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

ButterFighters is an arena shooter where everyone is too clumsy to keep a hold of their guns. Fight to the death with one other player in local multiplayer, trying your hardest to get off an accurate shot before you scramble to pick up another weapon. (So yes, dropping your guns is intentional.)

Play with a friend with two controllers. Designed for the Xbox 360 pad.

I have no friend so it is hard to test with two people :) However, with my xbox controller, the camera was way too fast. Some explanations about how to play would also be good. It is also strange to lose your weapon once you shoot but it seems to be done on purpose. I think it cuts the rhythm of the game.

ok, the idea of local pvp duel is nice!
But controls is rly awful
also, i have some controllers, but all off them control of my first player ;(
So i can only run and shooting in my opponent ;)
anyway, animation and idea is good!
Polish your game and make post-compo!

What I really like in this small game is the fact that you loose your weapon after shooting. That makes you time your shots wisely. This could turn into a great game.

What a fantastic idea - this is gold for a local multiplayer game! Really intrigued by the concept and I'd love to see a larger version of this sometime.

Funny game to play! I included it in my compilation video series of the Ludum Dare 37 games, if you’d like to take a look. :)
