Great game, I liked the art and the level generation was really well done. The boss was also cool. I only had a few issues, but nothing too major. I felt that the enemies spawned a bit too close to the player, and I would often bump into them while entering the room, but I may have just been releasing the button a bit too late to stop rolling. Also, the exit button didn't seem to work, but that may have been a fluke. Great work overall!

Simple and enjoyable game. I couldn't get into the room with the key though, there was no door. All enemies were dead in all other rooms.

+ The camera should be positioned so it's the same amount of visible space behind and in front of the tank.
+ The player's bullets currently destroy enemy bullets, making things too easy. It would be more of a challenge if shots passed through each other.
+ Perhaps bullets should inherit the speed from the player? It'll make things more challenging, especially when aiming sideways. You then won't be able to "catch up" to your bullets either like you can now.
+ Map generation needs some work, make every room can be reached from every other room (no missing doors).

How do you make a game like this in weekend?
Really coolgame, needs some sfx.

Freat game. Zelda 1 meets twin stick shooter.

One suggestion would be to make the camera push in from of the direction you are moving so you can see more where you are going that where you have been.

Quite fun though.

Roguelike in 48 hours? Nice job! =) Controls feels pretty good, but the camera could get some more work. Enemies are too close when you enter next room, but I can take it as a challenge )

I had fun playing your game! The camera does need to be fixed - it was kind of hard to see the top of the screen when moving up. I loved the music and the level generation was extremely impressive, especially for only 48 hours. Great job!

Enemies are placed way to close to player when entering room.
Nice effect with dynamic lights.
Art is good, music not so.. could definitely be improved.

Nice game, but I agree with the other comments, the Music isn't very good and sometimes enemies are placed too close, but I liked the shooting sound.

A really polished, solid entry. You've certainly done a lot during the 48 hours and I totally congratulate you on that, awed by your productivity. DID YOU EVEN SLEEP?

I had some troubles with the camera and with some enemies that kill me as soon as I enter a new room.
But anyway, I like your art and, over all, the dynamic music effects.

Solid game - well polished, fun mechanics. could use some more variation though, maybe pillars in the rooms and some powerups

I love the art style and the music. When you die the piano sounds really cool. Solid game.

Only issue I had was the enemies sometimes were a little too close to the door, however very nice game and addictive, it reminded me of Zelda with a twist.

Nice job, fun to play although I suck at using the arrow keys to shoot :)

Pretty good, but sometimes a door lacked, and the camera tend to stay at the door, instead of following the tank.

The atmosphere in this game is spooky and dark. The music fits really well and the dungeon looks good. I like the shadows and the coloured doors and keys, and the map that appears. This is one of my favourites so far from Ludum Dare 36. If this was a longer game with more levels and challenges I would buy it and recommend it to my friends. Lots of fun.

Good job, I killed the boss.

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.
