Super Monster World

by Croze - Compo Entry

NOTE: GAME IS BEST PLAYED FULL SCREEN HIGHEST RESOLUTION
sry if it runs poorly

Super Monster World is a game like Super Mario World, but with a twist.
Instead of jumping on monster's heads, you control THEIR MINDS, you BECOME THE MONSTER and make them FIGHT FOR YOU
I apologize I didn't use my infamous mouth-sfx but I wanted a more satisfying entry this time. I'm very happy with it :)))

NOTE: THIS GAME IS VERY DIFFICULT TO WIN
I only ask that you don't let the difficulty what you rate any of the categories other than fun if you felt it was too difficult to have fun with

I really liked all the diffrent enemy behaviour all the enemies felt really unique.

I like the concept, but I found the controls and attacks too difficult to really get the hang of. Interesting take on the theme, too.

This was an interesting game. I liked the concept of controlling the enemies and the cost factor in doing so. I think this game would benefit from some puzzle elements and to have to use the monsters to help the player move across the level.

A very interesting concept. I had a lot of difficulty controlling the monsters, but it was fun.

Interesting and challenging! I almost always died from shooting myself :(.

Most of the time when I click an enemy, nothing happens.

You probably didn't have 3 Life force then Robot Souls, thanks for the feedback everybody! Not too sure why people are having problems controlling the monsters, some of them behave differently like the Rollers, who only jump when you release the A or D key

Concept is very neat. Enemy's feel really unique. Great game. Congratulations

The idea is fantastic but overall the execution was subpar. The control of the camera felt off and the controls were quite finicky.

There's a lot more strategy involved than I expected. I was expecting a platformer but the challenge was more in deciding what kind of enemy to use. Nice job!

It was challenging to figure out how best to get past the monsters and picking the most advantageous monster to control. I like it.

Hey can you try my game again? I fixed the glitch.

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.
