    Darwin Fitotherapy - Rorkien - 48 Hour Compo Entry

    My first entry on LD.

    Done with pure java (using just a lib for sounds - which were made on bfxr), this game involves a lot of things, but none particularly fancy.

    The main point is about killing rabbits with fruit juice. Try to have fun, i guess.

    Controls:
    Arrow keys + Z/X/C
    WASD + I/O/P

    Tips:
    -You start with 2 pesky rabbits munching your trees. Expect that number to increase in some minutes;
    -Collect the fruits, make concoctions, throw them either at the trees or the fluffy devourers. The strategy is yours to ellaborate;
    -If you aim right, you can buff two trees at once with only one potion;
    -You can't win the game. You can just survive longer.

    -Potions are random. There's no way you can predict what are you going to throw next. But their colors are unique:
    *Red: Heals all plants hit to 100%
    *Green: Increases health regen on all plants hit
    *Light Blue: Increases growth rate on all plants hit
    *Pink-ish: Increases fruit rate on all plants hit
    *Orange: Incapacitates all creatures hit (Time depends on how many creatures are incapacitated)
    *Dark Blue: Awakens all incapacitated creatures

    The website is loading super slow for me, it tries for a couple of minutes and then timeouts. I'll try again later.

    Wow this is great, didn't take too long to figure out what was going on, and I had a blast!

    What a strange little game, I like it but I can't explain why...

    Fun little game. Although I had the same problem like others, it was hard to figure out what was going on at first.
    I survived 210 seconds... is that good? Well it was fun.

    Nice graphics, clean and good. Could be a bit more moody though, but they are very nice.
    It was fun to play. Theme wise though I did not see it there. But I guess it sure was a very hard theme so, yeah. Bunnies =)

    Urm yeah... nice game.

    Good, but can be a bit more challenging

    I survived 252 seconds.

    Here is my feedback. I hope I didn't misunderstood the gameplay.

    I think there is a kind of winnig move, to produce many juices and then throw 5 of them while walking in a direction. It results in an area which is covered by the juice.

    Sometimes I hit a rabbit and it doesn't died, so I think you should check if you got proper collision boxes.

    Is there any reason why the juices have different colors and why different fruits are needed?

    Was fun to play :)

    A really nice game.
    I loved the graphics and the gameplay was kinda funny.
    Nice work!

    This was totally trippy and fun! Particle effects were rad and was fun to wipe out a big bunch of rabbits in one go!

    Nice and unique idea! I like it! Don't really know what are the potions for and how to make the one you need if they are differ in any way... so it's needs some explanation.

    Yeah... Definitely a bit confusing. I don't really understand what's happening either, but I stayed around for 170 seconds, it said.

    OMG the bunnies relive!!
    276 seconds!
    I guess this is just about randomly making potions and hoping they work, right?

    I did not see any strategy to making potions, unless I missed something, so I ended up button mashing. But it was a fun time :) Nothing like a game about killing bunnies with fruit potions.

    Heh, the game is a bit silly, but it was fun to play!

    Seriously, wtf is going on? First rabbits die, then they come back to life? What am I doing?

    rhaasken says ...

    It is really hard to figure out what was going on, so I just ran back and forth making potions and throwing them without knowing what they did. Nice job on graphics.
