2 Towers

by peterentwistle - Compo Entry

This is my second submission to Ludum Dare, not 100% how I would have liked it to turn out, I had loads of other features planned, but I am much happier with this entry over my previous. Overall I feel that I’ve learnt a lot this weekend and I had so much fun doing it!

Fun game, I've never wanted to kill a little red man so badly...lol.

Nice concept, although it lacks in using skill, simply starting to shoot first wins the game after all. Maybe if you added randomly spawned objective items, hp, points between the towers you would encourage the movement of you and the AI even more.
Also the animation of the stickmen is funny because it looks like they are doing something else :)

Pretty fun, but no real sense of strategy. You just fire on the wall until you win, because why would you ever leave the safety of the wall? I thought maybe I could chase the red guy down but I couldn't pass through his walls so it mostly became a wall shooting contest.

Vaguely fun, it's pretty satisfying when you knock down a tower. I agree that the game seems pretty unbalanced because basically whoever shoots first wins. It's great that you learned and had fun with the challenge though! And the music is really nice-- kind of intense but also very simple and catchy.

I agree with the others, it's a bit too easy to win but I enjoy that you made the music (I appreciate good made music...hence my game)

On the bright side, your game is bug-free!

quick little game, the gameplay is simplistic and the art style is a bit nostalgic for me of countless old flash games. I feel the strong point of this entry is the music. Good job :)

Theme is nailed. I like that the game has an end-game function, so it makes it whole. Good AI for such a small game. Nice entry!

Holly cow, that was hard. I feel like the game is missing something, feels a little bit too simple for me. I also think the music doesn't fit too much with the gameplay, even though it's good. All in all, a good effort. Keep up the good work.

This game is 5 minutes of mouse destroying clicks. Also I feel like it was originally snowballs.

Nice concept but the outcome tends to be whoever starts shooting first wins.

Nice music. I can't kill that red guy grrrrr

Cool concept, but I won just by holding down LMB and nothing else, so no challenge at all. Nice music! :)

Pretty cool to play once! But for people to return it would need some more challenges. Fun though :)

--------That's exactly what I want to say! I have committed my second LD game. And I was really happy that I can finished though mine is still a simple game.

It's funny~~ Feel like the one who can destroy all the blocks faster will win the game..hahaha I almost hurt my finger cause I'm using the touch pad :)

I really dig that song. The win condition is cool, although I agree with some people -- I wish there was a bit more complex strategy to it (maybe some risk/reward thing for moving up close? Like stronger bullets but you have to risk getting shot to get them?) Anyway I really liked it, nice work

Pretty fun and cute. I plated without the "cheat" and its more tense :)

Dec 9, 2014 @ 11:13pm

Thanks for the feedback guys :) I had so much fun with this entry. I might make an improved post-compo version.

My strategy was to tank as much damage as I could to save my tower's health. That way I would always destroy the enemy towers before they could destroy mine. Cool game, but could use a bit more depth.

Hi there. Nothing seemed to get through, easy to die, doesn't seem to be a point which is achievable. Liked the music.

I won by holding down left mouse. Needs some more skillful gameplay. I wanna work for the win.

Liked the idea, but I felt like it was just the one who spammed the most who won. Would be good if you added some way of actually make it worthwhile to move around and try to outsmart the opponent!

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 (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.
