That was actually quite fun to play!
I don't know if I got lucky but I only got one policeofficer which made everything a bit easier since I just needed to eat everyone.
Good job!

Nice idea and I liked the ending. But somehow I could jump out of the map by simply tapping space 10 times at the far right. Why did you even use a fully featured physics engine if simply y = max(y, floorHeight); would have been enough?

I laughed so much on the "enemies" just dropping dead! And the final joke was a plus. :)

First I thought the heal was free, and just went H-spamming all the way. Only when I got 50 energy and got back to the ship that I realized they were being consumed. I think you should make it a filling bar like the health, maybe.

A better indication of when a soul was consumed would've been nice. Other than that nice entry!

Nicely done. I particularly like the flight by over all your victims at the end. Subtle and creepy !

Keep it up!

You did an amazing job here! What a great game!

Aug 24, 2015 @ 10:47pm

I'd like to see some kind of audible warning that I'm running out of health -- I'm so busy soul-sucking that I forget to watch out for that and die! Argh! Fun game!
(There was no OSX executable, but I was able to run it inside Unity.)

Desperately needed confirmation sounds when you eat a soul. Other than that, nice work!

The gameplay felt a bit short and easy but the ending kinda makes up for it IMO. Good entry.

Always pack a second spaceship. ;-) The twist at the end was funny. It could have done with more enemies with guns to add some additional challenge but the core mechanic of trading off souls to heal vs. needing to keep them from for the ship was solid. I liked the alien and spaceship sprites too.

It would be awesome to have some more feedback on the enemies. The ending was really funny.
It's a simple but a fun game. Nice work!

Fun to play, I feel like a different "style" to this game could turn it into a finished product!

Thank you guys for all of the awesome feedback. This was my first Ludum Dare and it was an amazing experience :)

Funny litle story! hahahah
Nice pixel style and a good gameplay. See the dead corpses at the end is funny too! Congrats

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.
