Evolution of Business

by Matt - Jam Entry

The Evolution of Business.

You are a businessman.
You can upgrade your speed, armor and money multiplier.

Avoid the hippies and ghost hippies.
Everytime you get hit by one, you lose $25, 1 armor, 1 cashmultiplier
Win by getting to $10000.


Going to mention that this is my first LD ever.
First Jam for us. Another notch in the belt.

The game didn't say anything when I hit $10,000. :(

Armor doesn't seem to do anything...why does a businessman have armor anyway?

Kept me glued until I got all the money!

hey guys, sorry about not doing anything when hitting $1000. I had planned to have the game enter your current time on a global high score list to see who could get to $10000 fastest. The armor reduces the amount of money damage you take when hitting obstacles. Unfortunately the enemies damage was not programmed to increase so armor was less useful in this version of the game.

Very fun game, armor seemed kind of pointless. Some music would have been nice

Good job on reinforcing the controls and what does what, very refreshing from other obtuse games.

Played right up to 10,000 and had like level 40 everything. Super fun and addictive! Sucks that nothing cool happened though when I won. Still, had fun spending my 10,000 on decking my business man right out.

Really fun game! The graphics could be improved and could have used more music but I had a fun time playing this.

I like that the UI makes it very clear how to play.

I found the movement a little bit annoying. I would have liked to be able to change my mind while my character was sliding across, and go back the other way when I press the other direction key.

This is very entertaining! It kept me going for a good 10 minutes. I was disappointed however when I reached $10,000 and nothing happened. Also then I realised that you could just crash into hippies and get negative armour instead of losing.
