Athletic's Foot - neosam - 48 Hour Compo Entry

Did you ever like to build your own athletic's foot? No? But anyway, now you can!

In this mini game you can build three different types of entities:
* HQ to get more space where you can build and to get more score but costs 300 cheese and 300 water
* transpore to fetch 60 water or 60 cheese from pores (cheese if the pore is infected or water if not)
* infector to infect pores

Transpores and Infectors can only be places around pores (green area). Just click to get a drop down menu to build and middle click to remove a fungi. If a HQ is destroyed, then all the fungi which are no more on the build space, are also destroyed!

But watch out, evil ants will attack and eat you and will never stop. You will have no chance against them (if there is no bug) but you can try to beat your highscore. Be careful if they attack your HQs!

The game stops if your cheese or water resources are less than 0 or if all your fungi are gone.

Requirements: Jave 6 should be enough for all systems. Just Doubleclick the jar file

Although I could run it, I couldn't really figure out what to do.

I bit confuse, but the idea is good.

Keep it up!

I got it running but I couldn't figure out how to play. I clicked around but nothing really happened except the counters and the top ran down until I lost. Sounds fun though

Okay so, as mentioned, I really didn't know how to play. You should really include instructions somewhere, that's really a crucial part.

I built an HQ or 2 but then an ant killed it and I died. Great use of the theme!

Friends also told me that the game is very confusing. I don't like it and I had no concept these two days.

I built several items but then I died. Needs tutorials or something?

Wasn't really sure how to avoid being defeated. I'm sure with a bit more instruction, the game would be playable.

I'm not really sure what happened... I just know I was defeated.

Not all that confusing once I had read the explanations, a nice concept, but a little on the hard and unforgiving side, its really hard to actually get usage over 0 and not get eaten in 5 seconds

I don't really know what I'm supposed to do.

Oh noes! I need more cheese! Hehe, this was certainly a very *interesting* interpretation of the theme. It took me a handful of tries to figure out a way to survive more then just a few seconds, but when I got the hang of it I found myself enjoying the challenge. It could have used some more options tho in order to make it last longer.

Kind of fun, took a minute to figure out the controls and how to play but made sense after that. A bit difficult to get started, have to restart to get a good initial setup.
