Well, Mike ran in to problems getting working properly with about 12 hours left in the Compo, so this is the backup plan.

Room Rescue

by Tbeakl - Compo Entry


This is a game where you drive a robot around with limited resources which has to rescue people from a room which will be destroyed, you fail if the robot runs out of energy. You have to get the people back to base.

I have no idea if the Mac one works.

Interesting little game. Seemed a bit too easy, even with the traction set to tracks and the passenger bay set to small, it seems that you can complete the level with quite a bit of power left over. Anyway, good job :D

Interesting idea, although I'm not entirely sure what I was supposed to be doing. It seems that if you choose a passenger bay too small then you end up with a full passenger bay and nothing you can do about it. Perhaps I'm missing something, but if I am then it wasn't very clearly explained.

Normally I'd forgive a spelling mistake or two in an LD game, but since it's a text-only game, everything really should be at least put through a spellchecker. Also, the line breaks should be carefully checked to make sure that you aren't cutting any words in half or starting new lines with a space.

I quite liked the use of colour to show the player the type of terrain that they were currently on without having to use the corresponding letter though.

Keep making games! :)

>>> I have no idea if the Mac and Linux ones work if you have a console they might.

Just so you know, the Linux one will NOT work as you can't run a .exe on Linux without special software.

You have to bring them to the Capital B.

Make a Zip file with all the content need to run and then link to it. ;)

Overall, cool idea!

Neat little game, nice idea. Not too hard to beat once you understand what you are doing.
