Dr. Jekyll & Mr. Hyde

by Kalm004 - Jam Entry

You're Mr.Hide. When you have the control you have to kill people and collect potions. When you don't have the control, Dr.Jekyll will try to get all the cures he can. You will still be Mr.Hide inside the head of Dr.Jekyll, you can force him to do things like jump when you want.

The theme is pretty good and It's a surprisingly fun game. at first thought it's just a run-of-the-mill platformer, but the twist's not bad

Good idea and I like that pixel art!

Way better than the NES Jekyll and Hyde game, lol. Nice work.

Really cool take on the theme! I've always been a fan of the Jekyll/Hyde concept.

Some variation in the levels would have been nice, rather than replaying the same level with less time - that's my only issue!

Lots of stuff in this game.
The npc's are too litle and statick though.
I love the theme

Thanks for your comments and your feedback. We wanted to change the npc's but we ran out of time.
We wanted also to implement more levels and a final fight between Jekyll & Hyde (inside the head of the character).

Nice gameplay mechanic. The art was nice, but didn´t really fit together.

This is definitely the coolest use of the theme I have seen. The gameplay is a little sloppy but it's definitely playable, and worth the concept.

Hey! Thanks for making a game.

What we liked:
The animation of the main characters was nice. There was plenty of variation in the sounds which is good and the cheesy music was nice in context.

What could be improved:
The gameplay felt really floaty, there was no sense of weight to the characters which is very important for a platformer. I didn't really understand how to play, the directions for keys were extremely clear but the descriptions were quite wordy which made it hard to decipher what I should be doing.

Thanks for your comments, especially for your feedback, we'll take all of it in consideration for our next game. It was the first time developing games for part of the team, next time we hope to do it better :)

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.
