Autobahn Monster

by Indyo - Compo Entry

My crappy 48h game made with typescript and Phaser in order to allow comfortable playing inside the browser.

You play a frustrated business man driving home.
Braking too much shooting too much lasers or crashing into cars makes him go mad so you better take care.
The more his rage level increases the more he turns into a furious monster until he finally blows up.

The goal is to finish the level and keep the driver calm by not crashing and breaking too much.

Controls (also explained on the external site):
'left' / 'right' - Switch lane.
'down' - Break. Adds rage.
'space' - Shoot lasers to destroy the super small toy-like cars. Adds rage.
'enter' - Restart level.

The graphics are a little bland, and it doesn't really bring anything new to the table. IT also doesn't really connect to the theme. However, I did play it for a while, because it was pretty fun, despite that :)

Fun little game!

I played to the end (I think? Looped back to the start), it was quite fun! I actually felt the visual style, though simple worked well.

Took me a while to figure out which cars I could destroy and that I had to dodge the other. Kind wish I could just blow them all up. I feel your pain, Joe.

Nice idea, rage meter makes you think instead of spamming lasers like most of the similar genre games would expect you to. Would play more if there were more levels, you could develop the idea further imo. Good job.

Fairly fun with a nice gameplay loop and level structure, the plot is pretty clunky though.

There's some nice ideas here, I think the execution can be improved.

I managed to finish the game. The look on Joe's face when he got angry was awesome! The game was a little short, but it was easy to learn. Well done!

It didn't feel very thematic, but it was very funny. I liked all the humor.

Hehe, I'm usually on the opposite end of this. So it's VERY pleasing and a little bit scary how good this feels.
The game feels very polished. Nice!

I liked the way shooting had a cost, gave this a bit of a twist I thought.

Mini Submission FAQ

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.

CAN I ENTER BOTH EVENTS?: You should pick 1 event, whichever you think it’ll do better in. If the idea is strong, and everything plays well enough, you can go Compo. If you’re a perfectionist, and would prefer people to play a more polished game, do the Jam. Historically, more games are entered in the Compo, but with more people and more time, Jam games have the potential to be better (that doesn’t mean they are). Many solo participants do enter the Jam.

If you made 2 games, unfortunately, the website doesn’t support multiple submissions per user. To submit your 2nd game, you will have to make a 2nd account. Only do this if you made 2 games. Alternatively, if one game is better than the other, then consider just entering the better game.

CAN I KEEP WORKING UNTIL THE DEADLINE?: Yes! Immediately after the 48 or 72 hours, we do something called Submission Hour. As the name suggests, it’s an extra hour for you to package, upload, and submit your games. If there were catastrophic issues trying submitting your game, or you misunderstood how submissions work, that’s okay. It happens. We’re flexible. If you need advice, check with the folks on IRC. If you need an admin, get in touch.

CAN I KEEP WORKING ON MY GAME?: Oh definitely! You should! But for the sake of judging, keep the Compo or Jam version around. You can include a link to the Post-Compo/Post-Jam version of your game on your games page, but sure your main links are the original version.

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 at least 20 games to improve your visibility (Coolness).

MY GAME CRASHES, IS UNBEATABLE, OR I MADE A TYPO: We allow you to fix crashes, win condition, or tiny bugs after the deadline. In a sense, this is like “porting” to support more players. We leave this open to interpretation, but generally speaking your game should be identical to the game you submitted. No new features, just fixing mistakes you should have caught had you been better rested.

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.

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.
