Nice but a bit short.
Also: why did the screen reset every time you leave it?

Great theme and interesting idea, but there was no persistence between scenes

Small, but not bad. I would like to see more people to kill.:D

Also you've said in the comments to my game that you don't know how to complete it. You need to kill all 6 aliens on the level to proceed. Maybe you just didn't find someone? And if you're can't get on top of the tower because of spikes, remember that you can do short jumps if you don't hold a jump key.

I am the monster. This game fits it perfectly. Some sound or music would have been nice

It was an interesting story. The game lacks sound, but is still fun.

I would have loved more ways to defend my planet from those pesky invaders, it was oddly relaxing to watch those guys walk into the traps.

Aug 30, 2015 @ 8:27am

That was brilliant! Live an evil adventure game and reminded me a bit of Don't Stave (because all I seem to do in that game is pick up bits of wood).

Would definitely be great to expand with some more puzzles and some puzzles with a few more steps to them. Enjoyed what you've got so far though.

ha ha I got rid of them. Nice pixel art and I liked the theme and the mood.

Man you're such a mean guy. A monster I would say, or is that going to far? Neat game

Nice art. Music should make better mood in this case.

I murdalated the astronauts!
Really liked the atmosphere and dark edge.
Would have loved more content!
Also it's not clear which screen have exits and which ones don't.
Great job!

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.
