Krakoogle- dexterity game

by Kai20 - Jam Entry

Hey Ludum dares
Our first game KRAKOOGLE is now up. We dont think that we sleep enough or breath enough but hey it was awsome. This game is about a file kraken that needs more files to get points.

The Controlls are W-E-R-T

Destroy the cubes when they are in the red "Thing " at the end of assembly line. Then just press the Keys for the right assembly line
RUN IT ON FANTASTIC

Enjoy our Game KRAKOOGLE

Fantastic audio and graphic! Great game. Took me a little while untill I found, when exactly I need to press "W", bit annoying, but great game!

I like the idea, but the control is rly bad. W-E-R-T? why? :) WASD should be logical I think.

Perhaps you have a different keyboard layout than me, but the controls made it really difficult to play!
You would've been fine just using arrow keys instead

Fun game, audio and style fit well. Some animation would have been nice, and possibly different default keys? Overall feels very polished, nice job!

Good work for a first job.

Some more effects would have helped make the game more manageable. For example a color change or glow when a box is in a trigger area. Currently it can be hard to be sure a box is in the trigger area. Additionally this would help with noticing boxes in your peripheral vision.

But overall a nice looking game.

Wow, difficult but very good indeed, but it takes time to get it going!

Good graphics! Music is good but a bit distracting :P
I think it is fun but very hard. I would have chosen a different keyboard layout.

The game looks great, neat and minimalistic, but as previously said the keyboard layout needs to be changed. Its fun and hard nice.

Nice graphic, some suggestions:
- make sure boxes have some space between them, makes them more visible
- make a sound/grafics effect when a box is hit
- map the controls somewhat similar to the lanes geometrically, e.g. wasd, so the player can relate that easier
- animate the conveyor belt, e.g. by animating the uv coordinates
- make the thing I am supposed to do more fund than the thing I am not supposed to do (I watched the boxes pile up for quite a while)
- maybe use a cooldown instead of punishment for useless button hits, so you can't spam keys, but it does not feel that harsh
- maybe increase the hit area a little, I should be able to hit it right until it starts falling over

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.
