Vac-Man

by rhaasken - 48 Hour Compo Entry

Play as Vac-Man, a miniature robotic vacuum cleaner, as you attempt to protect the house from the dust bunny invasion!

Controls:
z - accelerate towards the mouse position
x - brake
c - vacuum up dust piles (avoid overheating)

Goal:
Shoot the bunnies with the popcorn that you pick up. Then vacuum up the dust piles they leave behind. Get consecutive hits to increase your score multiplier up to 8x. If there are too many dust piles on the screen, you lose!

I enjoyed the guitar track immensely. Nothing takes the stress out of nuking dustbunnies like a soothing acoustic guitar.

Congratulations on finishing LD23!

When I try to accelerate, vacuuman simply vanishes.

Nice job, though I didn't get any background music in chrome :-(

I'm on a windows machine and the game doesn't work for me, I hit windows or web and I get to the same location where it looks as if the screen has split across the page and when I hit a control vac-man disappears :(

Weird controls but fun concept. Sprites could be a bit more easy to differentiate. Thanks for using this good guitar music instead of vacuum sound :)

Thanks for your comments everybody! Please use chrome to play it. I don't think it works in other browsers, and I don't really know why.

The controls are a bit annoying, and the game gets boring a bit too fast (for me anyway)

The music is good though, and I don't think anyone can argue about the fact the game is original, lolol. XD

Surprisingly fun. The imprecise controls definitely help.
