Germa

by kbdmaster - 48 Hour Compo Entry

A game I made for Ld 24 , My first LD !
You can play it on Kongregate or on Web ( No exe , exporter not stable )
To start , I wanna thank my parents and my grand-mother for supporting me and my brother to beta-testing my game

Couldn't add music , but I did my best ( I had 14 hours free ) !

** Controls appear in the Kongregate Version **

Missing audio, some blops would have been nice and some music. Nice little game, would work great on touchscreens.
Well done!

Nice! I'm not sure if the mechanics are obvious to someone who hasn't played Osmos, so some instructions would be handy. Too bad you didn't have time to put in the ejection of your own mass to gain speed; that's one of the key things that make Osmos so tense at times.

audio and more effects would make this game superb - feels like OSMO (or however that game is called)

good job

Pretty close to the game Osmos, I like that concept though! Graphics could perhaps been a little more polished.

Not bad, it definitely needs some audio to capture the feel of Osmos though. And I ended up stuck against a wall. :/

Despite that, this game is good. :)

The concept was okay, but it could have used sound. I've seen better versions of the same concept in this LD.

Instructions would be handy - I see people referring to "osmos" but I haven't played it. I worked out what to do and it was strangely addicting, although sound definitely wouldn't have gone amiss, as well as some extra game mechanics - powerups?

Yeah, audio would have been nice! Pretty graphics. Depressing to have to start over when you die on level 9.

I think it could have used some visual feedback. Not being able to tell which other bacteria you can eat and not really being able to determine the direction you accelerate in made it kind of difficult to judge movement. The idea is familiar and solid, though; good job for your first time!

I like the fact that it uses clicks instead of the conventional way of WSAD

Game format was pretty standard, well done though. Wasn't a massive fan of the controls as it was pretty hard to control my direction (and ended up stuck in a corner for a while)

Love this game.. I agree with madpew.. it would be awesome with some music.. and sometimes you start and die..maybe your random position needs an adjustment.. xD

Being a person who played Osmos, I had no problem adapting to the controls. Although the thrust was a little too much than I wanted. As for me, there was no music at all. Not even sound effects. HTML5 problem, perhaps?

Aug 28, 2012 @ 12:23am

I really enjoyed this. The controls threw me off for the first few times due to the lack of instructions, but once I worked it out it was actually really good.

It also made me have to play differently to most games (I'm normally fairly run and gun), which was a nice change. My best was wave 7.

Interesting game! When you lose, the game should return to the level you lost. That would be more fun.

Nice simple scope. I got stuck in the corners a bit, though. Also didn't like starting again from wave 1.

Fantastic game KBD - loved the concept! It reminded me of Osmos on the android - keep up the good work :)

This game is addicting. Some background graphics and ambient sounds would have created a whole new atmosphere. But anyhow this game is fun and I fairly like it even though the game is a bit similar 'Osmos'. Well done :)

I've played up to Wave 15 , just to see how things get harder, put i find that after a while the maximum size for a germ is reached and you dont encounter wth bigger ones.

This can be a mobile platform game if you continue to work on that, specially wave system.

Well done man,I like how you used your time to focus on content, and I really enjoyed the use of simple graphics, it gave it a cool atmosphere. definately look forward to see where it goes from here.

Very simple game, congratulations on completing your first LD.

Simple and fun. Too bad it restarts at wave one - I've had couple cases when the initial placement was so unfortunate, I almost immediately touched something bigger.
Other than that, it's quite fun - I like it. Oh, the source link seems broken.

Yes Indeed @marudziik
