:::: Newgrounds Game Jam #2 (Winter Edition, 2010) ::::

Team Ermine presents Ermy and the Frozen World. A shooter meets defense game. This is our work after nearly 72 hours of dedication. After losing an artist and our musician, Respect switched teams to help with art.

The player must help lil' Ermy to protect his fire, which is the only fire in the whole frozen world. Animals across the world want Ermy's fire, they want it... Dead or alive.

Are you ready to help Ermy?

WASD to move.
MOUSE to shoot.

Note: There was a lot more we wanted to do with the game and we plan on releasing a "deluxe edition" with all the awesome features we didnt have time for. Just imagine, lots of weapons, more upgrades, bosses, medals, high score tables, music/sound and much more!

A bit bland

Another very polished game. Nice music and great enemy variety, though I'd like some more powerups. The game's a bit on the bland side though, and the speed upgrade is useless.

Team Ermine, good job.
I like game play, and that how your team have made it.
Most fun was see those different type of enemies.
Ice cube was the best !
About shop, I thought there would be more upgrades, but it was ok.
But in the ending game was getting really hard, so I think there was a need for more upgrades.
But I undretsand it is game jam and it isn`t possible to make these games really like huge games.

Good job team Ermine wrrrrrr.
Even you dropped me out, I give you 8 wich is good, but say thanks to Jim.

Good game, but...

It still needs some things.

-When I was in the shop, the window blocked the view of how much money I had.

-Needs more levels of power ups and it needs to be clearer that you've actually bought the item. I tried to buy Rapidfire and it went dim, but when I got back to the level, I'm not sure it gave me what I was trying to buy. I did have enough money. I wanted to buy 2x Rapidfire, but with it dimmed, I couldn't click a second time.

-Needs power up vs enemy strength adjustment. By level 4, there were so many enemies on the screen that I couldn't kill them in time. Just concentrating in the enemies from one side STILL allowed those enemies to reach my fire.

Other than these few adjustments, this was a fun game. :)

Like the author comments says, we will be adding all of that and much much more now that the 72 hour Game Jam is over! Let me know if you have any other suggestions!

Really neat game. Yes I can TOTALLY imagine all the possibilities, with those ideas for expanding/improving the game.
Hey um question here, is it actually possible to get past wave 4? I submit to you that it is NOT!

Thanks for the fun.
