Hungry Kaiju

by NoahbroCZ - Jam Entry

You are a terryfing Kaiju and you need to eat some fish. And where are more fish than in Japan. But be careful, few people would love your head as a trophy so they use bomb traps -avoid them.

Control the Kaiju with UP and DOWN arrows

Thanks for playing my game. It was created for Ludum Dare 33 by NoahbroCZ: www.twitter.com/vondranoah

Aah it gets strangely addictive and challenging to avoid the bombs when the kaiju slides all the way up and down on one keypress, it becomes much more a test of skill and timing!

Nice work :D

Great game. I really like the music, but dislike the SFX.

Nice game, though it does get quite challenging since you can only be at the top or at the bottom of the screen, yet not in the middle. I included it in part 1 of my Ludum Dare 33 Compilation video series, if you would like to take a look :) https://youtu.be/SB3lix7PW1A

Loved the part that you can only move top or bottom, but not in the middle, that added the twist in the game :) Good job :)

Thanks everybody. I am really glad you like my game- it is something very special to hear that, even though my game is not as good as many other here. Once again I thank you and hope you will enjoy my future games not only on Ludum Dare

Doesn't run in Firefox, so I switched to Chrome.

Having only two positions adds a fun twist to a game that otherwise would have been too easy.

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.
