The Unexpected Adventures Of Doctor Supertronic Flying Machine.

by Shampop - Jam Entry

MAJ : People of the Earth ! We have a good new for everyone ! After some comment requesting us to, the game is now able on Kongregate, direct on your browser ! Much better, for sure. Have fun !

You're a fly, but you probably already noticed it.
You're in a trash, and you have to survive.

The game is cruel, but you're a fly, so you can't complain.
It's made in 12 hours, because we didn't had a weekend for the game, but you're a fly, so you don't care.

Have fun (you're a fly BUT you can have fun :D )
Try it with a friend, it's better (he/she will be a fly).

(There are bugs (beeing a fly, you're one), but you're a fly, so you can't complain).


You should read the ReadMe.txt to know how to play.
(use left/right, space to jump, M to mute and Shift to restart)
(put a controller to add a player, take it out and restart to play solo again)


The game was made by three of us, we had a lot of fun doing this, hope you had as much as we did :D

Pretty good, man!
Music is awesome
But my fly is dying after just touching objects :c And sometimes refuse to jump

It was a bit of a mission to download and unpack everything and in the end I couldn't get the game to work :(

You should put it as "embed" since your game is html, will be easier to play

That was just great! I found activating a buzzing track in music with jumping just hilarious! Also cute and kinda hopeless. But very fun.

You should host the game on your website or on here. I had to run a local server with python to even play the game. I like the music and the graphics. The controls sometimes didn't really work.

Argh. I'm sorry, but I'm already using Safari as a secondary because Chrome, my first choice, doesn't like unity web player... Not about to download a third browser. Sorry man.

I like the graphics and sound, especially when you jump. Sometimes the fly won't... fly, and you get squashed when touching things at random.

Awesome graphics and music! The controls are a bit clunky, but that also fits the fly-theme.

Nice bgm and sfx, it's quite fun. Also I want to say fly is not that weak, it's annoying and I really want to squeeze it by bare hand. 3:)

Pretty funny game! Definitely a game with high "just one more time"-factor. Had some laughs when books came flying at me due to hitting something on the other side of the room :D

I like the game, it's audio and graphics. But it is a bit too buggy to be able to be enjoyed properly. Still though, for 12h it's a good job.

Nice one, I would like to be able to restart the game after I die though :P

You can, with the "maj" (shift) key :D

I really liked how the fly chants to the song.

Great effort in 12 hours. Graphics and sound were quality.

It was a bit buggy (shift didn't restart the game for me always) and the kongregate adverts were pretty annoying. Also jump doesn't work when you were touching things to the left or right of you.

Awesome game ! I really loved it ! Hard and fun to die. I would play on mobile.

I really like the way you did the fly sound. Pretty neat idea. It's annoying, though, that sometimes I die and I don't know why.

Nice fly sound feature! Awesome!
But controls feel glitchy

Nice little game! It's really well made for something done in 12 hours. The physics is very fun.

Nice music! I like how it changes when you jump :D Graphics are really cool, even when turning around, they keep good shape. Great work!

This is a fun game even though it's difficult. I do find it annoying sometimes I can't jump when the fly is next to an object and flying into an object can cause death. I do like the music changing in respond to player actions and adding physics to falling objects to avoid.

I like the idea, and the graphics are well-done, but I found the gameplay to be a mixture of random and buggy to a point of nigh-unplayability. My troubles started with inaccurate help (my jump was up and not space as said in the description), then progressed to random objects falling on me and deaths on collision with objects that had already landed. The buzzing sounds when the fly jumps are amazing though.

Really fun. I liked what you did with the music playing as the fly's buzzing. You should really polish the game, get rid of the (software) bugs and make a post-compo version.

Dec 23, 2014 @ 6:22pm

Good job!

This was an awesome game, but didn't really apply to the theme. Loved the different objects coming in (a toaster at one point??? hahaha). I thought the music and fly noises were wonderful. However, it was really slow. It took five minutes to get to 20 things on the screen and then my fly got randomly squished on nothing.

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.
