Boss Fight Simulator 2015

by ZXeno - Jam Entry

Your goal is to defeat the bros! You are the boss fight on their quest for more beer and weights! Defeat them, and claim your victory over their belches and farting frat-boy natures!

Left Arrow Key <= Move robot left.
Right Arrow Key => Move robot right.
A key => Melee Attack
S key => Ranged Attack
D key => Super Weapon Attack

Each wave, 8 bros will spawn.
Kill them all to progress to the
next wave. Between each wave, you
will gain a level, which will increase
your Attack Power and Health.
Your health bar is across the
top of the screen.

The bros' health bars are on the left.

Your health is regenerated every
other wave. Good luck!


Made with C#/Monogame, Paint.Net, BFXR, Artuir's Musical talent and Voice (and whatever tools he used).

Honestly, I as a programmer, I feel like I spent too much time doing visuals instead of programming and making the game better. Perhaps next time, I'll actually find an artist, and there will be more game to play!

fun game, nice was hard to know if you hit, death animation too slow, and sfx continue after you die.

Hard in the beginning, easy after level 3.

I like the retro style graphics and sound. And the gameplay is fun! But I found I could just sit at the left side of the stage and and spam ranged attacks to win (and I seemed to get more more powerful than the bros), got up to wave 50 that way and got bored.

I like the idea and the game :) But, please, make the death animation faster because staring at that "bum bum crash" it's really annoying :D

Interesting one< but REALLY easy to play. Just stay in the corner and press D and S.
Got it to the 18th wave, then get bored :(
But liked it anyway!

Actually pretty tricky, but I felt compelled to try a bunch of times since I was often sooo close to the next level. I feel like the melee attack was a little underpowered though, given the limited range and the amount of damage you take while using it.

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.
