Clean and simple is your trademark. Maybe a little higher tempo had made game yet enjoyable. Great that you have several different enemies and levels! Well done!

in 1024x768 full screen, your buttons are not clickable. i have figured it out by clicking a bit left of the buttons yet it is a problem you need to solve :)

besides that, very straightforward, nice entry. good job :)

Nice game. One time I ran out of enemies, having to wait 45 seconds for the next spawn. Could be a bit faster paced.

I kinda liked the apporach and the shooting feels also quite good but HELL have I to wait long sometimes.. Killed 2 people and had to wait 45 seconds for new spawn. If the game would be a bit faster, I think it would be atleast as twice as good as it is right now!
However great job!

It's way to long between spawning of waves, something like three seconds would be better. I ran around the level looking for enemies, the geometry to traverse didn't feel like it served a purpose like cover or places to hide/defend. The theme wasn't really anything more than another set of sprites. Text at the beginning was a bit much, maybe introduce the new concepts through different levels instead. A decent job overall, congratulations on completing it!

The laser sound gets quite annoying, it's too loud / high-pitched. Sometimes waiting for the next wave got a bit tedious, too long.

Nice job. As others have said, a faster respawn rate would be an improvement. Loved the audio. Creepy. Good job for the theme.

Enjoyed the upgrade mechanic and the menacing soundtrack, although here are some suggestions: Give the main weapon a different color, blue really vanishes in the background. Maybe ad some hit feedback on the guys (particles, sound effect) so I know I am doing the right thing. And perhaps crank up both spawn rate and gravity. Mostly I was waiting for guys to appear while flying through the air :) Still it was fun.

The graphics are simple but could use some word. The audio is okay, and the sound effects are kinda loud though.

Also, I'm only able to jump with Space instead of W.

Spawning time is too long.

Seems a bit boring. Would probably help if they spawned faster. Graphics were nice other than where I could see seams in the background texture. Audio was... a lot of laser squees and that's about it. Not sure I could have done too much better in two days myself though, so not bad overall.

Classic platform fun featuring a devil monster thing with death ray. Liked the death ray which was great, the ominous humming, and the skill level (not something that I've seen often in Ludum). Only real downside was that the time between spawning seemed too long - so found myself jumping around for a while.

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.
