Of Mice And Giants

by hyperturtle - 48 Hour Compo Entry

A game where you avoid being stepped on. Arrow keys to move. Press x to sprint. There's a sprint meter at the bottom. The only goal is to get as many things before you loose all 3 hearts.

Extract the zip into a folder and run the MOUSEANGEGIANTS.exe

For mac osx and linux, you can compile the source. It's a single .cpp file and depends on SFML and Boost.

Such a good job! The theme was perfect, the graphics were cute and teh sound worked very well! I think the only improvement could have been a level target and some kind of progression. Well done!

Great fun, very addictive. Very short sprint adds an interesting dimension. Musics and graphics fit really well.

cute and addictive, but way, way too easy. I got to 700 before finding out that cheese gave you health (I thought it was just awarded randomly) and then became a kind of immortal god-mouse who could walk under feet with no fear of repercussion. Got to 1111 before finally getting bored and committing suicide, which is by no means a criticism. I collected over 400 more things after any hint of challenge disappeared, which says a lot for the addictive nature of your game. Love the graphics, too

So adorable. The simplicity really works in the game's favor here.

This is one of the funniest entries I've played! The graphics are simple yet effective, the sound effects are good and the music makes an awesome mood. I loved the idea of being a mouse avoiding people's feet! =)

Too bad there aren't binaries for Mac and Linux. =/
(thankfully I use Windows)

Good gameplay, nice graphics and music.
For me, it felt like Gulliver's Travels if Gulliver was an asshole.
