One Second Hero

by aCoupleGames - Jam Entry

One Second Hero is a game about defeat the enemies using one hit on your keyboard for each one. You can transfom yourself to avoid some enemies and hit others. The deal is that your transformations remains for an incredible short time so, you should use it with accuracy.
Use the arrow keys (right,left) or the keys (A, D) to hit enemies that walk against you and arrow keys (up, down) or keys (W,S) to avoid flying and creepind enemies.
The game goes until level 9.
We hope you really enjoy it and thanks for playing! Any feedback will be amazing :)

Nice game. Simple but addictive. It also gives me a good file, reminds me to mangas like Ranma and Dragon Ball

TURTLE POWER! Sweet job. I loved the long animations and music. My only suggestions for improvements are better feedback on hits (like pushing the bots back before they explode) and dropshadows for characters in all their forms. Then juice up the speed and watch those quarters fly!

I liked it! It looked nice and the enemies weren't all interesting to look at. I find the feedback on what is or isn't close enough to hit you a little loose, but didn't hold me back. It's got a good classic soundtrack too!

Great job! Really like this game :) Mechanics are very simple but the addition of the time limit adds quite a bit of challenge. Also really enjoyed the animations, graphics style, and sound.

It's a nice game, I only missed a feedback about the player's health, and a counter of how many enemies I've killed.

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

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.
