    TreeVolve - DaviDeMo - Jam Entry

    And finally we can release, after some problems with the uploading...

    Save the mother tree from the attack of invaders that for no logical reason want to kill you all.

    Defend the worker from the invaders, they will work for you heal you and "evolve".


    The game is not finished but we really want to develop it out of Ludm Dare.


    Edit settings:
    - Open settings.in with a text editor

    windowX = width resolution
    windowY = height resolution
    fullScreen = 0 for window mode 1 for full screen

    follow the original space rules in the settings =)

    Know issues:
    - sometimes the worker stuck inside each others - seems fixed report please =)
    - if you pause the game and start it again it will launch a big cheat O.o - seems fixed, report please =) thank you
    - random stuff :-(

    I like the game, the music and the graphics, and the relation to the theme is strong. I'm a bit disappointed, though, that once you lose your workers, you can't get them back (at least, I couldn't find any way to). The game also gets rather repetitive.

    THank you @Timster Studios: yes, I had to drop out some features and one feature was the skill to create new workers. I will try to finish it because I liked the idea... maybe for smartphone I will see =)

    Nice game. A bit repetitive, but fun.

    Wow, it's awesome ! The only problem is the difficulty : it's too easy, so not very fun.

    Very nice game. It's very addictive :)

    Looks great, but as someone pointed out, it would be good if you could get your workers back somehow.

    @AdricZero: thank you, it was a really big rush but very fun to develop =)

    Very cute game :) It's fun and quite addictive, only thing that bothered me was the collisions, sometimes aiming was kinda hard. Great work on the graphics and audio.

    DaviDeMo says ...
    Aug 28, 2012 @ 4:59pm

    @pythong: Escape button on keyboard then "exit" wasn't working? :-(

    thx guys, I will try to improve it out of the competition with your feedback =D

    Very nice idea.
    I love the tower defense type of game.
    Continue with the good work you do ;)

    Aug 28, 2012 @ 8:00pm

    Well, I'm having a lot of fun with it and Tower Defense is one of my favorite genres, owing to Elona Shooter.

    Please continue to develop for this and release a full game! <3 It already plays nicely and it's genuinely fun.

    I really like your idea. With workers gathering resources and having to protect them. Nice audio and graphics. I did however find the game very easy with no balancing whatsoever of powers or enemies. Different enemy types would be really nice. Also I couldn't close mine down and had to ctrl alt del out of the game, which isn't very pleasant.

    DaviDeMo says ...

    Can someone report me that "Escape" button on keyboard isn't working for you? because mine is working well O.o

    I was able to play it fine now at home. Thanks for fixing I love the graphics and audio. wow really nice stuff here.

    Good all round entry here.

    Both the graphics and audio make this game very appealing. The gameplay did get a bit repetitive and it would have been nice to be able to zoom out because it did feel a bit 'squashed'

    Overall, very nice work :)

    Controls felt pretty clunky and scroll is horrible (why no keyboard option?..) and the gameplay itself felt rather slow and not very satisfying - but the art was absolutely gorgeous.

    Mother nature is beautiful. The graphics are professional and create the right mood. I have realized very late that you can scroll the map and are not limited to the narrow section you see when you start the game.
    With finer movements of the workers, more "evolution-elements" and some different enemies I am sure this can be a great game :-)

    Well I don't know if the game works right for me. The green things are easy to shoot and it isn't getting harder. The blue guy are unharmed I can't imagine how they can hurt. And lastly, after the 2nd upgrade the top left bar was filled just a little bit and the blue guys did not do anything. Is this right?

    Anyway the game seems to be good. Nice art and music. The should be some more features because like this the 2 upgrade you get is useless.

    Currently it is very slow paced to be enjoyable. The graphics were pretty nice but I suppose you gave them a lot of gravity instead of gameplay and went out of time. Still it certainly shows that it could be developed further post-compo. :)
