Pretty fun, but it got really repetitive really fast.

Fun little game. A little bit more variety would be nice.

Not bad at all, I like the art and the 2 states : chasing/being chased
I don't really understand "jump" perk though.

That knight suddenly sped up so quickly towards the end. Was fun for a bit but it got repetitive.

The klickclickclickclickclick... rememberes me on c64 olympic games (the joy-stick destroyer games). The theme is very well met. And the sound and the monster is great.

Isn't running for me in FireFox or IE11 - just getting an empty rectangle.
IE's console gives an "InvalidStateError" at audio.js line 40, and a bunch of "AUDIO/VIDEO: Unknown MIME type" errors, if that helps.

Worked on Chrome. I didn't find it very fun... after all it's literally pressing a button really fast.

I thought the day/night cycle was a really good addition to this genre of game. Just a nice simple addictive game.

Does not work in firefox, but I switched to Chrome and it worked just fine. A bit repetitive and not very hard, but it's a fun little game. Makes me think of Cookie Clicker with monsters in it :)

Nice clicker. Good graphics and sounds.

Nice concept, but like someone said, a bit repetitive.

Aug 25, 2015 @ 2:36pm

Every thing is slow and irresponsive

The interface is not the best part of the game but the rest is funny :). At the end I was pushing the "jump" button as fast as I was pushing the normal button at the beginning !

For those who don't know, ThomeTheMagician is just commenting a negative comment because he created a copied game that broke several compo rules, and he is copying negative reviews by other users on his game to theirs. This game is legit, while his isn't.

An good idea for an idle(?) game.

Cool idea, felt like the tuning was a bit off.

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.
