i have played all the games.

all worked well on my computer.

the sounds volume was too high on Virux (even when volume set at 1), and on Virus! (no way to set the volume), and on Wuhan-Gang (no way to set the volume)
(tested with Windows volume at 50% using headphones)

now i realize that the sounds volume is most likely too low in my game :-\


no others problem noticed.


about the gameplay, well, each his own tastes  ;)

in terms of variety in the environment and gameplay elements, we can all agree that Stevie G did it again ( congrats  :) )

For Wuhan Gang you can set the master/fx and music volume via the options terminals at the HQ.

I'm finally back up and running after moving house and dealing with all the crap that comes from that. Had no internet access in the house for a week because BT screwed their lines up. That was.... helpful. Luckily I could hotspot my mobile but mostly did that for work purposes.

Anyway, obviously my game never made the finished line, and not much further than the video I posted around two months back, so that's dead in the water now. Looking forward to testing the entries this weekend and not sweating over whether everyone is going to hate my entry or not for a change :)

I'll be back in again next time.

Xerra, I think my screen grab of my virus sprites infecting one of my old compo entries mightve relegated you to 2nd place.... Sorry  ;D

I can reveal that you didn't :o

Sorry sorry sorry for the stupid delay in getting the results sorted and up but I've been bogged down with work and zonked when done to do much else.

I shall endeavour to definitely get this sorted today ( before 13th of May in the UK ).
