Hi, nice game and congratulations !is it like a capture the flag ? :D We're realizing a video with several games of the Ludum Dare #36. We made the same thing at the previous jam.

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.

@steph88:
Thank you for the congrats.
You pasted that same message on my last LD game as well and no I'm not interested in having my games on yet another aggregator making ad money hosting other creators' content.
Sorry for being so blunt but I've had previous experiences with people like you.

Neat art, consistent.
Mmmh i didn't get what to do at first play. I mean, i couldn't figure out what i have to do and even who i was. From what i understand, it is because i play the team on the right. That is unconventionnal in a game so i was disturb. Also, seeing "!" & "?" symbols above left army heads made me think i was this team.
Another thing that was disturbing to understand was to see the "my turn" signal but in fact my turn is at the same time of the enemy's turn.

I don't know if it is because i was lost but i found it really difficult to remember flags combinations at first.

I replayed and managed to remember flags to do proper counter.
In my last battle, i used only G/spear every time and i win.

There was a little bug making a new incoming enemy positioning on exact same position of another enemy.

Good work.

@repstyle
Thank you for the detailed feedback!
It's always very interesting to see how some informations seem obvious when you create the game, but is actually not for a real player.

Hi,

Nice and fun, if you play without pressing on the spear attack on every attack.
If they defend from arrow, they die, if they defend from spear nothing happen, if they attack with arrow they die, if they attack with spear it's fifty/fifty.

Nice clean, simple art which worked well with the music. Had trouble at first figuring out the gameplay and how the flags came into play. But liked how the mechanics played off the memorization, was nice and different from most of the other entries I've played so far.

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 (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.
