Squish

by mailman105 - Jam Entry

How to play: Press the "A" and "D" keys to move, and space to jump. You must jump onto the platforms to get apples for the Minis. Bring the apples to their castle to get points. Don't SQUISH them! if you want new randomized platforms, then reopen the game.

Backstory: The Minis were on the brink of starvation when the gods sent them a magical giant to get them their food. They Minis, however, are a fickle race who will kill anyone who harms them.

You might consider using the free Java hosting at http://StaticVoidGames.com. I'm the creator of the site, but I think it beats dropbox.

Opens up as a 0x0 window in Linux x64 with Sun-Java (Slackware 13.37). Using Xfce.

Runs pretty fast on OSX, making it almost unplayable.

It occurs to me that I may not have checked how the framerate was (when we tested it) and left the max framerate at 1000... which may be a little high.

Cool little game, one annoying bug though was that if i was jumping up and collided with a mini it was still instant gameover. Nice music in the background but could do with some slowing down of the minis. possibly fraerate related. Nonetheless, a good entry into LD.

Funny and fun. I found it a bit buggy in that I couldn't get to one of the apples and another apple wouldn't allow me to pick it up when I ran over it. It was a cool concept, though.

I would also suggest making it only squish the mini dudes when you're jumping down. I kill a bunch of them when jumping up and ended up losing for that.

It opened for me, but then it didn't do anything... I tried pressing several keys and clicking all over the screen.
I'm on an iMac.

Nice idea, though it could use a few refinements. the music was catchy.
