Nut Kick

by IrfanFox - Jam Entry

I was trying to program an AI and this is the result. This is more of an experiment than a game but it does have an ending.

Controls: Arrow keys, X (punch), C (kick)

The style and setting reminded me a lot of Urban Champion for NES (http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Urban_Champion), do you know that game? Sadly, the AI was rather weak here and could be defeated by button mashing. Multiplayer would have been nice.

As @free_napalm said, this reminds a lot to Urban Champion... good times, good times. Also, the ending sequence made me laugh for real.

One little issue, your character can exit the screen if you go left.

@free_napalm I agree that the AI is very weak. Before this, I only wrote simple AI. This is the most advanced AI I wrote so far. Haha.. I hope I will do better next time. @Dohan You're right. I should add boundaries. The character can exit the screen not only if you go left, but right and bottom as well.

Thank you very much for your opinions everyone. I really appreciate them.

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.

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.

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 about 20 games to improve your visibility.

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 (http://mysite.com/mygame.zip) and you will show up.

MY GAME CRASHES, IS UNBEATABLE, OR I MADE A TYPO: We allow you to fix crash or win condition bugs after the deadline (in a sense, like “porting” to support more players). We also allow “typo” bugs. I.e. A true that should have been a false, a word that should have been a different word, very tiny changes that you would have caught if you had more sleep. We leave this open to interpretation, but generally speaking your game should be identical to the game you submitted. No new features, just things you messed up last minute. Typos.
