Graphics Are For Losers

by Kaphonaits - Competition Entry

You, the Mobboss of Bullcrap controls a Squadron Of Idiots. You can raid Russian towns and snort drugs and stuff. It's fucking hardcore. Like Duke Nukem.

I bought my squadron M5's, but they stopped doing any damage. Do they need more ammo? I can't buy it. I only ever have a chance against villages with like 8 people, but it'd take forever to sack enough of those to get guns again.
You weren't working on graphics or sound, so I expect a lot more to be there in a text game, and it isn't.
Squadron Status

I understand your frustration with Max Damage. Bugs involving the calculation of it jumped up towards the tail-ends of the Compo and I didn't have time to iron out all of them.

One of the ways I found to fix bugs like this was either to kill all your hostages or keep them all; I forget.

I'm sorry if I've disappointed you in any way, but this was my first entry. I wasn't great at time management and everyone who has played this game knows it.

Have a nice day. :D

Ah, text adventures. Nice work on taking a stand against graphics. :)

hmm.. yeah, I liked it but I was looking forward to less bugs and vagueness.. why am I taking hostages? Does having more damage mean more hostages taken? . . .
When I heal the squad, the get sober.
Does tripping on drugs improve anything?
I actually had fun playing this but I think you could have polished it a little.;)
Better luck next time. It seemed like a good start.

Aww, dang. I hoped it would partially work. Is there any way to heal up again or get drugs? My squadron makes quite a bit damage when starting out but very soon goes down to 1 hit. No chance to win anything like that.
Looked funny :)

Nice attempt ^^ Shame about the bugs but these things happen. Lets go kill some Russians or something!

Looks like it can be fun, but it's almost impossible to win a fight. When I finally managed to win a fight and only got 250 gold out of it I gave up...
