Ludum Dare 25
December 14th-17th 2012 :: Theme: You are the Villain
Bombardier - NeverAutomatic - 48 Hour Compo Entry
*Bugfix/porting(post-48hours): The game now runs in firefox, although it still seems to work best in chrome. Also a small bug fix so the game doesn't get stuck on level 15.*
You're a villain dropping bombs on cities. Killing people awards you money for upgrades. You get bonus money for killing multiple people with the same bomb. Super Goat is trying to rescue the people of the cities, so you should kill them before he gets to them.
(I didn't have time to include a help page in the game but it should be pretty straight forward)
-Click to drop bombs.
-Click the icon at the center of the bottom bar to access the upgrade menu.
-Explosion Radius: Increases the size of the explosion. Killing all who are hit by it.
-Shockwave Radius: Increases the size of the shockwave.
shockwaves can be used to push people around and possibly set up good combos.
-Bomb Speed: Increases the speed of the bomb. It will take less time to hit the ground.
-Fire Duration: increases explosion duration. Lingering explosive clouds continue to kill anyone who wanders (or is pushed) into them.
-Reload Speed: Reduces time to reload bombs.
-Bomb Capacity: Increases amount of bombs that can be fired before reloading.
I didn't have time to add a level cap either, so basically, when you can kill everything on the screen in one click, you've beaten the game.

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.
