Forest monster!

by hunttis - Compo Entry

The evil cutesy seal villagers have been destroying your forest!


Should work on mobile as well! Probably better with tablets.

Click/Tap to move.
Click the first button (or press Z on the keyboard) to gain a short burst of speed.
Click the second button (or press X) to roar, stunning aggressive enemies. Roar isn't available in the few first levels.

Made with Sublime Text 3 and Phaser 2.3 (annoyingly noticed I was using an older version of Phaser too late). Graphics drawn with Sprite Something. Sounds made with chiptone, except for the roar, which is roared by me and edited in GarageBand. Levels made in Tiled.

Nice game, easy to gasp and funny idea. Some checkpoints would be nice so you don't have to start in the first level over and over again ;)

Fun game. I didn't get it at first, but then it was easy after I made my first kill.

Nice game! I had to play a few times to get used to move it using the mouse, but I have already finished it... more than once hehe :D it's pretty enjoyable.

btw, I think I found a 'cool' bug... if I press 'Z' just before the next level (when "Nice work!" appears), then the burst speed will be activate all the time during the next level xD - unless I press Z.

Thanks for all the nice comments guys and gals :) Keeps me striving for even better next time :)

Igoramendola: Gahh, I didn't even think of that :D yeah, I reset the cooldown, but not the status between the levels :P

Well, the sounds are a bit repetitive but i find them funny.
The gameplay is not at all difficult but it does play nice without too much scratching.
For a compo entry it is a nice entry.
Keep up the good work!

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.
