Doesn't fit the theme much, unless there is a deeper message here, what with the boss monster being the old lady with a rake, and the hero looking like a recently released convict. Still, the old lady can kill you very fast, so I guess she isn't an ordinary old lady, and it isn't all a drug-induced hallucination which leads the hero to kill random people in the street.

Other than that, the gameplay is too repetitive, since all monsters have the same behaviour. Upgrades make it a bit more fun, though.

Maybe I'm the monster because I'm killing all these innocent denizens of the environment.

The mudslugs are hecka fast. If one catches up to me, I am fuuuuuuuuuuuuuudged, since I can't run fast enough to get away!

Lots of cool monsters to see though. Awesome variety here!

I don't get what it has to do with the theme either. Also the download link didn't seem to work in Firefox.

People say a lot about a bias from the topic of a Ludum Dare #33... But the game anyway is cool. Nice work!

Bravo! First game here in the jam that didn't force me to claw my eyes out and punch my mother.

Shame there was no sound/music.

I can see this becoming a retail game you can sell online for a buck or two after you refine the graphics and ad sound/music.

Shame it doesn't fit the theme, but you've already been told that a few times. It would have been nice to be a monster running around face-shitting on women and children as they scream in terror!

Overall, you should be very proud of yourself!

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.
