Mayor vs Aliens

by Sheepolution - 48 Hour Compo Entry

Aliens took all the dirt of our planet. Only a little dirt is left, and you are living on it. You are sick of those damn aliens. Don't let them steal a single piece of dirt! Because if they do, you will fall, and end up in space!

Awesome! Great theme and the gameplay works too. Although racking up massive scores got a little easy when there was a single block of ground left: you could very easily always block it from leaving the screen. :)

Thanks. Yes, I know about the trick, and should have done something about it. Maybe in the future, ever, someday, I will update the game.

also there is a bug when an alien gets trapped on the most right tile, so incoming aliens get bounced off by it and you only have to defend one side. Great idea and a great story. Enjoyed it very much. Thanks.

Good fun. Never before have I shouted "GIVE ME BACK MY DIRT YOU %*#$£@!!!" and really meant it. Well done :)

Great game, nice a simple. Pretty well balanced and tophat. Graphics left a little to be desired, but everything else was pretty spot on.

Awesome! I got a huge score by bouncing on aliens though, that might be a problem.

A nice idea, but I found there were too many actions for the mayor to perform. It was very hard to shoot on my laptop trackpad, and the aliens come very quickly.

Good complete work with music. This entry could have been improved by adding more animation.

P.s. It didn't work very well with my Nintendo power-glove or my Webkins(tm) but other-wise good stuff ;)

Great game, fun and easy to understand. Though i forgot to use the special. Just realizing when i was falling to my doom.

Loved it, only problem was that I got 95% of my score when there was 2 blocks of dirt left as I just kept bouncing on aliens and making sure to pick off the one or two that had the dirt. Great fun though :)

Really enjoyed this, great idea well executed.

Plus, any game where you wear a stovepipe hat gets extra votes from me... especially one that shoots rockets!

Unexpected error when running the game :(

@Andrew
Strange, not sure why you get that error. Just try it again, or maybe later when you have restarted your PC.

Works great, clear, clever and well executed link to the theme.

Also, tophats.

Cool! Could use balancing, and maybe a little more depth to the gameplay, but neat idea and fun story.

Haha that's funny man, everytime they managed to get away with a block i was like "NAAAAAW!!! Stop it!!". Really enjoyed playing it!

Nice game! The storyline was very interesting and funny. I liked the whole theme for the game. I did however find the game a bit too easy and I stopped playing once I realised I could pretty much not lose! All you have to do is hold the mouse button down and hold it above a patch of dirt, then when an alien takes the dirt it just flys up into your mouse cursor. You can also just jump on the same spot to ensure nothing gets past.

Nevertheless, really well polished fun game. The addition of online highscores is also excellent!

Well done! :)

I loved the whole concept of trading dirt for technology and then having no earth left to live on.

This is a very neat gameplay idea and the story was funny. I like the music a lot too! It's amazing you made more than one piece of music!

A few issues that emerged from the mechanics the way they're implemented right now were:

-Is the special attack any useful at all considering the enemies' behaviour?
-The end of the game tends to become a small piece of vertical land tiles. You can simply keep bouncing on top of the aliens that try to steal them forever; I gave up doing that after 5000pts.

Apart from that, gameplay is fun and I felt the player can always improve his abilities and try again, which is great for an endless game.

Also, I think I'd prefer if using the shotgun killed all enemies within the line of shooting, instead of only affecting a small area, but this is only my personal opinion =P

Good idea to include an online highscore chart!

Kudos!

This is friggin impossible! Funny story, a bit like mine :D. Controls were pretty smooth and all and it was fun to play until I realized it's not winnable...

It's an arcade game :P
So you are supposed to get the highest score possible, you can't win.

Great take with a twist on Space Invaders. Quite diificult with the jumping but good fun.

May 12, 2012 @ 10:21am

Love it! It was a little bit difficulte to play with a notebook touchpad but then again: my fault :D Simon

Nice fun game. Aiming was a bit weird (I never seemed to hit anything) so I mostly bounced. Got a score of 1500

Cannot play, don't have access to windows box :(

This game was cute and funny, though I found that I was just bouncing off the heads of a constant stream of aliens, shooting them out from under my feet. I felt I could go on forever with just that strategy alone.

I got to 10000 points before letting myself fall.
