Ludum Dare 32 — April 17th-20th, 2015 — Theme: An Unconventional Weapon

CitySim 3000

by smbe19 - Compo Entry

Well, hello there!
You are the hero this city needs. Or at least the criminals of this city need you. You have developed a powerful weapon: through hacking you can control the traffic lights and surrounding cars. Use this power to eliminate the police from this city!

WASD: Control your car
Q: Hack traffic light
E: Hack / Unhack car
Arrows: Control hacked car
Space: Overview
Use hacked cars to eliminate police cars!

There are 7 different cities. They only differ in size (some levels have multiple cities), car count and enemy count.

This was my first "real" game I made in Unity and there were quite a few frustrating parts, but hey, I learned many new things.

Nice gameplay, but I think you didn't had much time to work on the graphics, so, this game with better graphics would be fun =D

Hi there, I really liked the mspaint style graphic, and the overall city looking like.
However, the game is too simple in its current state, and traffic light don't do a stuff. But I think it could become really funny with more content.

Clever game mechanic and concept. With just a few tweaks it could have more staying power. Keep it up!

Worked nicely for me apart from a few minor camera glitches.

Interesting atmosphere, but the gameplay felt a bit simplistic. Spent most of the game just staying still and hacking car after car and driving them into the nearby polices :P. After I won I took a quick look around the city too.

Nice gameplay but I really don't understand why you need to control the traffic lights, cause you can just smash police with other cars
But even with an easy ddifficulty I liked it!

For a first game, its not bad. Little simple and hacking the traffic lights seemed like they didn't do anything. Keep it up.

I like the 3D world. A bit more content, for instance more hacking mechanics, would add more variety to the gameplay.

Clunky controls, but it's a fun idea
