Oh my gosh it's like a mini SimTower. Downloading it now!

Okay, so I was wrong. It's not just a mini SimTower! I love the game, but unfortunately it crashes whenever my soldiers attack. =(

Danggit, I thought I'd fixed that bug.

I'll upload a fix soon.

I really like this game. Simple and complex at the same time. The AI of the enemies might need some improving. I had no problems defeating the enemy on the first try with one warrior.

Neat game.
Needs building costs somewhere.

Really cool idea for matching minimalism with the sim genre. I enjoyed the concept - could use some tuning for costs/resources, but as a short game it's great.

Thank you all for the comments :)

The game is very unfinished right now, which I blame on my being too ambitious with the idea in the first place. I then had to cut out a lot of half-finished features. Maybe if I'd had a half-an-hour more, I would've been able to have tooltips for the building's costs and functions.

Pretty cool game! Nice Job. Fits the theme, and pretty ambitious for an LD game.

Is fun, but a little broken. Certain actions get you caught in a loop...

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.
