Old MacDonald vs Zombies by rogueNoodle

[raw]
made by rogueNoodle for LD28 (JAM)
*** BUG NOTICE ***

For some reason, sometimes zombies won't appear at the start of a game - if nothing starts popping out of the ground when you're playing, please reload the page. Sorry about that!

********************

Old MacDonald had a farm. And on that farm he had a cow. Also, zombies.

Help Old MacDonald keep his cow happy by cleaning up after her, and in return, she'll be his best friend AND best defense against the growing zombie horde.

It's a story about friendship, cooperation and mutual respect. Also, zombies.

--------------------

HOW TO PLAY

--------------------

- You are Old MacDonald: move around the field using the ARROW KEYS

- While avoiding zombies, CLEAN UP after your cow. This will make her happy (you'll see a HEART over her head)

- When she's happy, whistle using the SPACEBAR and she'll run across the field to meet you, mowing down any zombies in her path

- And of course, score a lot of points

--------------------

If the music gets a little grating, you can toggle it on and off with the 'M'. The same can be done for the sound fx using the 'S' key.

Hoping to upload some downloadable builds (including a completely untested Linux version) in the near future (most likely over the weekend).

Good fun and great art.
Can't imagine how that field must've smelled with the sweet combo of rotting corpses and cow patties...ugh.

my score: 2743
It feels like a hardcore version of Frogger because the zombies move only from left to right :D

This is a nice, polished little game overall. The art style is very pleasant. I just wondered how the theme was used here (you only get one life ?). And the music feels too repetitive, mostly because you used a very well known theme (hiya hiya ho !).
This was a good experience overall !

Cheers,

Great job!
The artwork is pretty impressive for a jam, and I really like the mechanics.

I think the combo and scoring system could be a little clearer, but that didn't keep from playing a good 9 or 10 rounds.

The pixel art and the music are cute, and I like how the music changes with the game, really well done on that part. On the overall the game is kinda fun to play, the game mechanics are pretty clever too. Good job! I enjoyed playing this cute game! :)

Really cool! Liked the gameplay mechanic, thought it was really interesting. It got a bit out of hand with the zombies though, so I died quite often. Really nice work!

Although it's not a hard challenge (and thus it might get boring quickly), it was a fun experience and looks charming. GJ!

Superb entry! The custom piano roll really makes this, along with the fab pixel art and animation. The difficult ramp was just right and it was satisfying trying to line up multiple kills. Really polished and fun to play, thanks!

Perfect graphics, you are a pro. The game fits the theme great and lots of fun, this is a keeper!

Awesome!! How the hell did you even come up with an idea like this? My highscore was 25726.

It would do wonders with some other zombie types, maybe different interactions for the cow? Dunno, but I'd like to see this idea expanded further.

All my stars are belong to you.

I'm usually not a fan of zombie games these days, but for this one I'll make a big exception! It's a blast to play, the graphics are dynamite, and the choice for use of the theme is hilarious! One of the best games I've tried so far, hands down!

Brilliant style, and that cow was too cute!
Music fitted really nicely with the game and very challenging when I had too many zombies on screen. Well done and good job :D
