ShiftDefender

by MountainRanger - Compo Entry

This is my second game made for LudumDare, and I must say it was really fun!!
Anyway, this is how you play my game:
q,w,e - change character
space - jump(ninja)
shift - transform into godzila. uses all your power(blue stuff)
shield guy uses his sheld to block tanks and explode grenades using power
shoot the planes with turret guy to regain health
also restart with space in the score screen

I hope you enjoy it:)

Very unique, fun and strangely complex game. Hard to master, couldn't get more than 43. Very well done though.

I guess you gotta jump over the tanks and block the bombs and shoot down the planes? got to 34... Fits the theme.

I like the mechanic underneath the game, but it's really hard to play.
I guess the enemies are spawned randomly, because it can get very messy very early on the game. I would suggest that you balance that if you do any post-LD version. :)

Pretty cute game! The mechanics are good but the learning curve is very harsh - it would benefit a lot from an easy first minute, and I think you could probably cut the enemy speed in half to let the player think a bit more on the shape shifting decisions. Nice entry!

Nice concept!
I like the gameplay and mechanics.
Sometimes a bit difficult for me, but overall good work here!

Nice concept! Though it's a bit hard to figure out how to play it... Still can't kill things decently xp

Anyways great work!

Nice concept and graphics.

neontropics covered it pretty well: decent enough idea, but it all happens so fast it's tough to handle. Even when I figured the game *in theory* I had a lot of trouble *in practice.* The game would be easier if it were easier to jump over tanks after blocking one, which comes down to move speed.

High score: 28. Lowest high score of anyone around here, hah!

Also, I encountered a weird bug where it wasn't possible to jump as a ninja sometimes. Not sure what that was about, but I feel like I could've gotten more than 28 points on that one good run if he'd been jumping...

Screw it, I'll play ONE MORE...

HAH! NEW HIGH SCORE: 50! And NO ninja-jumping bug this time!

The controls were a bit hard to master, but good idea ! Experimented a bug when dying in turret, at restart have the sprite of ninja but hability of turret.

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.
