I found it easier to win only using two buttons.

The kung fu theme works well, and I could imagine it working well with more enemies.

Seriously, why his punches are so strong?

Rock-paper-scissors-kung-fu! Very nice little game.

Haha, I found it easier to win with two buttons also, so there's probably something to that. Fun little game, but not much replay value.

Very nice, I also tried to use a rock paper scissors combat mechanic but failed miserably because I made it too cryptic. Nice job!

Seriously fun game. Took a while to catch on - but then BAM I won.

Nice spin on rock-paper-scissors gameplay. I had trouble remembering which keys to use though.

Nifty. It was like playing rock-paper-scissors in real time to settle a violent dispute. I'll have to try this the next time I'm jumped in an alley. Good work!

Woha, nice touch in rock-paper-scissor game! It was very hard at start, but after a while you can actually get how to be competitive!

hahahaha.. That is a cool neat idea. Didn't see that coming out of something we are so familiar.

Nice game. =]

I liked how you implemented the jan-ken-po rules; it made sense to me. Like, a fist really breaks a finger, and it makes sense that a palm can stop a fist.

This is quite cool! Has a rhythm game feel to it which I like. First win with only two keys but then made some effort to beat the enemy with 3 keys. Very satisfying!

May 2, 2013 @ 7:07am

Really hard! But clever idea. Maybe if it was a little slower to start with, players could jump on the learning curve a little faster.

Guys thanks for playing my game and leave the comments. This game was made less than 10 hours (including learning GameMaker from the ground up) and I am satisfied with its simplicity. I know I made it too hard at the beginning, but I don't have time to polish it. So hope everyone was able to master the mechanism and beat the game after some practice.

@raincole: I thought GameMaker could create mac application easily however I don't know I must be a registered Apple developer to do so until I finished the game. What a shame.

@GFM: This is exactly what I think! Thanks!

Such a cool idea for a game!

This is a great idea for this compo! Very well done!

Took a few attempts to get a hang of the dynamic between the three, but once I did it was enjoyable enough. Fun little game, especially considering how quickly you put it together!

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.
