Ravage the landscape with 20 million locusts! Consume as much vegetation as you can before your swarm dies of starvation. 

Created for ScoreSpace x 8 Bits to Infinity - Arcade Controls Jam.  

Joystick - Numpad                               One Button - SPACE

An Act of Mercy - There's also a MUTE button. It is an exception to the Arcade Controls Only requirement and its graphic was created outside the jam time, but I decided to include it because the music is sooooo irritating.

A simple idea, but actually quite fun. My highscore is 696. I will try beating that though. Doesn't seem good enough yet. i really like your games lol

Edit: the executable of the game shouldn't be hidden in the directory tree. you could have a shortcut file to the executable at your parent directory, so people don't have to search for the game

Dear Morfy, Thanks for playing Locust Pocus. It isn't my best game but it was an idea I needed to get out of my system.

I am just about ready to publish my most ambitious project yet, Rocktopus, which I made for Stop Motion Jam and which contains your lime green axolotl. The last thing I am hoping to get working before putting it on itch is a shortcut to the executable but I'm having no luck at all. In three years of trying I've never found a way to make a shortcut that works on other computers (relative pathing?). Any advice?

Update: I KNOW HOW TO DO IT NOW! Another itch.io user reached out to teach me. Rocktopus is coming later today and you won't have to go folder digging to play it. :)

NIce, im excited!

The mute button was much appreciated XD. The game is a fun little puzzle game! I nearly wiped the whole board (1,011 pts, beat that streamers :P)
