Men not wearing hats

by nilstastic - 48 Hour Compo Entry


Control with WASD, Fire with left mouse button.

Tip: If they catch you stealing, you loose life. Look at the resources and deposit them into their containers for a treat!

Story: On one side we have precious diamonds, on the other oil. User your mighty uzi of justice and limit the "men not wearing hats" growth! Let them never rise to the cultural and economic heights that we have! (or, not).

Tech: XNA, Lua, C# and my precious entity framework.

A restart button would be less frustratring!
I can't finish the game.. :(

It took me a while to work out what I was supposed to be doing, but I like the idea. It feels like it could do with being fleshed out some more though. e.g. the uzi seems a little unnecessary when you can just stomp on the little guys' heads.

I like the graphics, even though there is no music they give the game a unique feel. Enjoyed stomping the little white men.

mikolalysenko>> sorry about that. I have built some other games using mono but this one relies heavely on Lua so it's a bit more work to port. :/

it took me some time to get the idea of the game - but even afterwards I was a bit lost

in the end I just stomped all the little guys, which was quite some fun

Was kind lost in this game, it got better afterwards but its hard to grasp what to do

It looks very good on first sight and it's a pity that the game is quite unfinished. I spot some potential.

Enjoyed for a while after which I just got confused! After picking up any of the resources I was unable to fire again even after the resource had been dropped, also I wasn't sure where to take the resource so this might be the problem!

I like the "The End" sign dropping on to the level complete with collisions with the player and non-hatted men, unfortunately I had no idea why it had appeared - my character was still alive, running around stomping on little hatless people.

Why isn't the main character wearing a hat? :-)

I like the idea - love collecting - cute graphics. The sound didn't work on my pc - but otherwise I liked it!

Arkazon>> The plan is that you collect resources, and then use them in the thing in the middle to get coins that you then use on the weapons store or in the health store. Also, you loose health when the men not waring hats take resources from you. =)

I like the idea of collecting resources and buying ammo and health. A resource survival stomper.

Not sure what was happening! Liked how the gems stacked up on my hand though.

Another windows only game. :C

I have a mac, unfortunately.

Funny name, but I didn't get a thing about the game meaning. Just a prototype.

ok, stomping on little white guys is kinda funny. the diamonds and coins falling off the bottom of the screen confused me a little bit. i like how the ground comes up a little from the foot level to give a pseudo 3D effect.
