Werewolves in town

This is the videogame I made in Scratch to practise irregular verbs. I hope you like it.

Instructions:

A wizard has turned two people into werewolves in the town! They attack at night. They are not very clever, because sometimes they waste time attacking each other. The good people in town suspect from everybody. As werewolves forget the things they had learnt in their previous life, the citizens will check that you are not a werewolf, asking you some questions.

If you choose to be a good citizen, you'll be the judge. You'll only decide who is to be executed if you always answer correctly. If you do so, you'll be protected and there will be no way to kill you. But if you make one mistake, you'll stop working as a judge. Executions will be decided by the people and your chances to be chosen will increase with your mistakes.

If you choose to be a wolf, you can be executed by the crowd from the very first moment. Or you may be in love with anyone in town and die when your lover dies. The more mistakes you make, the more chances you'll have to be killed.



Remember:
  • If you are the werewolf, your goal is to kill every innocent citizen. 
  • If you are the judge, you want to kill all the werewolves.
  • Pay attention to what every character says, specially at night. That will help you make your best choice. 
  • If the ambulance is working, good people will thank the doctor for saving them. 
  • If the evil creatures attack each other, they won't die, but they'll complain about it.
  • The citizens will always suspect you are a werewolf. If you answer their questions wrong, your chances of being executed will increase. 
  • Lovers will die if their couple dies (and love is blind). 
  • The soldier is dangerous and will execute anyone if killed.
  • The wizard's final spell can cause great misery! 

If you like my version, I'm sure you'll also enjoy the table game that inspired this project.

Have fun!
