Bat Massacre

by ItsSacraficed - 48 Hour Compo Entry

My officialy 3rd enter to LudumDare but second proper entry.

Mouse controlled game, click the bats and the bat will die and u will get points, between waves u can spent your points but in the end it all matters till what wave u made it and what your score is!

With Q u can toggle between batFx on or off.

Enjoy :)

Pretty cool game.
How did you get it to be a .jar and a .exe? just curious.

Thanks, erhm I used JarSplice, and normally my res folder would be in the jar but somehow that didn't work properly so I put it all in a jar.

A bit easy, i think 100 lives are too much

Aug 26, 2013 @ 10:13am

The bat-death noises remind me of Ultima Online. :D Nice game - some polish to the graphics and menus would make it even more appealing. The bats are just tiny enough to be infuriating :D

Hey there. Nice entry. I stopped after a few minutes, since my click finger got irritated. It's not anything I haven't seen before, but still a job well done.

@tiffy well yeah atm it is kinda easy but how I had it first it was kinda to hard so I tried to balance it and well this way it was nicest balance when you wanna get more expensive upgrades. @rusty Hehe thanks :) the menu buttons between waves are on purpose on the side else you would click on them all the time and I agree but okay :p, @mekuri thnx oh I never really had an irratating finger guess I'm used to click :P, and thanks :).

Needs some kind of weapon upgrade, as in 10 minutes I think I have clicked a weeks worth of Diablo :D

Nice game, would have loved to see a bigger cursor upgrade to kill bats in a wider radius. They really become too much around wave 20 and now my finger hurts.
But I had fun.

ItsSacraficed says ...
Aug 26, 2013 @ 11:07am

Yeah but I didnt really know what :p.

A simple yet fun game, well done. Apparently massacring bats is a very fun activity, especially with the squeking sound that they make :)

@HardScore hehe thanks :)

I hate to admit, but I played this for 30 minutes or so, got to level 79 and stopped only because my index finger started to hurt. :)

Well done, this is a good example of a game with just the core mechanics, plus something achievable.

By the way, the helper that says it costs 225 points actually costs only 200. :)

ItsSacraficed says ...
Aug 26, 2013 @ 12:11pm

@manabreak oh darnit well original price was 200 n then I thought I make it a bit harder to get but I guess I didnt change that price then in the code..

ItsSacraficed says ...
Aug 26, 2013 @ 12:24pm

Ok should been fixed minor bug not game changing so fits within the rules, to bad I'm not allowed to add another upgrade for mouse :P

It got me to play till level 20 but it kind of needed a few more mechanics / options / boss fights (?) ;)

ItsSacraficed says ...
Aug 26, 2013 @ 9:05pm

wave 20 is nothin :p wave 20 is still kinda easy but I'm adding more upgrades n such, so I got improved versions but Its not uploaded here because thats illegal. I think ill soon post link here in my post to no ludum version :), n thnx for the idea I'll try to put it in :)

Aug 26, 2013 @ 9:34pm

Oww, my finger hurts. :D Clicked at least 13 minutes and got to wave 81 before stopping. I guess it could have gone on forever. :D After getting all the upgrades it was just crazy clicking for 10 seconds, then more crazy clicking to refill HP (score was incrementing faster than I was able to spend it). So yea, probably needs some different weapons or something. But it was very addictive, I just _had_ to get all the upgrades. :D

ItsSacraficed says ...
Aug 26, 2013 @ 10:14pm

Hehe Yay Iknow that feeling :D, and yeah I'm making an improved version with some mouse upgrades(not to cheap tho) and maybe some big boss battles or so?, and yes it goes on for ever :p, well at least till u die.

Really addictive game!
With better graphics this game can be awesome

ItsSacraficed says ...
Aug 27, 2013 @ 12:48pm

Yeah working on a improved version atm :), so hopefully one day better graphics n HP is reduced to 50 might change that as well but this is the 48 hours version :).

Do you know how damn hard this is with a touchpad? >_<
Anyway, hooked up a mouse and tried this proper.

It's pretty fun, it could have done with more variety of powerups to keep interest for longer.

Nice work. The killing a bat sounds like "icky bottle" haha. At least you added sounds. Nice graphics. Good work! 5/10.

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.

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.
