Hi,

I want to present my game 'ApoWomenInvasion'.

In ApoWomenInvasion, you are the last man on earth and the women are coming out of the woodwork to get you and get in your house. Without any weapons, the best you can do is use yourself as bait to lead the women under falling bombs.

It's simple and fast. Use the arrow key to move and the spacebar to scream. =)

My plan was to implement an online highscore. But I don't know how to do it. Have you some tips for me? The offline version has a highscore file. But how to manage it online ... I don't know.

Download and the applet: Click here

What a strange game! Fun though - why do the women stick to the targets?

I used GoogleApps for the highscores for Sparrow.

The women stick to the target because the bombs are sparkling and the women like that. =)

Thanks for the link. I will test it soon =)

Beautiful! That is some really nice work there. Of course I sucked at it, lol. And thanks for giving it in an applet! Finally! I have a hard time using webstart due to the fact that my add/remove list is packed full of games that wont remove!

Thanks!

A new version is out.

Whats missing:

Use javaws -viewer to look at the cache.  If you delete the cache tey will also get deleted from the installed programs list.

Also nice little game.  The thing that makes it hard is finding a target before it blows up.  Maybe they should last just a couple of seconds longer.

I'm on a macbook pro.
Sometimes the game would stutter and one of the keys would get stuck as pressed, meaning the guy would keep running in the direction I last held down.

Gameplay wise, I don't really like it. Running away from the women is easy since they're so predictable, and finding a bomb is luck based. Most bombs are too far away to reach in time, and when you do reach it, most women will get caught on each other forming a big line out of the center of the blast area. Shouting seems to serve no other purpose than to unstick the player.
The graphics are mostly nice.

Thanks for testing the game!!!

Now there is an arrow to show the bomb when the bomb isn't on screen and the bombtimer is longer (+1,5 second). =)

To the sexism discussion:
The game is only fun. If you like I can put zombies in it. If you open the jar, you see my first plan was to make a zombiegame. But I like this version =)

Heh, funny, well-made, and sexist. You've crossed the line into the territory of the ridiculous, so I think that the sexist part of it is fine. Once you've gone so sexist that it's completely ridiculous, I think you're pretty much safe.

Anyway, I enjoyed what you have so far. I think it could use a bit more variety, and improving the following AI so that they form crowds instead of lines should help a lot, especially because then it will actually be possible to lead a giant group of them to their deaths (at this point they tend to get in each others' way and so you can't get them all).

I think it would also help to have them do a bit of wandering, basically by doing an orbit type thing (they have a center point and a distance vector, the distance changes linearly but never is greater than the orbit) or something similar. As long as it looks like they have a bit more wandering to them, and more autonomy.

xyle if you got windows go to control panel double click the java icon and under temp internet files click view and start deleting all the webstart entries low and behold they will be gone from your add/remove list..

for an online score this is how i do it.
using my server program i read the highscore data and put it in a text file then i use php to read the file and show it on the website.

<?php

$lines = file('http://www.kickassevolution.com/highscores.html');

foreach($lines as $line_num =>$line){
    echo  htmlspecialchars($line) . "<br />\n";
   if($line_num==9){
      break;
   }
}

?>

i also get my game to read the same file

Oh yeah, I also forgot to mention that you should have the women come onto the screen in groups as well, and pop out of random places (like from behind trees and whatever) instead of the constant stream coming from the edges. It becomes impossible to get very high scores once you've gotten rid of the initial chunk of women unless you sit around and wait for more to come in. The spawn algorithm should probably be dynamic.

If you choose hard, then you are a woman and the men want you Cheesy

..hence the difficulty 'hard', ho ho. Sorry couldn't resist  Lips Sealed persecutioncomplex

Nice game  Smiley
To add to the silly sexist theme, maybe you should give it a ridiculously cheesy pun name like they do in the 'adult movie' industry (you know, 'Night of the giving head', 'Shaving Ryans Privates', that kind of thing)

The game is fine. It's so far into silly that it's funny.
Sexism per se is in no way funny. I was referring to the posts in this thread.

As for no women reading these forums, I doubt that.
