Spheres VS Cubes

by Markusn - Jam Entry

You are witness of an epic battle between Red Spheres and Green Cubes. Explore what is going on. Help your green friends to fight back Red's relentless attacks. Can you tip the scales to Green's victory?

Is: prototype. focus on creating a waging war atmosphere, player has limited yet critical influence

Is not: balanced. you can't win this thing right now, only prevent Red from winning

Will be: Definitely a future game. I love the "you are a small but important piece in the grand scheme of things" scenario :)

Use arrow keys to move. Space to shoot.

Goal is to fight the red spheres. Green will shoot Red, but then paralyze. Red will smash paralyzed Greens and duplicate.
Spawn Towers can take 50 hits. If Red hits you, you will respawn at start.

Lot's of improvement needed (especially mouse controls!), but I had lot's of family duties so have mercy :)

Very fun game!! Red won though :/ I really liked how simple the whole game is, just move around and eliminate those red suckers. Nicely done!

Something in there trying to get out. Not enough of an overview somehow... didn't feel like I could be tactical, but couldn't get strategic p.o.v. may just be me.

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.
