Kraken Rampage

by randyyaj - Compo Entry

Rid them humans! Don't let them bunker. You are a Kraken on Rampage!

Didn't get time to do an ending. So just exit the game when you have killed everyone. What was suppose to happen at the end is a difference in bunked vs killed to determine winning status. But meh.

Space to start/ fire ink
Arrow keys to move.

The visuals are definitely the highlight of this game. Love the art style! Also, the idea of a flying Kraken is pretty funny.

Wish you had more time to flesh out the overall gameplay.
But still, nicely done :)

Agree on graphics - 5/5, gameplay needs improvements, anyway - really cool!

I was anticipating this game when I saw your art mash-up on LD blog page - your visuals are quite cool. I wish you had more time to make it more playable game. Also, I found targeting humans really strange. I often don't kill somebody I was sure he is in the targeting circle. [T]

Graphics are the best, and humor :) make me laugh. Good work!

The art style is awesome! However the gameplay is pretty basic and repetitive. Adding a bit more depth e.g. more ways the Kraken and the humans can interact could make this a pretty fun game if you want to expand on it.

Outstanding art! The style is quite well defined, everything from the low-color-count palette to the sans serif font helps to unify the elements. And that Kraken sprite, man. Top notch.

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 ( 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.
