brawling game

by barry.p.evans - Jam Entry

My game is intended to be a multiplayer beat'em up type game. Sadly i did not finish it but here is what i got.

Controls:

WASD to move and SPACE to jump.

Hold down "H" for a charged attack.

Hold down "H" and "W" for a upward slash.

Press "K" to shoot a projectile.

Press "J" for a light attack.

Press "J" three times in a row for a combo.

Hit and enemy with a light attack while he's in the air to send him flying!

Yes i know there are bugs, sorry.

I think it's fine. But there seems to be a lot of things in progress. Projectiles didn't seem to hit the enemy, just the green squares. And of course there is a lot of bugs. And you know (?).
But it seems pretty interesting, and I like the combos, so props for that.

The attacks were pretty cool, I think you should keep working on it!

I think it could have been a nice game if the multiplayer would have worked

There's definitely some potential here, despite some bugs and stuff the controls feel quite fluid, and I like some of your visual effects like kicking up dust and the screen shake. You could make this into a cool game.

Off to a good start! I really liked the cartoony big splashes for projectile hits. Obviously a work in progress, but I think you should keep going!

Even though it's WIP I can see some really fun potential. I really like the big hits when doing the combos and the exaggerated physics with it!

Strange controls. If you use WSAD, why Spase to jump?

You had some really good mechanics - the physics felt nice, and the screen shake+time freeze when enemies get hit big was a great touch. Obviously, as you said, it's not quite finished but you have a good base to keep working on in the future.

Interesting fighting mechanic! It's a shame you couldn't complete the game! I'd really light to see some more work on the fighting mechanic in the future, Nice Job!

These kind of games have always been awesome. There may be a bug here or there but you got a lot done in 48 hours. Well done!

As a 48 hours game I found it really interesting and fun to play!

This is such a charming little game, I only wish it had more substance to it!

Cool idea, but maybe get the game fully working before adding tons of mechanics.

If you will solve bugs, create multiplayer, add achivements, new guns, hp, it will be good, addictive and funny game!

Even if it was not finished, the whole feedback you get when you send an enemy flying was very polished, it feels really awesome and great, and that is all it takes to play a beat'em up, well, and having a more complete game, but you know that haha Good job on what you've done

Not much to it, but I love the hit effects. Reminds me of smash bros. Keep up the good work!

Dec 11, 2014 @ 6:08am

Man, I wish multiplayer was implemented :(

its interesting some of the polish you have yet the game play is missing. like, it was enjoyable to mash the buttons because there was a lot of good feedback, unfortunately you can't do too much playing. thanks for uploading it though, it really shows you were heading in the right direction. keep working on it! (if you want :P)

Step by step things get. Finish it, sure the end result is good.

Unfinished, but I liked the effects, especially when jumping.

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.
