Panzer Vs Aliens

by Juanito - Jam Entry

My first Ludum Dare entry, and my second playable game.
I am using unity, all the assets (sounds, meshs, sprites...) were made during the Jam.

Feel free to leave a comment, so next time, I'll make a better game !


Please, be careful if you're not using an AZERTY keyboard, you may have to reconfigure some inputs ==> launch the game, then change lines:
* Horizontal (+)
* Horizontal (-)
* Vertical (+)
* Vertical (+)
All other keys are ready to use.

Enjoyed playing it! It's little hard to control when I hold forward. It is like sliding on ice for me. I like that buildings with top down view.

I think it need more impact feedback and fire rate. Good work!

AZERTY game? That's the first I've seen haha! Anyways, I think the game is pretty awesome but needs one imprevement. You need to make the turning speed a little faster, it is really hard to control at this speed. If not, you should implement some other control system, because with WASD/ZQSD it is really hard to control at that turning speed because you feel like you should turn faster.

Very unconventional control scheme, but still I found the game quite charming!

I would like to see improvements with the controls but also some work on the effects. The tank fires very slowly and it doesn't feel very satisfactory.

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. Many solo participants 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.
