Mug for Drugs

by fakeshadows - 48 Hour Compo Entry

Real-time Dopewars/Drugwars style game.

Controls: Arrow keys for movement. Esc to pause. Z and X to interact with NPCs*.
Objective: Pay off your loan by dealing and mugging. Avoid the police!
Tips: Helping old grannies will reduce your notoriety.

*You use Z and X to interact with the NPCs. You can't interact with them all straight away. The only thing you can do at the start is to mug one of the old ladies.

As you gain more money and resources you should be able to interact with more of the NPCs. Other "shop" items/interactions are displayed at the top-left as they become available.

The main gameplay is playing the buy/sell prices of one dealer against another to reach the loan price before the time runs out or you get killed by the police.

I had one problem playing the game... when I press UP or DOWN, the browser also scrolls up and down.

I didn't downrate the game because of this, but if there's anyway to fix this, I think it would be a good idea to do it.
I am using Google Chrome on Windows 7 here.

Thanks for the feedback. I've changed the styles on the site so it shouldn't scroll the screen.

We can move, we can pause, but what is the gameplay?

Ah crap I thought it'd become apparent as you moved around.

You use Z and X to interact with the NPCs. You can't interact with them all straight away. The only thing you can do at the start is to mug one of the old ladies.

As you gain more money and resources you should be able to interact with more of the NPCs. Other "shop" items/interactions are displayed at the top-left as they become available.

Cool game, javascript ftw! One tiny bug: using a german keyboard layout, I am having a hard time pressing "X" and "Z", because they are so far apart (we have Z and Y switched over here).

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.

MORE TIPS AND DETAILS AT THE BOTTOM OF THIS PAGE

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.
