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

A nonspecific-clumsy-bear-celebrity has been having a tough time as of late. The money isn't rolling in like it used to.

After a night of heavy drinking, he wakes up craving a donut.

Experience the experience of throwing bent 'yPhones' like boomerangs at the paparazzi who can ruin your fading career with a singe image.

hit detection is funky

Throwing did not work for me more than half the time unfortunately

I really appreciate the addition of the easy and hard modes. Switching from left to right was a bit slow and figuring out what the yphone was doing was a bit confusing. I really liked the backstory at the beginning (: Overall, nice job!

It's funny, but the background was all black to me, and I had a little hard timeon throwing the yphone backwards. but the game looks very nice.

ps: Laughed of the yphone

The concept was funny, however, the game seemed very slow. I think a background, some music, and a slightly better walk animation would have made a big difference.

A sordid tale outlining the tragic realities of child stardom.

Graphics are cute, but I miss more depth in the game.

With the simple graphics and animation you should have gone all out and make it look like a Game & Watch game. :) It certainly reminded me of one. Great work :)

Pretty cool game, a bit lacking in content, but still pretty cool. Graphics + Humor carry this, I feel.

Good luck!

Interesting idea and concept. Easy to grasp but a bit hard to complete. Eg. a good formula for getting people in to the game.

The hits feel a little off, and movement could do to be smoother, but I love the vector art - looking forward to your next entry!

The controls felt kind of unresponsive.

The aesthetic is great. I like it, but the gameplay seems to me too poor so as to be really enjoyable. There is potential for this entry - maybe using more features or something different. No sounds? Why? Thumbs up ++

The graphics are great, and the story is fun.

A bit silly, but the bold b&w graphic style is nice. Not sure where he's getting this infinite stash of broken phones from! The mechanic of the phone bouncing off an enemy into other enemies is interesting.

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.
