Mission CALLISTO

by Rongon - 48 Hour Compo Entry

Space exploration game, worked between themes 'You only get one' and 'Colonisation sim'.

You need to colonize the Callisto moon, second biggest Jupiter's moon with 4 rovers.
Since there is a lot of distance between Earth and Callisto, YOU ONLY GET ONE command per 2s!!!

Mine the ore (green) and transport it back to base (red).
Move around mountains (brown) and beware of the sand pits (black), by watching for sand (yellow) which surrounds them.
Rovers have also limited power, so you need to return them to base to recharge.

Standard 1-4 for rovers.
NUMPAD/QWE-ASD-ZXC for commands.
P is cheat for showing whole map.

P.S. Didn't have time to implement building and more obstacles, which would maybe include some fun into this game :P

the "sending" bar kind of made me feel really pressured in what seems to be a fairly casual game. Maybe it would have been better to let the player control each rover individually in real time?

The idea is good. The music is cool and moody. The usage of the numpad is irritating. The hook with the theme could be better explored.

The music background creeps me out a little, some of its mechanics are a bit frustrating, so I didn't find a lot of fun ...
Maybe add more of it as a sim game where the player can add one simple "script" to the rover (like "Go South and Stop if Meet ore")

IMPORTANT NOTE: If you want to place in the final results, you NEED votes. The easiest way to get votes is by rating other games. Judging lasts for 3 weeks following the end of Ludum Dare. For best effect, rate 20 games as soon as possible. Rating more games is encouraged.

MORE TIPS AND DETAILS AT THE BOTTOM OF THIS PAGE

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.
