Monster Munch

by Fitscat - Jam Entry

Your gingerbread captives have escaped your spaceship cookie prison, you must eat them before they make it make to their home planet Gumdrop.

Eat as many Renee cookies as you can, but be warned - some Renee cookies are actually Trolls in disguise and will steal points from you!

Avoid the Burnard cookies, burnt cookies tasty yuk and will lose you points.

The giant cookie Golden is their leader, eat her before she escapes for a massive bonus.

And if you see Hourglass catch it to get extra cookie munching time.

The fact that there's no cue to find the troll cookies isn't great, though I liked that he had a different reaction sound. Hearing "you're a monster" whether I got points or lost points was a little confusing. Maybe one more sound for Burnard? Also, your physics did some wacky things from time to time.

With all that said, it was a good quick game, perfect for a jam. Now I want cookies and jam.

Quite hard ;/
But funny sounds, I like it :)

Thanks for letting us play your game!

What I liked:

Clicking gingerbread men until I had devoured them all.

Areas to develop:

The cookie men had a habit of getting stuck on the edges of the screen and I don't like it when the confectionery scum rob me of my hunt!

Congratulations, good work!

You're a monster! Fun little game that with a bit more development would be suited to tablets/smartphones.

You are the Monster. The Cookie Monster that is :D The gingerbread men are probably a bit too small and move too quickly but this was a surprisingly fun entry.

Thought it was a pretty solid entry, but could use a bit of polish. Fun idea!

Nice clicker game. Needed a bit of polish but it was ok. I think I would enjoyed it more with larger click boxes around the objects. This would make it easier of course but would make me feel with more control over the gameplay.
The sound effects are good and good humor too!

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.
