Ludum Dare 25
December 14th-17th 2012 :: Theme: You are the Villain
The Maze of Evil - RawBits - Jam Entry
The Maze of Evil
Once a great hero got hit by a rock from the skys. 'The Light has choosen me!' - he thought, I'm not kidding! This sucker went and find his destination, your hidden maze. Being a good host you have immediately started the elimination operation.
You have your XP flowing. Whit that, you can buy traps and monsters from the bottom right corner of the screen by clicking on the green bars under the item you whis for. Select the item by clicking on it in the red area.
Once the item is selected - and you have at least one of the kind then you can place it in the maze.
While time flies sometimes potions appear in the maze - this is why you have built it in the first place. The hero can pick those up and use them to fully heal him self. You don't know how many he got because you don't see in his pocket ofcourse.
Your monsters are start wandering as soon as they are placed and can wander into your traps - be wise. Traps are disarmed as soon as something walks into them. Multiple enemies can attack the hero at once and they can overpower him while he only can attack one at once.
You can estimate the heroes health by the amount of red on him.
Now you know everything. Kill that intruder!
P.s.: There is a goat and a unicorn reference in there somewhere. Who finds them first?
P.p.s: I've only 20 hours work in this project so sorry for no proper gfx. If you like the idea I consider finishing and expading 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.
