Infect

by Timster Studios - Jam Entry

Instructions:

1. Unzip file.
2. Right click setup.exe and Run as Administrator.
3. '1' to spawn bacteria, '2' to spawn virus, 'Escape' to quit.

-----

Description:

Infect is a Tower Offense game. The goal is to spawn bacteria and viruses with your DNA to try and outwit the deadly white blood cells. You gain DNA for each neutralized white blood cell, and for any bacteria/viruses that reach the main bloodstream.

-----

Notes:

While it's not quite the game I envisioned, I'm still proud of how far this came in only 72 hours. The game mechanics were mostly completed, but I would have liked to make the game into something more than just one level.

The Game was very... not so good.
But music was great.

I can't seem to find a good combination to defeat the blue towers at the end. The last six are always left.

The reverse-tower defense is an interesting idea, but it could use some more content and polish.

I thought the controls the game very difficult to understand without explanation at the beginning, but later learned that the game was easy to play. The latest towers are very difficult!

Neat idea, seems like you got the core mechanics down, and it would be interesting to see this idea taken further. It would be helpful to explain the controls somewhere, it took me a while to figure out what buttons to press.

Awesome music, and awesome idea, but it was a little too hard, and it would have been nicer to have more things explained (e.g. the stats of the different units, and towers).

It sure did make me nervous running an executable called "infect"

Good game, but one does not simply beat the last 6 towers :).

Playing this game was funny, despite the fact I don't know what exactly should be evolution in this one. I can't give more than one star in inovation, it's classic tower atack.

there wasn't that much strategy involved which is where it kind of falls through. the music was excellent though.

mhm... pretty original. I was expecting a normal tower defence =)

able to get 4 remaining, seemed best to spam bacteria rather than virus(too slow)

So this is the umpteenth bottom-of-my-barrel game I can't play because it needs XNA, and WINE doesn't do XNA. Screenshots were very alluring to me, too.

Nice idea, found it pretty hard though. Music was fantastic
