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

The artstyle is great, and i love the idea of shooting myself in the air with toasts! Great!

Really creative, but the explosion and screen shake was giving me a headache by the end. I liked the toaster theme, and the art looks amazing. I'm not going to even ask what the enemies are.

That was a lot of fun. I like the idea of ammo and health being nearly the same thing.

How do you rate a game, I want to rate this

I liked the concept and the game play was nice. I agree with zzForest, the screen shake and explosions was a little much but over all I enjoyed it. Good job!

Neat movement style!

A very fun little game! I liked the camera shake when every time you shoot, and how the sprites for the toaster stretch out a bit when you do certain movements. It's very satisfying and fun to play ^^

Fun to play. Should have gone full breakfast theme, would have loved to see some eggs and bacon. Level design was a bit easy. Graphics are a bit too mario-esque.

I thought I was playing as a t-shirt cannon until I read the title

Nice art. Jumping while moving to one side feels a little janky.

Good game. Recoil as movement is ridiculously fun.

Very good game.
At first it's hard to master the controls.
I like the game play. It's fun... Thanks for sharing.

Apr 20, 2015 @ 4:53am

Cool take on the Mario platformer! :) Quite cool idea with not having "jump" but instead using the cannon. Cheers for the game!

This was a really cool concept. It also made me hungry. I kinda wish there were more levels so I could see just what all the little toaster could do. But hey, you did a great job!

An absolutely stellar concept. The gameplay is very innovative, and the challenges are complex enough that I was scratching my head, but not so much that I couldn't get through it. Graphics, while simple, were well executed. Great job.

The Megaman style graphics even if i loved it, it feels a bit too "ripped-off". The game is great, the control and theme as well, good job

Hi, a nice surprise :). The controls feel a little strange at first but then you get used to it. The "power" feeling when you shoot is really well done.

Awesome. Liked the effects & controls, felt good to interact with.

frokes says ...
Apr 20, 2015 @ 11:54am

Great idea! Graphics are Ok but i think the movment needs some tweaking, don't like the way you keep moving to the sides when you are mid-air.
Other than that, well done!

Good amount of juice on the shooting. Screenshake is maybe a bit too strong, as some of the other said.
Platforming by launching yourself in the air with toast was a bit difficult to get used to, but it wasn't too bad. I tend to overshoot the platforms when they're only a block wide, but that just might be my bad platformer "skill."

repstyle says ...
Apr 20, 2015 @ 1:03pm

Grapics and feedback fx are neat :)

The gameplay is kind of unatural so it's pretty tricky to achieve your goal. I woiuld recomment that you use the mouse to shoot in the direction where the mouse is and then handle movements with WASD. I think that should feel better.

I like the idea !

Hehe. Well this was unexpected. A bit short game, but it was fun regardless. Go toaster!

All the screen shake! Love it.

Apr 20, 2015 @ 5:26pm

It was a nice game, it would be good to have a pause functiuon or a way to quit the game.

Apr 20, 2015 @ 6:34pm

The best game I've come across today. There's really not much for me to criticize here. Except that it's not very innovative. Well done.

Fun and juicy! felt so powerful when gaining new toasts

Zeriver says ...
Apr 20, 2015 @ 8:07pm

Shooting toasts never felt sooo good :)

I really like this shooting effect and how you can perform "air-strikes"

The random aiming was a bit wonky, and I don't like how you don't maintain upward momentum, great level design though!

Great visuals and I had a LOT of fun playing with this.

5 for the theme, it's unusual. The mechanics aren't too bad either, although I would like more crisp.

The toaster idea is clever, would have been super cool is the world was all toast or breakfast related stuff too.

Everybody loves bread! I really enjoyed my playthrough of this even though the controls took a bit to get used to at first. Interesting concept for sure. I did a live stream of it here: http://www.twitch.tv/drathy/c/6585863

Really neat little game.
Having to collect more toast to jump higher is a great idea.
The crazy amount of screen shake did mess a bit with my head though. ;)

Cool game, it's a shme that it's so short. I like the NES feel of the game. cool mechanics

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.
