My first mockup! Isometric tiles!

This game is a fight between ladybugs with an even number of dots and ladybugs with an odd number of dots. Ladybugs can be just as elaborate as humans.

They don't kill each other: they convert their enemies into their own kind, erasing or adding dots with their genetically engineered spray gun. The game stops when all ladybugs are of the same kind.

Some hazards were planned such as carnivorous plants. Time ran short. No AA, no dithering, no refining. Time ran very short.

It has serious flaws though, mostly the leaves are boring and very flat looking (I have to practice drawing leaves), and there should be hints of something in the far back (was rushed). Colors might be too saturated too.

I hope to find the time to update someday. Sigh.

This was my favorite of the challange entries, should have gotten first and I'm surprised it didn't get on top 3. This is great 5/5!

Very nice and simple :) the only thing that could of improved it a bit more would be diff types of leaves, they seem to be all c+p and recolored

Thanks guys!

@ jeremy: hope to fix it after the vote. The dice are bug counters for the 2 parties. I didn't find a better graphic idea to say 'even' and 'odd' ! =)

 Pity you couldn't AA, it suffers a little from the jaggies. Very cute ladybirds, I may have missed something but I don't see why the dice are there >.>
