it accessible, or use another host.

Sweet game with cute graphics and gameplay that ramps up in difficulty. There are lots of little details to love in this game, like the little coin-spray animation when enemies die. The goal of the game wasn't immediately clear to me but when the giant red coins started attacking me I understood. GAH! If I could give you a suggestion, it would be to add a score to the game (like time elapsed = score) so that the player has a reason to replay the game. Nice work! (Played on OSX)

Does the slingshot make any difference to the single hand weapon? What are those money ghost that are super tough? The game mechanic is a nice idea, but I think endless survival games lack diversity.

Interesting ideas can be collected and threw coins.

Changed the web version to another location, hope it works

The hand and slingshot doesn't have any different other than it's speed. You'd maybe want to use hand so that the coin doesn't travel too far and despawn before you have the chance to pick it up ^^

Thanks for playing!

The hurt animation with coin dropping reminds me the old sonic game, and the floating skill by throwing money is also creative! You did a good job! :D

Nice game, a coin mechanic that could be more explored in the future. The abusive spawn of blobs and those giant bankrupt balls made the game far more difficult. Collisions might be to polish.

The basic idea seemed pretty sound. It might have been nice if there was a scoring system of some kind. Also, the red coins pretty much meant instant death (seemed kind of unfair).

Quite OK game but the respawn was annoying.

May 20, 2015 @ 1:59pm

Cool concept, did not like the rate of respawn on enemies. I included it in part 11 of my Ludum Dare 32 compilation video series, if you would like to take a look :) http://youtu.be/ArGc_dQ-3Lc

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 (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.

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.
