I'm going to assume the fact that I can't get past the instructions screen is deliberate somehow :P

Classic game of territorial conquest. You should tweak storage and production cost, and the end, I finished up spamming tanks and filled the map with them :).

We also don't know the purpose of the hospital, and school upgrades.

Nice game, a bit easy but nice nevertheless. You're aware that you only compete in humor and mood right?

Agh, right, I got the play button this time. That was fun, enjoyed a lot :)

I like this, seems like could be the start of something really good if developed and tweaked...I like the small board and it all being contained right in front of you.

A sim game in time attack mode! Short and sweet. Build stuff and increase your stats, then swamp your enemy with tanks. I enjoyed it!

Cool game! Almost like an rts/tower defense hybrid. Excellent work!

A good game, not so very strategic (keep paying production improvement and you'll be rich), but fluid gameplay; simple graphics; Lacks of music and sound makes it a little boring!

Very cool! I really liked the implementation of that, it was a lot of fun :)

Though the balancing does feel a little off. Most of the upgrades aren't necessary, as you reach a point where you can just spam enough tanks that the rest is irrelevant :P

Oooo! An RTS! I can appreciate the fact that the cost of things is at least within the same ballpark as the resources you collect. Tweaking it will obviously require play-testing - which requires time we don't have in Ludum Dare. Usually people shy away from games like this, so I can appreciate it when devs actually attempt it, and come out ahead.

Good Game, but the cost of the cities shouldn't be increasing with the other upgrades.

Hi there. I admire your use of the UI, nice design and operation. Would be nice to have something flashing on the build city button at the start - spent a couple of mins clicking around and reloading... Nice mechanics. Did not play a full game, will revisit.

It plays like one of those clickers, like Candyland or something, but I can see the depth in it... A bit more options would be better, strategic options, tactical options.

I really want to like it but it feels like accounting :/

Oh and the interface - it needs just a bit of tweaking to be intuitive, it's already pretty good, but the intuitiveness is *just* short of good.

Nice job! If only the red city would attack back, but otherwise well done!

Really liked the game. Spamming tanks is a really good way to win :)

Very cool little strategy game. I placed my city in the red zone the first game and learned not to do that =p

Quite clever! After finishing the easy condition, I tried the hard one, then thought "ugh, this is too tedius" - then I realised I was playing it all wrong and had upgraded my productivity too much. Tried again and enjoyed it.

Simple but fun! A few explanations on what school and hospital do exactly would've been nice (since I avoided the spoiler thingy before playing, so I just built and upgraded both of them without really knowing why), and the slow steps of increasing the storage were a little irritating - I "accidentally" won the game before even unlocking most of the tech stuff. But other than that it was cool. Funny how those little tanks pushed each other off the map. :)

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. Alternatively, if you just posted it, wait a minute. The cache may not have refreshed yet.

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.
