Tower of Bees!

by Mack101dog - Jam Entry

This is Tower of Bee's, a game made in 72 hours by two people for Ludum Dare 37. This was our first Ludum Dare that we participared in together. We originally planned to have many more features then the final product. For example, we planned on having 16 different spells instead of the final five. We also planned on having more than just bees as enemies. We planned on a ending instead of a endless game. But, as normal with Ludum Dare, we ran out of time in the end. Having worked to the last minute to make a product, we proudly present 'Tower of Bees!'

-5 Different Spells
-1 Enemy
-1 Room

-W, A, S, D for movement
-Mouse for aiming
-Scroll Wheel to select different spells
-F to restart
-K to quit

Also, if windows detects it's a virus, it is NOT.

Lovely graphics, could have done with sound though, for a bit of player feedback, it was hard to tell whether I was being hit, and when my shots were actually connecting. That said, I liked the variety of spells, magic mines being my favourite :D

Nice graphics, I agree that sound fx would've pulled it together. L was never quite sure if I was hitting the bees with some of the attacks. Good work though! Why bees?!?

Alright, first of all I'm really scared by bees in real life. So you got me there...

The graphics is simple, yet it does its job and with variety of spells it is kind of fun. Which is important. You fit the theme nicely, yet the audio for spells is missing - that could make the game a lot better.

Anyways, good job and keep up the good work.

Liked it well enough. I would tone down the use of particles a bit. Impressive amount of spells though. Nice work.

Nice job for a first one.
The spell effects stay a bit long on the area and after a few waves make it very hard to move.
A bit repetitive maybe.
An effect to tell us we are touched by bees could be nice ^^

Good level and art design. Please disable voting for Audio in your entry as there is none. Make the bees move more erratically / aggressively to make them less like cannon fodder. :) Nice one.
