Evolve Arena

by Tinco & Jeroen - 48 Hour Compo Entry

Move around with wasd, look around with arrow keys, attack opponent with space bar.

The opponents are the players that start on the other side of the screen.

You kill them to get experience, 5 kills will level you up, then 10, then 20, then 40.

When all of your team is level 3 or higher, your team wins.

The game starts when each team has at least 2 players.

Sorry I hadn't enough time to finish it :(

Cheers,
Tinco

Really Fun, and abstract.

You actually managed to play a game with someone? :)

If someone wants to play this game I can recommend pasting the link on the irc channel or asking some friends. The game makes no sense when you're alone :)

It does make it harder to test it out... I'll try it later tonight.

well yes, testing alone is kinda pointless, too bad.

I think it crashed, rebooted it. But I'd recommend just not playing this when you're alone. Perhaps I should just retract the submission, don't know if that's possible.

So it's 4 person multiplayer? Unfortunately no-one else was online when I tried to play so it didn't really make much sense to me. Well done for tackling multiplayer in just 48 hours though!

No review, because there was no other player online.

So, does the game show when other people are online, then? Maybe we should organize a group playtest? I'll try being online at 2:00 p.m. CST (roughly two hours from now), to see if anyone else wants to give it a go. If no one shows up the first time, I'll check back at 3:00 p.m. and 4:00 p.m., as well.

it would be nice to have had an option to just play with bots, as well as having some indicator for what level you were. i was able to play it by myself just by opening a bunch of instances of it. it would have been nice to have known what was going on. very good try though!!

Err, the movement on the hex grid is.. different. Even just being able to see the corner points would have helped. A graphic for starting positions... anything to indicate a map would have added a lot. Bot targets to attack, in single player mode or otherwise... so many basic things missing. I almost cry as I rate this...
