Needs polish, even though I did not know what I was clicking and how it relates to the items I can purchase, I was just clicking everything, and going around. Very nice, just needs to clean it up to make things clear what is getting affected when you click and what you can upgrade. Overall still enjoyed it.

Nice cookie clicker. Art style is very pretty and awesome music too! I don't know why u removed those 2 categories for your entry. With some more polishing in the game balance I could spend some time clickin!

Good solid mechanics and gameplay. Seems like a very successful proof of concept to me. If you would decide to spend more time with it you could find a very deep game. Has a simple concept, that is easy to understand and play. Is kind of a twist on all the games where you send out waves of dudes to destroy your opponents fort, but it has a nice system built in for how your get your resources. I would love to see how you build on it story wise. Why and who is attacking you?

I made it to wave 17! This is very fun, and the graphics are great! I wasn't quite sure what was going on with the soldiers, though.

I love games like these, very complete, overall coherent presentation. I would recommend you tweak the balance a little bit, since it was very ease for me to earn enough resources to have a sizeable army from the first few seconds.

Is fun to play. I like the brightness of the graphics. Also, the music is very nice.

Thanks everyone!

@digibody For sure! Feedback will improve. Thanks for your comments!

@Caspila Unfortunately I didn't make the audio or graphics so that's why those categories were removed :(

@Muush Definitely agree! Balancing will probably go on for awhile with this one!

@cdwaddell I could definitely see this going a little further with a possible stage by stage mechanic where I could put a little story in. Thanks for the thoughts!

Good game, in the mood of the click games you can find recently (which I'm not a fan).

Not a fan of those cookie clicker type games. Interesting combination with tower defense though.

was a lot of fun. Want to see some pvp !!

Very well done game. Only issue I had was that it was too easy. I had over 60 of all the resource producers and the soldiers which made it trivial and the game was able to beat every wave on its own. Maybe if the difficulty could scale up a bit.

I liked it! But I would change the layout a little bit. Maybe keep the resources on the top of the screen and those buttons to right.

Great game loved it in every way. Only criticism is that it got to easy later on

I think I broke my mouse buttons :)
Nice idea, lacks a bit of balance after a few minutes into the game where it becomes really easy to overpower the AI. Fun game!

I really like this idea, definitely caused some finger cramping :) I feel this could be an interesting mobile experience since tapping (clicking) is a primary method of interaction. Well done!

Dec 11, 2014 @ 5:42am

addicting but easy. i like the art style

Liked the ambient music a lot! My fingers hurt.

broknecho says ...
Dec 11, 2014 @ 8:29am

The balance definitely needs some tweaking. I put up a new HARD mode for anyone in the "Web (post-compo - hard mode)" link. :)

Really fun game ! Love it ! =) Quite addictive and nice way to manage and gain resources.

Dec 11, 2014 @ 5:54pm

I love strategy, I love tower defense and I love Clickity click. Kudos for using (and mentioning) Kenney! A bug seems to be that the game lags out if you get more than 1600 units. Merry Christmas!

Pretty little game. I wish I could judge graphics they were good.

I like game, but it was too easy to play it, so it was really interesting only at first time. But idea is good - clicking + tower defence! I played in Chrome browser, and sometimes music disappeared.

Dec 11, 2014 @ 10:51pm

Nice and simple graphics, good strategic game, barely could stop playing it :D
Congratulations!

Hah, I had quite some fun getting the hang of this! Well done.

So much clicking! Still a pretty good timewaster though.

Dec 22, 2014 @ 1:34pm

I got my army size to 1200, I was an unstoppable killing machine! I'm not usually a fan of clicker games, but adding the tower defence and units along with the resource balancing worked well and I enjoyed playing

This was simple and fun, but too easy. I haven't tried the post-jam version yet.

Kabukky says ...
Dec 25, 2014 @ 6:07am

Hah, this is fun :) Good job on making it so addictive. You should port a polished version to mobile - it would fit well.

Click, click, click, click, click, click, click, click,... What happpened to the soldiers? Good music.

Dec 28, 2014 @ 11:02pm

Oddly compelling stuff. I like the tower defense element to it, so that there's a point to it other than a number going up. Cool game.

Fun at first, but the learning curve is just too shallow. Ended up having the game crash at wave 52, 747 soldiers.

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.
