    Evil Death Robots Vs Bunnies - Team Superfluid - Jam Entry

    === THOSE CUTE BUNNIES MUST DIIIIIEEEE!!!!111 ===

    * Play as a hoarde of evil death robots!
    * Blast any bunny that looks at you the wrong way!
    * Turn based strategy, watch out for the lethal BUNNYBOT!!

    ----------------

    - Apols in advance that there aren't in-game instructions. Basically, click nearby your unit to move and shoot. If you can't move or shoot, click "next unit". This might not always work depending on the random layout of the little houses that you can't walk on ;) Long story short - we ran out of time. Thanks for playing anyway, comments hugely appreciated

    ----------------

    HOW TO PLAY

    - Use the mouse to move then shoot with your units
    - Click 'next unit' if there's nothing in range to shoot
    - Terminate bunnies with extreme prejudice!

    ----------------

    Created in 48 hours by Jim and Dave for Ludum Dare 25 "You are the Villain"

    Timelapses and postmortems to follow

    Thanks for playing, we truly appreciate your feedback!

    I wish the pace was a bit faster.

    Dec 18, 2012 @ 7:51am

    Thanks for the comments! Yes I totally agree re the pace, this was just something we ran out of time on ;)

    The game is a bit confusing to figure out at first.

    Dec 19, 2012 @ 7:48am

    @Dmitrix Yeah apols for that, we really planned a tutorial or some kind of instructions (had big plans for it in fact) but that feature was left on the cutting room floor with so many others ;)

    Had troubles with controls. Not always clicking in place invoked "move" action. Also start is a little bit slow. I would love to annihilate some bunnies a little bit earlier :)
    Nice graphics though.

    Dec 19, 2012 @ 8:44pm

    when did the rabbits build armored suits o.o

    Poor bunnies :D I enjoy tactical RPGs and I enjoyed yours! I know that there wasn't enough time but it would have been nice to contain units in a grid system or at least show unit move and attack ranges. Great job! :D

    the game is reaaally slow but thats because of the controls, it's really hard to click were you want, and there are way to much time between action, that makes the game really slow

    But overall I quite liked it ! I even killed all the bunnies :D

    Dec 20, 2012 @ 8:38pm

    And also I didn't ever had the chance to know what the brain thingy do because it moves so slow

    Dec 20, 2012 @ 9:45pm

    @michax @strkl Thanks for the feedback re the controls, despite the fact that probably half the entire time was sunk trying to get them right I agree they are sadly lacking! It was a mistake to combine two different scale tile maps and multiply different sized units- just too hard to get right ;)

    Dec 20, 2012 @ 9:48pm

    @GreenPixelDev Yes we were so close to showing the move ranges, it was just a step too far, in retrospect it was an important omission- it was our first attempt at a tbs game so we learned a heck of a lot about the key systems they use... Thanks for the feedback ;)

    I liked a lot of stuff about the game but, the first couple of times I played, the game jerked on me and stopped working after I had a unit move where the unit would just stay there and I couldn't click on next unit. I got it to work, though, on my 3rd try XD

    Might have been nice to include some challenge, without breaking the overwhelming/unfair aspect to the game. Maybe a time limit? You're competing with other divisions of bunny murderers?

    Pretty good game, I love the graphics in it even though some more time should probably have been spent on the unit controls. It's a bit confusing at first how to actually move your units as there isn't a visible grid for the movements, also managed to lock up the game by ordering one of my units to move to the very edge of how far it could move.
    Apart from that though it seems like a very nice game.

    The game kept freezing for me on the second turn.

    I like the visuals but i couldn`t play it right, kinda hard to understand =(

    Dec 23, 2012 @ 9:39pm

    Really like the visual style. I agree with some of the other comments, the pace could be a bit faster.

    Nice clean visuals, but the game-play is a little confusing.

    I see a brief flicker on the screen, but then nothing. Not sure if there's a problem on the site or if it's on my end. I'll try to play it again in a day or so. I'm intrigued by the title alone.

    Jan 2, 2013 @ 12:03pm

    @Sestren - thanks for that, it just takes a moment or two to load (should be < 10s I would guess...)

    Love hte graphics, game was a little slow paced though, took nearly 10 turns until i was even in range of bunnies and then it was just move/shoot/move. Could use more gameplay on top of it.

    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.
