Toy Monster

Toy Monster

A game where the main objective is to kill heroes the your "clients" are being pestered by. The heroes are some what "spin offs" of real game protagonists.

That all are Toy as the title states and that real game heroes move sets where edited to fit the stile of game such as Mario being made into a pyromancer and looking nothing like his self (view screen shots above) the only thing they have in comin is the name and even that is edited. They are very roughly based on the original character (try to guess how level twos heroes are).

The game is a top down shooter with the MMO functionality of having number keys to do various special attack that have cool downs. The game only three levels long, I was just a bit too ambitious.

btw to edit the controls scroll all the way to the bottom of the unity start up launchers inputs, sorry.

Is stage 3 impossible? :D Its hard to actually understand the concept, well I still don't know what the minions are for, but it already made some fun. Maybe a background image would be nice, so you see your movement better :)

The special attacks were good - the shield worked well and the laser was satisfying, although I think it disappears pretty quickly. I didn't like the fact that there isn't much feedback when you win or lose, you're immediately transferred to a different game screen.

Fun game shooting the heroes with good 3D graphics and lighting effects. Couldn't tell when the heroes were hit - be good to add health indicator to them.

I like that this is more than just shooting and there are tactics involved in using the shields and other special abilities effectively. Found even the second level pretty hard before working out how to make the most of these. Music was a bit annoying :)

There are definitely some issues here, like the lack of feedback when you hit an enemy, and the lack of recovery frames makes it easy to die like, instantly, but overall it's not a bad attempt.

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.
