Veggie Wars

by nexyon - Compo Entry

This is a simple platformer multiplayer game with the focus set on player movement/controls!

The controls thus are:

Mouse/Keyboard:
Cursor keys for moving/jumping, mouse for using the hands (target/shoot)

Gamepad:
Left stick or dpad for moving/jumping, right stick for targetting and a button on the back for shooting. The actual controls depend a lot on the gamepad used.

Tested on: Firefox and Chrome (on Linux)

When playing alone you can at least get points by shooting bamboo, check out how much you can do with your hands! High screen resolution and fullscreen (F11) recommended!

Would love to hear any feedback you can give, cheers!

I don't know if it was just my internet connect but it seemed to lag a little but overall a lot of fun

This is interesting. I like how the score is on your body so that its always clear who is winning. Like that I can win without fighting. Nice graphics but I find the jumping/attacking sounds are very piercing.

I spent the first 10 minutes moving only with the mouse - honestly possibly a more interesting game that way. I'm not sure how the multiplayer works, which makes the rest of the game hard to judge.

I like how you can "swing" with your hands. I was playing when there was no one else online, so I didn't get to see any of the battle stuff.

Sound effects aren't the best.

When I first opened the tab I had to quickly take my headphones off because the audio was extremely loud and very dissonant. After muting chrome, I swung around a little using the gamepad controls and collected veggies. Swinging was cool, reminds me of teeworlds.

Mouse controls were fun! Background and sprite art styles were clashing. Unsure how multiplayer is supposed to work. Definitely a fun hand-throwing-armless-swinging thing though.

the joypad was hard to use, but it was fun with keyboard/mouse

Pretty cool! Swinging around spiderman-style can be quite fun, nice use of screen space and level design too. Kudos!

I'm not sure if there is a goal to the game, but it is definitely at least a bit fun.

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.
