Ludum Dare 25
December 14th-17th 2012 :: Theme: You are the Villain
Weapons of Mass Construction - dan.jeffrey - 48 Hour Compo Entry
**MADE A FEW QUICK CHANGES TO LEVELS FOR LESS OP AND MORE MINDBOGGLING STUFF, PLAY "FIXED" VERSION FOR THESE CHANGES***
Also, make sure to read the post-mortem! http://www.ludumdare.com/compo/2012/12/19/weapons-of-mass-construction-a-post-mortem/
You are a malevolent god who wants to stop all good guys in the world.
The good guys have gotten lazy and have created a robot to do the work for them: the Heroic Emulated Redeemer Object (or H.E.R.O. for short.) They have mass-produced them and sent them out through teleporters to save Princess Goat. Your goal is to STOP THE ROBOTS FROM SAVING THE DAY!
(Btw, the problem I needed to fix is that I gave myself 999 of each item for testing purposes and forgot to change it back on one of the levels, so it goes)
PROTIP: Make sure and let H.E.R.O. run through the level without obstructions before you try and solve so you know what path he'll take!
This is also the first game I've ever completed so yay.

IMPORTANT NOTE: If you want to place in the final results, you NEED votes. The easiest way to get votes is by rating other games. Judging lasts for 3 weeks following the end of Ludum Dare. For best effect, rate 20 games as soon as possible. Rating more games is encouraged.
MORE TIPS AND DETAILS AT THE BOTTOM OF THIS PAGE
REMEMBER: The “Theme” category is only for the main theme (You are the Villain). Don’t penalize for not using Goats.
TEAMS: Teams entering the Jam should pick a single representative to submit your game, or create a team specific account you can share. We currently do not support Team Voting, but sharing an account and together playing and rating games is acceptable.
NOT LOGGED IN?: If you get a message about not being logged in, even though you are, it’s because your web browser cached the non-logged in page. You can fix this by either refreshing your cache or clearing your cache. CTRL+F5 in many browsers. Chrome is a bit more work. Press F12 to enable Developer Mode, then you can right click on the refresh button and select “Empty Cache and Hard Reload”. This option is unavailable if you are not in Developer Mode.
We’ve identified the problem, and should have the page caching bugs fixed for next Ludum Dare.
PORTS: Ports to other platforms can be done after the deadline. That said, the sooner you finish your port, the sooner people can play your game, improving your chances of placing in the final results. For best results, provide a Web version of your game, or a Windows version with no dependencies. Also be sure to rate about 20 games to improve your visibility.
MY GAME DOESN’T SHOW UP: If you can’t find your game, it’s usually because the URL to your downloads are missing ‘http://‘. Fix your URLs (http://mysite.com/mygame.zip) and you will show up.
MY GAME CRASHES, IS UNBEATABLE, OR I MADE A TYPO: We allow you to fix crash or win condition bugs after the deadline (in a sense, like “porting” to support more players). We also allow “typo” bugs. I.e. A true that should have been a false, a word that should have been a different word, very tiny changes that you would have caught if you had more sleep. We leave this open to interpretation, but generally speaking your game should be identical to the game you submitted. No new features, just things you messed up last minute. Typos.
