Bio Defence

by fued - Jam Entry

Spin the walls, block the viruses and catch the nutrients!

Make sure you catch those purple nutrients on the green receptors!

6 levels! 3 different virus types! antibodies/super nutrients, and shiny lights everywhere!

originally chosen because we wanted to explore 'beneath the surface' of a cell, and the things that go within, we dropped realism quite a bit to improve gameplay a lot... definitely worth it i think!

Designed mainly as an ipad/tablet game, it still is perfectly playable on PC

Unity2D game, made by a team of 5

Nice game. I love the character the face in the middle brings to the game. I played on pc and think it would benefit from keyboard controls.
Anyways, good job you all :)

I liked it very much and I found it innovative! I agree that keyboard controls would be cool.

Finished!!!! :) Enjoyed that! Nice use of the theme :) Sweet music, suits the game nicely!! Controls are a bit hard with mouse, but I see how it would work really well on an Ipad!!

That was difficult. Regardless, it was amusing till the various pathogens overwhelmed me.

Very fun. I was gonna say touch would be cool, but looks like you mentioned this was designed with iPad in mind. Maybe, making it clearer which were the good nutrients.

Beautyful. The graphics and the colors are really great and the gameplay is really cool.

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.
