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.

graphSploder, an android game based on mono/cocossharp is a tribute to ti83 game Phoenix(which helped me through algebra), a shmup where you play as a flying graphing calculator defending and avoiding the enemies coming from a math classroom chalkboard.

there is a bug I wasn't able to sort out in time where sometimes the enemy doesn't draw or gets drawn invisibly--if you fire a few times usually the next one draws... oops! Thanks anyone who give it a play!!

Not half bad. Played it on my phone - ran fine too. Looks like moving right to the middle of the "m" is a winning strategy!

Some M are appearing too close to the right side of the screen making it impossible to get them.
Despite this, it's a nice shmup :)

When I was young I had a Ti83 - almost my first computer. Thank you to remind me this time. Well done ++

Phone games are always interesting to see in a jam. This one is not bad, but it's pretty repetitive and is not very difficult. First, the spaceship just kind of teleports everywhere, which is somewhat strange feeling. There is only one enemy type, and they don't do anything but give out points.

However, it's certainly a good start for a game - it simply needs more content. Music would also be good, and would make the game much more engaging.

Brought me back to my teen years. Could use some variety though.

Good start! I included it in my compilation video series of the Ludum Dare 37 games, if you’d like to take a look. :) https://youtu.be/9I4q6tJ6Ge8
