我单人玩的,感觉双人会挺有意思,因为游戏机制比较有趣,攻防需要一定策略。

Really cool concept! Well done! I wish I had someone to play it with. Idea: what if you can chain together multiple shapes on each side for more shielding?

@andyman404, ah, I'me not sure whether should be more shield, maybe it's too long as a weapon/shield.

Cute little game! It was fun, even though I was only able to play myself. Nice audio too! Good work :)

Interesting gameplay with some smooth controls. This pure aesthetic is pleasant for geometry games. Well done ++

I didn't have anyone to play against with, but it was really fun to just defeat the second player.

I like the mechanic! The rest of the game is thin, but thats okay

Almost plays like a "build it in the arena" robot wars. A cool little concept that could make for a great online arena game. Smooth simplistic graphics which work well with the geometry theme and a nice background tune thats not too in your face.

Good work.

I could see this being really fun with an opponent! Handled nicely.

Fun, I really dug it (the guy I beat didn't hahaaa!)
One hit kill seems a bit angry for sake of pacing, perhaps a three hit system or something?

Otherwise having a key bound to restarting the game would be super helpful since we kept going back to the mouse for menus, but I'm nit-picking!

I dig the vibe, the tunes and the sound FX. V. cool, cheers!

Cool strategy competitive games, sadly i'm playing it alone, seems the concept is extended from Rock Paper Scissor, Nice try

Very cool concept, I love local-multiplayer games that keep people closer. Well done! :)

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

Pretty fun game, although the rounds tend to be to fast, and not having an instant restart button gets annoying after a time. Also, the music is really neat. Great work! :)

Really genius~! love this design which based on geometry.
this LD just have seen another game similar like this,and you two have different pointcuts,and both cool enough! I love cool game which sample and have some Trance feeling!
btw,both player sometimes may Embed into each other!(but sometimes not be) i am not sure whether this is your particular design or just a bug! but anyhow i love it! and this is really cool,because under the circumstances,only let rotate can solve it and it will cause to duke it out! how flaming hot!(超燃短接战!) meanwhile,i also think if there are more external factors to cause players collide each other ,it must be more like a Duel!( Like two samurai!)

all in all,i will save it in my computer and will play it more with my little brother in next days,because i think it is already a nice toy currently~of course ,if there are some big level and more rich enviroment,it must be more cool!

Just hope to see more new update in future~ Cheers!

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.
