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

6 Pack Vendetta

by PurpleApes - Jam Entry

Turtoi wants revenge from the human with their killer 6pack plastic:

up down : change fire angle
right left: move

Highest Score: 1490 Squeka

We really appreciate comments of any kind! ;)
Control stiff: no time to test it sorry... let's say it add to the difficulty :P
(Shooting left: face left.)
Music disable for now....

A little background Story does not hurt :
In the future, there is no more fish in the sea only shellyfish.
Turtle should be happy but the sudden extinction of chicken leads to the exploitation of turtles for egg production by the human population.
Therefore, Turtoi an adventurous turtle use a deadliest and unconventional weapon, from his prespective, the plastic from 6 pack beer to free and avenge his kinsman....

The six-pack plastic weapon is a cool idea ! I like your background story a lot
I like the sound of ennemies on death

Otehrwise I found it hard and a bit stiff, it would be better to be able to shoot on the left side of the turtle too, and I found the controls a bit weird

The unconventional weapon, the story, and the mood of the game is great!
Aiming might be a little bit frustrating at first glance. That could be improved but anyway you get used to it after a couple of tries

the control feel slippery yet heavy at the same times, it's weird
still quite nice game, the control/targeting indeed need a little bit practice

Challenging entry!

It was a bit hard to move the weapon in time to aim properly..
I do like your story :)

This was very difficult to play on a mac because ctrl + arrows are already used for switching between screens, so I ended up dying as I inadvertently switched from screen to screen. Arrows for aiming was a bit difficult as well.

took me a moment to figure out what was the 6 pack talking about since we dont have it here in my country :P

Apr 21, 2015 @ 4:16pm

My high score was 520. It was somewhat hard to aim and move. felt a little stiff. But overall not bad game :)

Was too stiff for me to properly enjoy... is there a reason why you have so many angles on the weapon? From the first few levels it seems like you only need the 0 and 90 or -90 angles... Enemies on the ground disappear after they hurt you. Theme could have been used better as well...

Good luck!

Finished the game with score 1490.
I think there should be an ending message too instead of just only showing score.

Quite hard to start, too many enemies on the first screen, but it's a fine game when you get used to it. Nice work!

It had decent gameplay, but it also got slightly boring with the repetitive encounters. The sounds were so-so and graphics weren't particularly good. I like how you made multiple levels and there's probably content enough for more (although I only managed to defeat a few levels). I'm not sure it fits the theme well, it feels like a classic arcade game to me.

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.
