For the love of the king

by FlowerPower - 48 Hour Compo Entry

You are the king, and you hate the paupers who want to take your money, so you kill them.
For this, you have the wall, for each level you have one bow.
But if they still arrive at the river (you have to take them by silly laws...), they enter in city and become pauper but they give you some money :).
Each pauper on the city eats, if you have less than 1 "Stock", you lose.
Producer produce Stock (5 per 1), you can transform a Pauper to Producer (clik on the producer rectangle :o)).
Nobles give money for each pauper you kill.
Sometime (often) a hero come, if he arrive at the city, he will kill half noble and half producer

ps : bug on chrome/IE at the end, works on opera/firefox

Surprisingly fun as a test of mouse clicking endurance. If you can get past the early waves, don't convert everyone to nobles as you cannot restock producers.... With the right balance gigantic swaths of cash are available. Games running in another window and my 625 nobles with their 1000 arrows are up to just broke 100,000,000 They will soon starve though with only 3998 stock left.... 229941 dead at the message...
I had no sound, but I'm not sure if there is anything to hear... left it as N/A.

Took me a while to get just what made you win lose, and often bugs out into a loop when you do lose.
Definitely made me feel very villainous though!

Took a few moments to understand what's going on. Quickly became a blood bath =)

Couldn't play it on chrome. First it loaded but the game screen was white with some arrows flying. Then I refreshed and Chrome couldn't find the page. Too bad, it seemed like a good one :(

Took me a while to get what was going one. I think my mouse would get upset if I played this too much.

Even if the core gameplay looks cool, I didn't understand clearly what I have to do, and how to win or perform a better score.

Quite nice quick game. A little confusing though, you don't know how much it costs to upgrade stuff :(. Animation is also broken. I love the massive numbers of people that are killed by my wall of arrows.

A surprisingly good game for being so simple, though the difficulty level does ramp up way too quickly in the beginning only to then flatten out rather fast and become something more of an interactive murder screensaver.

Took me a few tries to reach the point where you generate endless money and stock. Pretty interesting to figure out the right balance at the start.

I was a bit confused to begin with, it just seemed like I had to click a lot on the boxes on the right. Seems looking at tim_u's post that there is some strategy but I rather missed that :-)

other than infinite loop its great

Would be nice to control each number up and down.

The game is a bit hard to get, you should add a little tutorial, because I'm still not sure howw it workds exactly. the problem might be it's going a bit too fast...I just blinked and there was a HUGE amount of paupers running for my city!
It would be funny to let the player shoot at the paupers, a multitasking game with skills and strategy.^^

IMPORTANT NOTE: If you want to place in the final results, you NEED votes. The easiest way to get votes is by rating other games. Judging lasts for 3 weeks following the end of Ludum Dare. For best effect, rate 20 games as soon as possible. Rating more games is encouraged.


REMEMBER: The “Theme” category is only for the main theme (You are the Villain). Don’t penalize for not using Goats.

TEAMS: Teams entering the Jam should pick a single representative to submit your game, or create a team specific account you can share. We currently do not support Team Voting, but sharing an account and together playing and rating games is acceptable.

NOT LOGGED IN?: If you get a message about not being logged in, even though you are, it’s because your web browser cached the non-logged in page. You can fix this by either refreshing your cache or clearing your cache. CTRL+F5 in many browsers. Chrome is a bit more work. Press F12 to enable Developer Mode, then you can right click on the refresh button and select “Empty Cache and Hard Reload”. This option is unavailable if you are not in Developer Mode.

We’ve identified the problem, and should have the page caching bugs fixed for next Ludum Dare.

PORTS: Ports to other platforms can be done after the deadline. That said, the sooner you finish your port, the sooner people can play your game, improving your chances of placing in the final results. For best results, provide a Web version of your game, or a Windows version with no dependencies. Also be sure to rate about 20 games to improve your visibility.

MY GAME DOESN’T SHOW UP: If you can’t find your game, it’s usually because the URL to your downloads are missing ‘http://‘. Fix your URLs ( and you will show up.

MY GAME CRASHES, IS UNBEATABLE, OR I MADE A TYPO: We allow you to fix crash or win condition bugs after the deadline (in a sense, like “porting” to support more players). We also allow “typo” bugs. I.e. A true that should have been a false, a word that should have been a different word, very tiny changes that you would have caught if you had more sleep. We leave this open to interpretation, but generally speaking your game should be identical to the game you submitted. No new features, just things you messed up last minute. Typos.
