How My Grandfather Won The War: The Game

After roughly 7 weeks of working on a Flash game from conception to completion, I can now finally show you my entry in the 6th Casual Gameplay Design Competition hosted by jayisgames.com, a game I lovingly refer to as How My Grandfather Won The War.

The game is hosted along with the other entries for the competition, and voting is open to anyone and everyone. If you happen to like my game, I wouldn't mind at all if you helped out and gave a helping vote. So, click below to go to the competition page and check out all of the unique games. My entry features a picture of a red airplane, which is placed randomly in the set of thumbnails.

And because I always make sure to post something visual, here are a few screenshots from the game:

So, in summary, I had a lot of fun making it, and I hope you enjoy playing it as well. If it seems a bit difficult, just keep on trying, and I'm sure you'll make it through. Afterall, the game takes about 5 minutes from start to finish.

Many thanks to my testers for helping me make the game playable (but not necessarily easier).

Oh, and voting is awesome, so go support indie games.

Hey, Its really random but what chords and tuning did you use to get that small 2 chord song on the menu for How my grandfather won the war... that little song has so much inherent beauty!!!

Thanks! I played the guitar parts using Jam Sessions for Nintendo DS, then mastered them on my PC. The chords used were FM7 and A#M7. Hope that helps!

I absolutely love the music for the game. I find that it has been stuck in my head for the past few days. is there a way I can get a loop sample or a simple mp3?
