Robots vs. Evil Zombie Birds

by jaspreetdhanjan - 48 Hour Compo Entry

You are a flying robot spawned on a random floating island. The objective is to kill the infinitely generated zombie birds before they kill you with their acidic zombie poop! If you're lucky you'll spawn on a island with some shelter!

The game doesn't seem to work like a screenshot. :( I'd love to see some zombie birds.

Woops.. Looks like something went wrong with the JAR files. I'll try upload a new a new one. Sorry for any inconvenience.

Maybe you can put an executable file instead of a jar? I don't have a virtual machine on my work computer, so I can't test it right now.

I'm having a lot of problems with the exporting this game to a jar file. I would convert this to an .exe but the exporting the .jar isn't working for me. If anyone could get the source which I've linked above and compile to JAR themselves and send me a link that would be great. Otherwise the only option would be to compile the source code yourselves.

No game left behind, here you go! The jar runs with graphics for me.

Looks like a resource loading issue from jar. Cheated by moving the files in your packages and changing the paths a bit.

Nice little game, plus death by bird poop is always funny!

Sweet little game :)

DaanVanYperen: Thank you very much! I've update all of the links. Everything should be working. Thanks for your feedback :)

It almost requires three hands to play, since the keyboard buttons are so far apart, and you need the mouse to attack. If you'd alias jump to the up arrow / W, you'd gain a ton in playability.

Is it normal that the birds are pooping like machineguns? I am not sure if there is a frame-limiting (timing) problem, or if this is indented. Because right now they destroy me within two seconds when I stand still.

klianc09, Yes, this is intentional. Makes it more fun, I think!

Darien, I like to play with the WASD keys on my left hand and use the jump ability to fly. Whilst using my right hand to aim.

When I reached 1000 time my gun stopped shooting and I quickly died. Nice idea that need some work and balancing.

enjoyable game. but man what did those birds eat?

Sep 1, 2013 @ 10:11am

Got a score of 341. What I don't get is that I'm firing left most of the time, or down-left. Aiming is really off! A restart button is always nice too.

Criticism aside, it's still a fun little game to play. I like how there are multiple maps :)

Got it after the third try!
It's cool how you have to use the terrain!

Not too shabby, congratulations on your first entry!

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.
