Newest stuff: Menus! Vastly improved attack mechanics/damage. Better (more!) scoring. Fancier title screen. Much better player movements. More sound effects. Fancy title screen effects.
Also, there's now a development blog, which you can find at http://lafoliedev.tumblr.com
Special thanks to slime and sharpobject for their support.
I've been working on this for the last few days. I've gotta say, it does resemble Gnx's (awesome) HeroSquare game a little too much at the moment. I don't mean to rip him off, it will change alot no doubt. Obviously, it's called UnLöve because it's about undead things made in Löve.... ha.
This game is basically a zombie survival affair. Stay alive, get points, blah blah. You start off with a knife, but there is a short sword to pickup straight away (for now). The short sword is good for 35 hits, represented by the bar beneath the weapon name in the HUD. When it runs out you're left with the knife, which has unlimited uses. Unless of course, you manage to find other weapons that the zombies drop! There are currently a total of 6 weapons, including the knife. They're all blades at current, though they do differ somewhat.
The gameplay is pretty basic at the moment, but it's fun to waste a few minutes on. It's now alot more playable than earlier versions, and there's music and sounds etc... funfunfun. As far as scores go... my average when testing is about 1000 points, but I do tend to just run at them like a maniac. And hey, the gameplay might be playable, but I have found that you can derive a few different strategies, however basic they may be, which is cool.
Screenshots of post-apocalyptic goodness:
(That is bartbes' screenshot. You can tell because it stands out from the rest. )
- Arrows: Move
- Space: Attack
- Right-Shift: Switch Weapon
- Escape: Quit to title (new!)
[*]Arrows Up/Down: Move cursor
[*]F1: Toggle Audio
[*]F8: Toggle Blood (title screen only)[/list]
Yep. Those little green squares are zombies. And they're out to get you... Mr WhiteSquareyPlaceholderyMan. Some of them will chase you. It's probably best to kill them first.
If you played/enjoyed it, please let me know your scores/opinions/suggestions/criticisms/comments!
Have fun! x
