Buggers!by recursor - 48 Hour Compo Entry
Being the "minimalist" that I am, I limited myself to black/white/gray colors for this game. Everything is ... minimal :)
You are a big strong guy who likes food (don't we all?). This guy just attracts bugs, or maybe the food he has scattered all over does. Anyway, these bugs are just nasty, and if they can manage it, they will steal your food and run off with it. The nerve of those bugs! Luckily there exists scattered about the playing field, food boxes. These food boxes will secure your food from all insec- no, actually ... not every bug.Grab all the food and put it in the food boxes before the bugs take it. If you can get all the food in the boxes, you win the level, or if you kill all the bugs you win. Also you can win if < 75% of the food is taken, but you really shouldn't let those nasty bugs get ANY food.
Move with arrow keys
Activate your bug sprayer with 'Z' to spray those horrible creatures!
If you run into any trouble, press 'R' to restart a level.
Spiders are smart and crafty and can steal food that is NOT in a food box.
Stingers are territorial. When they sting you, you can't use your sprayer for a time
Roaches are just nasty. To kill them you must step on them.
* Roaches and Stingers can steal food from food boxes
* When you are carrying food, you cannot use your sprayer
* In addition to disabling your sprayer for a time, when stingers sting you, they also make you drop your food briefly.

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.
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.
