I liked the game mechanic; at first, it seemed like a simple game, but it rapidly turned towards a more complex strategy. The audio could have used some improvements imo! Overall, nice job :)

Nice RTS where you don't need to concentrate so much on building anything, good for me in that sense. Simple but enjoyable. I think the camera movement could be a bit better, sometimes ordering troops somewhere also moves the camera if you're not very precise.

I love RTS games and this was a good one. Very impressive mechanics in such a short time.

The firing rate and/or range of the humans is too high and makes it very hard to get any kind of momentum going with your zombies. There's a nice basis for a simple C&C game here tho. Cute zombies too

Haha cool. They can't do anything against you. Well done. Also graphics and sound

Very fun RTS - was able to flank the soldiers with the zombie hordes to pull off a win. RTS controls were pretty good - would be nice to have more of an indicator of what is selected, maybe panning the mouse on screen edge, rather than right click drag. But overall, great game - very fun. Nice work!

Fun little game, if abit unfair towards the zombies! I love the simplistic strategy mechanics! Overall its a pretty neat game, needs abit of tweaking to not allow the human to overpower the zombies so fast!

Cool game, a bit hard to control tho, the selecting and drag-scrolling clashes a bit. Fun simple mechanics though. :)

Really nice game and I mostly like the AI of the enemies and also of the zombies, I would thought they would be only standing on one place and waiting for enemies to come to them, but them chasing the nearby enemies and then coming back is really nice feature.

Thx guys! Some spoilers that might interest some of you:
1. If you kill all enemies from some spot (like base camp), and wait few seconds, the base is changing to red color, and all the graves that are near the base start to spawn zombies.
2. Snipers are attacking you main cemetery, and they are too many.. maybe we should find another spawn point that would let us collect big zombie horde..
3. Winning is possible, you have to take control over all the sniper bases.

Fun game. Camera move control could use some love. but overall nice entry.

felt a little basic, but there was nothing inherently wrong with it. The art and sound effects did their job, the controls were responsive, the goal was clear, and the dedicated button for snapping the camera back to your base was handy.
Ultimately, though, I really don't feel like there's much to this game. It doesn't feel all that thought intensive or satisfying to progress, and the gameplay doesn't really ramp up in any particularly meaningful way over time.

I think it's a pretty solid concept. I couldn't grasp exactly what was the intended strategy or the involved skill, so I'd be interested in a more advanced version of the game, I think you should keep on working on it

Not sure if you can qualify for "Audio" if you didn't make it...

@BtheDestroyer
I just checked rules and you are right. Fixed.

Pretty good. Was hard to determine where shots came from, but otherwise nice.

Always nice with more RTS in Ludum Dare! Loved the idea, the gameplay and the music! Generally an awesome game!

Beat it on my third play. I was constantly clicking with the wrong mouse button, but that's pretty much my fault! Would have been nice if it was clearer when you had taken over a spawn point so it was making zombies instead of troops, but otherwise excellent.

I didn't notice the horde of soldiers until it was too late, pretty decent entry though.

Great game! though I wish the screen could be moved with arrow keys :) I included it in part 31 of my Ludum Dare 33 Compilation video series, if you would like to take a look :) https://youtu.be/ZV7CU8j_StI

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.
