The Boxing Ring

by Haveachin - Compo Entry

A game where you play a little something in a boxing ring. Fight or die.

This is my first Ludum Dare and I hope my game is not that bad. I am open to criticism.

Fun little game. The graphics are nice and the concept is fun. It gets a bit boring after a while though (adding more enemies is nice, but it's not enough to keep me playing).

Note: The web player on the top is not working well. You should at least add a link to gamejolt to the downloads and links section.

I really like the look and gameplay of this. The fighting mechanic could work really well with a few power ups or something to make the gameplay a bit more dynamic. Nice work for you first jam.

A nice version of boxing, I liked the basic idea and the core gameplay was kinda need. I wanted more movement and glove actions and in the end it was a bit of slog to bash tougher and tougher guys out of the ring, but as a core mechanic you've really got something there.

GameJolt :(

The aesthetics were on point! A lot of people say pixel art is overdone, but I think as long as the thing is cohesive and fits the game it's fine, and personally I think this gmae does a great job with that. Gameplay wise, there is plenty of potential, and the disembodied boxing glove is really satisfying to manipulate. However, you can win infinitely by blocking and walking toward any enemies, which I did for 3 minutes until I assumed there was nothing else to discover. Congrats on your first entry!

For a first time in LD I think you did a great job. Game works well and the graphics reminded me of my old gameboy...Oh the memories! Again, well done!

I got a 1661 score!! hahaha . Love this game! As JD557 said, if you could've a variety of enemies would've made the experience more fun.

I liked this one, it's pretty goofy and fun. The blocking is pretty strong and I never figured out how to k.o. anyone but its quick which makes it more exciting.

Nice game! Cute graphics. But mechanic needs a little more. Good luck! :)

I managed to get 204 knockouts in 292 seconds. It was too easy at first then a second dude was dropped in. The challenge was amplified but not enough... I needed a third guy to come in. Or so I though. I made one quick miscalculation and was knocked off the platform.

I think the computers needed to be dropped more randomly around the level. They kept getting dropped right near the edge allowing me to combo people off of the level. I also agree with @cxsquared throw some power ups in there to get the player to move around more.

Nice concept here with pleasant graphics, though it does feel a bit easy since they all spawn on the left side it seems.
