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

A completely playable game but it lacks alot of things. The energy is very limited and the damage that the enemies deal is just pathetic, i stod there and tanked the damage for atleast 30 sec :/
Keep it up and you will get there!

It doesn't 100% fit the theme, since the keyboard is basically just a gun, and like frokes said, you don't take much damage. But other than that, it's a fun little game that's very easy to figure out and bug-free.

PROTIP: Get the Steroid upgrade as soon as possible.

Great little game. I think using faster trolls (like the ones with 20HP) more would make it a bit more challenging.

This was a lot of fun. At first I ran out of energy and was like, "oh, crap", but then I realized I could go back inside and buy more and upgrade. I wanted more when it ended.

I really liked the graphic of the room. Made me want to know more / live in that space ...

But the game itself was, well ... Firstly, the physics - it felt really slow / sluggish. I can't stand it when you jump and the guy floats down like on a leaf. The bullets too sort of came out like ... I dunno, soap bubbles. The enemies too ... Needs to feel real. Solid. At least snappy ... You know, like a bullet comes out and BLASTS the enemies, who fly away, and explode !

i think it was a really neat idea to have the battle screen and a 'lounge' screen seperated.
The really missed some audio. even some basic beat would have done it :)

Pretty fun to play. I really liked how you split up the screens for the shop and the gameplay into two different areas. Overall pretty simple game, and funny concept for the theme. Well done!

The very nice graphics gave me great expectations, but I was a bit disappointed by the lack of content. Of course, this is a game jam, so that is to be expected, but I would have loved to play a little bit longer.

Complete and bug-free, nice. The gameplay gets a little tedious though when all you do is mash the mouse button and there is very little actual danger.

haha nice game, wish you could finish the rest of the scenarios because the home scenario is very nice, good job.

Pretty short game, and it didn't feel really fluent. The jumping was a bit slow and I missed the feedback on the aiming.

The concept was interesting, but it needed more depth to become a really good 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 (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.
