    Slimes! - tgijsola - 48 Hour Competition Entry

    Help a swarm of blobby slimes ESCAPE from the death factory!

    Split them apart, join them back together! Jump! Dodge! Die! Infinite fun!

    Uploaded a new version, only change being that it's compiled for the 'reach' XNA profile, which allow it to work on most every system. Should have done that before I even started!

    Built from the ground up with C#, XNA, and the Farseer Physics Engine.

    You'll need the XNA 4.0 Redistributable, you can grab it here: http://www.microsoft.com/download/en/details.aspx?id=20914

    This is my first compo, wow what a blast! I am well and truly drained. Lots of fun, though!

    Let me know what you think!

    Really, really challenging. Very pretty, very clever. Good job.

    If you get a crash at startup, install the XNA 4.0 redistributable... that should fix it!

    Turns out, you might also need the .NET 4.0 redistributable. :shakes fist angrily at microsoft:

    It's a bit hard. I'm also stealing your XNA/.NET links :P

    hard, but in a challenging way, platformer with a lot of slimes is excellent :)

    Looks awesome, sorry I can't play on Linux (it doesn't work in WINE).

    I like where you were going with it, but control and collision problems are killing it for me. It seems that the slimes will randomly stop moving on me, refuse to jump, or that the little bullets will kill guys before it actually touches them :(

    Just a little too hard for me (bullets are a pain), but hey, controlling many slimes at the same time? Awesome idea! Besides, they're sooo cuuute! :D Good game!

    Ha! this is great. And cute. Nice work!

    Umm.. did you copy me? You even added the "!" to your games name.

    tgijsola says ...
    Aug 30, 2011 @ 8:37am

    As I explained in email, no. Your game is two years old and completely different from mine in gameplay and style. We share a name, but that's about it!

    Nice game, though, I love Lemmings!

    Yea, I jumped the gun there. My bad, I never meant to accuse you of anything. I was mostly just surprised by the title. It was dumb to post what I did. I hope no one rated your game less because of my post.
