‚ÄčI love the concept. Kindof a pikmin style feel to it. The graphics are cute, expeciallly swinging that little hand. It was really easy after i figured out what to do. Nice!

Nice use of the shapeshifter theme.

Interesting idea, though the enemies felt a little weak. Took me a while to realise how to make the guy jump too. Nice graphics, the shapeshift animations were lovely!

A fun quick game when you figure it out, good game.

Good game idea, but could use a bit more content/features.

A nice and simple game! The 'follower' idea is good (and I liked the trap at the start). I think if you were to build on this game, it'd be nice if the forms had more unique functions - for example, maybe one form could blow the character upwards, one could create a shielded area around the McGuffin, etc.

I just finished it! Really cool transformation and great level design! Well done!

i like the idea of having the multiple tools and guiding the guy - it was a little too easy after i figured it out - more levels would have been cool

Great game! It seems we have kind of same idea about shapeshifting tools :D

Interesting little game.
Perhaps a bit easy, since you can just go clear all obstacles/enemies before letting out your follower.
Might be better if you can't phase through walls, or if the follower is always walking forward so you have some kind of urgency.

I liked the art style on the mcguffin, looks very smooth animation, however you might want to keep all assets at similar level of art detail, otherwise it looks very visually noisy.

Music/sound effects would be good.

You control a ... cursor which may transform into hand/axe/hammer... to help the little hero advance in the dungeon full of traps

Pretty solid idea here, it just needs more levels, and more distinctive transformations. Reminds me of the Nitrome game 'Enemy 585'

Really fun compo entry, I especially loved the theme interpretation, the transformations are really nice. I enjoyed it and played until I finish it, which proves this game is fun to play.

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.
