I HATE FLIES!

by lukepilgrim - Jam Entry

SMASH THE FLIES AND CLOSE YOUR EYES!
This game was made in about 14 hours - I couldn't manage to spend more time on the ludum dare jam this weekend. Therefore I'm very happy with the outcome of the game. Also I got a few friends to help me out with stuff.


~Description:

Do you hate flies? Soon you will!
This guy has a problem: Flies are terrorizing his appartment.
Luckily, he bought an flyswatter - now it's payback time!

~Info:
Move the flyswatter from left to right an try to kill all the flies! At the same time, you should make sure to close your eyes in the right moment, so that the flies won't get in your eyes!

-You will need a keyboard to play.

I made the most stuff by myself.
The following people helped me out and made this gamejam entry possible for me:
Raphael Klaas (Art)
Lars Engel (Help with Bugfixing (or Fly-fixing)
Alan Berger (Music)
All assets were made from scratch frot this game, except for the fly sound and the font.


-> I will rate EVERYONE back, who leaves me a comment! Thanks for the nice feedback so far!

Nice game, you made it very satisfying to squash flies with the screen shake.

This is most awesome. This has the best eye-closing feature I've ever witnessed in any game in the history of the mankind.

Well done.

I would have liked faster way to move hand, maybe even a mouse control.

Bahahaha love it! I *DO* hate flies now more than ever before! In fact I just saw one buzzing around my kitchen garbage and I'm going to take it out to the street as soon as I finish this comment!!

The art is awesome on this, and it's very funny. I played 4 times I think, and my best score was 27.

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 (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.
