Super Fungus Attack

by mcc - Compo Entry

This is a two player VS game. You are a spreading fungus and your goal is to overwhelm the other fungus. The game board is continually growing to the right, and if your fungus gets pushed off the left side of the screen you lose.

I hope you enjoy it.

Some small notes:
1. I have not had the opportunity to test, but the sound may not be correct on some newer versions of OS X.
2. I did not attempt to follow the theme.
3. Because of things happening in my life, it is unlikely I will be rating games this LD. Because of this, my submission will not get a numeric score. If you would like to convey your feedback on the game, please leave a comment. Thanks.

Yeah like the comments above me I didn't seem to be able to take any control over either fungus, their growth seemed automatic. But if you post saying there are controls and what they are, I'll happily rate again after playing again. (I'll check this in a few days).
What I could see was still strangely fun, even without any control and just using Y/N to restart it was interesting watching the fungi grow.

It looks cool, I'm just not sure what to do except watch it grow. I guess that's how fungus is, though?

Maybe you can place bets on the fungus, play with money ! I like the art style.

I like the style and how the fungus grow, but there's no much gameplay to it. Maybe you could add some kind of genetics options for the players to choose.

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.
