Probably the cutest monster I've seen! The animations art style look good, though I found it a bit awkward to move with WASD and press X at the same time.

Looks great. Who knew penguins were evil.

Web link does not work. 'X' is an unfortunate combination with WASD. Otherwise good looking little game.

Pretty neat idea. Had an issue on the second level where it wouldn't let me through the door unless I was perfectly placed and in later levels a single bullet hit multiple times destroying my health instantly.

I think that it was the contrast between the cuteness of the penguin and the genuine menace it orchestrated that made this such a humourous mix. Great work! 5/5 Graphics!

Animations and art style are really nice. The controls feel really snappy and good especially together with the sounds. Kind of a nuclear throne vibe to it and I like it. It is hard. Some upgrades or health regeneration would be nice :)

@MAnimal yes the portal bugs sometimes, made the mistake of changing how the colliders work at the last hours :D

Gorgeous pixel art work/animation, gorgeous effects, really looks great.

The game didn't feel really interesting, wasn't satisfying marching up to gun-toting dudes to eat them, most of the time you're basically forced to eat a few shots, and if you don't, you're just spending a ton of time wandering left and right and... it just wasn't satisfying. If it were insta-kill there'd be some interest to die and come back quickly and see how many you can eat before dying, but because of the life-bar it just felt long and drawn out, and I'd lost interest super quickly.

Controls are awkward, but I could use the arrow keys, and that was fine.

Oh yes the door sometimes didn't register, had to wiggle around a lot.

Great idea to make a penguin the bad guy :) The game is replay fun but unfortunately there is a issue that makes it difficult to get out of the rooms.
I 'm really sad about it 'cause I really like your game.

Evil benguin!
Accidentally killed someone by pressing x because the world told me to :c

Great game. Liked the look and feel of it. Would have liked to have a few different enemy types (only got to level 7 so not sure if there are more after) Very polished looking though.

As others have said, X with WASD is a bit awkward. I couldn't enter the second blue portal. Other than that, nice feedback on things (screen shake, sounds etc).

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.
