At first I thought Monster factory this should be cool, then I was like "What?" as Daleks were shooting colored liquid from the ceiling at little black things, with bicks in the way and "OH GOD". But I got the jest of it by level 4.
Good job with the physics and the combining of liquids to change the colors very neat game!

I knew someone would make monster energy drink game and here it is. Mechanics are cool and work well. The levels have nice challenge. Nice job!

I was wondering if anyone was going to use Monster energy drinks. Nice take on the theme and interesting idea.

Very original entry and made me thought of Wizball from C64 times.

I was semi thrown off by the monster logo but I guess I should've expected that in some of these entries. :)

All in all a very solid entry!

Was a bit afraid of how the game would turn out but it was really great! Nice mechanics and difficulty curve. Would definitely replay a version with upgraded graphics!

Cool idea. Great mechanics.
But I think the controls and solutions for the levels were a bit too unforgiving.
But all in all great.

Nice concept but some level are a bit very hard.
For the LD maybe give the possibility to skip some lvl ? ;)

Not bad. Seems a little trial and error for my taste though. But it's good for what it is, and very well implemented.

Very addictive puzzle game. The actual puzzles required a little too much pixel-perfect placement of the spouts, some level tweaks might be in order. The graphics are incredible, the audio is flawless and the concept itself is awesome. I played this entry for way longer than I should have, lol. Great job!

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.
