Mighty Golem

by FlashMonkey - Compo Entry

Mighty Golem (First Ludum Dare)

is a 2D Shooter where you play a Golem and try to destroy the Kingdom of Astoria.
I'am sorry but I didn't finished the whole Game.

Controlls & Notes:
with the RMB you set the target position to go to.

LMB: shoots a Laser which is single hit this means you apply only oneTime damage and this is when you hit the enemie.
Q: you get a Boost
W: create a force field at the mouseposition which makes damage over time and slowdown the enemies and gives the laser a damage multipiler.
E: heal yourselve by 25 hp.

What's missing:
Sounds and Music
The Last Attacktype
and beautiful animation + sprites

I like the graphics a lot. I wasn't sure how to kill the knights. The laser hits them but sometimes nothing happens.

Hey! Nice Game!

-Nice sprites
-Cool concept

-Movement with the right-click doesn't seem right
-The font is really difficult to read

No sound as said in the description, WAY to difficult to shoot and move at the sametime and enemies are always right on your tail and u cant ever get a shot off safely. Nice art style. Could have used a better and easier to read font at the beginning

Very nice graphics! Loved it. Plus gameplay was pretty cool. Level felt kind of empty, needed some trees or something.

Nice game! I like the Moba style abilities.
I just didn't like the way you move the character. I feel like in a game like this I should be able to run and shoot to oposite directions.

I like the look of this game and can see where it can be with some more polish.
I didn't feel like me actions had a huge impact of the enemies. I wanted them to react more instead of just disappearing.

Well done! I did find the font a little hard to read though.

Pretty interesting concept, you've got a lot done!

The game would benefit from some feedback upon hitting things, Knights shaking, blinking, that sort of thing!

Hey! You commented in my game "Aye The Destroyer".

I'm just making sure that you know that you can move using WASD. I forgot to tell that in-game. It's now fixed and it should take care of most of the difficulty issue. If you could give me your updated thoughts I would be very glad.

Thank you!

I like the graphics. Would have been nice to have some sound fx. Congrats on submitting your game!

The art is great, but I felt the knights run at you way too fast.

I'm not entirely sure how the skills work, since sometimes they don't seem to activate.

Then again, I couldn't really read the instructions. Dat font, man.

I liked this. The graphics were well put together on a technical level. I think the game could have communicated game changes better(taking damage, knights taking damage, etc.)

The knights are way to fast, but this seems like a good start for a really fun game.

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.
