The download link wasn't working for me. I could download the source but couldn't figure out how to play it...

I would love to try it, your start screen is beautifull. But the link of "ALL OS" does not work for me, as it returns to my home dropbox. I'm not sure on how to compile the sources since I stop javaing a long time ago.

Yeah that link isn't going to work. You have to go to the folder on your computer and right click "Get public link"

It's a good game, but sometimes the enemies kill each other, so I am not able to kill 5 of them.

Kind of difficult-to-understand game. The shooting was working weirdly and I sometimes shapeshifted automatically I think? I could be trying to shoot some enemies and then suddenly I get a "didnt get to shifto" game over screen.
However, I like that the maps seemed to be randomly generated.

It was a nice little game, but sometimes had problems, specially due to not bering able to kill 5 enemies in an area because there aren't or because the map won't let you advance.

It also had great problems with weird collision boxes. I will recommend you to try out an engine like unity or something alike, if you were able to creat such a thing only in java, imagine what you could do with those tools. I talk you from experience, I have done a few games with just java (not even a framework) and too much time is wasted in low-level stuff, you can't get the best out of you.

I think I really liked was the way damage points displayed, so bouncy :D.

It seems pretty cool and fun but the weird hit boxes and controls/physics of shooting make it a bit too hard to play!

Decent little game. Nice, but needs polishing.
Also, looks like you've messed up character hitbox.

Btw, bouncy damage indicators were nifty.

Nice concept, but sometimes the map didn't have enough enemies to advance. The shooting animations was kinda confusing.

Hi, nice game ! We're realizing a video with several games of the Ludum Dare #35.
Can you add your game on ? (it's free)
So we can include also your game in the video ;)
p.s. write #LDJAM in the game's description

I liked the graphics of this game, but the gameplay was not that good, specially when trying to shoot. The "bullets" didn't seem to go where I expected them to go.

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.
