BuzzzzOff

by LordKawaii - Jam Entry

You play as the fly. Try to get the person to smash up all the objects in their house while avoiding their swipes.

Click and hold to move.

I was unable to test the Mac/Linux builds, sorry.

Both fonts were from DaFont:
Commodore 64 by Devin Cook & Karmatic Arcade by Vic Fieger

Mike Jones did the music and the sounds.
I did everything else.

Fun, interesting, and good choice of tunes.

Really interesting little game! Very clever I thought. Only thing I felt let it down was the fact that the human can get stuck on tables, walls ect. Other than that, jolly good stuff!

Nice bg music. Thou something was not working properly for me - human was just not smashing stuff as i think was supposed.

I knew the flies were doing it on purpose! Great game! Cool idea.

This was really fun. It was a different kind of "monster" too!

Heheh, not bad. The human does get stuck sometimes. For the audio, it would have been great to add in the occasional muffled cursing or something by the human to inject a little more humour. Nice little game.

I like how the game quickly went from easy to challenging. It really makes you want to try it again to go further. The music really raises the games mood a lot.

Really interesting mechanic! The cueing for the incoming smash is well done.

Cool concept (looks like me against mosquitos...) but think the last level is broken :/ (the one with 3 lines of dishes...I can't reach the lowesst line )
Interesting idea !

On the mac, the game window is too small to see anything, and I can't figure out how to adjust it.

Thanks for the bug report, I will fix that right away.

I really like your idea for the game. It's fun to be the fly for a change instead of the frustrated human. Mike did a great job on the music and sounds. Excellent job on your game!

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.
