Nicely polished entry. Great music 5/5.

That's stupid. I love it!
Well made, no bug, easy to understand, I just can't figure out what the high score are for...

Interesting ideas, not bad art, and some nice audio. The bike doesn't seem to work too well though and the frog is nearly impossible to make jump at full strength without diving head-first into the water.

Nice little game! I was able to do 235! Nice sound, but the usage of the bicycle is a little bit strange.

198.9 with the bomb and bicycle o/ Beat your mark.
Funny entry!

Would probably benefit from some indicator to how close you are to the water level (to time the special skills). Apart from that, nice game :D

The bike felt a bit wonky to use. How do you speed up with it?

Interesting. I'm not sure I could get the frog to work correctly. The glider monster worked best for me. Bike was way slower, which I guess makes sense.

First pushing Z and X alternately slowly, and increasing pushing speed gradually after it, a bicycle becomes faster :)

Nice and simple.
I liked that each monster had its own minigame so you are not only waiting to fall on the water.

Very fun mini-game with nice music! The wackiness of this game reminds me of WarioWare for some reason (that a good thing) :D

Pretty fun game! Maybe not best, but still pretty neat entry!

Nice game :)
The bike is so hard to master to get better results than the other vehicles ^^'
personal best : 220.2m (nitron bomb + truck)

Classic gameplay :-)

Pretty cool. Couldn't figure out the bicycle though. The bomb guy seem superior to the others, made one jump beyond 200 :-)

I like the idea of the monsters defying the gravity. Also using non-aerial vehicles xD The graphics are acceptable and the music is great. It was short, but fun.

Also I notice that the bicycle is, ironically, the fastest vehicle. Weird...

Overall, the game passes.

Surprisingly fun! The mechanics are just complex to keep me trying for another round. The simple premise and nice graphical polish helped a lot too.

High score 171.5. Good fun!

I really liked the variety of gameplay here. I think the frog was my favorite, timing up his jump was quite the challenge. highscore: 217. Nice entry.

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.
