Beware Of The Spiders

by psychomonster - Compo Entry

Well I did it within time :)

What a great weekend. Hope you enjoyed yours creating games with friends or solo. Here is mine:

Beware Of The Spiders:

Its a Game about a spider invasion. You are the cat and you are the only one in your family without arachnophobia. You have to protect the kid to not freakoutbecause all the spiders.

W,a,s,d or arrows to controle cats movement
space to make a melee attack with your paws
if you kill a spider the score multiplier will rise
if a spider reaches the kid, the multiplier will be resetted
if you hit the kid with your paws the multiplier will reset too
if 10 spiders hit the kid... the kid will run away and the game ends

there is no win condition... make some good scores :)

Thanks for playing and rating. Have a nice time... till we dare again :D

Nice game. I liked the bright graphics and idea of being a cat)

Nice - I loved how you could make things even more frantic as you didn't have to worry about being hit yourself! I think there might be a bug with the spider counter - sometimes it went up without the kid hitting a spider.

The movement felt a little floaty at times, but everything else was great :) The art was also very cute.

HAhhahahaha that picture! I actually really enjoyed this game. Simply but creepy and difficult in a good way. There's something horrifying about having your owner get attacking spiders climbing on him/her.

Oh wow that was intense! I really wanted to keep the multiplier going, it was sad when a spider finally hit the kid ending my 60 multiplier. Really fun game, I loved the concept. Seriously, who wouldn't freak out in the middle of spider waves?

Gets exciting once things start to get fast. Nice music. Nice cat... good kitty ... who is a good kitty? ... why must kitty destroy what kitty loves?

Cute pixel art! The game gets really hectic over time making it pretty exciting. I wished you could go outside to the river, but it didn't seem possible. Tried every corner ;)

great effort well done, the cat clawing move is very satisfying!

Controls feel strange litle bit unresponsive probably because of transition animation. Cat character sprite looks like it doesnt belong in the same universe that rest of characters it look worse then others. At least it had realistic cat physique scratch the owner to death :D

Graphics are comfy and the sound effects are fine for the arcade feeling. Maybe being able to hit the kid is not necessary!

The movement is a little stiff.. The gameplay is basic but engaging. It lacks some depth though.

Really fun game, the concept is well found and funny. The graphics are fine and the music fit well the game. Good job !

nice and funny game, i enjoyed it. Though after like 7 minutes of play, it did feel a little repetitive. Other than that, great work on the game

Well rounded nice little game. LIked that everything was so well readable with the multiplier on the head of the girld and the different spider types.
One thing Iwould have wished for would have been a win condition.
Nicely done!

Really fun and intense! I liked it. Thank you for the game!

Cool. Cat vs. spiders! I love the pixelated splash screen at the beginning. It reminds me of "Zombies Ate My Neighbors."

The title screen drew me into this game, and it turned out to be almost as charming. I like that there's two different kinds of spiders, but I still feel like it could use something more to up the challenge.

Had a blast killing the little devil creatures. Otherwise, it was nice having enemy variety but the difficulty goes up fast. It would be cool to have a bit more to do besides running to reach the spiders in time.
