Operation Big Bang

by Oreganik - 48 Hour Compo Entry

Why take apart bombs when you can blow stuff up!?

See if you can play with enough dials and buttons to take out the power station in 10 seconds!

Compo entry: just the one level.

Post-compo: anything beyond the first stage.

These buttons are great! I wish there was more time to fiddle with them and make things explode

OK! Post-compo version is up. I added the short intro audio and text that I had recorded (but forgot to implement), added a button to load the Practice level (so you can play around with stuff), tuned all of the stage values to make it more interesting, and added a Results page. For those of you scoring at home, that stuff just makes it all more fun, but shouldn't be part of the rankings. Thanks! Enjoy!

Can't say I figured out what I was doing but I seemed to succeed a few times randomly, mostly just exploded the equipment or was too late! Good job on the art and sounds. If you find some time please rate mine:

I like the concept very much ! Really innovative idea. Made me feel like Homer Simpson in the nuclear plant. ;)

"Why take apart bombs when you can blow stuff up!?" My kind of game! :-D

It's a great concept, but in practice it often seems like I'm just hitting buttons at random. I think a longer time limit could really do wonders.

It's better to blow stuff up, I agree :)

Neat. I could see this extended to all kinds of other units.

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 ( 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.
