Super Monster Attack

by daandruff - 48 Hour Compo Entry

The earth is invaded... Save it!

You are recruiting fighters to defend of the ever growing monster hordes. You have three types of fighters to choose from;

White: Weak fighters but hard hitters
Green: Your average fighter, not weak, not strong
Blue: Takes a great deal of damage before he's down, but doesn't hit very hard

Every wave you have the choice to increase the amount of money you earn every wave (Coin+) or the amount of HP your fighters spawn with (Shield+).

Now, get out there and fight!

Really great art style and animations; coin explosions was very satisfying. I just felt like I wasn't making any tactical decisions. Just need to buy more guys each turn and hope the monsters don't have more.

I couldn't get it to run, I'm stuck at the title screen. Do I have to press something?
Please provide some basic control instructions - I really want to play this game :D

(putting 'Super' in front of the name of a game makes it 10 times more fun, scientifically proven)

@Orni - You should just press the two swords to start the game :) (And I will update with some instructions)

Really great to look at, but for my eyes the contrast between different unit types is too low. Took me a while to figure out how to start the game :p

Very cool game. I like the graphics, but after a few rounds, the UI dissapears, and it's impossible to play :(

Really nice entry I enjoyed playing ! I fell balancing could be improved : i just "beat" (been overpowered) by only buying green ones and shield every turn.
Had fun so thanks for the game =)

Love the art! The voices and the ambient wind noises are really awesome.
It wasn't clear to me in the beginning what the colors were. They all seemed pretty close to white or a bright grey.
I also did't really feel that my decisions mattered all that much.

Pretty good game though

I really liked this one. Everything felt good, the coins flying, the attack animations. You should work on this more after the compo.

This is simply amazing and super fun!
And the game is also really polished!

Great job! =D

I played the game until it crashed violently. It was mindless, it wasn't strategic at all... BUT I LOVED IT! Buy more guys, fight fight, buy more, fight fight, next wave, buy buy, fight fight, AAAAAA!!! You nailed the graphics, animation and sound and I loved the gameplay, but even I must say - it could use some more variation.

Expand it, you got the feel right :).

Love it! Tower defence to its minimum expression. Graphics and sound are awesome too, very good job!

Great game, very polished feel and a surprising amount of depth to the relatively simple gameplay. Nice job.

Will there be a Windows 32bit version? Sadly I can't start it. (Windows XP, 32bit)

An minimal RPG battle/TD. Good realisation.

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.
