Robo-Wars

by Aree Vanier - Jam Entry

Attempt to destroy the enemy robot. May be a bit glitchy. This is my first LD so I hope I did well!
The windows download should work, but I haven't tested it yet. It includes everything you need. **Read the README for how to run**
This game requires:
- Python 2.7
- Compatible version of PyGame
**DISCLAIMER** The music is NOT original!! Only the SFX are

The robots slowly approaching each other with the electro music is epic.

It seems like I just have to run to the power-up, use it and then I win. This might be more fun/strategic with more power-ups scattered and each player getting to experiment with combinations.

I like these turn-based game. It could benefit from an improved AI and more power up variety (I just kept shooting and healing with the hearts to win).

Please notice that pygame on Fedora does not come compiled with mp3 support (I had to convert the song.mp3 file to ogg and change the name in the source to run the game)

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.
