Well, Mike ran in to problems getting working properly with about 12 hours left in the Compo, so this is the backup plan.

One Room Battle Arena

by Turrus - Compo Entry

Play with up to 4 players local (plugged in controllers) and battle in ONE ROOM. The person with the least deaths when the timer runs out wins! Choose from playing as a Mage(large damage, slow fire speed) and Ninja (low damage, fast fire speed). Unfortunately I had no time to add sounds so why don't you make it even more fun by making all your own sounds with your friends!

-Use the 'Left stick' or 'D-pad' to move your character left and right!
-Use 'X' to jump!
-Use the 'Right stick' in the intended direction to fire!

Do note (thanks to tylerraz for the heads up) this was designed for PS4 controllers and so the controls may not work as intended on others.

Thanks - Turrus

Couldn't play without controller. Looks nice enough though. Maybe you could mention that you need a controller in the description, so people don't waste time downloading if they can't play.

but dobnarr I have said in the description that you use controlers "Play with up to 4 players local (plugged in controllers)" and there is also a screenshot of the main menu that has very visible text at the bottom of the screen that says "WARNING! A CONTROLLER MUST BE USED TO PLAY THIS GAME". Sorry if I'm coming across not the best but I have done what I can to make it obvious to people. Thanks anyway for your feedback dobnarr

Decent fun as 2P, I'm sure its better with more though. Little guys are cute. I'm guessing you built this for PS controllers. We used Xbox controllers. The firing controls were reversed: left trigger fired right, right trigger fired left. And the B button acted as the X button. No big deal, but might want to add that to the description.

Can't run this one atm as I don't have a controller, so I will have to find some friends. I rate this when I find some. :(

Not bad, would be nice to be able to move and attack (at least I couldn't move and attack using xbox controllers). Good work.

Played this with a PS3 controller and it played fine. The idea is great and we need more local coop games. Fun game to play with coworkers in a break.
