Forest Rivalry

by Windmill Games - Jam Entry

A fast paced and intense duel to the death. Shoot the ball on your enemy in order to kill them, first to 5 points wins.

This game was made with local multiplayer in mind, however there is a singleplayer mode. We recommend that you use a controller! You can play local multiplayer with just 1 keyboard or 1 controller and keyboard or 2 controllers.

Controller (Recommended)
Left stick = move
Right stick = aim
Right trigger = hit
Left trigger = vanish

Keyboard controls
Player 1
W/A/S/D keys = move
Spacebar = hit
Left shift = vanish

Player 2
Arrow keys = move
Right ctrl = hit
right shift = vanish

The closer you are to the ball, the harder you shoot.
Vanish makes you immortal for 1 second.
Press F for fullscreen (Only works if you are in Controls (from menu))

Pretty Cool, although I couldn't play it with someone else yet.
Do you know the game lethal league? It's quite similar :)

The art is badass! Reminds me of Castle Crashers! This game is also quite addicting. Good job dude.

Good idea! maybe it is just me, I cannot beat the single player.

Amazingly polished. The puck felt really good to hit. Local multiplayer was great. Well done!

I loved the graphics, and you always need a 2 players game play with your friends!

Only played against the bot so far, I might come back and redo my rating if I manage to play someone to play with.

Moving up and down in the menus was somewhat clunky with the gamepad, but other than that the game worked nicely with a PS3 controller using xboxdrv on my little Linux netbook. The AI provided a decent opponent and felt fair to play against. Aesthetics were top notch and the game was quite polished for a Ludum Dare entry. Maybe there could be some settings that the player(s) could choose before beginning a game, for example the number of rounds and the movement speed of the characters (perhaps a little too slow by default?). Missclicked on the two player option at the start and thought that a way to return to the menu from the game would've been a nice addition.

Of course the game could've been expanded (powerups etc.), but I'd say it's a solid game all around.

I love Lethal League so I really enjoyed playing this one! Not really innovative but really fun and pretty impressive for a 3 days game! Well done :)

Hey, I liked your game it was actually fun.
You can improve the audio and the graphics at some point but overall not bad!

Ooo, very pretty game! Everything felt top notch! Even being able to push the enemy into the deaththingamajib!

Really great game, although it ran poorly on my laptop; but my laptop is crap, so no worries. I think this could have been nicely expanded on with some levels and some stories!

The AI was pretty nice, interesting gameplay. The rain added nicely to the mood, well done!

Nice player vs player game, liked the character designs but just wish the player movement was a bit quicker. Think it would help make the playthroughs a little shorter and would help increase the urgency.

Lovely graphics! I included it in my compilation video series of the Ludum Dare 37 games, if you’d like to take a look. :)
