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

Ally VS Wild !

by LeReveur - Jam Entry

Hello ! That's the first entry of our team (we don't even have a team name), as I was the only one that has experienced the great LD adventure few times before.
This was a little stressing, as we lost most of our time on a good idea but, as always, too huge to be finished before the deadline.
So, yesterday morning, we decided to save what we can and make something else with it, and that is : Ally vs Wild !
It will not be the most astounding game you'll ever played, but at least, it works. And the theme is respected. Approximately.

You can play either with mouse or keyboard, in every case you can't lose, because Ally is a wise child, and a child's good game have only winning rules. But you can try to make the better score after finishing the level three.

Toggle music on/off : M/S
Other buttons : spacebar

Play :
with Keyboard, Arrows + space
with Mouse, click on Ally to fire, or somewhere else to move

Main Graphics : Noodles
Music : Cotontoudoux
Prog & additional gfx : LeReveur

love the music and the feel of the game, the collision detecting seems somewhat buggy though, it would be helpfull to see where you are actually shooting like a spray or something..nice first game!

Maybe I just did not understand the game, but I had a lot of fun killing the bugs.

I couldn't really follow what was going on -- maybe add some projectiles so I can tell what's happening when I fire my gun?

Hard to understand what's going on. The art that's in there looks good though.

It took me a while to figure out how to play. Some bullets and more accurate collision would be nice. Great music and art!

Fun, but not very obviouse how to control it at first. It could have better feedback if there will be graphics of water shots towards the insects.

This game is really short, I didn't expect that ='). But the experience was nice. A tutorial of some sort would help though! Congratulations on finishing on time ^^

The music was really good, but I don't really get what you're supposed to do. I got through all the levels, but can you ever get a higher score?

this reminded me of worm womper for the intellivison, which was a game I totally forgot about until just now, so thanks for the wicked nostalgia there. The big problem is not being able to see your projectile. That adds so much to the experience that it just can't be left out like this!

Art and music is great, but the animation is so stilted. You'd almost be better off taking a south park style single-frame jiggle for walking under these time constraints. That's LD for you, though.

Hopefully you still had fun even if your first idea fell through.

This was alright. I can see you were strapped for time. The bug art is cool and the character looks good, though the animation could be a little smoother.

Ally has a pretty wide spread with that gun, huh? I guess that helps since there isn't any targeting indicator. Her hitbox seemed larger than it should be. She'd sometimes strike a sullen pose when there was still a decent buffer between her and a bug.

Thank you all for your wise comments. :) The lack of time due to "last chance concept reconversion" has dramatically reduced our capacities to fully adjust the gameplay - and this is not the first time I got stuck with that bad hitbox behavior (I know I would finish, soon or later, to solve this by making mine, instead of use the one embedded in haxepunk, but it will take a certain time). In fact, I choose to also use it to find the closest target to hit, and that's why it's very difficult to understand why one bug is hit over another when Ally fired in one direction. And, trust me, until the last minute I tried to make that weird hitbox work better, but I failed - and I'm sorry (and a little upset) for that. ^_^

Great title screen and good music. Did not understand the game, but for some reason I won.

You can only win (or never can lose), the only difference is the final score. ;)

Work on graphics and audio was nicely done.

I couldn't really understand what to do or what was I doing in the game the first time I've played. Controls feel a little bit slow also.

Projectiles could help, as some said, and also some sound fx. :)

I like the graphics and music but the controls lack feedback - the shooting felt kinda strange (wide angle?).

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.
