Adolf no Baito!

by PixelPerfect - Compo Entry

You play as Adolf on his journey through his new part time job!

Controls:
Advance dialog: Left Click/Space/Enter

Side notes:
Should probably plan for having to go to work next time. This game is the result of a theme I had no ideas for. I hope it you find entertainment despite it's flaws. Please report any bugs in the comments.

Every time I failed on the planning it doubled the required number of correct moves.. so I couldn't get 3200 correct moves in 50 seconds. Would have enjoyed doing more painting. Oh man, that dialogue though.. it was glorious.

I can barely play this game and I can't tell if it's because the interface needs work or because this is so funny. Either way, great job on the humor, but there are unfortunately a lot of problems. Sometimes my game just closed unexpectedly (when i tried painting) and the tactics game seems very, very hard. Still, I had a lot of fun.

The game crashed for me when I chose to paint and after the second successful planning stage, which makes it hard for me to appreciate this game fully. (I'm running Windows 7 64-bit, if that helps.)

I think the planning game is an interesting idea, but it would make more sense if you limited the keys to either the left side or the right side of the keyboard, since it's hard for me to cover the whole keyboard and move my cursor on my trackpad.

The white text on the pink background is hard to read; maybe use a shadow effect on the text to give it a distinguishing border?

As a game in its present state, it's not very fun, but it's a unique idea and it has potential.

Just patched the painting bug, really sorry about that!

Also fixed the crash after second planning, thanks FiveIronFanatic.

I will probably make a post compo version later this week with some of the features I just couldn't finish in time.

Funny, but the tactics game is too hard.

Being an anime adolf hitler really isn't my thing but the two minigames worked pretty well.

You killed me with the "hitler-senpai" XD
BTW - the title means "hitlers part time job" doesn't it? XD

Non-compo speaking I'm about to release a full-length visual novel free to play.. hopefully one day you'll play it =]

I think a few of the jokes went over my head, but surely an interesting concept. I got stuck on the planning though, I just wasn't fast enough... and it wasn't even close. I wonder what other things were in store if I could have gotten further...

Dialogues were great!

Guoboism, would you be able to run the game in cmd and post the error it gives you? It would help a lot. put the jar in your documents and run these commands in this order:
cd Documents
java -jar AdolfnoBaito.jar

Thanks!

So, you play as Adolf? :D Well, that's one scary monster. Nice idea!

Excelent theme usage! xD
The planning games was fun, but a bit hard since it could be any key...
My game also crashed after the second planning with the following message: Resource not found: res/backs/bunkBackdel.png
I want to know what happens with Hitler-sepai T_T Will he notice Joseph-kun??

Just uploaded a patch for that crash now if you want to give it a go! Glad you liked it.

Aug 25, 2015 @ 1:38am

Good sense of humor... Just a boring game.

The painting was cute, but the tactical maneuvers... I'd rather you do smaller numbers in less time than extremely long drawn out sequences you have to restart. 80 is just ridiculous.

But I'll admit, the well timed last bit before the crash made me chuckle.

Aug 25, 2015 @ 2:54am

yeah! we took some kind of same monster^^ but made something completelly different^^

freaky stuff! xD
for me a litte bit too much text to read^^

That was... interesting. The strategy game is impossible for me...

Really wanted to play but I'm a techno noob (don't be fooled by the fact that I made a game - I used a non-coding toolkit) and I could figure out how to open the jar file :'(

Ah, if you're on PC you right click, go to 'Open with' and click "Java(TM) Platform SE Binary".

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.
