March of the robots

by Danvil - 48 Hour Compo Entry

>>> The post-combo version has several bugfixes and much better performance! <<<

~ ~~ ~~~ March of the robots : build, mine and conquer! ~~~ ~~ ~

First build a factory to get more robots. Once you feel that you have enough send them to conquer other worlds. Beam them up and down using the buttons near the portals (UP=beam up, DN=beam down). The left buttons are for haulers, the right buttons are for laser robots. Once robots are beamed up you can move them between worlds using the buttons near the connection lines.

~ ~~ ~~~ Remarks ~~~ ~~ ~

I ran out of time with the original 48h compo version, so it has some bugs and performance issues:

- low performance with too many robots (fixed in post-compo)
- small galaxy due to low performance (fixed in post-compo)
- driller do not produce ressources (fixed in post-compo)
- goo resource is useless (fixed in post-compo)
- factoy/driller are build instantly and do not cost ressources

Additionally the enemy AI is quite passive ...

Sorry, I could not figure it out how it works. I click all the buttons but it looked like I could just send something once. Greetings from Freising :)

It is really overwhelming without a tutorial. It took me a while to understand what to do. Not a bad game when you get the idea. :P

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.
