Gladarena

by Moist - Jam Entry

A very raw prototype of a gladiator arena fightning game. Didn't have time to give it proper treatment but I'm posting it anyway.

Nice game, I can see myself playing a fleshed out version of this in the future

Pretty decent. The controls were satisfying, and the feedback when attacking was good.

Would have liked to have seen a health indicator of some form, as well as perhaps a count-up timer and/or kill count in order to measure success from one game to the next.

Short and pretty fun, but it really needs some form of indication as to whether you're taking damage. I would just be fighting and suddenly I'm dead, with no warning. If you added an HUD and added more of a defined goal it would be pretty good.

Hey, this is pretty cool! I hope you can develop it into something fuller in the future! :) There's not really much to talk about, but it has an odd charm to it. Nice work!

Very cute, it made me giggle. Reminded me of the old Madness flash games. Would be interesting to see it more polished.

This was pretty fun! What you got in the game works pretty well and was enjoyable to play. I like the art style a lot and I also liked the different weapon attack speeds. Good job on having a decent AI as well, it seemed like some of them tried to flank me instead of all just clumping up to attack. I think the next major additions could include ways to dodge attacks like dashing or rolling.Currently theres not a good way to evade the enemy since they seem to be about as fast as you are.

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 (http://mysite.com/mygame.zip) and you will show up. Alternatively, if you just posted it, wait a minute. The cache may not have refreshed yet.

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.
