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

Fun, but easy

Lets be honest, it was a sword. That said, I had a lot of fun playing it and the boss fight at the end was great.

Very fun. More enemy types would have made it more interesting, like enemies that throw things. Also, like one of the other commenters mentioned, the unconventional weapon doesn't affect the game play at all.

I knew that celery in the back of the fridge would have a use some day! The Carrot King was excellent. Enjoyed playing this.

I highly enjoyed this one! The game mechanics flows on very nicely. I would happily have played more levels. It feels like you have a lot of tools here to build a more extensive game.

Another thought, the never-ending stream of monsters at the last screen could easily be converted to survival mode :)

Nice music! Love ninjas!

Short but fun. And a bit too easy ;D Having a survival mode at the end is an interesting idea, too. Also notable that you implemented a boss. There are not many entries with a boss fight!

Very fun little platformer! Might have looked slightly better if the textures weren't antialiased but not a big deal.

Apr 22, 2015 @ 1:51am

Nice work! I was very impressed by the boss fight. Graphics and audio could use some work, but overall a fun, quick game!

TAKE THAT YA BIG OL CARROT.

Simple, but good. I really liked both the music and the boss. :D

Apr 22, 2015 @ 2:10am

Thumbs up for the celery sword animation :D A suggestion for next time might be to be a bit more creative with the theme. Embrace the theme! Anyway, grats on a solid entry for a js game.

I liked the concept but the final boss was too easy but other than that good game.

Theme was not that apparent. fun to play!, graphics could be a little better.

Theme was not that apparent. fun to play!, graphics could be a little better. Good audio and a nice sound track.

Samurai was not that apparent.

Nice little action platformer. Killing enemies lacks a bit of feedback (which incidentally the crates do have), but otherwise it's smooth and clean. Level design is pretty good. Good job!

I had more fun than expected. Nice work.

This was a very fun little game! I really enjoyed the "Super Mario Brothers" feel I got from it, especially since it involves a weapon (which I've always wanted in SMB rather than jumping on things). I especially enjoy the carrot boss at the end.

The only thing I found a little cumbersome was your choice on the jump buttons. I found using A or Up Arrow to be a little awkward when jumping, maybe having the Shift keys as the jump button would have helped? That being said, I think it's mostly personal preference.

Great job overall!

Well, that is definitely a fun game to play! Ninjas vs carrots ... Sounds like a concept ;)

I like the good old NES feeling and you have anest tileset there.

Keep it on!

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.
