Monster vs. Military

by Saiyanator - Compo Entry

YOU. ARE. THE. MONSTER. IN. A. CITY.

What to do now? Destroy everything? Why should you do that? You are friendly.
But the military is not! They want to kill you and they will send troops to achieve it.

What are your abilities? Well, you are a monster and you can climb on skyscrapers and shoot with fire (as we all know!). So, use your abilities to defend against the military. But be careful, when you hit the skyscrapers to often, they will get destroyed - and you can't use them anymore.
Try to survive as long as you can!

Welcome in a world, where monsters are misunderstood.
Good luck!

How to play?
=============
Use 'A' + 'D' to move left and right.
'Space' to jump.
Use mouse to aim and left mouse button to fire.

Ubuntu Version
=============
Untested ...

Updates
=============
- I uploaded a fixed win-version. If you want the full LD experience, download "Windows", if you want fixes, then grab the "Windows (Fixed)". :)

Buildings that have been "destroyed' are still registering collisions with the monster projectile every frame, causing the Hit SFX to play stacked

Funny game. Maybe you could add some Upgrades, because it gets a little bit boring after a few minutes.

Fun little game, I had fun wreaking havoc as a huge monster! It was hard to understand at first that the monster was auto-scaling the buildings, and that you could destroy them if you wished. The game became more enjoyable instantly when I realized I could destroy the buildings and then walk through them. Also, it would have been fun to be able to crush the tanks / soldiers just by jumping on them.

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.
