Enjoyed the art style. The overall feel of the game was fun. Peppers causing the firebreath was a nice touch! Wish there was a way to take out the planes.

LOL, thanks. The spooky sound effects I did with my own voice and Audacity where I ran a Paulstretch effect over it. Hahaha

Liked the monster :) Peasants look kind of depressed though.

Really smooth game, great to play.

Limiting the bullets is quite hardcore ! Liked the sound of the falling bombs. Eating peppers doesn't always seems to add bullets or life. Globally nice entry.

Nice sfx and the music was... interesting! However, it was a tad too easy for me, so it could make the completion of levels not very compelling as a result. Art style was quite charming.

Good idea with the limited shots! Really helps to discourage just spam shooting all the time. I kind of wanted to shoot up at the planes too though. Neat game!

Worked on my Galaxy Nexus. Congrats on making a complete game with a beginning, middle, and end. The character felt a little sluggish, but other than that it worked great.

The sound effects are funny, though a bit harsh at times. I kept running out of ammo before having killed all enemies, and it took me a while to realize I could just stomp on them.

The Android version works fine on my Galaxy Tab pro. The game feels nice and complete, though it's rather short.

That audio is crazy! I like the mix of mouth sounds with crunchy 8-bit sounds. Theming is good too, red hot chilli peppers always make me breath fire too!

These sound effects must have been a blast to make, wahahah

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.
