Jeremy Corbyn's Space Tory Destroyer

by Donutttt - Compo Entry

Well... I don't even know what happened here. The thought process went:

-Watch news. Think that Jeremy Corbyn is often portrayed as some kind of monster
-Think I will create platformer where you control Corbyn and spread monstrous message of hope/end to poverty/trains
-Realise that using a new library for LD is not a great idea
-Create anything I can with remaining time

So yeah this one really sucks. But I like to fly round with a steam powered jetpack in space. Basically if you collide with an enemy fast enough they will be destroyed. If not, you lose health. That's it. Sorry this isn't better but I hope you get a laugh out of it.

On the up side I learnt a lot about Phaser and Javascript generally. Also, learnt a bit about Git, which was cool.

Nice little game :D I liked the jetpack mechanic and nogravity.

The art is cute! The jetpack mechanic works well, and I haven't noticed any huge bugs with the collisions or the movement. A little bit of sound effects could have made it a bit more fun! Sadly, I know 0 politics so the reference was lost on me.

The controls feel nice! And it's nice to fly around the game! Some sounds would be a nice addition :)

Hehe, slightly politically charged i see :p
I also see LD as a learning experience to get to know new tools, next time you'll know what to do.
You got a working game out of it in any case! Well done.

Yep, that's bizarre but well on its way toward being really fun. I think I could use some danger though. The flying is great.

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.
