Psycho German Shepherd

by FlashRocks - Jam Entry

The character is actually modeled after my puppy ;)

Controls should be self-explanatory: Space to shoot, arrows to move, "r" to reload.

This was a team collab:
-FlashRocks, programming, design, sound FX (generated by cfxr)
-Matthew Petry (fire219), Art, design

Interesting. I think this would have worked better if the scale was smaller - zoomed up the way it was in this game made the graphics suffer more than they needed to.

Do you mean just make the enemies themselves smaller?

I had fun playing it for a few minutes.
I think a taller screen would help. Then you would have more time to move and aim. As it is now it's almost too late to do anything by the time the enemies appear on screen.

I thought the dog was a mongoose (because of the snakes)...

There's something insane about this game I really like. The wall of random creatures, the strange English. Honestly my favorite so far.

Could use a little more polish. The difficulty scaling was a bit lacking. Needs some music. Aliens wouldn't hurt.

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.
