    GERMS! - ahm99 - 48 Hour Compo Entry

    It is buggy but this is my first ludum dare so whatever. I recommend you join the germ team because the white blood cells are faster(I tried to fix that but it just didn't work). I made it because I thought of of how small germs are. It was hard and I learned a lot and next time I hope to do better. If you don't have java, Make sure you install that. Also, if you have a comment, post your score with it please. I recorded it so I may upload a time lapse. EDIT: if it's not working on web, download it. the download should work on all os.

    Do you have java? You have to wait a bit for it to load. Sorry about that. I'm a little new to games. this is probably my third game.

    Cute and Very Funny. Felt like a Football Game. Maybe you could continue to work on it and turn it into a football game ;-)

    I would have to redo it if I'd turn it to football because it wasn't written well but thanks for the idea and thanks for playing :)

    I'd post my score but every time but since continue is the space and attack is space I can never see the screen.

    Sorry about that. this is my first LD so it was more of a learning experience that an entry.

    I love the hairy little germ heads. My score for just standing there and letting them fight it out without me was 150. I don't know what other scores I got.

    I got 340 by just standing there, the white cells always seemed to win D:

    Congrats on your first LD entry! (check my game as well, the idea is kind of similar :P)

    A good first try - the game works, the sounds are cute, and it's kind of fun to run around hammering space. It might be cooler if there were fewer enemies to start and if they started at random locations, like the later dudes seem to. The intro is funny.

    It's a bit lame that the game only lasts for a few seconds, but you've got a good gameplay idea there. Might be worth expanding on. Good try though!

    Know you what it takes to finish a game. Next time you come prepared and you'll kick ass :) BTW, the web version works for me. I'm running JRE7 on a 64bits Win7.

    Great idea, not sure what to do besides punching air and the enemies, what are the winning conditions? Good job on your first entry.

    I can't seem to press space to attack more than once... A skippable intro would be nice but it sets up the immune system battle nicely.

    @mattperrin A "skippable intro" will be included next time.
    @AdventureIslands thw winning conditions are that all the enemy's are dead.
    @Valeour thanks. It lasted only a few seconds because I spent too much time on the intro so there wasn't enough time for actual gameplay. so next time I'll make something to speed up the intro.
    @DaveDobson thanks for the tip and thanks for playing.

    And to everyone who said they got points from just standing there, Join the germ team, I wanted them to be different in speed strength and some other stuff but the one was always winning so when I tried to change it back, It strangely didn't work so before next time I'll make some simple games that I can experiment on and fix some problems I had here.

    Heh - battles don't last too long - funny premise though. Web version worked fine for me.
