Drug Hunt

by kill0u - Jam Entry

/!\ Warnings:
- This game was developped at 60 FPS and may not be playable on slow computers. Sorry, I noticed too late that HaxePunk had set the default fps to 60, and couldn't modify it any more without breaking the minigames.
- This game may potentially trigger seizures for people with photosensitive epilepsy.

- The gameplay is meant to be minimalist: you can only use one action (triggered by ENTER or SPACE).
- I added a sound ON/OFF toggle with M key.


In Drug Hunt, you are a junkie.
Your usual drug dealer will give you your favorite drug (or another one.. he's too high anyway). Take it, and here comes your trip!

You'll have to find out the adequate moment to use the only action your reduced brain could trigger, and get out of your trip before the overdose.

CODE: kill0u | DESIGN: Gnux | MUSIC: LeoL

Can we have the rules please :p

kill0u says ...
Apr 30, 2013 @ 2:52am

Rules ? What rules ? Just get high :D
(and use your only action when you feel it's needed -- the lack of explanations is voluntary)

Really nice ! I loved the audio and the concept.

You could add more drugs if you had the time but it's fun. It took me at least 30 seconds to understand what to do :P.

Okay I get It :D

Awesome game :p

Awesome design, but the animation lacked something.
Loved the colours anyway.

I won all the drugs!

Apr 30, 2013 @ 8:12am

Nice take on the Wario Ware concept, but you know... drugging it up. The music and sound effects were really neat, which helped.

I think the thing that surprised me most about this entry was just how quickly I started to "get it." The little mini games are so lacking in any kind of context, and there's so little to go on that it's kind of miraculous that the human brain can pick anything out of that mess at all.

Great job!

KillOu, ton jeu déchire. ^^

Il n'y a pas d'instruction, pas de texte, mais on est pris dedans tout de suite. C'est un tourbillon de folie. De plus, meme si je n'ai pas compris tous les mini-jeux, ils sont plus fou les uns que les autres.

C'est un jeu digne du sujet de ce 26 éme LD. Félicitations !!

PS : t'as pris lesquel durant le LD ? :P

This seems too realistic for me, my brain's still playing, colors stuck on the eyes.
Audio work is just awesome, 5 stars.

Génial \o/
A game full of madness, with good sound.

namuol says ...
Apr 30, 2013 @ 11:10am


Love the fucked-up-everything about this (especially the sound!). Gameplay is unclear until you experiment, but once you get the hang of it, it's a solid minigame-spree. <3

Only real complaint is that it's frustratingly difficult to choose what drug you want to take.

"Only real complaint is that it's frustratingly difficult to choose what drug you want to take." That's the concept, you're too high to make a clear decision!

Apr 30, 2013 @ 2:00pm

Very interesting idea, and very good presentation. Sound is some of the best I've heard, but it stopped playing at a certain point. A bug?

xdegtyarev says ...
Apr 30, 2013 @ 3:29pm

After I figured out how to play its really fun! Could not win balancing bad/good meter at the middle for some time. More minigames would make this game less repeatable. Otherwise loved it!

Pretty good, I don't actually know what to rate down :L

COOL GAME. was very different from the other entries. kudos for that!

sparkleswirl says ...
May 1, 2013 @ 7:19am

I don't know if this is what being on drugs is like so I can't speak to the realism in this game, but as a collection of timing / minigames it's superb. It's just so obvious when you should press space! Especially when potato appears.

I guess the best entry I tested so far. Fits perfectly with the theme, the ambiance is awesome and I'm in love with this epilectic graphic design well served by the crazy sounds.

allinlabs says ...
May 1, 2013 @ 4:14pm

Sooooo good :D It reminds me when I... hm, wait, no, forget about that...
No source ? Too bad, I would have loved see how you did the screen perturbations on the splash screen.

kill0u says ...
May 1, 2013 @ 4:37pm

Oh, I forgot to post the sources. The splash screen is a video actually :D

TriBeard says ...
May 1, 2013 @ 11:02pm

Hahah, this was great! I didn't get it at first, but after a few failed attempts I picked up. Audio and visuals were both perfect.

Ariake81 says ...
May 1, 2013 @ 11:09pm

help!... well that was intense! really enjoyed but would benefit from some more games and more accuracy on correct hit. Also seemed to get the same couple of games repeatedly. Great audio visual experience though!

onzephyr says ...
May 2, 2013 @ 4:06am

Great game. Looks good. audio is great and playing it oddly put me in a zoned out state . So what's left to say well done.

chowdy says ...
May 2, 2013 @ 10:32am

I really enjoyed playing this. The visuals are great, and it was a lot of fun once I figured out WTF was going on.

deepnight says ...
May 2, 2013 @ 8:29pm

Totally SICK °_°
I never took any ecstasy, but now I know what it feels like :)

The music is especially adding a lot to the mood!

nSun says ...
May 2, 2013 @ 11:59pm

I'm torn between two opinions, because I'm not comfortable with the way the subject is treated : To present experinece drug as a "trip or die" game. In a sense, this is a very minimalist view. So it would certainly be consistent with the context of LD.
I love the realization in terms of graphics, animation, music and presentation. On fun and humor, I preferred to abstain from voting.

May 3, 2013 @ 1:34am

Pretty awesome. Simple timing/reaction. Great visuals, mood and audio. I don't do drugs but this is my impression of them :) Funny and well polished.

