NOTE: Game does not appear to work on Win10/some systems, investigating now...

PLEASE READ:
Anyone not able to run the game, can you please run the game from the terminal to get the error? It'll help with fixing the issues, thanks!

Instructions: Shift+rightclick to open cmd prompt in the main game directory, then type OneCockatTheTop.exe. This should keep the window open after crashing to get the error.

A cock fighting game where you must guide your fighting cock to the the position of 'top chicken' by winning 10 battles. The fights themselves is a fighting game, where you lose when your cock loses all of its health (cock's long healthbar shortens to nothing) or when your cock falls off the side of the stage.

The end game and shop screen are incomplete because of time constraints. (The empty slots in the shop is for more weapons that were meant to be added)

Thank you to anyone who plays my game and/or gives feedback, I really appreciate it! This is my first Ludum Dare, and first properly packaged game :).

Made with Kivy and Python 3.4
All art assets made by me
Music credits to Kevin MacLeod (incompetech.com)

Controls:
WASD - movement
JKL - abilities (Sword, Trebuchet, Boosters(No graphics))
Enter - navigation

Hint: Baiting the AI off off the stage is a more feasible tactic for the later fights.

1.0 - Initial release
1.01 - Fixed bug that crashes game after restarting game from defeat.
14/12/16
Added source code.
15/12/16

Anyone running Windows 10 with the game dl'd, can you run the game from the terminal to get the error thrown? Instructions: Shift+rightclick to open cmd prompt in the main game directory, then type OneCockatTheTop.exe. This should keep the window open after crashing.

Works on my machine (Win10).

Really fun, the graphics are really charming and it's quite lengthy, great!. A VS gamemode would be a great addition if you plan on improving the game.

Also, so far, this submission has the highest ratio of the word "cock" in it's description so far!

Congratulations!

It can be polished further, but it's fun. Its physics are sloppy, but it has a strong core loop and you did a good job giving the player an objective in the main menu. I was frustrated when I lost in the ninth match... and that's a good thing. It's great.

I didn't feel the theme at all, but that's okay. You made a fun game. Also, nice title. I'm sure it'll get a lot of clicks for you. Good job!

Works on my machine (Win 10). Absolutely loved the art. Nice entry. Wish there was more gameplay.

Concept and title are good for a giggle :] While I found the game a bit clunky in the controls, I did have a pretty good time with the first few rounds. The upgrades between rounds really help in keeping the player motivated. Also kudos on finishing a LD project without using Unity, Game Maker, or Construct. Really shows a passion for the process.

Always wanted to learn python. Didnt know nothing about kivy. Will do a game with this. Thanks!!!

@eruiz00 Kivy feels half way between an engine like Unity and SDL, since you have to code in all the physics, camera, and the like. But as my first interaction with coding a game,

@eruiz00 It's helped me learn a lot about how a game works. So don't be let down if it has a slow start :).

Really fun game, but camera moves and zooms in too much. Also, controls don't feel very responsive. Fix that and it'll be a 5/5!

Cock fighting super smash brother style. Increased my fighter's HP a lot but I got kicked off from the stage by enemy's stack of soda bottles! That surprises me! I was confused by the shop/stats screen because if I only focus on adding HP there's another attribute that go down and if I start with that my fighter will start with less HP.

I never thought I would say this sentence, but this is the best kind of cock fight I have ever been in! It feels very much like a SSBB gameplay and it does feel tight for something done with such a time restriction. The deign was really interesting. Also I got to run it just fine with Windows 10, with no difficulty whatsoever.

Rather difficult, but not unfun. I could never get past the second round.

Graphics and music are good. This has probably the best vector graphics I've seen so far this Ludum Dare.
