I couldn't move left, but I like the graphics and audio, and the ai is pretty nice!

You have edit your key ? It's key binding for azerty default.

I also had trouble moving - it seems I kept getting stuck in the ground. I like the art!

Nice little game you have here :)

The graphics are solid, the mechanics too, I think the shop is a little overkill for this type of game, maybe the upgrades should be added automatically? Overall a solid experience even if left movement didn't work for me.

After further testing I found that the game wouldn't start up a second time. It keeps crashing after I start a new game.

Could have used some dialogue! I liked the difficulty curve - the shop was a great idea.

Aug 24, 2015 @ 2:51am

unfortunately the controls are not confgured for qwerty as the descriptions suggests. you have to go in and set it up. the scaling seemed harsh. grinding the first section forever and ever.

Aug 24, 2015 @ 2:54am

Neat game! A little slow going, but still fun. The art and sound are also good. Nice work!

This game is far too long. I got the controls working, but I don't like the shop. It's artificial difficulty and the gameplay isn't fun enough to make me want to grind for experience. I gave up when I reached the first 2-blocks-high jump and I was sick of restarting the level over and over.

I like the game's design and concept, but the shop was very slow to get upgrades, so after a half hour, I still hadn't mad much progress through the second cave (I got up to the first point where you need to make a higher jump, didn't have the power to jump up high enough and spent two more play sessions getting enough XP to jump high enough to progress. I love the idea, but would have liked to see less of a grind on the game. Just making the upgrades be slightly more powerful each time you upgrade would have worked, but for 48 hours, balancing is extremely difficult.

Sadly i can't run the game: "A Java Exception has occured."

Nice little game ! Graphics are cute and it was fun. I just found that the sounds are annoying but that's the only problem in this game :)

Le côté graphique est travaillé, la musique aussi, le son bon pour un LD ça passe ^^. J'ai pas eu le courage d'aller très loin, je suis pas fan du die & retry

Overall it's a decent game.
The necessary grinding was a bit annoying :/
You're adding gameplay but by forcing the player to repeat the same task over and over.
The graphics were good even if a bit bland.

Pour la totalité du jeu je le trouve chaud ! Les graphismes sont sympa et la musique aussi pour une seconde participation c'est plutôt bon je trouve. Bien joué

i really liked it. mainly the graphics. you should made normal qwerty movement default since most of the world has that configuration. but nice one!

Fun game! Truly slimes are the unspoken heroes of our world.

WOW ! BEST GUI I've seen so far in the compo! + There's a settings menu!!!
Also great idea though I believe you maybe could do some more stuff to make the game less repetitive. Still I liked the entire idea - skills and energy bar that takes parts of your body was awesome. Very very good for a 48h compo! WELL DONE!

Had fun with the game. For some reason I couldn't move left. Like the shop mechanic.

I actually really enjoy this game. It reminds me of those flash games you play on Newgrounds or whatever. It got a little "grindy" though so I didn't have time to solve it, but cool game nonetheless.

A bit repetitive, but still strangely addictive. There's an impressive amount of content! I went pretty far (I think), but I didn't finish it because I had to quit the game and lost my progress :/ I wish it would persist saves (or does it? there's a load button on the main screen but I couldn't figure out how to save)
Félicitations, ça a du être un sacré boulot !

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.
