The buildings in the foreground mean that roughly half the screen is obfuscated most of the time, causing me to die repeatedly to attacks I couldn't see.

bad camera angles

Good idea, not so good execution :/

The lack of visibility and the weird controls when on first person (same orientation as in third person) makes it hard to play.

Nice game. I couldn't shoot in the First-Person mode. I liked the environment you made.

Very hard and confusing gameplay

I seemingly can't shoot in FPS mode

I couldn't figure out how to kill humans. I killed the airplanes, which I assume had humans in them.

Good idea, just needs some bug fixes. I liked the 3D effect.

Interesting idea, but a few things let it down. Didn't seem to need the sidescrolling view as y'don't get points and can just dodge the ships. Took me a while to realize you have to click on the humans too. City looks cool.

Very interesting ideas, but ultimately don't contribute meaningfully towards the core experience.

Can't see anything in side camera view. Buildings blocking the view isn't fun.

So we switch to FPS, which is interesting, except you can't shoot.

So toggling between the two is super meh.

But the idea is interesting, just not as it comes together now.

I don't see the need for the 2e perspective.

Nice fun little game :D but the problem was it had wierd controls and lack of vision. nice graphics though.

Camera seemed a bit odd and I don't know if I am supposed to be able to shoot in first person or not.

The game is extremely hard, but I think that mostly stems from the fact that the buildings block so much of the screen.

Very hard & firing broke after a while. Easier in side-scrolling mode.

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.
