QuickWar

by XtremePrime - 48 Hour Compo Entry

<WIP>

Controls:
R - Reload (WARNING: Reloading dismisses any ammo you have in current clip)
W/S/A/D - Movement
SPACE - Fire weapon
V - Melee Attack
L-SHIFT - Sprint (If Stamina reaches 0, you have to wait for it to reach 100 again, so run wisely)

Bugs list:
- Having a weapon, dropping it and then picking it up again doesn't reset the current clip ammo.
- Deafening Game Over sound (possibly multiple calls on the Sound.DEATH.play() method)

No offense, dude, but this look rather like an prototype then a game itself, music is pretty fine though

I love this! Awesome job for 48 hours. The music is great, the visuals aren't bad for LWJGL and you played to the theme well.
I got to wave 12 on my second try. A good mix of hard and reasonable. I liked the weapon upgrades, G to drop was a little bit eh, but oh well. The GUI was very nice. GOOD work. Keep it up, man. I can't wait to see what you come up with next time!

good game, liked it a lot. Control scheme needs improving, and it gets pretty ridiculous at times, but love the concept. However, it made a horrible deafening sound at Game Over, is it supposed to?

@Pickens Inc: Sadly it does not. I am unsure if rules allow me to fix that or not. As far as I am aware, you are only allowed to fix bugs that make the game unplayable.
Pardon once again for the bugs.

It's a shame the game didn't have some slighty better graphics. Just having them as circles or such with the hp better well-centered would be an improvement, and a smiley face or whatever for ours?
Still managed to be sort of fun. G to dropping a gun to pick a katana over and over got frustrating! Music fit it well.

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 (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.
