Nice idea. Took me some time to understand the gameplay, but it works somehow.
Nice drumtrack

looks excellent. The huge monster is also pretty good looking and nice animations in it.

Well I don't know if I overlooked something, but as long as the bullets just came from a high position you just have to duck all the time :D I don't know whether it's finished yet, I will check it out again after the end of the jam :)

The fact that you get points without crushing people makes this a game about patience :(

Ah ok sorry now I understand, you have to jump on the people :D srry, it was confusing because nothing happened when you simply moved though them

Fun! All the mechanics seem to work as intended. Nice little drum loop.

Nice animations. It's a great simple game. My only problem is that the hit boxes for the missiles are too large, so the game thinks that I have hit a missile when I actually haven't.

maybe you should be more careful with the missiles, because they often hit me when i unduck.
also maybe more map in horizontal would make better gameplay, because you could use the moving skills, and would allow more skill.

There's something about bashing down all those people that's so satisfying XD

Pretty decent entry! Although I felt like you could add a bit more "feel" to the game, perhaps a bit of screenshake when you hit civilians or some sound effect to make it more satisfying ;)

I died because I was greedy. I am a monster

Blob is cute. Crunching people is satisfying. It's too bad you can get points for doing nothing but crouching.

GG endless 2d it's fun for a short time but very easy. if you hold down you win.

Not a bad game, was a really neat concept. Loved the look of the game. However I could just duck forever and I will never die, so I question the games mechanics.

This game has a pretty neat risk reward mechanic going on. I could just find a way to physically hold down the "down" arrow and then wait for some years to get a gigantic score, but jumping up and down is more exciting.

Good job on the game and the cute drawings.

Funny, but gets repetitive a bit too fast. Sometimes I didn't realise I was getting hit, maybe you should add an explosion or something.
I liked the music.

It doesn't matter that you're 12, you made a fantastic game with a really innovative concept. Hope you keep making games!

Aug 26, 2015 @ 9:03pm

Fun simple game. I know you meant it to be a compo entry. Good job with the music.

very simple game, but spent nice 2-3 minutes with it :)

Fantastic job for a first time entry! Would have liked some increase in difficulty to keep the gameplay fresh but overall enjoyed it :)

There are several unexplained loss of life,but very cute!

The gameplay is fun but a bit repetitive. I liked the monster design!

Those missiles hit a bit too easy. Maybe you should reduce the hitboxes.

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.
