Annoying controls but super fun way to let out some aggression!

Quite fun, the controls need to be improved, and the music gets a little repetitive, but all in all, nice game!

Cool graphics, would love to see this gameplay expanded into a bigger game with more content, fun just stomping around hitting things

Love it! The controls were a little bad, but Everything else was fine! Love how unrealistic it is!

Congratulations on your first entry in LD!

First of the graphics are great, and the music is appropriate to the tone you were going for. The game does seem a bit incomplete, though, which makes sense given your last post about burning out. It's tough working on a game almost straight through, and I've found proper sleep and dedicated break times (like eat away from the computer) do help you focus when you are making a game.

I'm guessing the helicopters I saw in an earlier post were either incomplete or something in the game is causing them to not spawn when I play. I do hope you work on this more and get it into the jam, but if not, learn from your first game and improve going forward!

Fantastic for letting off steam. I'm keeping this around for when finals happen next year. :)

I like the controls, which are very precise. Maybe gameplay is a little simple to be honest, but the screen shake when you throw down the building is quite fun. It would be cool if when you throw down a bigger building there is a bigger shake.

It's a really satisfying feeling destroying things on this game. Loved the style and gameplay. The enemy helicopters were a nice addition! Well done.

Good idea but too much tilting and we need to spam the keys to move.

Controls really bad, but it's a good game

Game starts with an annoying noise, though I personally don't mind it. Pretty good use of music, though i think it would've been cool if it played only while you were smashing buildings (personal preference I guess). It fits to the theme very well albeit not very original.

I don't like how my movement is stuck to having to constantly press W/A/S/D. Doesn't help my growing case of RSI at all :P. Though I understand the necessity given how it's more of a strategy game with all the tanks and helicopters, though I think they spawn a little too late (most people won't even make it that far unfortunately in this competition). I still don't know how to kill the enemy sadly. Night time was a very nice feature.

Thanks for the feedback everyone! I will address all of these issues in the post jam version.

Nice game, I like when the sun is rising, its beautifull, but a bit late in the game. I didnt know how to fight tanks/helicopters so they just kill me. I like the music too. Keep up the good work!

Pretty fun. I liked the vibrato on whatever that was for the music. It suited the mood well. The music was a little repetitive, but I didn't mind.

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.
