Terrorist Simulator 2015

by xX12Twisty12Xx - Compo Entry

Usually we try to avoid Terrorists.
But what if you ARE the Terrorist?
Your mission is to blow up as many people as possible, by any means necessary, and the Terrorist with the most amount of kills wins.

But... what does this have to do with Monsters?
Terrorists are monsters. Metaphorically.
Just deal with it.

You may need these controls!
Move = W
Space = Detonate
Drop Pesos = P
Escape = Esc
1+1 = 2

Developer note: The source may be a bit damaged as Dropbox is crap and won't allow multiple files at once, literally meaning I will have to click every resource individually. It's late, I'm tired, it's been a long weekend, I'm going to bed.

See you all at LD34! ^.^

Good graphic. But the gameplay is too simple. :(
BTW, it's funny to see that they're going into the smoke I made and die. Those guys are idiots. :p

I think that you should put controls somewhere in the game,
but anyway i enjoyed playing it, good work.

I hate to be "that guy" and all, but since you used outside assets, like the title screen background and children cheering and such, this should be in the Jam, not the compo. Hopefully you don't have to resubmit to move it over.
That said, I think you did the theme very well. The aforementioned cheers were wonderfully jarring, and tying a scoring system into it made it appropriately inappropriate.
Like Piotrek said, the movement was a bit weird, but the game didn't require super precise actions, so that was fine. I wish the money dropping was a bit more effective as well, I couldn't really get anything to happen with it.

The game is absolutely hilarious, and the title too. But it seems a little lacking and you can go off the map at certain places.

Fits the theme well. Dark humour, but high points for humour nonetheless. Perhaps the money dropping could have been used as a mechanic to lure more civilians to the intended blast radius?

Pretty fun! Could be really good if you're going to keep working on it.

Cool game and nice adoption of the theme. Controlls could use some love, but good job overall.

Mini Submission FAQ

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.

CAN I ENTER BOTH EVENTS?: You should pick 1 event, whichever you think it’ll do better in. If the idea is strong, and everything plays well enough, you can go Compo. If you’re a perfectionist, and would prefer people to play a more polished game, do the Jam. Historically, more games are entered in the Compo, but with more people and more time, Jam games have the potential to be better (that doesn’t mean they are). Many solo participants do enter the Jam.

If you made 2 games, unfortunately, the website doesn’t support multiple submissions per user. To submit your 2nd game, you will have to make a 2nd account. Only do this if you made 2 games. Alternatively, if one game is better than the other, then consider just entering the better game.

CAN I KEEP WORKING UNTIL THE DEADLINE?: Yes! Immediately after the 48 or 72 hours, we do something called Submission Hour. As the name suggests, it’s an extra hour for you to package, upload, and submit your games. If there were catastrophic issues trying submitting your game, or you misunderstood how submissions work, that’s okay. It happens. We’re flexible. If you need advice, check with the folks on IRC. If you need an admin, get in touch.

CAN I KEEP WORKING ON MY GAME?: Oh definitely! You should! But for the sake of judging, keep the Compo or Jam version around. You can include a link to the Post-Compo/Post-Jam version of your game on your games page, but sure your main links are the original version.

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 at least 20 games to improve your visibility (Coolness).

MY GAME CRASHES, IS UNBEATABLE, OR I MADE A TYPO: We allow you to fix crashes, win condition, or tiny bugs after the deadline. In a sense, this is like “porting” to support more players. We leave this open to interpretation, but generally speaking your game should be identical to the game you submitted. No new features, just fixing mistakes you should have caught had you been better rested.

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.

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.
