Node Hero

by Deadlyapps - 48 Hour Compo Entry

Red Gems allow the player to get bigger constructs to complete allowing them to score more points.

Green Gems are magnetic pulling red gems toward the player

Blue Gems give a 1 time use shield against bombs

Bombs are bombs

Constructs have nodes. Connect to nodes to activate joints. All joints and nodes activated complete a construct for points.

I liked it ^^ I just thought it was kinda confusing, sometimes there are lots of connected nodes, and sometimes not. It would be cool if it got harder over time, or just faster

An interesting entry. I like the sound effects, and the simple gameplay. The bombs do a good job of serving an antagonistic role.

The 'construct' concept is innovative, but a little too hard in this game

I found myself playing this longer than I expected. Fun game!

it was really fun. cool visuals. the only problem is that it's too easy. there's almost no way to die. if it got harder faster, i think it'd be more fun. cool though :)

Simple, fun, and addictive. I enjoyed it a lot. Didn't quite 'get' the construct part of the gameplay, but, well, it's hard to argue with the fun of collecting stuff and dodging bombs.

I couldn't play for more than 30 seconds, the music was too annoying.

Nice flow to it. Needs something of an obstacle or danger though, as it was right now, you could just relax and take it slowly and play on forever.

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.
