This game was exported in Flash and, as you probably know, Flash has been discontinued. As such, I can only provide access to the source code and the
.swf file at the moment.
If you happen to have an ancient computer that still runs Flash in the browser, or a copy of the Adobe Flash Standalone Player, you should be able to run the game.
Ludwig Von Beatdown was written in ActionScript 3 using Adobe’s FlashBuilder 4.6 and the excellent Flixel library. Sound effects were made in bfxr and the font is Commodore 64 Pixelized by Devin Cook. Just between you and me, some inspiration was drawn from the game Johann Sebastian Joust by Die Gute Fabrik.
You can read my writing about the game on my blog. Ludwig Von Beatdown was featured on The Verge, Free Indie Games, IndieGames.com, and PC Gamer.
