    Electron Cloud - Evilion - 48 Hour Compo Entry

    Maybe need a bit more adjustments and other balances, but it is really playable (but maybe hardcore), and there are ways to have fun !

    Click on an electron of another nucleus to steal it. When you have more than 10 electrons with you, you can click on the monster in the center of the world to trade 10 electrons for ("your number of electrons" -10)*2 + 10...So if you have 14 electrons, you'll receive 18 points, you see ?

    Play like hit-and-run, and be carefull, if you focus too much on a nucleus, he'll become angry...

    CLICK ON ATOM WAY TO SEE INFOS ABOUT HOW TO PLAY

    Nice graphics! The gameplay is really innovative!

    Nice think, but a little bit too random. At least I couldn't find out why I never seemed to catch an electron. Ah well, such is the live of an aggressive atom, I guess. :-)
    Interesting enough, it doesn't become dull after quite some time, even though all you do is clicking around. Cool!

    Interesting gameplay, but I agree with ratking above. I liked graphics and the intro. Cool music. Where's the source?

    Like the idea, and the gameplay is very original. Well done!

    It's a bit random yes ahah, I think I will work again on it later, to make better behaviour and polished gameplay. To reach a hight score, you must play like hit-and-run, or like a wise thief...

    @marudziik : You can listen the music on my soundCloud : http://soundcloud.com/titouan-millet/the-atom-way (I composed it and recorded it during this LD), do I have to put in the download also ?

    Love the intro, really gets you in the mood. Gameplay is quite original and fun. Well done!

    Nice and original game idea!
    Also fits well with the theme.
    Quite difficult though and it lagged a bit on my computer (Firefox 11, Ubuntu 12.04, Flash 11.2).

    The intro rocks !

    I really much like this game.
    Although the windows download does not work and you have to include the source otherwise you break the rules.
    I'll come back to rate you very positive if you do ; )

    Evilion says ...
    Apr 23, 2012 @ 6:54pm

    Ok sorry I didn't know we must provide the source ! I fixed that, you can now download the archive that contains my three .as files (ActionScript3 classes)

    Great game overall. :) Fits within the theme well, too. Awesome graphics aswell. I noticed I couldn't play the game twice in a row without restarting, but I didn't try it again so it might be a temporary problem.

    I'm going to second the lag issues. There was a bit of lag in my comp aswell.

    Now you got the best rating I gave so far ; )

    Thanks for the source. :D

    Like the graphics.
    And the intro!

    Apr 24, 2012 @ 12:10pm

    For the source, sorry it's not very clean...I program as a barbarian, with funny variable names xD

    This game turned out very nice at the end.

    Maybe you should concider integrating Kongregate's Achievements and Highscore API and putting it up there? You could make money with it.

    This has been really fun to play with. Actually I got a similar idea some time ago, but you've done it and in a really nice way. Hope you continue the develop

    This game is a success :) Great fun, nice gameplay.

    Evilion says ...
    Apr 25, 2012 @ 3:58pm

    Thank you for all your nice comments !

    The game is now on Kongregate, with highscore API ! I'll add Achievements later ! http://www.kongregate.com/games/Titoulion/electron-cloud

    Not bad, but is not clear to me the mechanics. :S

    V0ID says ...
    Apr 25, 2012 @ 4:36pm

    I would highly recommend a pause function as it goes quite long. A little bug: After restarting your last score is shown instead of 0. But with the exception of this it's great, I bet your highscore ; )

    Very nice game, it is fun to play and the intro rocks :) That's great that you made it to Kongregate !

    However you should had the score on the game over screen, and give the directions in a more clear way (the "tutorial" screen is not placed in an intuitive way (you don't reach it when you click on play, and when you do that first there is not information on what to do. The information in the intro is not enough to figure out what to do).

    The "web" link sends me to a strange facebook friendmaking page on kongregate and not to your game. Could not play.

    Apr 27, 2012 @ 12:50pm

    Very good in all aspects, just it's unclear to me how to get new electrons

    Apr 27, 2012 @ 8:47pm

    Very random, but pretty good.

    5/5 innovation

    Apr 28, 2012 @ 10:38am

    I still don't understand when I can and when I can't steal an electron, but I had lots of fun anyway! The art and the music are really well done, and the game play is original.

    Evilion says ...
    Apr 28, 2012 @ 11:34am

    If you just have been touched by another nucleus, you are colored in red, you are invulnerable and you can't steal electron for few seconds. The rest of time, you can !

    Cool concept, but darn near impossible to play on a trackpad (unfortunately for me!)

    I like how the other atoms get pissed at you.

    Fun! Good graphics and music, too.

    Nice game :-)
    I really like the idea.
    Ver fun game with great potential.
    Sme more balancing would be great. Wel Done!

    It's tough to control given that the entire control scheme seems to be based on moving the cursor quickly and trying to click electrons before your character catches up with the cursor, but that does lend a nice feel to the whole electron stealing process.

    Funny intro, and the gameplay's amusingly fast, if imprecise. Nice work :).

    Wyzfen says ...
    May 9, 2012 @ 8:46pm

    I liked the intro. I found it hard to click on the electrons. And once you get large, you cant get into other atom's clouds easily.

    May 10, 2012 @ 5:13pm

    Innovative gameplay, but the controls seemed a bit unresponsive.
    The intro was really cool though1

    Really fun!

    Nice work :)

    "And that, kiddies, is how atoms work."
    Nice game. I wish the clicking had perhaps a slightly higher radius. I do think it deserves a lot in the fun category, though.
