    Ludum Dare 23

    April 20th-23rd 2012 :: 10 Year Anniversary! :: Theme: Tiny World

    Back to Browse Entries

    Manifest Destiny - lapogo - Jam Entry

    Controls:
    W,A,S,D - Move Up, Down, Left, and Right
    Left Mouse - Attack

    Goal:
    Get to Wave 10 and kill the boss!

    NOTE:
    After knocking ideas around for hours and developing the game the theme is very minimal (which is sad, the theme was great this time). The theme is mostly shown in the boss fight at the end!

    Updates:
    1.1 - I've made the game a bit easier, double your health and adding health packs that drop at random.

    Simplistic but efficient. I liked the effect when killing enemies and the camera shake when getting hit. It was kind of difficult to make it far tho since you loose health if the enemies even get close to you from an angle. The controls were good and it works perfectly on Linux using Wine.

    Too bad I couldn't use ZQSD on an azerty keyboard, arrow keys didn't work either.
    I felt that the gameplay was a little stiff, didn't think the movement was fluent.
    If you ignore that, you can easily lose hours in this game!

    brb, trying to kill boss.

    The particles are pretty gratifying. It was really hard to hit things with the tiny range of the weapon though.

    Didn't reach boss. Particles and sound effects were certianly gratifiying! controls were challenging but not too hard.

    I would try it if you had a Web or OSX version.

    Very hard! Makes me feel like a ninja when I kill people though.

    Based on 1.0, the contest version:
    It's so hard to win against the pilgrims, it's almost a realistic depiction of history lol
    But I had a lot of fun playing. Great idea to call it "Manifest Destiny". I often tried to attack enemies from the side, which always resulted in lost health, though it did not feel as if they hit me.
    Fun little game. I wish I would get to the boss.
