MegaFauna Not Found!

Australia was land to a variety of megafauna (over one tonne) such as Diprotodons and giant koalas before 40,000 BC. This changed when Homo Sapiens discovered the continent. Sapiens mastered the control of fire and they started burning large areas of forests. Entire species of animals went 404.

As a giant Lion of the continent, it is your duty to do your best and try and kill these aliens before they drive your species into extinction.

Humans are setting everything on fire in the known forest. Search for humans in the dark and kill them before they burn 75% of the forest. Make way through the fires by extinguishing.
P.S. Don't run into fire.

Feedback from the experts

Spartez Team: It's a hard game and not very fluid, some play tests may help balancing out the game before publishing. The story of the game got me interested and I was curious what was prepared for me. So much that I lost the game plenty of times before realising that I needed to kill the humans, not completely stop the fire :) For replayability value it would be nice to have some more variety of mechanics and balancing the level, like adding rivers maybe? I liked the implementation and the single image sprites. There was some performance issues when there was a lot of fire burning on the screen, but the minimap was top notch addition.

Ahmed Khalifa: First of all, congratulations on finishing a game and submitting it to the JS13K. I enjoyed that you invested time to try to have a narrative for the game and not being very abstract, I think the game could have smaller maps at the beginning because the area controls start very far away that I waste a lot of time from the beginning to reach one area and then because each area is further from the other it is hard to go and get control back. Also, Maybe have a mechanic about restoring the land to you to solve that problem. maybe get inspired from Defender / Aqua Kitty UDX which have a good balance between defending your humans/kitties and being overwhelmed with enemies. Overall, great job on submitting the project.
