SAVE YOUR FOLKS! - ilikescifi - 48 Hour Compo Entry

Save your folks! Or just dont....

Its a physics fun tower destroy part time zombie slasher but mainly folks saving... ahm ok i have lost the point. But it is pretty self explaining while you are playing it:

Let different box buildings crash WITHOUT harming too many folks below it. There is altough one big exception:Sometimes there are Zombies around. I guess you know what to do then... :)

Export: Exe and Flash

So play it on your computer or in your browser!

Good luck eveyone!

Good fun, you should totally do a post-compo version with more levels!

Web version wouldn't get past the first level. Standalone version working and cleared :) Fun game, wouldn't mind playing some more levels

I like it.
The plane flying over the city is a good detail :)

Funny game, enjoyed playing it. Doesn't really have much connection with the theme, though. Neat twist on the last level. :)

Nice game! But it's hard to put the theme on this. I liked the musics and the pixels.

Not sure how the theme fits in... but was really fun!

Thx for your comment guys. Well I thought "tiny world" -> lets face it that we are all living on a tiny world. So i thought of a "oh man, how small everyone of us is in comp. to the universe" - but yea... i would have needed a couple of years to create a game to this topic :) So i thought of a tiny city (sim city like)... and then i had this physics idea .. smash a city...and so on and so on... so the base idea was fitting perfectly to the theme, but i guess you know how we work when we are in this creativity bubble :)

What do you think? The Zombie feature is pretty funny in some way. Should i put more zombies in it?

What a fun little game. I remember really liking the title and concept from your blog postings and now playing the game is just as much fun as it sounded.

I'm also having the same web issue with the game not advancing past level 1, but the exe works fine.

One thing I wished was that the explosions applied an impulse to the surrounding blocks, but I can imagine how that would make your level design harder to do.

I bet Fred Dibnah would have liked this.

Thx again guys!
@ dr_soda: Yes I tried to implement expolsion impulses but as you said - it bounces up the complexity of the gameply to the double. So i kept it simple :)

this was a lot of fun!
blowing stuff up is always a lot of fun - especially if you have to make sure to not kill little swarming people

the only thing I'd like to add would be some explosion shockwaves - the building pieces don't seem affected by the detonations

I <3 this game

Few issues:

Sometimes a long piece lands, and waggles back and forth for awhile.
The text should probably be in front of the cloud when it tells me I'm awesome?

Neat idea and well executed. Wish the twist with the zombies would last longer. :) Good job!

Nice humour. It seemed to take a while to get going, but I enjoyed the levels with both zombies and people best.

Also, the cursor appears to go behind the 'again' and 'exit' buttons.

Nice fun game! But there's a problem. Where is the motivation to save the French? :D

D'oh! Sorry.

I really enjoyed it.
