The Tiny World of Buzz

by callidus - 48 Hour Compo Entry

NOTE: HTML5 game, so the audio is a bit poor and sometimes wont play :-(

You play as a worker bee, Buzz, fly about and collect your pollen quota, but don't get caught! Dangerous parasitic wasps will try and infect you when you land on a flower.

EDIT: OK finally found out how to edit your submission posts, web link in the post now points to hosting that works.

Bah! My Web hosting just went down the day after Ludum Dare :( Worst timing ever. Anyway if you go here http://dl.dropbox.com/u/971318/LD23/index.html the game should still work being served from dropbox, loading times are long though.

Took me a second to realise the controls but pretty awesome ^_^

I'm really liking HTML5 as a 2D game engine.

I really love it, the audio and controls were slightly off but it was really smooth (on my lowend work machine) and good fun.

The page just says "This Account Has Been Suspended".

The Web link only shows a message "Account suspended".

Pretty good game, really smooth for a browser game.

I can't die, is this normal?

Really fun, great game! It opens up a whole new world of possibility to HTML5 games (which was previously none in my mind) :)

It took me a while to figure out the goal. I think I was thrown by the fact that the sound effect when you land on a flower sounds like you're getting hurt, but I suppose it's a happy buzz.

Thanks for the comments everyone, please note that because of a hosting issue the game is at http://dl.dropbox.com/u/971318/LD23/index.htm NOT in the link in the post :-(

Way too easy. You should add some more game mechanics!

It took a while to figure out that some things are in fact obstacles, and that wasps can only hurt you if you're on flowers but once I got that sorted I made short work out of kiting the wasps and doing little drive by swoops of the flowers.

Really great graphics. It would be nice if you could go from one level to another more smoothly.

Not really a good game, but at least it fits the theme quite well

Some explanation of the controls and the objective (in-game) would be nice. Also, dying or completing the objective just freezes up confusingly.

Not bad little game, enemies seem to get stuck on the world.

Good one! As someone said, It'd be great if you changed the level automatically after winning.

This actually controls very well. If there were some projectiles to shoot etc. this could be a very fun game.

Atrocious menus.

I think this suites the theme very well. The sound effects are kind of disturbing. The game was both fun and frustrating for me; I don't know exactly how to avoid many parasites.

The art was fun, flowers looked like red tortilla chips. The sound was very harsh, it made me cry inside. The game itself was about in-between -- the fast motion of the bee was very bee-like, and the patrol behavior of the wasps were aggressive, but not too much so. Presentation-wise, it was super bugly when the game just ended upon death or success. I would have loved to see some effects and animations on those bug characters. Also, music would have added a ton of atmosphere. Overall, insect-tacular!

Not bad at all. The sound affects are quite annoying though. Anyway, Good Job!

I enjoyed the visuals and flying around dodging the wasps. As others have already said, more levels and a legitimate level select and ending would have been nice.
