First couple of notes:
1) This game may not suit to the most sensitive players. It has a theme of natural disasters and it contains pixel blood and pixel death. (pixel blood can be turned off)
2) This game is a lot about luck. People who like games based purely on skill may not enjoy this one.
3) You need the Vitalize! plugin to play this game in your browser (IE, Firefox).
EARTHQUAKE MADNESS! is somewhat unsual game in its concept. Your goal is to produce a major earthquake and chain of earthquakes that will throw all the hotel guests out of their windows. But then, you must save all the poor victims from dieing. The final score is the number of saved people. How do you do this? With just one mouse click + luck + capability to analyze the environment to make sure your timing for launcing the earthquake is optimal.
Luck is needed when predicting the possible epicenter for the earthquake and creating a long chain of post-quakes. On the other hand, you need to pay close attention to several variables of the environment. These are:
- earthquake duration (if launched now)
- potential epicenter area size
- parachutes availability (people need these to be rescued)
- hotel's floor number
- hotel's popularity (determines how fast the rooms are occupied)
- average guest-group size (how dense are the rooms occupied)
- wind (if strong, people will float out of the screen with their parachutes and sadly die)
You have 30 seconds time to find the best balance (compromise) between these conditions and launch the earthquake. Then you just sit back and see how the situation develops.
Other features include:
- obviously a hi-score list
- full in depth instructions with NAQ-page
- individual hotel guests with personal information (click with the left button)
It's very simple, but hopefully addictive too. You'll get it when you try it couple of times.
The game runs directly in your browser. I'll probably put a stand-alone version available later at mjkgames.tk, too.
