Nice driving game, sort of feels like you are driving on ice. Also I fell off the map on level 2.

Turning monster into an acronym feels more like dodging the theme than being clever with it. It would work if you were also a metaphorical monster, and the MONSTER acronym is another layer on top of that, but this is just a driving game.

Theme aside, I'm unclear if there's an objective. It feels like driving on the moon. Speed picks up very slowly, and the car flips way too easily.

Well...M.O.N.S.T.E.R... yeah. I like this completely different approach. Would have been nice with a bit more gravity and maybe a lower point of weight on the car.

The physics are really wonky, interesting. Couldn't find the ball on the first level. Nice color choices!

I've been looking forward to this ever since the first screenshot! Sadly, it doesn't load on my computer... I'll try again tomorrow!

The physics are a bit strange and I think the MONSTER thing is a bit exagerated

The only level that I managed to do, this is the last ... by cheating (you can get to climb the side of the platform that supports the bubble) :D

Well... this is a good crash simulator I guess! :D

You could have done the MONSTER-TRUCK!!

Much better than I thought when I had started. It kind of reminded me of the stunt tracks in the old Rush games. I like this kind of thing. The hovercraft like physics were hard getting used to but still fun. You could just spend more time messing around than actually accomplishing anything. Having your successful runs timed is a good idea. I do have to knock it down for not going along with the theme at all. Some more sounds would be nice to. A racing game without engine noise is pretty strange.

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.
