December 14th-17th 2012 :: Theme: You are the Villain

by Avian Flew - 48 Hour Compo Entry

VillainLike is a simple game with a simple premise; to build a dungeon to defend yourself from pesky invaders. It's a simple tower defense game mixed in with some randomly generated elements. The game may seem difficult at first, as it requires you to understand the hero's AI and how to syngergise your towers.

- Made with RPG Maker VX Ace (not required to play obviously)
- Arrow Keys to move cursor, Z to place objects
- I can't into sound

I think this is a neat twist on the tower defense type games. Controls were a little bit of a pain. I would prefer to be able to use the mouse for at least moving the cursor around. The countdown was also annoying. Once I had placed all the towers I could afford, I had to sit around and wait. A 'send wave now' button would be good. I think just having the "boss" in the level makes it kind of bare. Perhaps collecting gold off of some of the heroes who visit and having to store (and defend) it somewhere in the level would make more use of the map. Make it give you some kind of bonus. Flush out a few more anti-hero things and you've got something special.

The idea is not bad. There is a lack of interactivity during waves, and they are a bit slow, and teh fact that it pauses when not focused does not help. It could be improved with more types of towers, that need interaction. Maybe adding thresure zone could make it more interesting.

um. Same as the other guy. Nice twist in killing me off immediately by placing my guy next to where they spawn. hahaha. but, i found no way to speed up the time intervals you just wait. :P nagga. The pathing was strange, so setting up towers is difficult. Once towers are errected the single person going through is very hard. I survived one wave and died the next. :D

You must sign in to comment.

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.
