by Marcellus - 48 Hour Compo Entry

Hello everyone and thanks for being washed up here.

This is my very first game I hope you'll be indulgent.

I made it in about 44 hours, using construct 2, windows recorder,, MS paint, LMMS, a lot of beer and a site to convert .wma in .wav.

The source of my inspiration is the garden I have before my eyes and all my friends settled here for the last few days.

The controls are pretty basics WASD for movement, click to throw stuff at enemies and dodge the bullets they send you.

The Final Boss is pretty easy but every attempt I did to balance him made him absolutely un-kill-able. I guess It's better this way then, this game is not about dying bazillion times.

I'm sorry about the lame theme approach but, as a first game, I had to learn how to use my tools and It took me about half the time I had to make a game. Better work next time I hope.

PS : Stay a while in game after the "End" to see credits.

Kind regards,

I think it bugged out for me. All I got was a gray screen with some particle effects. :(

I uploaded it on Kong, and it worked fine when I played it.

Pretty fun for your first game! I quite liked the sound design - it made nailing a row of jocks feel really rewarding ;)

I enjoyed this. It's a game that knows it isn't the best and embraces it. I really liked the humour and the simplicity of it. It took me way too long to figure out to shoot at your face rather than just at the impending apocalypse.

Overall good first entry, the first entry is always the hardest!

Bass sound when dying was really loud, the voices were fun for sure. Looked like paint was used for art, but had an interesting concept. I've never thrown apples at people in a game before haha!

That was actually fairly difficult. The enjoyed the last boss. the "kill enemy" noise drove me crazy after the first 5 times I heard it.

I'm sound designer and you made me laugh :D 5/5 humor :D Good work !

thanks all for your comments, about the sound volumes, I really couldn't manage to balance everything as I could only try the game on my own computer (and it sounded fine but with too low volume).
Yes I used paint for about everything since it's the only picture software I know how to use. I'm not really a drawer.
Also I had no time to do better gfx, my only regret is that I wanted more of them. About one for every ingame action. But I had no microphone but the one next to my webcam on my laptop, and recording myself hitting an apple with a stick to get a "on hit" sound was pretty dangerous for my screen, so I had to abandon the idea.

Some of my favourite audio and humour. A boss fight to go into the gaming hall of fame. Reminded me of the gameboy camera games. Good fun, make more!

Hmm, couldn't get past F7 at first. I'll just blame my keyboard and give you the benefit of the doubt. :)

Sep 6, 2013 @ 10:24am

AHAhaha what am I playing???
It's pretty amusing anyway! Absurd but amusing!

Sep 6, 2013 @ 10:27am

Ok the boss just scared the shit out of me >:[

F7? Why such a strange key? Especially since it's hard to use on a laptop.

44 hours you say? Don't you ever sleep or something? :D
You should suggest that to NASA - preventing an apocalypse with apples ^^

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.
