Radial Storm

by levsha128 - Compo Entry

Radial Storm is arkanoid-like game in polar coordinates. But how it correlate with 'shapeshift'? There is two reasons:
1) Bat is changes their shape (4 level)
2) Space is curved and in future i want to make 2 in 1 game that changes coordinate system on the fly.
This version is not polished, and i not fully satisfied by it. There is no bonuses, or nice animations that is planned ;(

Sadly I think it's bugged out :/
Every time I tried to start it, it was instant game over with the ball out of bounds I think. Sorry can't be more descriptive, it's just "game over" non stop.

It didn't work for some reason. When I pressed Start, it immediately showed the game over screen and pressing Restart did the same.

I grabbed the source directly and gave this another go to at least give it a fair chance.

Needs polish, that's for sure, but the concept of multi dimensional popcorn/arkanoid game is pretty good. I'm not sure how it's related to shape shifting (though you could imagine that shapes are shifting around or something) but it's a shame it's in such a raw state because I'd have loved to play this more, if it was more stable.

Good try, just sad you didn't have time needed to see this through proper.

Buggy (constant game overs) when started, made the screen bigger and reset that helped.
game was fun but did not offer a lot of replay, controls were good, lacking audio.

Seems like a good idea for a simple game but it is bugged out. Pressing start only ends the game.

After fixing the screen size, I enjoyed this game! Thanks!

It's not exactly a new idea, but I really found the idea of the curved pong paddle quite cool. The game is quite buggy though.

Nice game, but it has many bugs. If you repair these bugs, your game will be awesome :)

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.
