Ten-2nd Scientist

by whiteravens - Jam Entry

Dr. 2nd's Instruction Door broke down due faulty wires from
rat bites. He has it fixed now, and the instructions should
show all the time. (Now you know why Dr. 2nd hates mice)

1) Get SECOND place!
2) Mouse disabled in the lab (NO MOUSE ALLOWED!).
3) ONLY the Spacebar and Arrow Keys work.
4) If nothing happens on pressing a key, use common sense.
5) If you see a keyboard smash icon, use common sense.
6) Win Ten 2nds. Just do it!
7) 10 Experiments, 10 Seconds, 10 2nds.

Finishing 10 2nds in 10 Experiments of 10 Seconds each.

Enjoy Dr. Ten-2nd's Crazy Experiment Challenges, where your
goal is to capture SECOND PLACE on each of his 10 quick
and crazy challenges in order to win!

The 10 2nds idea was a little too common but you played the idea out well

Great art. Most of them were a good level of challenge also where they would require a few tries but not a frustrating amount of tries.

Thank you for playing everyone :). We didn't have time to hunt for audio anymore, so we went with what we can generate with sfxr. Real life caught up with us, but I'm glad we're able to produce something for this LD round :)

Cute art and good variation of mechanics! The different challenges per level made me play to the end.

I like the style of this game, reminds me of Yoshi Island and I like the fun Wario ware nature to the mini games. Was confused by the controls at first.

I like how you set the goal: to be in the second place (and also the wordplay.)

Aug 27, 2013 @ 10:52am

Very well done. I like the variety of the different tasks. And the graphics, obviously.

Hilarious game! Love the art style, and I'm a huge fan of anything wario-ware like. Also cool how we had the same twist on the theme (get 2nd place) but had completely different games.

Aug 27, 2013 @ 1:23pm

That was really cute! Love the minigames. You guys really did a good job :D

Very clever take on the 10-seconds! It's a different kind of challenge! I also love the art, very playful :)

Great little game! The random challenges were pretty fun! And the difficulty was just right! One of the best I've played so far.

Do you have Java 7? Java 6 will not work.

Very well done! And hot damn what a very unique, playful interpretation of the theme! I only realized it after finishing the my 10th second place haha! Great game! :D

Haha, not bad. Clever way to try to "land" between 1st and 3rd.

Haha you did that 10-2nds + WarioWare like idea. This is so awesome and that's definitely a 5 in both Innovation and Fun!

Very enjoyable minigames, great interpretation of the theme.

Fun mini game collection. Also one of the most humorous entries I've reviewed so far.

Cute artwork, cute idea, nice implementation. Difficulty level a bit much for me, especially on the fart level - it's hard to deliberately come second when you can't complete the task at all. But that's probably just me. Overall, nice one.

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.
