Too Many Pixies in Pixel Town

by taybenlor - Competition Entry

"We've managed to take over a small section of Pixel Town to facilitate research. As our smartest tactician it's your job to defend it. The pixels don't like us being here - they'll take any chance to get square. So be on the look out."

As per usual, it's dangerous to go alone! Take these Magic Mushrooms.

Written (almost) entirely in CoffeeScript and CSS the technologies involved in this game are very unique (for game development).

While the web and HTML5 platforms are normally quite compatible - this will only work in Google Chrome and will likely require a recent version. Sorry about that.

Edit: Instructions
1. The pixels are invading - stop them from taking over the screen
2. Build mushrooms to kill the pixels - they cost $5
3. Money and points are in the top left

I also don't understand it. Mushrooms seem to be invincible, so I can protect an area of land with a wall of mushrooms, but then I still seem to lose. I didn't work out what caused that.

I'm not sure what I'm supposed to be doing but the graphics are charming. =]

have to agree with everone. Not at all clear what I am doing exactly. Mushrooms eat blocks, but I cover the entire map with mushrooms and lose anyway. Cute tho :/

Thanks for the feedback guys :)

Theres instructions now in my post - I'd really like to add proper instructions to the game and clean it up a bit, but sometime later.

Congrats on the Chrome build, very slick.

A bit more player direction is needed, but this looks very pretty.

Couldn't help but feel I was trying to push drugs to the kids on the block (or the blocks on the... eh... well).

Pretty graphics, but like the others I fail to understand how I could lose the game by plastering the land with delicious 'shrooms.

Pretty, none the less, and I applaud any work with HTML5.

Very confusing, even with the instructions. Nice graphics!

Seems to only half work in IE9. Pressing "Play" doesn't do anything.
As a web developer you should know better than to use HTML5 ;)
