Smooth Operator by pjchardt

made by pjchardt for LD28 (COMPO)
Showdown. Only way to survive? Knock someone's head off! Problem is, you can only attack once. But so can they. Then block. Problem is, you can only block once. Then fake, but yeah, problem is you can only fake once.

Smooth Operator is a frantically paced fight to the death where every failed move puts you at more of a disadvantage.

Important: This game is 2-player only!

This looks really cool! Local multiplayer games are the best. I plan on coming back to this later and rating it when I have a friend.

I love the graphics and audio.

Fast! Maybe you could try putting the controls on a joypad stick and have the analogue position blend between the different fake, block and attack pre-poses?

I like it, very stylish!

Thanks to everyone who is going out of their way to play Smooth Operator with others! I know from my personal experience playing others games I tend to do it at night and so I don't generally have someone else to play a 2 person game with. I greatly appreciate it.

Very fun; my brother just keeps beating me. I will be bringing this game up again and again in the future until I actually beat him.

Agreed, "player x is better at videogames" is much more rewarding than anything else I've seen before :P

This was a great game to play. It's complete for me, can be played for hours honestly. Big fan!

YEESSSS! Congrats for this one. Veeeeery smooth gameplay, loving it. Network play would be awesome. Only thing is: I really don't like time constraints -.-

Apart from that its brilliant game with an awesome style!

Thanks dudsen! I would love to make it online multiplayer! Never done any network code though...

Put a IA and I will play it for decades.
24. Dec 2013 · 21:03 CET
Very nice graphics and audio, really fun to play with another player. Great job!

Brutal animations and a fantastic art style and colour pallet... the music suits the game very well - well done! Rated highly. :)
05. Jan 2014 · 13:55 CET
Amazing!. You should add some AI for one player mode.
05. Jan 2014 · 14:03 CET
Simple but fun. I love seeing more multiplayer games. I had a great time playing with some friends.
07. Jan 2014 · 01:37 CET
Excellent! Loved the idea, the gfx, the music. Everything. Unfortunately I couldn't find a friend to play. Its a very good twist to paper, rock, scissors mechanics. This could be a best seller in iOS. Contrats.
