Add back to Ω500

remove bodies from auto sytem

NOtes:

Use your mouse to draw search patterns. When you find something, double click to dig. Spend your findings on expanding the business.

Aesthetic

  • "lemonade stand", hover bover, ghostbusters
  • C64 8-bit style/colours

Features

Layout

  • On a beach
  • Beach is arbitrarily long
  • Can click on employees to move to them
    • can't see the whole beach in one screen
  • Grid based
    • Might need A* for the bad guys?
  • How to dig? Just double click and auto?

Shop:

  • New employees
  • Better meters
  • Hat/water
  • Uniform

Maybe:

  • Have health that decreases - needs water. Hat can slow it.

Crazyiness

  • spawn new guys, all controlled by the same keys - cover more ground
  • some kind of "mass detector" to see a bunhc of ground at once
  • some way to stun the cops

Baddies

  • Surf patrol/cops bash you, and you're out for the day
  • Shark patrols near water will bite you
  • Sunbaker can attack if you block shade
You can’t perform that action at this time.
