Place a variety of traps to kill an never ending procession of Beer Gnomes. "Green" Gnomes destroy the plant trap. "Blue" gnomes destroy the buzz saw traps. "White" gnomes destroy the spike pit traps. You can plant up to 3 bombs, be aware that you need to set a trigger for the bombs to be detonated. You can use the "Shoop-a-loop" monster to destroy Gnomes on an angle. The catapults are just fun.

Enjoyable, but could use a little polish

Really liked your approach to sound, very funny. Basic gameplay was solid and enjoyable.

Some ideas for improvement:

I spend a lot of time waiting for the gnomes to walk through once I have figured out a strategy for killing them. Would be nice to have a fast-forward button.

Also, would be nice to color-code the traps to make it easier to remember which trap is destroyed by which gnome.

Also, would like to be able to replay a failed level without going back to the start.

Staying in Contact.

Hey guys!

I'm not exactly sure if everyone will get this, but if you guys (guys being the team) could contact me so I can get your information, that'd be great. I'd like to keep working on this game.
