Yay take that teapot ! x)
Graphics are simple but assumed which make the overall coherent and pleasant.
Fun game to play, it would make a good in between in lan !
Compatibility for azerty keyboards would be cool though :p

I like how each character has their own type of weapons, that was a nice detail. Good job!

@Elemental Zeal Games Studios, @Demy: Use the start script. It informs Java where to look for the Libraries it needs.

Nice! Love those little pre fight animations where the two characters are presented. Also the animations are quite cool and I'm sure it would be pretty fun if there was somebody available to play against me. Only thing I didn't quite get were the special moves, didn't really seem to do a lot, at least for the british guy. There was a british flag but nothing happened, opponent's hp stayed the same and everything.
Anyway, really cool overall, and probably one of the most beautiful cases of bad graphics I've encountered - I mean, it all looks like MS Paint, but it's really nice to look at nonetheless. :D

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. 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.
