    Guardian III: Corruption - HeroesGrave - 7dRTS / Mini LD 44 Entry

    [Requires Java 6 or higher to run]

    "When crystal meets flame, corruption becomes cure..."

    The Lord of Corruption has won. Your kingdom is in ruins.

    You escape to a new land with you 3 most trusted advisors, disguised as peasants & workers, hoping to start again.

    It was futile to try and escape unnoticed.

    The Lord of Corruption, with his power constantly growing, summoned corrupted asteroids from deep in space, and has sent them hurtling for you new land. And with them came nightmarish creatures. Once planted, corruption spreads out around the land, further aiding in the destruction of your world.

    You, starting with 4 units, must survive and find the cure to the corruption. In the heart of every meteorite is a small pink crystal. This is the key to saving the world.

    BEWARE: You cannot die in the corruption, you will only become part of it.

    "When crystal meets flame, corruption becomes cure..."

    Good luck, have fun, rate the game fairly, and leave a comment.

    Also, feel free to look into the source if you want to know how I did something. Patents are evil, but don't forget that so is copyright infringement ;)

    I'm really sorry, but I'm not sure how this game works. All I've got is an empty map. I tried pressing all the buttons but I don't know what to do. I had no nothing :(. The game looks really cool and I'd love to give it a go. Can you give a bit more information about the controls please?

    That would be a bug caused when a suitable spawn area can't be found within the allowed radius.

    Press DELETE to restart.

    Most of the controls are like other RTS's. Left click to select, right click to move/set task area. Ctrl+Number to create a squad. Press the same number by itself to select that squad.
    Other controls are simply key presses to select from available tasks.

    F12 to screenshot.

    GRRR... I love the random generated terrain... I had to hit delete several times before I got a game going... I was excited to see all the building options.. I died several time due to curoption spawning too close ... I had to restart sevral times because of sending a builder to build something and then something getting in the way and then he wouldnt take commands any more. The game really tried my patenice I tried at least 10 times to make a house... it was like a puzzel makeing it need more space inside then walls even at 4x5 you end up with 20 walls AKK in fact it's almost imposible ... ok just frustaiting I can imagine cool stuff just not here.

    If you look carefully at the fifth screenshot you can see the layout of a few buildings.

    Thanks I guess I was thinking there need to be more walls. I guess from playing mine craft. Sorry I got so frustrated, its
    cause I had lots of hope for your game!

    Yeah, I get too focused on gameplay during these competitions and neglect the polish.

    Did you get it to work in the end?
