    Zombie Fisticuff Quarrel - deps - Competition Entry

    Multicolored zombies, everywhere! And only one man is man enough to handle this! It's Mr Monocle! And he knows the art of fisticuffs!

    "It's time to fisticuff and drink some tea, and I'm all out of tea!"

    How to play the game:
    Beat up zombie. Pick up zombie. Throw zombie at other zombie, because it deals more damage that way.
    There's also boxes and barrels to pick up.
    Eat food or die.

    Green zombies are easiest. Blur are hardest. I let you figure out where the yellow zombies are in that list.

    * Features fully animated images of me!
    * Features nasal music, also by me
    * Now also for windows computers! o/

    Have fun!

    EDIT: It appears that my OSX binary might have problems with OSX 10.5, so if you are using that OS I suggest you download the source instead. It will hopefully be fixed in a near future.

    Punch the zombies! Quite a solid 48-hour game. The graphics do an excellent job of conveying meaning. Sorry, no rating for sound because my VM that Gosu runs on doesn't do sound.

    I don't see what it has to do with the theme, but I enjoyed the humor. :)

    "Beat up zombie. Pick up zombie. Throw zombie at other zombie, because it deals more damage that way. "
    You _can_ beat a blue zombie using your hands, but it's advicable to throw knocked down zombies on him. :)

    A long time since I saw digitised people in a game; sort of missing that style now. Animations, although not using a lot of frames, were very effective and obviously modelled with great enthusiasm. Ultimately, I had endless fun beating up deps, then throwing deps at deps :)

    this game makes me want to get gosu and code my next LD48 entry in sweet sweet ruby... although i think i'll have to settle for C

    alright let's get into this

    yes, fighting games are an invention but it's nice to pick them up and throw them at others... especially considering that they're all the same person

    it gets a little repetitive but i didn't actually get bored whilist playing it, as i thought it wasn't going to get much harder i died... point for improvement would be multiple fighting moves, but seeing as you can throw barrels of explosive stuff i think i'll have to give you that 5th star

    i can see where you're coming from wrt the theme, it's standard but it works

    graphics are really quite gnarly and quite complete

    audio... it has music, and the sounds are quite fitting, and i love the method you've used

    this game is dripping with humour

    overall... guess

    not many screenshots but plenty of game-related updates and a food diary so i would classify this as a very good community effort

    Avira detected malware in main.exe - 'TR/Dropper.Gen'

    May be a false positive, but I'm not running this one just in case

    That's odd. You're the first one to report anything like this. I have avast running on the laptop I used to produce that binary and it didn't find anything. :/

    This was great! Very funny and I love that you put yourself animated into your own game as both protagonist and the zombies! The music, sound effects, and graphics cracked me up in a good way. The game was fun enough too but a bit too easy in the long run. I made it pretty far though.