Ragzouken says ...
May 3, 2013 @ 9:05am

Looks fantastic!

neurochems says ...
May 4, 2013 @ 2:06am

One of my favourites. Aesthetic is great, and the speed changes make the repetition moot. Great job!

Catman says ...
May 4, 2013 @ 8:55am

Too me a while to understand, but it was fun after that! I enjoyed the music and the graphics, really weird! :D

bummzack says ...
May 4, 2013 @ 1:25pm

Great. Kinda cool to discover each "mini-level" (some are really hard). The graphics are psychedelically awesome :)

Zemmi says ...
May 4, 2013 @ 7:02pm

That was awesome, survived shrooms and blow but the pills are to hardcore for me. Sound was the best I've heard so far and figuring out the mini-games was really intuitive after I got one. Thumbs up, high five, good job.

Got 408. Not sure if that's ok. xD
It's really fun.

kill0u says ...
May 8, 2013 @ 7:07pm

@Make A Game: hmm I did ~500.000 last time so I guess it's not much :D

The points earned in each mini-game depend on :
- The ongoing combo. This is the main point here.
- The time. The faster you are, the more points you get.
You get an additional bonus (2000 points if I remember well) when you finish a drug.

kill0u says ...
May 8, 2013 @ 7:08pm

Oh, and potatoes are harder to get, but they give 42.666 bonus points ;)

May 8, 2013 @ 9:06pm

I feel strange now... Oo

Not as fun as the real thing but still a great game.

vilya says ...
May 9, 2013 @ 1:50am

Brilliant! Still haven't quite figured out how to tell when to hit space yet, but it's fun & really well made. The sound was a real highlight too!

ethankennerly says ...
May 9, 2013 @ 5:03am

The line alignment and flower alignment and animations to press SPACE on time gripped my attention. The flashing perturbed me. If you continue to develop this, have you considered attending to the rhythm between trial transitions?

Make A Game says ...
May 10, 2013 @ 12:09am

@kill0u after your explanation it all made sense, now I'm tripping a lot better. =D

EggDestroyer says ...
May 11, 2013 @ 11:28am

75444 pts ! Some mini-games are unforgiving and way harder so it seems a bit unfair (mushroom-words-potato thingie is almost impossible), and sometimes it's hard to figure out when to act (pill-drug games mostly).
Apart from that (polish thingies), this is BY FAR the most fucked up entry I've played so far, yet I enjoyed it a lot, as you managed to throw insane things on my face yet kept me entertained for several games. Really an excellent job here guys :D

kill0u says ...
May 11, 2013 @ 12:56pm

Thanks :)

For the words minigame, it is meant to be very difficult, as it gives a great bonus (42.666 points) and is related to potatoes (subtheme) ;)
I agree for some pill-drug games though =/

Madball says ...
May 11, 2013 @ 1:02pm

It was very fun. It`s pure gameplay, nothing else. However, some minigames are harder than others (the potato one, for example). Ended with 300246 score.
Sometimes it`s hard to tell if the game slowed down or it`s lagging.
And I feel a bit dizzy.

rezoner says ...
May 11, 2013 @ 2:50pm

Soo.... Wario Ware for drug addicts? You ain't need to be epileptic to get seizures from this one... I am freaking love it!

May 11, 2013 @ 3:33pm

Nice, it feels like it could be a great hidden mini-game in Hotline Miami

PsenFilip says ...
May 11, 2013 @ 4:06pm

Sweet! I like the "What are you buying?" type of vendor.
I like the minigames and some of them are pretty tricky.
Graphics are pretty funky and it really fits your game. Same for the sfx. Very good mood on there. Couple minutes after playing I can still feel the effects. Haha!

Nice little trip to the LSD universe!

Gnux says ...
May 11, 2013 @ 4:16pm

Wow thanks SecondDimension! That's the best comment ever!

May 11, 2013 @ 4:40pm

Loved the trippy aesthetics. :D

euwaku says ...
May 11, 2013 @ 6:14pm

WarioWare with pot option... hum interesting!

May 11, 2013 @ 7:42pm

Pretty good game. I like the set-up, and the graphics and audio are good, but the gameplay itself didn't hold my attention for that long. Probably a taste thing. Nevertheless, a solid entry.


Very nice way to bring in the potato theme. A point off for misspelling "potato", though. (Or maybe that was the drugs' fault.)

kill0u says ...
May 11, 2013 @ 7:58pm

Those damn drugs, uh? ;)

Btw, this game kinda fits your avatar :D

May 11, 2013 @ 8:33pm

Heh, I only noticed the perfection of my avatar for this game after posting.

Now, to drop a liter of Adrenochrome and play this again...

May 11, 2013 @ 8:39pm

Enjoyed this minigame compilation. The lack of instructions actually helped the mood of this game, which I appreciate.

And somehow, I managed to play this game completely straight and seriously. Don't ask me how I did it!

May 14, 2013 @ 7:03am

60,000 points! woo! lol, I really liked it

May 14, 2013 @ 7:32am

cool game

dalbinblue says ...
May 19, 2013 @ 7:32pm

This game oozes style, the sound work is amazing, and while some of the puzzles are really difficult to follow, it helps to add tension to the game and get you worked up in just the right way. The puzzles do get repetitive, and I would suggest variations on each individual one (where for a given scene you didn't have to press action at the same point each time) as it would make player think more before acting.
