EvA: Engineers vs Artists

by Hayawi - 48 Hour Compo Entry

Straight forward. You are the Engineers, they are the Artists. Destroy their base and you win. You only get one life, so don't lose your base to the Artists.

It seems you did not really finish.
I try to be objective and I am sorry if I am too harsh. So here are some critique points:
-You got only one life - calling the state "loosing the game" a "life" is … meh. You even have a health bar.
- There are no stats given, so I did not know how much my warriors costs and what they do. I had to find out that the swordsman seem to be the strongest unit but the order suggests that it is the worst.
- There is no curve in the gameplay, it is not getting any harder over time or something is changing.
- You can only use the special one time? I did not know this and also it is not explained what it does before actually trying it.
- Audio was okay but could be better and could vary more.

I quit because I knew spawning the swordsman over and over lets me win.

Your game have potential, like Cbeed said, there are some points you could work on but its a good start. Congrats on your LD :)

Would've been nice to know how much each unit cost, and what their life was. Nice effort.

Very weak on theme. Fun game though.

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.


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.
