Hello everyone, it's our first Ludum Dare, and we're excited to present you our game "Bob&Bernard Against the Nazis"!

This is a game about kid Bob, who bought a whale on Ebay. And then Bob and his whale become the best friends ever. Somehow the Nazis managed to find out about this and decided to kill the whale at all costs...
And so the story begins. One whale, one room, many nazis, and a friendship that lasts forever!

Arrows - Movement,Jump
Z - Shoot/interact
Shop - mouse

Press Z when near the sink to get water, then press and hold Z while standing on the whale to pour water on him. Repeat to heal your buddy!
Press Z near PC to buy weapons.

*If you die, please refresh your page to restart.(sorry :c)

P.S. Unfortunately, our game isn't finished (yet). A lot of content is out of this build :c But we want to finish this game! So, you will be able to check an extended version very soon. Stay tuned!

Really great art and music! Overall great game.

Wow! this game was a lot of fun and I hope you keep working on it. The pixel art was great, the music was fitting and the mechanics were spot on. The controls were a little hard to stretch from z to 1-4 in the heat of the action. The story/theme seemed a little weird. I like the kid and the whale, the nazis just seemed out of place. I played this until round 9, and if I could have paused I would have been playing longer!

That was fun! Good job coming up with such a great story to bring humor into the game. Loved the whale's hat!

Beautiful graphics, and great music too. Solid game, well done! :D

Brilliant graphics. Gameplay is good and fun. Hard to find out what is happening.

Great art and music! I really like the coin animations as well. If you made the game play/progression faster I would have played for much longer.

Great work :)

First game made in flash that i see not running at <30 fps really impresive, lot of care put onto the pixelart, quite fun to play

Holy! Progress is a little bit slow, but otherwise AWESOME!

Awesome graphics and design! It had really nice feel to it. I love the idea of watering the whale.

The game could benefit from faster ramp up and to me the dubstep was a little out of place for the visuals.

Overall it's a really tight game.

Nice one. Reminds me of flash game Dude and Zombies which is a good thing.
With more levels could be a thing.

That was a ton of fun! :)

It's really cool that you're invincible and have to protect something. I'd love to make it a bit more fast-paced regarding text, running speed and time given to buy stuff.

Artworks and sound design are awesome. Action is a bit repetitive but I definitely like phases interrupting gameplay (speeches / connecting to internet...). Music choice is aligned with the game spirit, offbeat. That's good !

Looks pretty but gameplay is too simple. Try to add abilities.

Awesome graphics, great concept and humor. If finished this would be a nice little polished game.

It's nice that different weapons are better against different enemies, but the keys for switching weapons are inconvenient. I got a sudden "The end" at one point.

I enjoyed it! Quite a unique concept, defending a whale from killer nazis.

Dec 13, 2016 @ 3:35pm

Good job! Sound and camera effects feel really satisfying, nice art too ^^

Don't get the thing about the nazis though (?)

Main character remins a lot of the CaveStory's, but it fits quite well into the environment. Loved the art very much. Music would be a bit better without mandatory brostep, however it was very well done. Enjoyed this one a great deal! Keep it up!

the gameplay feels so smooth and fun, also those dialogs are amazing, really good game, congrats!

Awesome audio and graphics. In my opinion, the game is too repetitive (I only played the first three waves). You could have added another mechanic to boost the dynamic of the game (like shielded enemies, or two different starting weapons with different abilities and you have to switch between them etc.). Really nice game!

Brilliant art and sound/music. I really cared for the whale, so I was frustrated that I couldn't heal her back during the 5th to 6th break. I don't know if there was a bug or something, but I couldn't get to fill the watering can, and by the sixth enemy wave we couldn't hold on any longer :_(

As for gameplay, it was also very solid, but the waves lasted for quite a bit, which felt a bit slow and repetitive (specially as you had to keep walking back and forth). Perhaps you could improve the pacing by making more frequent, shorter waves and touching a bit the movement speed.

Apart from this, I've really enjoyed this entry, congrats!

Dec 13, 2016 @ 7:34pm

Very fun, good looking and tight controls. Simple, but simple and good beats complicated and sloppy :) I would have liked longer breaks to heal up and buy guns, but that's my subjective taste, I suppose. Other than that, solid product

Donar says ...
Dec 13, 2016 @ 8:18pm

OK, I'm really pissed about one thing: Just when I hit 250 coins for the Bazooka, the game yelled "The End" at me, so I would need to replay to test that weapon.

Graphics and Audio are great, but the Gameplay could be a bit more challenging for me.

Also, as a German, I am really offended. Not because the Nazi killing, that's fun, but because on our Keyboard the Z and Y keys are swapped ...

really nice graphics,but I must to reload the webpage for playing again ?

Very good art and story but it's very repetitive. It felt to me like one of those mobile games where upgrades are infinite and you grind to get to the next weapon. I personally don't like that kind of games but if you do this for mobile I'm sure you'll have an audience.

Love the art and how the game is first introduced to the player.
The whale is genius

Dec 13, 2016 @ 9:08pm

this was hilarious. Had lots of fun. Great art and very enjoyable gameplay - even though it's a bit on the grindy side for me - I wished I could have been able to buy a gun earlier.
Great game, keep it up!

Very nice pixel art, sounds were a bit annoying overtime. After wave 3 it suddenly got very hard with the snipers and I never got to buy the new weapon :( Overall a lot of fun. I dont really understand why you named your game that way? It didnt look like nazis.

I killed my whale. 10/10

Dec 13, 2016 @ 9:51pm

Amazing art and humor! Your art team is incredibly talented! Unfortunately the game itself felt too repetitive, and i could not afford to buy anything after multiple rounds, and i couldn't heal the whale no matter what(bug maybe?), so i ended up repeatedly dying before trying out any of the other weapons; But i will definitely try out your art team's project, Undergrave!

poor Bernard! Why, Nazis, why?! :( :(
Very addictive game, good humor, nice graphics, hilarious sound effects during the dialogs - I can't appreciate it enough - thank you for the game ! :)

This was a great example of good clean basic gaming. I really enjoyed it. The humor is a nice touch to an already established set of assets.

Amazing art, fun mechanics, a good upgrade system. You've made a great game which definitely can be expanded into a full-fledged and i would play it for sure!

Dec 14, 2016 @ 8:50pm

Great looking game, classic Newgrounds style going on here. The action was snappy and the audio was really good. Liked the humor too. I would have played beyond Wave 6 but the progression was soooooooo slow, the pistol was really hard to endure for 3 waves until I could afford the AK. Triple the gold drop and it could have stayed fun for much longer. Badass though.

Very nice pixel art and I really like the idea!
It surprised me :D Music fit perfectly too. I had little hard times with controls, but all in all it was fun :)

dv49 says ...
Dec 15, 2016 @ 8:47pm

Like the pixel and the main characters!
Difficulty progression and gameplay was toooo slow for me. Also, swapping inputs (keyboard/mouse) in arcade like this is a bad practice.

Dec 15, 2016 @ 9:15pm

I played for so long and had 234 coins of something. And then the game just ended :(

Dec 16, 2016 @ 10:58am

oh! Nice! And it's also online! Amazingn pixel art! Can I find it on indiexpo? I'm making videos about the games of this Jam, but only about the games hosted also on indiexpo! Tell me if you will add it, so I can include it in my next video ;)

Dec 18, 2016 @ 9:44am

Loved the game, the ending was a bit sudden and I found the difficulty to be a little too easy. Maybe having a bit stronger ramping in the difficulty will make the game more engaging? Graphics were superb and the story was funny.
