Sfrumz!

by Dialock - 48 Hour Compo Entry

Goal: Allow player to control village elder type guy loosely based on the smurfs. Issue commands to nearby "smurfs" like collect resources, attack target, build home. They were to only work when you were around watching. Otherwise they'd just goof off. Just like the smurfs, there is only one female which could lead to hideous mutated offspring. Also other villages were to come and attempt to take your female.

Result: Walk around play field an watch "smurfs" wander aimlessly.

I really can't figure out what to do. What are the evil Sfrumz? What are the mutated ones? Sad you couldn't finish the game the way you wanted. Just make sure people at least know what to do next time ;)

Sorry, only thing that can be done at this stage is walk around and watch the little guys wander aimlessly.

I would try it if you had a Web or OSX version.

What's the Setup.exe for?

too complicated to start (web version is always nice) and I didn't really understand what to do at all... Liked the graphics though

Too bad you couldn't finish it on time. You should press on and squeeze some gameplay into that demo.

It´s a bit confusing, but sympathetic graphics :)

This looks like a neat idea in the making; the graphics look good (I like the red anti-Smurfs), and it works and animates smoothly even with a big map.

I feel your pain -- I also had many goals for my game that went largely uncompleted.

I noticed that you worked quite hard in your map -- you have seemingly random images for each tile type, and you implemented tile transitions as well. Those looked really wicked -- but maybe next time you should concentrate on some features of your game before moving on to the bells and whistles?

cheers!

Can't wait until there is something to do! :-P

Er, it makes me nervous when I download a game and my system asks if I want to give it some kind of security clearance to install - I've never even seen this particular dialog... :/

Sorry, I can't play this as I don't have Windows.

You really should have said somewhere that it was an XNA game. XNA does not work in Linux using Wine. Also installers are not ideal for this competition as they are annoying when you are trying to play a lot of games.
