Internal Monsters

by mherkender - 48 Hour Compo Entry

A tower defense game set in the human body.

The rules
- If bacteria get past your defenses you lose 200 energy.
- If you lose all your energy, you're dead.
- Press N to use 100 energy to create a Neutrophil that eats bacteria.
- Tiny viruses will take over your Neutrophils if too many attack them.
- Press B to use 200 energy to create a B Cell which shoots Antibodies to kill viruses.

Hold onto your energy early until you need it.

I can't do anything! Only stare at the organism while are floating down :O

I was going to agree/backup Lidfrid (had a message all written out) but checked the instructions again and spotted:
- Press N to use 100 energy to create a Neutrophil that eats bacteria.
This is completly arbitrary/unintuative needs to be front and center and would have preferably been in game.
That being said, I liked the idea, sort of a tower defence - tetris/columns mashup, but found it too unforgiving. I could place 2... things down and successfully defend against 2... nemies but as soon as the 3rd rolled in I didn't have enough energy and had no chance of covering the entire screen and the penalty meant it was an insta game over every time :(

This game looks great and I love the thumping heart sound effects. I think the game is done well it just needs a bit of balancing and maybe some more variety / challenge. Nice work.
