Carnage

by Bygmalion - Jam Entry

A portal from hell has open in your world, fight all the demons.

You get points for killing monsters, the bigger the monster, the more points you'll get,
But also from orbs, but here's the catch: the more enemies on screen, the more points you'll get from these orbs.

If you have enough points you enter a frenzy that makes you invincible.

Personal record:76500

Try to beat it, if you can.

-CONTROLS-

WASD to move/aim
space to jump
P to shoot
esc to pause the game

You can play with a Xbox controller (you even got the vibration)

D-pad to move
A to jump
X to shoot
start to pause the game

team: only me

If get the error xinput.dll not found, press ignore and the game will launch.

Check the download link or reupload your file, because now it's 404.

I am such an idiot... I forgot to set the upload on "public". Sorry for the inconvenience.

Interesting graphics :)

Haha it's like a trippy Super crate box! Awesome :)

I Like that you allow bullets to wrap around the screen as well as the characters. Allowing for a bit more strategy :D

The craziness in this entry is inspiring.

Thanks.

Needing to install is a bit odd - usually Gamemaker games can be run straight from a .exe or .zip file.

Keyboard controls are weird, they seem to be designed for people with three hands. It requires WASD, Space, P, and Enter to restart the game - and it's very hard to find a place for my hands where I can hit all of those comfortably.

The graphics are very good. Trippy without being unreadable, and you stick to a style without it becoming repetitive.

Thanks for all the compliments about the graphics, it took a lot of time and it's probably the reason why there is no music.
@snowyowl I don't understand why it has to install either,I'll look into it and if I can make it run from an .exe I'll reupoad. Sorry for the control scheme, after I coded gamepad support I started testing only with the gamepad, so I didn't rethink the keyboard input.

Ok, the upload is fixed, it's now a simple .exe

Super Crate Box is very strong in this one.

Nice look, not trying for much innovation but achieves what it sets out to be. Feels tight, collisions nice and smooth. Good work!

Dec 12, 2014 @ 3:06pm

On a side note, i died to the first ghost because it wasn't clear that it was an enemy.

Really great color scheme on the graphics and the shadow animation effect on the platforms really made it look funky in a good way! Had fun playing this, well done!

Fun game, good job.

Dec 14, 2014 @ 5:24pm

kinda weird and crazy art style. Overall fun, but a bit hard to control. Also, sadly it did not find my controller.

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.
