    Nature Beat - Retroid - 48 Hour Compo Entry

    You play as the most dastardly villain known to man, Boris. His mission, smash as many animals at he can at his local park in one minute. His weapon of choice, a hammer.

    The web build might have performance issues on some computers so I would recommend playing on the desktop version for best performance.

    Move - Arrow Keys
    Smash Hammer - Z Button

    I like how you can pretty much herd all the animals into a corner and beat them as they try to escape ;-)

    Could have been improved with more sound effects, music, and more exaggerated hammer animation. Perhaps he could have lifted it over his head.

    The park clearly has an infestation. Boris is just doing some necessary wildlife management.

    Quite good fun, would be nice to see splatters or other feedback when you kill an animal though.

    Haha, this game amuses me. Felt like I needed to play some heavy metal music in the background.

    Fun little game, could've used sound effects and some visuals when you kill something (like spatters of blood).

    The game is nice, and it's always fun to smash things. But having some kind of lose condition (besides the timer) would improve it, I think.

    The shake when you hit is somewhat nausea-inducing, and a bit of feedback to tell that you killed something would go a long way.

    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 (http://mysite.com/mygame.zip) 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.
