1hgj - Fruit Soldiers

I originally made this for the One Hour Game Jam, and the theme was 2 Player*. It's a non-violent, action-packed 1- or 2-Player game that's done in about 5 minutes.

Win the game by collecting more fruits than your rival. When the time runs out (measured by the GREEN BAR), then the game is over. Whomever has the highest score wins the game!

By smashing into blocks, you will eventually destroy them. Sometimes they leave behind powerup gems:
- Oval gems will increase the damage you do to blocks.
- Square gems will increase the score bonus you receive for picking up fruits.

Player One is the Blue Knight, and the Player Default in 1-Player Games
Player Two is the Red Knight

Press 1 for a 1-Player Game (control the Blue Knight with the ARROW KEYS on your keyboard)
Press 2 for a 1-Player Game (control the Blue Knight with a Gamepad plugged into your PC)
Press 3 for a 2-Player Game (control the Blue Knight with the ARROW KEYS on your keyboard, control the Red Knight with a Gamepad plugged into your PC)

I made this game with my twin nephews in mind. They're both six years old. One's favourite colour is blue, while the others is red. If I only had dinosaurs instead of knights, this game would be complete perfection as far as they're concerned. Hopefully you enjoy it too! Now version 1.2, which implements single-player games and offers control schemes for either keyboard (using the ARROW KEYS) or a Gamepad.

Artwork for knights and fruits by Clickteam. I did the blocks and the UI. Music by Clickteam. Victory SFX from Centipede (Atari, 1982). Other SFX made by me in bfxr.

*: Except, the theme really wasn't "2 Player." I don't exactly know what the theme was this time around. For some reason I received messages that read, "Something is wrong with our jam scheduler" and so on at the website, so this is probably an old theme. Oh well.
