Super Monster Fighter 1

by TomOlivier - Jam Entry

What happens when a city is being attacked by 4 monsters?
Take the control of the city by destroying buildings, collecting power-ups and crushing your ennemies. But remember, only one monster could make it.

Can be playable in local mode up to 4 people (with pads/keyboards). Also we have a basic AI (that can beat you, don't you dare!).

-- README --
On the player screen, start by toggling players / AIs ON as shown in the screenshot number 2 before selecting your player. Otherwise, you'll only have a black screen.

-- Controls --

Keyboard:
Arrow to move
Space to hit

Pads:
Joystick to move
A to hit

Have fun :)

I dared to fight the AI! And lost...
BUT I redeemed myself and beat it twice in a row!
You made a fun game; too bad I didn't have someone else to play with in the local mode. The announcer shouting out "TOM!" was so great that I just had to play as him. Great job overall.

I am not going to vote for this one.
When I the game play starts the screen goes black.
I don't know what happened. Sorry I can't rate.

@tGiant - You should select a character first (see screenshot 2) :)

Fun game, nice music and well implemented gameplay.

AI is very difficultp

Cool game, I think it could've helped to have a varying colour palette since the monsters kinda blend into the background, since everything is a bit green.

I don´t know how to describe it... it´s like in this game the mechanics are as wilhelm as the screams :D

Nice ui.
The gameplay is too simple. With a special attack by character, this game would be so much better. Sadly but the Gozilla fight style was a great idea!

Great level generation and UI. I beat the bot a few times, but I notice if I keep player after several times, the screen is black but I can still see the UI and hear sounds.

But anyhow, fun fighter.

It took me several games to beat the AI. Nice game :). I also had the black screen on restarting a game. I had to refresh the page to be able to play more than once.

Ah! This is great! It has loads of potential for an amazing 4 player game. It feels like a perfect mini game for something like Mario Party. Cool music too!

Awesome job!

Was very fun! Got a little bit repetitive, maybe different scenery would have helped. God job though :)

Great game. Add versus play to the simple concept! The graphics are nice too!

Nice!

Very addictive.
Good job! :)

I tried to play with two players, but we couldnt both use a keyboard. The game itself is really nicely made! I included it in part 16 of my Ludum Dare 33 Compilation video series, if you would like to take a look :) https://youtu.be/aXZw1Jpw2JA

Liked it! Really nice menu UI & music, though in-game sound got a little annoying and the terrain could do with more details.

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.
