Audio's a bit much.

@DantronLesotho The second icon in the center allows you to download the file.

Audio a bit too loud.
I like the idea of, let's say, Not-so-super Gumba.
My record is 27 seconds, can anyone beat that? :P

Kinda fun. Really nails the theme. I wish the guy jumped a little higher because he is tough!

It runs on Linux, which is nice.
The Audio is all over the place, and I can only press a/d once and it will always only and automatically go in that direction. Jumping only works once.
OS: Ubuntu 14.04 x64

Good idea and good arcadey sounds but the Goomba didn't jump high enough and lacked the ability to dodge fast enough.

Very cute - I wish I could have squashed her though!

Hate to say it but the audio is somewhat jarring (although I did get used to it). It was fun to play though - awesome use of the theme.

Love the idea. Very hard though.

Way too simple due to problems with AI. I managed to get the girl to jump on the raised platform and she got stuck jumping back and forth there, never coming down to where I was. I guess I won?

I have the same problem as TiByte, also on Ubuntu 14.04.

Very nice project guys, i really love it, please check our game too and if you liked it give us a vote. Look for Road to hell and enjoy.

Interesting twist on the "You are the Monster" theme with good background music and sound effects. Mario jumps intelligently although there seemed to be times where the Goomba should have killed him.

That interpretation of theme is great. Not looks very good if we talk about graphics, but is cute and easy to understand, has nice music and fx too.

I like the graphics a lot, and the game is good arcade fun! Not a huge fan of the loud audio, but overall it's a solid compo submission. Great work!

Super hard!

I think there's also some issues with collision boxes. I think the goomba has a bit too large of a collision box (adjusting it might make it too easy though).

Good work for this theme :)

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 ( 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.
