Super job good Jamster! I love the audio and the surrealist graphics. You've got everything that full game needs - humor, action, title screen, easy to understand. Polish this some more and you've got a fine game on your hands. +1 interents

Those pixel monsters are legitimately frightening, lol. All twitchy and glowing. Enjoyed blastin'em up, fun game! Maybe too many health packs though, at one point I had an absurd amount of health.

Sometimes weapons would spawn out of reach and I had usually no worries for health. But good on you anyway!

But really though, great game! Very addictive and fun. The graphics where not the best but they where very interesting and colorful. The sound was also nice.

Great job!

Great entry! I loved the music and quirky graphics! The game is really fun and makes you play a lot more than you would have expected. 4/5!

Kind of funny, died when I ran out of ammo. Health seems to never be an issue.

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 ( 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.
