I'm only 13 years old so I couldn't do as much as I would've wanted to (school).

A good effort - I think with more time it could have developed. It was a little hard to dodge some of the bullets (possibly a bit too hard) but it was fun to play :)

I don't really get the scoring, sometimes I get points and sometimes I don't and sometimes they are negative? I really liked the teleport mechanic as a way to dodge bullets. I also really enjoyed the aesthetic of the graphics. I wish more designers were daring enough to use few colors.

Good effort! Yeah, doing this around school is pretty tough :)

I was a little puzzled by the scoring as well. Once I understood that it was about the number of enemies you allowed to escape, it made much more sense. Another thing that took me a while was just learning what causes damage. I wish there was something to indicate when I take damage so I didn't need to refer to the HP counter.

I really like the idea with the teleporting. If you keep working on this, I'd love to play it again.

Pretty hard game, the attacks are cool.

It is a bit too hard. You should make it more balanced.

You must sign in to comment.

IMPORTANT NOTE: If you want to place in the final results, you NEED votes. The easiest way to get votes is by rating other games. Judging lasts for 3 weeks following the end of Ludum Dare. For best effect, rate 20 games as soon as possible. Rating more games is encouraged.


REMEMBER: The “Theme” category is only for the main theme (You are the Villain). Don’t penalize for not using Goats.

TEAMS: Teams entering the Jam should pick a single representative to submit your game, or create a team specific account you can share. We currently do not support Team Voting, but sharing an account and together playing and rating games is acceptable.

NOT LOGGED IN?: If you get a message about not being logged in, even though you are, it’s because your web browser cached the non-logged in page. You can fix this by either refreshing your cache or clearing your cache. CTRL+F5 in many browsers. Chrome is a bit more work. Press F12 to enable Developer Mode, then you can right click on the refresh button and select “Empty Cache and Hard Reload”. This option is unavailable if you are not in Developer Mode.

We’ve identified the problem, and should have the page caching bugs fixed for next Ludum Dare.

PORTS: Ports to other platforms can be done after the deadline. That said, the sooner you finish your port, the sooner people can play your game, improving your chances of placing in the final results. For best results, provide a Web version of your game, or a Windows version with no dependencies. Also be sure to rate about 20 games to improve your visibility.

MY GAME DOESN’T SHOW UP: If you can’t find your game, it’s usually because the URL to your downloads are missing ‘http://‘. Fix your URLs ( and you will show up.

MY GAME CRASHES, IS UNBEATABLE, OR I MADE A TYPO: We allow you to fix crash or win condition bugs after the deadline (in a sense, like “porting” to support more players). We also allow “typo” bugs. I.e. A true that should have been a false, a word that should have been a different word, very tiny changes that you would have caught if you had more sleep. We leave this open to interpretation, but generally speaking your game should be identical to the game you submitted. No new features, just things you messed up last minute. Typos.
