Get Your Goat

by torokokill - 48 Hour Compo Entry

You, the evil goat hating evil mastermind, have kidnapped the goat princess. Use your towers to fend off the angry masses trying to rescue her.

You have three different towers at your disposal to fend off the masses of three different types of enemies.
Shoot Tower- Fires fast travelling bullets at one enemy
Slow Tower- Fires a snaring beam of frost that does no damage but splashes to targets within the area
Melee Tower- A short range tower that deals splash damage to all nearby targets

Goat Knights- Knights who have sworn their life to the crown of the goat king. Average in all respects.
Goats- Minions of the goat king, they move fast, but have little health.
"Goat Kings"- Okay, they're green blobs. But they have a crown. As if the Goat King would actually go after his daughter himself.

I ran out of time to fully debug, play test, and polish. However, this is a fully functional game. I will definitely be doing some more testing, balancing and polishing. Enjoy my rushed programmer art and minimal sounds!

Well, it works. I can see you didn't have time to test as it doesn't get harder over time, and I get more money then I need to. Also, I got to wave 10 and nothing happened ^^

Ah yes, I've fixed the wave 10 bug. I'm calling it a typo as it was the difference between a > and < in an if statement.

It's generally a good game, but the buttons are a little bit hard to click. Also, the splash damage towers don't work sometimes. I like the goat. It's the best pixel art goat I've ever seen :)

Nice little tower defense game. Would have been nice to get more towers but and different levels, but great job.

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.
