Death Hockey

by Toby - 48 Hour Compo Entry

Evolution is about survival of the fittest... in this game it is your duty to sort out the slow ones which can't doge a circular saw. Enjoy a nice game of Death hockey, only instead of usual air hockey puck, you have a circular saw - oh yes, and there is a janitor, which cleans up...

CONTROLS: Just drag the blue hockey blob around and hit the saw-puck

OBJECTIVE: Kill as many "slow" creatures as possible. Each gives you a point. Crack your old high score... And listen to the janitor - he has important things to say...

Hey, I liked your game! Some nice humor to it, a (to me) kind of innovative idea!
As a suggestion, I think you could make the controls on the thing you grab with the mouse a little bit tighter, you know? the response of the blue ball thing is a little late, and I believe the game would benefit a lot from that change!

Cheers! Good game!

The game itself is good but the it was the janitor that kept me playing till the end.

Wasn't sure what to expect with this one but it was actually fun and pretty funny. Solid, simple mechanic although a bit difficult to control at times. The cleaner was a nice touch.

Found the game funny, but there didn't seem to be a losing condition. I let some animals get through but didn't notice any difference in the game (like a loss of life or a quota of deaths, etc.)

Aug 27, 2012 @ 9:55pm

hahahaha funny game xD nice work man n.n

Some of the text that the janitor was saying I found hard to read (white on grey).

Can't play the game. Throw an error on launch: "Could not find MSVCP100D.dll"

The janitor is an awesome idea!

Hahaha! Brilliant.

Please tell me there were 1000 kittens in the end?

Also: I love how, after the janitor comments on the music making you crazy, it eventually fades out. I think "wow. it stopped! maybe that's a mistak... oh. it's started again." ^_^

Could not find MSVCP100D.dll. Could you please reupload the archive bundled with necessary DLL? Thanks. And I'm running the Windows XP here, maybe that's why I don't have it :).

THAT. MUSIC!

Cool idea! Like the janitor too.

MSVCP100D.dll is shipped with Visual Studio Express 2010 - I can't ship the all with the game... you need to download the resdist package as described in the README

AAAHHH KITTENS! GOTTA... KILL.. EM... ALL (and the audio messes with my head, too ;)!!!!
Nice Idea, really tricky controls mixed with hack & slay & TD. I like it!

Janitor is great ;-)

I'll start with the bad:
The collision with the saw feels a bit wonky here and there and the gameplay is a bit repetitive (perhaps adding some powerups or so would be fun). Didn't really see anything with evolution either.

The good:
You made me chuckle quite a few times, that janitor is the best thing since sliced bread. The concept is pretty darn cool and it was quite addicting. Great work there.

Awesome! Good basic idea, nice controls and graphics, 150% Boost for the janitor! :D

I don't have Could not find MSVCP100D.dll. Why would you release your game in debug mode? Please make a release version.

sev_inf says ...

VS2010 redist is installed, but still can't run the game. MSVCP100D.dll not found.

someone says ...
Sep 11, 2012 @ 5:05pm

Can't play as you released the windows version in debug mode rather than release mode.

sorry
cant run

garygreen says ...
Sep 12, 2012 @ 11:32pm

Unfortunately I can't run it either. I have the same problem with MSVCP100D.dll missing.

Dll missing... :( You should pack what you use together or at least provide a download link here!

Many LOLz :) Despite the ropey programmer art, this reeks of polish and humor. The janitor was GOLD. Also liked the touches like blood slowly accumulating on the saw blade. Main music loop got a bit old but the title music was nice ... maybe a longer in game loop, or just mix it up with the title music. (Minor gripe: Doesn't respect the Android app life cycle ... music still playing when backgrounded, no Back button support).

Everything worked fine on my phone, and this is a good start. Some more variety and tighter controls would take this to the next level.
