Toaster Defense

So! This is my second time entering Ludum Dare. Last time, I aimed for top 500 in Overall, and ended up #476. I did pretty well in Audio, capturing #141; on the other hand, Graphics did not fare so well, at #822.

So with that in mind, I decided to set two goals: top 400 overall, and top 500 in Graphics. As a result, I spent a lot of time designing graphics, and less time with everything else. I would have added SFX, more enemies, and some power-ups, but I ended up right at the limit with what I did create. In the future, I'm going to schedule my time, so that I don't end up with no SFX and less features, like I did this time... :))

Description:
In the not-so-far-away land of baked goods, a war has arisen. The Toast Kingdom is hogging the Toaster of Life, and the Kingdom of Toaster Tarts is demanding it for themselves! Your mission? Play as the Toaster of Life, and destroy as many Toaster Tarts as you can for the highest score.

This game was made in 48 hours for Ludum Dare 32. There are a lot of things that could be improved, and believe me, I am going to improve them. But I think this is a good enough game for 48 hours.... :)

Controls:
Mouse to aim
Hold mouse button to load
Release mouse button to fire
R to reload
M to switch to the menu

Any feedback is appreciated. Have fun!

Quite possibly the deadliest weapon out there.

Added in a toaster to shoot the toast. Also, burnt toast catches on fire, and all toast decays after a few seconds. (Press D to turn decay off.)

I'll try to update it some more later today, so stay tuned....

Thanks! I've added in a basic baddie (the Pop-Tarts want their toaster back) and given the toaster a smiley face. :)

Done! Submitted right before the deadline. I didn't get everything done that I had wanted to, but I think it's good enough for 48 hours.

Yeah, unfortunately most people don't separate jam and combo entries when judging. There's a huge difference between what one person can do in 48 hours and what a team of people with outside assets can do in 72 hours :D

I'll play your game (and everyone else's games) later. I'm decompressing right now hahaha

Hey ETH,

Nice little entry that puts a smile on my face and I am sure will do on my 5-year old grandson. Well Done!

Best regards from

Thanks, guys! I'm working on a post-compo version with many new features, and I hope to have it done to submit in the Stencyl Jam.
