Switch Them All

by Kano - Jam Entry

(PLEASE READ, PLEASE READ, PLEASE READ)


XBOX 360 Controller only, sorry :(


Hi everyone, here is our first game for the Ludum Dare !

We see this game as a training for us, about battle system, gameplay, physics and stuff. It's a kind of beat them'all where your character have an arm that can mutate in 4 versions, which are ranged, slow or very fast weapons.

We tried to make something with the physics, try to play with bullets and fire, walls, even your glove. You'll see.

If you want, leave us a comment/critize of course, it helps us a lot.

(PS : This build is quite buggy, the objectives aren't showing :=
Level 1 - Kill at least 20 enemies
Level 2 - Kill at least 40 enemies
Level 3 - Run !


CONTROLS :

Left Stick : Move
Right Stick : Aim
RT : Fire/Attack
LB : Pick up Ammo
A,B,X,Y : Switch Weapons

Not sure how to run the game? The "playme" thing gives this error: Exported games won't run until you upload them.

I got the same error as falloneus.

Oh you can run the Game even with this message, It happens often with Construct 2

How do I run the game? All I see is the error message and a black screen. Nothing seems to be loading or happening.

Don't worry about the error message just click on OK, it will work

Will not work on Chrome after downloading, only firefox. You should consider uploading it somewhere and including a link to the html file instead of a download to the whole thing.

I pressed OK on the error and it still wouldn't work for me.

Can't get it to work, will come back to try again later! (This happens, don't sweat it!)

Interesting game. It was really fun. I only wish it was more polished a bit, but hard to do in the time limit.

Thank you, yeah i agree with you, but i was working as the same time so :/ But we're really happy about this kind of "battle system", we want to make a "real" game with this.

Fun game but the battle system could use some work.

This game only work with a Xbox Controller, maybe it's because of that i don't know :(

Graphics were nice, not sure why you had to pick up ammo with LB rather than picking it up automatically. Threw me off since I missed it in the instructions.
Otherwise, kinda fun. Music was pleasant.
Good job for a first LD game. Keep it up! :)

The Web link took me to a download?

Kano says ...
Apr 20, 2016 @ 6:39am

Yes the Game is in a rar file

Not bad! I found picking up my ammo after shooting it to be a little annoying though. Half of it usually got lost or stuck behind a bunch of enemies.

The graphics remind me a bit of Adventure Time. I have currently no controller available, so I keep your game on my desk until I'll be able to play it! :)

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.
