Summary

[fr]: Un jeu d'arcade libre et multi-plateforme conçu à l'occasion du Ludum Dare 1 - sur le thème du gardien / tuteur, dans lequel le joueur ne dispose que d'un temps limité pour conduire son troupeau de gnomes à bon port (vers le trou), avec pour seuls contrôles la souris : en les attirant avec une carotte et en les bloquant par des murs. Assez drôle. [en]: A free/libre, cross-platform arcade game designed for the Ludum Dare 1 - theme guardian, where the player has only a limited amount of time to drive his small gnome to a safe harbor (in a hole), controling them with his mouse: he can attract them with a carrot and block them by walls. Quite funny.

Gnome Guard est un jeu d'arcade libre et multi-plateforme conçu à l'occasion du Ludum Dare 1 - sur le thème du gardien / tuteur, dans lequel le joueur ne dispose que d'un temps limité pour conduire son troupeau de gnomes à bon port (vers le trou), avec pour seuls contrôles la souris : en les attirant avec une carotte et en les bloquant par des murs. Assez drôle.


Gnome Guard était mon entrée au Ludum Dare 1 - sur le thème du gardien / tuteur. Dans le jeu, vous êtes confronté à une horde de petits enfants gnomes et devez les garder en sécurité après l’école.

Description [en]

Gnome Guard was my entry to LD1 – theme guardian. In the game, you are confronted with a horde of small gnome children, and have to safely guard them home after school.

Story (only read if you are bored)
____________________________________________________________

In this game, you play the role of the Gnome Guard. You have to guard and protect a group of small gnomes, who have lost their way home. This sounds quite easy, but it is not.

For one, you don't have much time. It gets dark very quickly in Gnomeland, and once the night sets in, evil creatures will arise and eat all the poor gnomes still helplessly wandering around. You will never see this though, because it's your job to not let it happen.

The second, and as serious problem, are the gnomes themselves. You thought, you can just tell them where to go, and they follow? You obviously never had anything to do with gnomes before. They will never do what anyone tells them.

With one exception, the Gnome Guard. As Gnome Guard, you have two ways to interact with the gnomes. You can guard them, and you can protect them.

The former you do by using the Gnome Beacon. It's a magical instrument, which emits a high frequency voice only audible to gnomes - and they will follow it. Or rather, they will blindly run to its direction.

This is where you will need your instrument of protection:
Which is - barriers. Simple, effective barriers, which not even gnomes can penetrate if built with no leaks.
(Especially note this last point: Only the smallest gap, and your barrier is as good as if it wasn't there. Gnomes are able to slip thru the even smallest gap - and when in panic they will do so, even if they fall into the trap behind.)
(Yes, there will be traps.)

____________________________________________________________
Controls
____________________________________________________________
Mouse-Right: Place Beacon + Clear Barriers
Mouse-Left: Place Barriers

Use cursor keys to scroll.

The box in the ground is the exit, where the gnomes jump in to get home (they live under the earth, and I ran out of time to make an animation).

The red boxes are traps, and gnomes die if they fall into it.

Blocks can't be penetrated, same as water - but you can set the beacon (the green column) in the water. The brown columns are the barriers.

Gnomes can slip through edges, so be sure to place enough barriers.

Test [fr]

Test (20020805 ) :
Pas facile : leur QI est proche de 0 et le temps est limité.
Pas mal.

Test (20020805 sous Debian Sid 64-bit) :

En dépit de son âge, il se compile toujours :)
Et il fonctionne bien (en plein écran).
Un gameplay assez fun.
