BeetleVenture

by Nidjo123 - 48 Hour Compo Entry

This is a simple game I made in 48 hours in which you're a little bug that has to kill a boss after a wave of green enemies... Cool story, isn't it? This is also my first time participating in Ludum Dare and my second time ever making a game. I learned a lot from this and I'll definitely improve in gamemaking. This game could be a lot better, in a technical and in lot of other ways but I think it's at least some good. I'm definitely looking forward for the next Ludum Dare!

Sound effects are annoying. Pleasing graphics. Gameplay could use some enhancement. All in all, good work.

I like that the player can land, but the graphics make it look like you're underground. Also, the fact that you can shoot the bullets makes the boss fight pretty easy. Congratulations on completing your second game!

Thank you both for your thoughts about the game! Oh, and the landing was kinda made so that the bug can land on the panel, not the background. That's more like hidden feature or something like that. I'm glad you like it.

I like the insect theme (for tiny world). Game was pretty laggard... it could have been faster paced. Good overall though.

Nice little game. Gameplay shold be ramped up a little bit, as should the backgrounds.

Well done, overall.

Good job on finishing your first LD! I enjoyed the game and hope to see you at more LD's in the future :)

why not divide every health by 10? :)

The shooting sound started to pitch my ear a bit, so I had to turn the volume down, and maybe some bug flying sound could've easily fitted the game to enhance the audio experience

Nice work with implementing the theme, the background is very cool and made playing the game very pleasant. Could've used a bit more varied gameplay and more sophisticated AI for the boss, which made me just spam space and sometimes move up/down to avoid the boss' spam.

Not bad for your second game! I like the boss fight :)

Boss has a lot of health! SFX could use work, but I like the bug/garden thing going on, and the game is complete. Nice!

I got a trophy!

It's a beetle shooter! I was actually pretty surprised at that. I managed to keep most of my health until the boss, when I stopped paying attention a little bit and he chipped me down a little bit. Shooting the boss bullets does make it easier.

If this is your second game, don't stop making games! They're already fun!

Great job for your second game!
