Count To Ten

by anotheryeti - 48 Hour Compo Entry

A short game where you play as the local anesthesiologist, sedating people. Try not to screw up!
For each patient, put the needle together, and then put it into the IV.

Could you please add some instructions on how to play? I want to play and rate this game but I honestly have no clue on what I'm supposed to be doing with the tools.

Yes! I beat it!
Challenging controls.
Very cool music.
Neat voice acting.
I liked the interpretation of the theme.
It was hilarious seeing the eyes go all lazy during the sedation.
Good job!

If anyone is wondering how to play, you must assemble the syringe and then inject it into the IV.

Oh I see. Thanks Fervir.
Well, the game is a bit challenging but definitely fun. Loved the "voice acting" and the music as well.
Nice take on the theme!

Pretty nice work! The sounds are great. The visuals are interesting. I would have liked clearer controls. (The first floor took me a good five minutes before I knew how to play. Hah.) Nice light maps! Keep it up!

This is the best competition entry I've played so far. You should rate some other people's entries so more people will see your game. Amazingly solid entry all around. The music and sound, the mood, the humor, the use of the theme, everything. Just awesome!

Thanks for the support! I kind of forgot that this was a competition as well, and didn't rate anyone's entries. Also, apologies for the complete lack of tutorial/guidance. I fell apart a few hours before the competition ended.

Haha, I got up to the already dead guy. One of the first humorous games I have found, plus a great interpretation of the theme. Most games I have played just use 10 seconds as a crutch for a wave starting or you need to finish a level in 10 seconds. This is actually something that is a very clever use of the theme. Bravo. Plus the graphics were perfect.

I love the dudes voice! Haha. Strange game, but I like it.

Love the use of physics!
It takes a bit of trying to figure out exaactly what you're supposed to do, but once you do, it gets really fun :D

The voices are hilarious, I love how the patient's eyes follow the needle and then they sorta drift off once they're sedated, an excellent touch to the game xD
Awesome graphics too, overall great game. You should get more ratings, play & rate more games when you get the chance!

Ah! I really like this one!
Unique and interesting presentation with the camera moving around, great art style and sounds. Pretty fun and a nice take on the theme.
Bonus points for the patient's eyes!
I agree with Sestren that more people need to see this entry, consider rating other games to get noticed :)

The only things taking away from this game were the short duration, and the repetitive nature of the gameplay when you don't get it right on the first try. Overall a solid entry.

Interesting game concept, nice graphics and audio. I like that the clock is unobtrusively integrated in the scenes. The controls are a bit hard and it would be nice to have some more variation.

On the next floor, its just way to hard to get the strait, swinging tube into the sideways double-syringe. Overall, pretty cool!

This game was surprisingly funny, Not sure what to do when a patient died though, wasn't if it was serious or intentionally funny. Only issue was having pivoted physics on the syringes made it a pain to move and put together.

Very nice little game. This should be used as a compulsory training aid in all hospitals!

The graphics, music and 'voice-acting' created a really nice, quirky mood and the gameplay was perfectly pitched - not too easy but not too frustrating either. Excellent!

Quirky and fun, this is a fine entry! A bit on the difficult side though ;)

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.
