LD33 - Shrimpkin Stomp

by track02 - Jam Entry

Stomp the little guys and avoid their attacks, three hits and you're out.

Use the Left / Right keys to set your movement direction and the Down key to stop.

Hold up to charge a jump and release to launch yourself, the white arc shows the path to be taken.


This was going to be a small project for playing around with bezier curves but I was able to make a little game out of it too.

There's no sound at the moment, if I have time I'll add some in - my github will host the lastest version.


How to run:

- Download the zip and run the included executable (Windows)
- Open the .love file (Linux)

I haven't tested this on Windows, so if you can't get it to work let me know.


Have fun, feel free to leave feedback in the comments if you spot any bugs or issues please note them down too.

I was sorta doing well then I noticed there was these small black projectiles hitting me from off the left of screen, assumed it's something I maybe haven't seen yet like a tank or something.

Move to investigate and little people threw at me what appeared to be some form of grenade.

Not as helpless as they look.

Thanks for making this. I found a great inspiration in this jumping while walking mechanics.

Hmm...nice jumping mechanic and interesting concept...and it was done in love2d, which is really is a plus! :D Nice work!

It feels more like a prototype gameplay demo, or some kind of atari-ish game, because of the simple graphics. :P

Missing some sounds here, though, and a stage wall, to prevent the player from exiting the stage.

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.
