Protect The Fire

by Laks8 - Compo Entry

Protect The Fire is a tower defence game where your have to defend the fire in the middle from the EVIL snowmen.
You do this by spending you points to place turrets around the fire to shoot the snowmen.
You get points by picking up the snow the snowmen drop.

This is the first time I have finished a game so I'm pretty happy with it. :)

Even though I did not like the graphics much, steel a good game.

Wow I never knew that snowmans could be so cruel. Overall nice, but the mechanics could be improved(each turrent it's own closest target, no snowman insta-kill). Some polishing and it would be much better.
That said, it is a fun game! Awesome job!

It's really annoying that the turrets all forcus the same target, makes it really hard to get far in the game. /:

I managed to get to wave 13 before being wiped out. I enjoyed the gameplay and the fluidity, but I thought some graphics improvements would make it even better.

Cool idea with moving car or something like that, idea is quite good. Only needs more explanation and flexibility.

A tower defense game in raw prototype stage. While it is solid so far, there are two things bugging me:

- All towers have a shared target instead of shooting their nearest target
- Towers should have a little bit of health

This two things combined make it quite difficult to get into the game.

Hi there. Interesting take on turret defence with the snow picking up... like that. Nice sounds and graphics. Good job!

Turrets need to fire at the nearest enemy to them, not all at the same enemy together.

Great tower defence concept with deep resource management. But overall fun setting

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. 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.
