Broken Turrets

by Biliogadafr - Compo Entry

Fight with zombies! You have 3 turrets with heat detection. But the problem is that zombies are cold...

W S A D - forward/backward/left/right
ESC - exit

Made with Unreal Engine 4.5.1 (my first game with unreal).
Tools: Blender 2.72b, gimp 2.8.10, audacity 2.0.5.

Visual C++ Redistributable Packages (this may be already installed because many games from steam need that thing):
Please select version(x64/x86) according to build of the game.

-add win32 version
-add OS/X version (better late than never)

Really, really cool! Mobile phones could be a great platform to aim at with this kind of games!

It's simple and would deserve more content, but as of LD31, it's beautiful yet simple and cartoonish, the mechanic is really simple: use zombies as shields without getting eaten.

Love it!

Downloaded Win_64 version, and got an error message on launch:

The program can't start because MSVCR120.dll is missing from your computer. Try reinstalling the program to fix this problem.

I played it, and I really enjoyed it. It seemed quite clunky to me though. I would also like arrow key support, because I'm left handed, and wasd sucks for me. The style was great, and the concept is amazing, and pampattitude's idea of mobile is an awesome idea!

It was very good idea, but it's hard to lure zombies to turrets while turret fire can kill you. Good game overall, liked the graphics and animation.

The graphics are excellent. Plays smooth and simple but not easy.
Solid. Wish it had more to it but that's good. Could be expanded on

Either I'm bad, either it's very hard to play :D. However, I think this kind of gameplay would be improved by a 2D top down view instead of a 3D view.

The lighting in this game is beautiful! Nice work on the game.

Looks interesting, too bad it doesn't have OSX/Web build :(

This looks really nice and the running animation is hilarious :D It's really hard though

Nice aesthetics of the game :)

Love the aesthetic and the run animation of the player character. Difficulty could be a little more forgiving. Feels like you can't run through the cannon fire at all without losing at least some of your hp. Fire rate could be turned down or the turrets could turn a bit slower. Nice concept though and with some tweaking could be a very fun game.

Aww... my computer can't run it. It looks really cool though... : (

Ah. Probably this is because Unreal Engine is quite demanding to modern hardware.

brutally hard unless I am missing something. never managed so stay alive for more than 15 seconds!

Charming concept made funnier by the great animation and artwork. Very tough, though. I wanted to try and figure out some sort of strategy to last more than 15 seconds, but never quite managed to. Well done!

hm... I managed to survive for 26 second. And I saw that peaple can stay alive for 30 seconds.

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. 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.
