mungo: wrenchlord

by 01010111 - Jam Entry

It is HIGHLY recommended that you use a 360 controller to play, but for scrubs with no gamepad use secret code X+C to play, mouse for minigames, and ESC to exit on Windows :)

the water pressure in Benten is wack! help mungo fix everybody's pipes!

Thanks @rezoner for the awesome splash screen :D

(back button on XBOX360 controller quits on Windows)

Stuff used:

HaxeFlixel (SUPER awesome cross platform Flixel clone)
Genny (YM2612 VST thx superjoebob, thx for showing me magdev)
Chipsounds (10 min to create sound effects? k)

Looks really cool. Couldn't get past the title screen tho. Didn't respond to the keyboard or cursor.

Conormn: It requires a controller.

Very beautiful. The graphics remind me a little of cave story but with a much goofier theme. I'd love to see this as a full game. Of course the first valve took me 4 tries.

super cool colors. I like the wrench boss fights. Please make this work for keyboards (i have an xbox controller, bu tmore people need to play this!)

Cool game but I see no reason a controller is recommended, it plays perfectly fine with a keyboard. Platformers are better played with a keyboard and anyone who says otherwise is WRONG

Wow, really nice game. I played it for quiet some time, most points go to graphics and mood. Wish it was a 48hr compo so I could check source to learn :o

This was really cool! The characters have such a charm to them and the boss system was really original, i liked the look on the giant pirate-crab at the end haha nicely done!

*sigh* Another platformer about a plumber.

Just kidding. Outstanding sound/graphics/polish!

Awesome concept, I especially like the main character's overall design. It's really bubbly and the game is quite fun

Apr 29, 2014 @ 8:36pm

superb graphics and very smooth game play!
though it's very short and not really tied with the theme, the game was very fun to play.

Very fun and challenging platformer. Really like the valve fixing mechanic.

This was great. One of the most polished games i played so far. Interesting mechanics and a very CaveStoryesque graphic and feel (thats a good thing :) ).

An impressive amount of good content in this game. The teleport on the safe zone pipes seems a bit unfair. A bit more challenging jumps would be nice.

A game where you play a plumber who jumps on Sonic's bumper and who looks like a Cave Story character : best concept :D !

Uuu. Fun game for me. Back to consoles :)

That was great, I loved the minigames! :D The art is excellent and the whole thing is polished to the max. Well done! :)

Loved the mini games, and the platforming mechanics felt solid.

Short but sweet, well done.

I really like games like this one. Classic Platformer.
And the pixel art is good.

Pretty good.
I would have liked a check point or two and some way to heal, but I got through it.
Bonus: I just said the sentence "The giant pirate crab is happy." for the first time ever. Congrats.

Everything is highly polished here. The pixel art is very lovely. Well done!

Nice game. The art is cute, the level is well designed, and having multiple minigames is really a plus. Good job

The color palette is really nice, love the aesthetics! Gameplay is really challenging and fun, especially the mini-games. My only issue is when I defeated the second boss, I died from the spikes while going back up and had to start from the beginning. Checkpoints would have been great. Other than that, the game is really well-polished and fun - definitely of the best entries. Good job!

I like it - especially the artwork. The green faucet by the pirate crab seemed to go on forever for me so i couldnt get any further

Awesome game! I loved the pixel-art style, the minigames were really cool too, the amount of content you managed to put in 72h in this game is huge! oO
One of my favorites of course! :D

Really great, maybe a check point system but considering the duration of the game it's not a big deal. Good job !

Whoa, a really solid platformer with tons of charm and unique puzzles? Awesome!

Couldn't beat the safe zone minigame at the boss - as I was using keyb and mouse but still loved every minute of this game!

Oh man. So good.

That was awesome! Beautiful pixel art and cool music. I really liked the crab characters minigames. Although it took me a bit to realize the angry teeth actually indicated the safe zone and not an area to avoid.

Really really amazing game! Great graphics in the style of Cave story, great music and innovative minigames (which are why I understand that this requires a controller)
The only annoyance was that the game resets you to the start once you died, but luckily it only took me two tries.
Please make this into a full game with more analog stick minigames and more pipes!

Managore says ...

Definitely some of the best graphics I've seen so far! The palette, the sprites, the mini-games, all of it looks fantastic. And on top of that you have a really fun, responsive game.

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.

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.
