by AnaglyphCoding - Jam Entry

You are a nuclear scientist testing the properties of a new radioactive isotope name "Apothekium". When you realise that the radiation causes dangerous side effects in nearby animals, you are given the mission to remove the apothekium from every room in your lab as soon as possible!

PLEASE NOTE: I only had around 12 hours to work on this game. I only went for the Jam entry to have 2 hours extra time. The reason I had such little time is due to the fact that I have important exams coming up and I had to balance time between those and this. So, don't feel like you need to increase my score because of this as I don't expect you to, I just want you to take into consideration that this game definitely won't reach any Jam standards.

I also worked alone on this game and all assets were made by me within the 3 days.

Have fun!

This game reminded me of an old DOS game that is escaping me, game play and graphics felt right and kept my interest for a bit.

I only have one complaint with this game the level ending sound is much louder than the other sound effects and caught me off guard.

The graphics and gameplay was pretty good. You might wanna keep game and source in seperate links for people with slow internet speeds who just wanna play. Not a problem for me but still :). Anyways good job on the game! :)

Really not bad for a 12h game!

Interesting idea, but the game is still "only" a platform-game with something different. I would have preferred something different that is played like a platform-game. Did I lose you?

I would have liked a more strategic aspect. Right now the game is just : rush to get the box then the Apothekium and then the exit. I would have preferred a game where you have to avoid the radiations, scare the animals so they don't get radiations, then grab the box or don't if you don't have time and prefer to use that time to distract the animals... I don't know, I felt the game could have been less main-stream.

There are some display problems when the animals have mutated (or it's normal?), but the graphics are more than okay. They are sound effects, but they are unbalanced and there is no music, so I don't really know what to say.

I hope you'll have more time for your next Jam, seeing what you did in 12h makes me expect a lot for a full 72h!

Respect for doing it with such little time. I like the idea of a level builder!

Freaky radiating animals! :D
Interesting mechanic - the difficulty per level seems to be a bit haphazard maybe. An extra way to interact would have been cool. (temporary shield orsuch?)

the game is amazing for only 12h! I hope you work full-time next LD! :)

Mini Submission FAQ

TEAMS: Teams entering the Jam should pick a single representative to submit your game, or create a team specific account you can share. We currently do not support Team Voting, but sharing an account and together playing and rating games is acceptable.

CAN I ENTER BOTH EVENTS?: You should pick 1 event, whichever you think it’ll do better in. If the idea is strong, and everything plays well enough, you can go Compo. If you’re a perfectionist, and would prefer people to play a more polished game, do the Jam. Historically, more games are entered in the Compo, but with more people and more time, Jam games have the potential to be better (that doesn’t mean they are). Many solo participants do enter the Jam.

If you made 2 games, unfortunately, the website doesn’t support multiple submissions per user. To submit your 2nd game, you will have to make a 2nd account. Only do this if you made 2 games. Alternatively, if one game is better than the other, then consider just entering the better game.

CAN I KEEP WORKING UNTIL THE DEADLINE?: Yes! Immediately after the 48 or 72 hours, we do something called Submission Hour. As the name suggests, it’s an extra hour for you to package, upload, and submit your games. If there were catastrophic issues trying submitting your game, or you misunderstood how submissions work, that’s okay. It happens. We’re flexible. If you need advice, check with the folks on IRC. If you need an admin, get in touch.

CAN I KEEP WORKING ON MY GAME?: Oh definitely! You should! But for the sake of judging, keep the Compo or Jam version around. You can include a link to the Post-Compo/Post-Jam version of your game on your games page, but sure your main links are the original version.

PORTS: Ports to other platforms can be done after the deadline. That said, the sooner you finish your port, the sooner people can play your game, improving your chances of placing in the final results. For best results, provide a Web version of your game, or a Windows version with no dependencies. Also be sure to rate at least 20 games to improve your visibility (Coolness).

MY GAME CRASHES, IS UNBEATABLE, OR I MADE A TYPO: We allow you to fix crashes, win condition, or tiny bugs after the deadline. In a sense, this is like “porting” to support more players. We leave this open to interpretation, but generally speaking your game should be identical to the game you submitted. No new features, just fixing mistakes you should have caught had you been better rested.

MY GAME DOESN’T SHOW UP: If you can’t find your game, it’s usually because the URL to your downloads are missing ‘http://‘. Fix your URLs ( and you will show up. Alternatively, if you just posted it, wait a minute. The cache may not have refreshed yet.

NOT LOGGED IN?: If you get a message about not being logged in, even though you are, it’s because your web browser cached the non-logged in page. You can fix this by either refreshing your cache or clearing your cache. CTRL+F5 in many browsers. Chrome is a bit more work. Press F12 to enable Developer Mode, then you can right click on the refresh button and select “Empty Cache and Hard Reload”. This option is unavailable if you are not in Developer Mode.
