Boffin Battle

by ClocktowerGames - Jam Entry

Boffin Battle (featuring Professor Boffin and Professor Boffin) is the story of Professor Boffin and Professor Boffin, Mad Scientists from two dimensions.

Both Boffins (Boffinses? Boffi?) used their CRAZY science to create a teleporter. However in a bizarre incident the Boffins teleporters got connected and they're creating... Slimes?!

These inter-dimensional slimes cannot be killed; Once they perish in your dimension, they just move to the next dimension (and back again)!

The Boffins must protect their power generator, for surely the Boffin whose generator fails shall perish!! Unfortunately for Professor Boffin, all he has to defend the generator is the laboratory broom, and a vial of something very cold and blue...

Protect your generator, Professor Boffin, your life depends on it.

Game Requires:
Another Boffin and Two Controllers
(Requires 2 players)

I'm on OSX, and I'm not sure the buttons were mapped right. Only Jump worked for me.

I'd check out

Also there's a great open source option for unity here
I've used InControl and it's pretty great. Definitely recommended.

I'm holding off rating this because of the control issues. However, it looks like a neat idea! :D

It's a shame I don't have the means to play this. :(

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.
