Fishes At War

by jorgemoag - 48 Hour Compo Entry

The game is to "build" sharks and throw them against the goal. You must build workers to harvest the food. More food means sharks bigger.

Funny and clever concept but It's really difficult to hit the button! Thanks for making it :)

Holy hell that was a lot of fun! Out of all 15 games ive played so far, this one is by far the best. :) Whats the point of gettin bigger sharks though? Is it supposed to be easier to hit? Im going to play a little bit more, thats for sure :)
p.s. theres alo i bug ive found out, sometimes your shark can appear right under your goal, and if you hit your own goal with it, then it scores 1 point to you.

Funny game :) I scored a goal by ricocheting off of enemy shark - that was pretty hilarious :)

Wonderful prototype, this could easily make for an awesome local or online multiplayer phone game, or web game. Well done! Good luck in the comp.

Pretty funny game made even more funny with the Hall of the Mt. King in the background. Very fun. Only downside is being able to hit your own button, which wouldn't be a problem if sometimes your own sharks did spawn inside/just underneath it. Overall, very fun.

Well this is marvellous. Nice work :)

This was super fun, and the computer presented enough of a challenge but wasn't impossible to beat. Great jam entry!

There is a small bug when it says "You Lose Press Space to Retry" the game does not stop counting button presses or stop you from making more sharks, so you can keep trying and get more then the computer and change Lose to Win.

haaha resource management for making sharks! Awesome!!!

Ha! That's fun! Great idea and solid execution. I didn't feel a need for larger sharks, I was fine with the smallest ones, so maybe there should be some bonus other than just plain size for buying more expensive sharks. But it's fun and incredibly funny as it is now! Feel yourself the Shark King! I'm not sure though, how should I rate audio considering it's a compo entry...

Really cool game, one of my favourites so far! I love that you can use the sharks to defend yourself against the other sharks, and the GOOOOOAAAAALLLL when you hit the button.

Once you realize how to play and what you actually have to hit (the red button) this is super fun.
Would make a great Couch-Multiplayer game. I love that you can hit other sharks in midair and that bigger sharks actually make it easier to hit, giving it a tactical element as well.

Really good and original entry.

Nice! Way too much fun building sharks and launching them! Great work. Loved the graphics and colors.

Took me a long while to understand what I was supposed to hit. Very funny game though. Had me laughing a good bit. I beat 3 or 4 of my opponents before getting a bit bored. A few gripes: Sharks can sometimes spawn in a place that launches them into your own goal. Sometimes the shark is too low in the tank and you can't tell how far you've pulled the velocity down because it is hidden in the tank dirt. Funny concept though!

That was so dumb and hilarious in the best way. Love the combination of a trajectory-shooter game + RTS resource mechanics. Only thing is that it was hard to gauge the strength of your throw.

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.
