Who Is The Monster?

by Super Hamster - Compo Entry

There is a little street that many people walk on, including a unicorn. However there are always some bloody deaths happening on it. No one ever sees what happens in there line of vision so no one knows why people are dying. The people of this wonderful street have started to believe one of them is a monster. All of them are ready to trap the monster with a cage as soon as they see the monster. And so they always ask:
"Who is the monster?"

Controls:

kind of fun, I wish there was a small delay for detection so that you could kill 2 guys next to each other even if the last one is looking at you.

Nice fun and simple idea. Was a little difficult but I liked it. Nice work.

I had fun playing! I really love your choice of "monster" - So great!
I found it hard (or maybe I lack patience) - I managed to get 12 kills, after trying to be super stealthy :P Well done!

Unplayable to me, the game looks cool but when i push a button (up or down) the motorbike is stuck on one side of the road, and it's staying like this until the end of the game :( looks very good idea otherwise :)

Compelling fun game with a good learnign curve.
Has the "One more try" factor.

Very silly, very fun. Wish it was a little easier, but I guess I suck :P

Quick and easy game, still difficult! I like it.

Loved the download size, half a meg is excellent :) Unfortunately the gameplay was a bit too frantic for my taste, everything just happened to fast that I hardly got away with anything. Maybe a little delay would have helped, or also a little momentum in the controls. Still, I enjoy playing a badass unicorn!

Very nice idea!

It's a nice little game you've made here, I had a lot of fun playing it and, as said above, the learning curve is great. Good job, dude :)

Ha! I totally went into this game thinking it was a lighty & fluffy game - with rainbows and unicorns. Lol. Man, it was hard! But also quite fun. I got 26 kills as my best. Art was good, the contrast between "cute" and "gore" was great. If I could change anything, I'd suggest a small "wha?!" animation from the guys before they charged me, so that I knew it was coming.

Well done!

Hard to find a time that all looks away...
Fun game.

Challenging, but fun game. I included it in part 27 of my Ludum Dare 33 Compilation video series, if you would like to take a look :) https://youtu.be/hHQb1uxX9tA

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.
