SAD - Strategic Ant Destroyer

by Natura-Time - 48 Hour Compo Entry

SAD is between a time waster and a tower defense.
You have 10 seconds to kill a maximum of ants to earn gold !

The source is in the folder ;)
For Mac users : Try to type this on the terminal :
"cd Contents/MacOS
chmod +x LD27_NaturaTime"

(The game isn't finish but I'll try to do a better version in the next week.
I wanted to add more things but I didn't had the time ...
The gold is just a counter, the store is useless for the moment.)

Getting a lot of "missing or inaccessible" before that. The path seems to be incorrect. (e.g. The file "/Graph/Menu/screen.png" is missing or inaccessible, )

And then this one:
Exception in thread "Animation Thread" java.lang.NullPointerException

A nice try but a bit too fiddly to be fun.

Urfoex : With which version ? Because there is maybe some problems with the Mac and Linux ones.
DesignerNap : Like you said, it's a try :3

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 ( 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.
