Description

Click on the available unit types to assemble your army and hit any key to send them off to battle! Units change color during battle to indicate how well they match up against whichever opponent they come in contact with. Disclaimer: Comes with no sound and only one level due to the hurried nature of production; I had about 8 hours to put this one together. But hey, it works!

    Good start! I included it in my GM48: Colors are Important compilation video series, if you’d like to take a look. :) https://youtu.be/vn9B8Izpgw4

    Indepent of the Installer (WHY PEOPLE IS SO ANNOYING), That's is a good Concept to this game so... Good UI and everything :D

    I know it was an accident, but i'm afraid you won't get too many ratings having compiled an installer. Most people won't install jam games.

    I did play this however, and it appears to be an interesting concept. I didn't understand how it related to the theme though. The UI also looked very stretched and hard to read the giant pixels. Clean this up and it could be a decent strategy game!

    Definitely don't use an installer next time, it's much easier as a player to use the straight executable.

    I'm guessing you had far loftier goals than you were able to pull off in the time you had, as the gameplay is pretty limited. I tried out a few different combinations of units/equipment but the combat happens so quickly it really wasn't clear what was going on, nor what the colors really mean. A narrower focus (more directly related to the theme) might have helped you achieve more in the limited time!

    Don't use installers AAAAAAAAAAAAA

    I still installed your game, though. I don't really see how this game has anything to do with the theme, there is no music, no sounds, not even any gameplay at all - You just watch a couple of people fight and have no influence on the battle at all.

      Yeah the installer was accidental, due to having 7 minutes to compile and submit, sorry about that. Tried to get it changed but that would've disqualified it so I couldn't :/

      As for the rest, could only do so much in the 8 hours or less I had.
