Octopus !

by Monoquartz - 48 Hour Compo Entry

Since the beginning, men reigned on the ocean. But now, it's time for the underwater wildlife to revenge from this evil master. So Stacato, a young octopus decided to fight those boats !
Arrow keys to move. S to open and close the shop. Spacebar to activate shield (10 secondes delay between 2 uses).
Have fun ! The have only 8 waves due to Scratch's memory lacks.
You need to shot several time boats to explode them. But you have some upgrades in the Shop which help you to jump higher, or make more damage or...
(For information, healthbar on the top is the octopus's life, and the hull of the boat hurt you.)

Gameplay was nice, but unfortunately the platform does mean that you had to sacrifice a lot in terms of overall quality of the game. =l

Wasn't too sure what I was meant to be doing - was the top bar meant to represent the boats health as I got it down on a number of occasions but nothing seemed to be happening :( I liked the visual representation of the game and the audio.

Nice idea, but at first I don't know what I must do, but I get it ;)

I like the art and music, and the controls felt pretty good. But I wasn't at all clear on whether I was supposed to be ramming the boats from below or jumping on top of them, or how to use the shield.

Also I couldn't tell how the resources in the top right, the icons you collect, and the prices in the shop related...

I really liked the game but the controls worked against it, constantly tapping Up to jump over the water got tiresome quickly. Though everyone is praising them, so I don't know if I got a bug or something.

Neat game, Im not exactly sure how I was supposed to be attacking the boats, I jumped at them from underneath but I'm not sure what that was doing. The art is cute though.

IMPORTANT NOTE: If you want to place in the final results, you NEED votes. The easiest way to get votes is by rating other games. Judging lasts for 3 weeks following the end of Ludum Dare. For best effect, rate 20 games as soon as possible. Rating more games is encouraged.


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.
