Great game! Sounds effects were a bit weak but I enjoyed the monster romp!

There were many monster rampage games this time, but the inclusion of specific goals makes this one a lot more interesting then just crashing around until you either die or get bored.

That was fun. Loved the art. Wish there was more stuff to smash, though.

It's nice to have gamepad controls in there, they work really well.

Collision detection was a bit off on some buildings, and I was shooting the military base but it didn't seem to do anything (if it's meant to?)

Overall was fun :D

I liked that one a lot! Fun look and fun game! I'm not convinced about the key mapping but after a minute you get used to it. Great job!

Nice submission. I liked the gear of the dinosaur. Would have been good if the tail could break the buildings too.

Well rounded little game. Fun, funny, looks decent. I did end up getting stuck in geometry after blowing up the military base with the nuke though.

It's always fun to go on a rampage with a huge monster. Destroying the buildings felt so great.

Aug 28, 2015 @ 9:24pm

Cool, I liked the way that the buildings shattered into pieces when destroyed.

Amazing game! Really liked how much of the city was actually destroyable! Graphics look really cool, the music is fitting. Great work!

The web version has context menu pop up under RMB! You might want to turn that off (in the Player Settings). Nice art!

One of the best destruction games I played so far. Like the graphical art style. Had a hard time trying to aim and destroy the tanks though.

This is really fun! The graphics were really nice, I liked the fireball and it's shadow. And all the goals were fun to accomplish (especially blowing up the military base and jumping to take down a helicopter), 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.
