Good Guys Always Win !

by ErelDev - Jam Entry

For my first Ludum Dare, I've made this game with Unity & gimp.

In this game you are a monster that have kidnapped a princess in this tower, but heroes from the entire kingdom want to save the lady and they are climbing your tower !
You have to protect yourself by throwing any object around you !
How many Heroes can you defeat before dying or falling ?

PS: A post-jam version for Android will be available soon !

As a fellow wilhelm scream user I can relate to how perfect this game is. Lost it when I saw the nokia. Well done.

Heh, the monster throwing furniture and gold bars to protect himself is pretty funny.

It felt like I wanted the items to drop from where the monster was holding them off to the side in his hand, instead of from his center. I missed a bunch of times at first because of that. Once I figured it out, I was ok, but it was hard to aim, especially for small things like the sword.

Simple but fun. Love the joke projectiles

Really like the music and the general idea, as others have said I think it would have been better if the drop had been from where the monster was holding the item as opposed to it being centered.

Gold bar, anvil, rock, cell phone? Love it!

Wilhelm scream is always equally jarring!
Would have been satisfying if items could drop "through" the targets so you could make combos (each with it's distinct excalating sound ofc)

Yeah great projectiles, I had no sound though.

Good choice of projectiles in this simple game! As others already said, a combo system and more intuitive aiming for the projectiles would be good improvements over the current gameplay.

Surprisingly fun, cooks and cellphones ftw. There could be an animation on being hit by an arrow, it was a little bit confusing at first. Well done!

Funny game. Got 125 points, it got quite intense after 100 points.

The game art is nice and the gameplay smooth and enjoyable!

Great sense of humour! The objects you can throw are a great random fun asset. I feel like the cooldowns should be shorter though, it is very hard to survive only on objects.

The idea that you are literally throwing anything you can find on the good guys is pretty funny. The special weapons are neat and it's really well made.

My only issue is the window size, as it was too high for my monitor.

Brilliant! Love the fact the monster throws all kinds of sillyness at the good guys. Simply brilliant. More please.

Quite plain game but the added humorous items really added to its charm.

I loved the items you can drop down :) I waited eagerly just to see what comes up next.

Hilarious with all the different objects that you could throw. It really lifted the overall experience and made me wanna play more just to see what would come next :)

Great game!
I enjoyed throwing random stuff on soldiers. The gameplay is simple but works great. Nice job adding several attacks with different pros and cons.
Graphics, music and sound effects are good as well.
Great job!

Good simple game. Bit confusing at first that the things I threw went straight down from the monster rather than from where I was holding them. Overall it's great fun and would play this on my phone forever I think.

Apparently the movement controls still respond to the WASD keys which is a bit awkward since D is also mapped to Flamethrower. But anyway, this was a pretty fun entry to play and I had a little laugh when one of the projectiles you could throw was a Nokia 3310 (because we all know how tough these things are ;D)

My favorite parts were the music, and the things you can throw were quite amusing.

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.
