Last Pig Standing

by HotByteDog - Jam Entry

Fortunately the little Piggy killed the big bad wolf and made it to his one room, stone hut.
Unfortunately his not so smart brothers left the windows open and the big bad wolf has a lot of children from multiple she-wolfs seeking for revenge...

Use A+S+D+W to move and the arrow keys to shoot.

Never thought I would manage to upload anything for my first Ludum Dare.
Unfortunately HTML5 did not work out.
My first finished Unity Game ever.
Assets made with Krita and sfxr.
I am happy about tons of feedback, ANY feedback!

update 12/14/16
I am so glad I finally got a working HTML5 version
The Port includes final bug fixes I was not able to fix by submission deadline

Change log:

-Character Controller does not feel like chewing gum any more
-Sound is not hurting the ear any longer
-Enemies do not start to attack right after spawning
-shots get an acceptable size

update 12/14/2016

Game still needed a final "No total waste of time for real gamers" Bugfix
- If no key is pressed shooting should be possible at once
- No crash before reaching Level 6 - I ,ehmm, swear

The main character is adorable and you gotta root for him! Fun game, though it seems like if you're running in one direction, you cannot shoot from the opposite direction. Great idea and fun sprites :)

)I'm not shure what's that green thing that is we shoot with, and sound are a bit painfull, But the piggy cuteness fills this gaps!

The story in the description made me giggle but I cant help but feel this had a bit more potential.

The controls are a bit floaty, the game doesn't convey much about the situation and the overall gameplay concept isn't overly original.

What it does, it does fairly well however I'd love to see more lively characters and varied gameplay ^-^

Thank you for you constructive critics so far.
You help me a lot to fill the gap between all the ambitions and ideas in my head and my current programming skills.
The green things should be something hard I hate to hit the monsters: Candy :-D

Lol, nice game, i would like to see how much i killed while im busy wrecking the infinite horde of wolves. And i wanted to shoot with my mouse as well :( and maybe some random background music would help as well. But overall it was fun, almost felt like a was surviving against the zombie apocalypse

Fun little game. Not sure if it's by design but I didn't seem to be able to run and shoot in any direction. Overall I thought it was pretty cool though!

Not an easy game, but a good bit of fun trying to mash your keys as quick as possible!

I like the action and the controls, feels pretty good. I don't understand though why the shooting stops when moving horizontally, it is kinda frustrating. My best score is level 4 with 53 skulls.

Thanks fullmontis for playing that hard.
Yes I did not integrate the backward shooting.
I thought it would look too strange with shots coming from the back. Thanks for pointing out the frustrating aspect.

54 skulls: WOW! I never thought someone would get this far. Now I have a serious problem, because I guess this game will crash after 6 Levels or so :-D

This made me realize I've never even seen a 3 little pigs defense game before. Seems to obvious now.

It was fun to play and the pig is lovely, however the speed of it is crazy :)

I loved the way everything moves fast! It was fun. Thanks for the game!

Dec 15, 2016 @ 7:20pm

The sound of the pig dying is really funny ! :D

Moves were a bit too fast for me, it was not really easy to controle the character.

I like the wolf design, reminds me of The Werewolves of Millers Hollow :)

It's a pig! Cute graphics. Congratulations on your first Ludum Dare. Well done.

Fun. Cute. Hard. All works fine and the IA is really amazing. I am a noob. I cannot fight wolfs during a long time. Well done ++

I really like the character. I also really like the idea. However I felt like the game played really quickly and didn't ramp up in difficulty too much.

When I shot sometimes the projectile wouldn't spawn. The graphics looked nice. Overall a good first unity game :)

Fun simple game, i like the sprites, especially the wolves :)

I think the game would be more fun with a life bar system than a one hit kill, but it also has its charm and is part of the challenge.

didn't noted the audio cause there wasn't any sound, don't know if the game has none or if it glitched out ? :/

But other than that solid entry, overall well done ^^

A cool premise and a nice take on the theme. Multiple she-wolves! This is the part of the story we rarely get to hear...

Gameplay was fun and frantic although, as others have said, I would really have appreciated the ability to shoot while moving. After a few attempts, I made it to Wave 3 (just).

Altogether a very nice little game!

pig/10 !

Dec 23, 2016 @ 9:00pm

Fun little game though quite difficult too! It seems like you can't shoot in the opposite direction you are walking... fixing that would sure make it easier.

Pretty basic concept, with a very cute protagonist. The character art, while simple, is fairly strong. But the environment is a little flat and its perspective is kinda weird.

I wish it wasn't get-hit-once-and-die. Some more hitpoints to keep me playing the game longer would've been nice. And there was a weird thing where I had to stand still to fire left and right, but I could fire up and down.

Like I said, graphics are decent for the characters. Some more contrast for the pig would've made him stand out a little better. Could've used some more sound effects for throwing the projectile, etc.

Nicely done, not too easy but not too hard either. I loved the art, well done!
