The Triblal Tree

by MajorLeagueBaker - Compo Entry

An almost tower defense game that focuses on saving a sacred tree from a buggy destruction.
(This is my first time trying to fully make a game, and I have to say it was fun)

I'm not sure what is causing this problem for some people but:
1. make sure the folder is extracted
2. make sure the .jar is next to the res folder
Other than that, please notify me of any other problems that you have experienced.

TO PLAY:
1) your little villagers will follow your cursor
2) huts(spawn villagers over time)
3) use your villagers to defend the tree from the bugs.

This is a neat little game. Resources seem to generate a bit too slow for how many bugs spawn. Cool idea none-the-less.

Interesting game, but the balancing is off, perhaps increase rate of earning money?

Interesting idea. I like the more unit control based tower defense idea you've implemented. Perhaps more unit/enemy types would have made it more interesting.

Also "open Pandora for audio." lol XD

Nice concept, although it seems a bit unbalanced. I tried several different tactics, but all basically were doomed :)
I like the interpretation of Tower Defense!

I like the idea of it, but it would be nice to be able to control units more individually. also, the window is way bigger than the actual game, and the art is bad. Use squares next time. Also music please.

Enjoyed it, good concept, was unbalanced. No way of getting very far. Consider making eating a bug give you money, or increase that rate, or increase spawn rate. Keep it up

Interesting idea. Very Hard. Spent too much on people i think and couldn't upgrade anything.

Dec 9, 2014 @ 4:12am

The idea is nice, but the game isn't very fun.

Complex idea and it had to involve some careful programming. Congrats on your submission.

Fun little game. I think you have a pretty cool idea. It wasn't clear what was killing my own units and how to gain resources. With some more work I think this could really turn into something, nice little prototype though, keep it up!

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.
