Could use a lose condition

Lel, it was quite fun! The ambiance is amusing, with the slow cheap music and sfx, those silly adventurers and the new powers. The fear power is nice.
One flaw: the UI screens are passed with the Space bar, which I pressed quite a lot, and I missed 2 screens because of that...

Very nice game. I got fun in playing it.
Nice graphics and ambient.
The map is a bit buggy (tombs are sometimes half cutted :p)
But i liked it.

Nice overall but you can't die from bullets?
Like @miotatsu said it needs a loosing condition to add a challenge.
Real nice graphics though!

really cool! Scaring adventurers off only to run into a pit of spikes is easily the highlight of this game for me. The power progression was really cool and I enjoyed my time with this game overall. Nice job!

Fun to play, graphics and ambient feel are the best part. Didn't really manage to die, but that's interesting too! Good work

Funny entry :) If the monster was a bit faster it would be perfect! Good job!

The only thing this is missing is the ability to lose. Great game otherwise.

The idea was fun and gameplay was great too. It runs really well and I can tell you put a lot of time in it

I'm sure getting detection on whether someone sees you was not easy

Eh, it was pretty fun. I'm not sure if it is just me, but I think it could use a bit of a speed increase.

Really cool, loving the art, music and humor, but is there no health on the player character? I just could force through shots and scare enemies. What's the point on the shield then?

I was very pleasantly surprised! Love the upgrade system. Really cool.

The powers were cool and it was nice to feel like I was getting more powerful as I collected the relics. Very good!

Bit plain since you can't die, kills the challenge part of the game. Pathfinding and mechanics were ok.

Nice game, I liked the graphics. It has some rough edges here and there though.

It's fun but too easy, I rushed to the 3 idols and then I showed the fire of the anciens god to those silly adventurers!!!

Nice little game, but it lags so much for me...

Nice and simple, like it.

Sympathique mais effectivement, sans risque de perdre, on est un peu démuni...

Aug 29, 2015 @ 10:40pm

Pretty fun! Loved that each of the idols gave new abilities and they were all pretty awesome. Satisfying to melt the Indiana Jones clones.

Nice job. It was a little tricky because when you were spotted the guys would often get stuck and an unlucky hangup made the game impossible before I got the shield.

Cleaning the house really was fun. Impressive.

Yeah, lose condition is a must. Otherwise, pretty good idea with progression :)

Nice job with that intro! I liked the progression of abilities, though the shield was a bit OP since you could use it continually. I liked the realism in how the bullets were instant/super-fast. I did have some issues with slowdown on Chrome/Mac.

Take that weed smoker!
Awesome game! Graphics (and the filter effect) and music are great! Mood and humor are really good too! At first I thought it was going to be more like a puzzle game killing them with fear, but then I got so many powers... It felt good to clean the house xp
Just felt that the camera (or the game) moved a bit slow... Almost like it's lagging sometimes... Also losing condition would be great too.
Anyway great job!

It was worth to find the thrid idol, fire breath is awsome and I have enjoyed killing spree afterwards :D

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.
