Dibs: Top Bunk

by kidando - Jam Entry

You are the last born of a family of 4 kids and are tired of sleeping on the bottom bunk of a bunk bed. Things are about to change in the bed room. Because you just called dibs on the top bunk!

Action shooter. Like contra. With a little bullethell :).

Very creative. The themes based on age are a nice touch. The controls feel good. Good job!

One of the most anticipated entries for me :)

Really great idea, and I love the art style. Controls feel really great.

I think the rounds could have been a little bit shorter, maybe 30 seconds? Also, It would be really great to have some sort of transition between bunks, to sell the idea of rising to the highest bunk.

This game was very fun! I loved all the graphics, and this interpretation of the theme was super clever.

Fun game, nice clean graphics. I felt like the hardest level was the first on though.

Fun game! Wish the levels were a little shorter though, it's kinda rough to get to the boss and know you have so long to wait to try again.

I wish you could hold dowh the button to spam bullets instead of having to mash it - and I thought the pillow was some sort of power-up or health as it had an H on it-

Fun game- I enjoyed playing :) A little difficult- I got to the first boss once but didnt beat him- those damn dirty socks jump out of nowhere on top of you!

I like the variety of enemies and how individual instances will have slightly different height movements and things, little number tweaks make a huge difference to the end experience.
I also really enjoyed the fullscreen UI flash when getting hurt, really clear what was happening.

Fun to play and really nice art. A bit hard for me (I'm just bad).

Dec 16, 2016 @ 5:16pm

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

Fine and cute minimalistic pixel style. Driving beat that does not get on your nerves is cool. Good mechanic.
Some enemies should not pop out of nowhere. That gives a slight feeling of unfairness to the player.

This is a solid entry. It was pretty polished and fun. Thanks for the submission!

Really fun arcade shooter! :D It has a really nice mood, thanks to the soundtrack, good work with that. :) Nice use of concept of sharing a room and "deciding" on who gets the top bunk in bed! :D

Graphics wise, I really like the style and the theme on each stage but, as some said, a transition could be a nice add-on, to give that feeling of progression. :)

Controls work perfectly, really fast and responsive, which is really important in an action game like this one. :D Though I felt that last bunk was kinda "easier", compared to the second one. :P

Great job! Cheers! :D

really nice, finally something "arcade" with nice action.

Dec 23, 2016 @ 5:48pm

Very fun shooter game! One strange thing I noticed is that when I played it the text and weapon at the top is offset to the right... Nevertheless, it's very nicely done :)

Yeah ! That was a lot of fun, totally the kind of games I love as a player and a designer !! Super action shooter with great game feel for a jam game, nice diversity on enemy pattern and strict to the theme, each mechanics seems designed for this "One Room" area, which is really good. I love your lowrez pixel art animation ! As I made a similar game for this jam, I know the amount of work required by bossfights and you did super well ! Enjoyed it a lot and played much longer than expected, so addictive !
