Ludum Dare 23
April 20th-23rd 2012 :: 10 Year Anniversary! :: Theme: Tiny World
Battle For 35 Leukothea - Rectifier - 48 Hour Compo Entry
Should work in Windows, Mac OS X, and Linux!
Mac and Linux users should install Pygame first.
I made an ASCII tower defense game, set upon a small asteroid.
An asteroid that, thanks to you, is becoming not so small.
It went well! I used Python and the Pytality console library that I made after Pyweek, which until now had not been put to the test of an LD48. And it worked really well.
The game came together much more rapidly than I'd expected, and seems pretty stable. The towers ought to be reasonably balanced between each other.
30 waves, three difficulties.
If you beat Hard difficulty, leave a comment! I'd like to know just how evil it is.
The game will try to run in either Pygame or native Windows console. If one of them fails, try the other - you can pass "pygame" or "winconsole" to it as a command-line argument to switch.
NOTE: If the windows .exe crashes immediately on load, please try the Python source link!
Arrow Keys: Scroll the map.
All other hotkeys are highlighted as [KEY] in-game.
