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

Deadly Roads

by pythong - Jam Entry

DEADLY ROADS!

Simple mix of Worms and Crossy Road (and that game with the unicorn gun, I forgot it's name)

Since I'm using freesound.org, I'm entering this game as JAM entry. Sorry folks, no source code ;) Maybe I'll upload sth if you ask me reaaaaly nice ;)

And if you're wondering, where the unconventional weapon is: You are attacked by them! Lots of them! What's more unconventional than being killed by unicorn poop?

The game looks good for sure. Enjoyable to play, it’s the kind of thing I could see myself playing for hours on a phone.

Nicely polished, now sell a million dollars of unlockable characters :)

Apr 20, 2015 @ 6:11pm

This game is awesome! :D When i downloaded it, i thought it would be a simple crossy roads clone, but it isn't true. It is based on crossy roads, but much more funny. I like the different types of enemies. And the graphics are fantastic too, especially that rainbow-pooping unicorn. :D

I made a mad dash forward until I got hit by a grandma after a close shave with a banana.

Heavily Crossy Road inspired, but with totally different moving "stuff". I like :)

Very cool! Very much like Frogger on LSD :P Had fun with this one! Great art style as well, it was all very well put together.

Apr 21, 2015 @ 4:14pm

The jump sound got a little annoying to the end and one time I got to what looked like an impossible unicorn poop section but other than that it was really simple and fun. Really good little time waster! Fantastic stuff.

Wasn't able to play it, I'm on a MacBookPro OSX, ran using Firefox. Just a white screen.

Crossy Road clone but hey, everything here is clone of something :) Beside this well done

Nice concept, a little too much inspired on crossy roads though but the new type of obstacles are really cool. Btw i like the hard games, keep working on it and you'll have a great product.

Nice voxel stuff, well done characters, great overall feel :) Well done!

Apr 22, 2015 @ 5:58pm

A really fun, simple game. Liked the random characters. Sound effects got a little annoying though.

Loved the graphics and feel of this. It's fun!

Apr 25, 2015 @ 6:09pm

I love Crossy Road and I love this game. Lots of fun, good pairing of sound + graphics + mechanic.

I like that graphics, enemies are funny, that game have really good feeling. Restart should be faster, so after death you could jump right into the game again.

Well... it is Crossy Road meets Worms, stupid as can be, which is funny.

Concerning your comment on my game: I just tried it in Firefox and it worked. Did you collect the first Cartridge? You can not shoot before that.

These square worms were funny. The game is well balanced, and well addictive too (somewhat similar to crossy roads, a bit from afar)

goerp says ...
Apr 27, 2015 @ 7:23pm

That was a lot of fun!
I really like the graphics, those are great! The gameplay is good too.

It's only missing music.

What did you use to make the graphics?

Very nice game! Cool models, feels nice to play, and you want to get killed by everything at least once ;) - so its a good fit for the theme. (@OhHelloTilman using the account to rate games)

In my previous comment:
The arrows are supposed to be 'good', but the LD site changed it a little bit :P

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.
