Ludum Dare 37 — December 9th-11th, 2016 — Theme: One Room

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

Professor Killalot

by Ourson - Compo Entry

The Professor Killalot must defend the crystal from the hordes of monsters.
Fortunately he is loaded with weapons.

Featuring 5 different weapons, 5 different ennemies and 1 glorious moustache.

I tried to make a simple game with emphasis on the game feel and making the game "juicy".

I hope you'll like it.

Edit: Mabe it's a bit unclear, but the game DOES ramp up in difficulty. The difficulty is maxed out at score 60. Try to reach 70, I promise it's pretty challenging ;).

Nice game! The music was great. Although it would be nice if the game increased in difficulty.
My record was 21.

Nice music, and my thoughts were the same as CMLSC. The game needs to ramp in difficult, maybe make enemies spawn faster after x amount of enemies have been killed? My record: 17

Windows 10 stopped me from opening the game, saying it was unsafe x_X

22 on first play through. Reminds me of super crate box. Great entry. Congrats on finishing.

Nice graphics and music, although reminiscent of super crate box.

Thank you all for your kind comments. =D
So yea, the difficulty ramps up. I edited my description to make it clear.
Also, yes it is reminiscent of Super Crate Box. It makes sens since I'm a huge fan of Vlambeer's work (especially with Nucelar Throne). But then again, aren't all platformers reminiscent of Super Mario Bors.?! ;)

Good game, good work !
It's fun to play but a little hard.

My record is 16.

(I have the same warning than candycreep on windows 10).

Great game, got solid physics and good pace, I only reached 23 at my go but might try it out a bit more later, so many games to test right now! Cheerz!

Nice!

Really enjoyed it. Suddenly running out of ammo then jumping around enemies to get to the gun and killing them all before they hit the crystal was really fun.

Absolutely exemplary. Good music, solid art style and clean, satisfying gameplay. I love the variety of enemies and weapons. The menu navigation isn't quite what I'd like it to be, but the actual game has both polish and depth.

Highscore: 57 as of now, but I think I'll be coming back to this one.

Hm, tried to emulate under Linux, but it says the .CAB file is missing.

Nice music and graphics, little disappointing that the gameplay was taken directly from supercratebox

Very nice game !! My score: 17

Dec 12, 2016 @ 11:48pm

26 on the first try and 40 on the second, really good game !!! Controls are perfect and having different types of weapon is nice, with this dual protection of ourselves and the crystal.

Really good, I liked it !!!

I like it, but it's basically just "Super Crate Box"

I do like it. This was just good, clean, decent fun. 8) Character physics could be improved, at first, I found myself jumping way too high and dying with no way to stop it (by releasing the jump button, which has been an established jump mechanic standard since 1985). But it's compo entry, so you're forgiven. And it does make the game a little more challenging. Music is great. Well done.

oh! Nice! Can I find it on indiexpo? I'm making videos about the games of this Jam, but only about the games hosted also on indiexpo! Tell me if you will add it, so I can include it in my next video ;)

Reminds me of Super Crate Box, except this time with a lower difficulty curve and longer playthroughs, so better for me.
