Abnormal slime

by lolfrad - Compo Entry

Controls: w a s d or arrow keys to move. space or mouse 0 to change rotation of the blade. h or mouse 1 to use magic(first you must collect it. It is dropped by enemies). Escape or p to pause.

I recommend playing the arena mode, because I started making the challenge(originally called story mode) a little to late and ran out of time :P.
Also there is no sound

Story: You are a two eyed slime, an abnormal from a clan of cyclops slimes. They have banished you and you have decided to kill the king of the rival clan: the eyeless slimes. If you defeat him, maybe your clan will welcome you back as a hero.

Throws an error about data folder missing, even though there is a data folder.

Won't let me download unless I have a dropbox account

I can't get the Windows version to run. Try zipping the data and exe together before you upload them to dropbox maybe? The data folder may be corrupt.

Yep, couldn't run unfortunately, windows 8 if it matters.
"There should be 'AbnormalSlime_Data'
folder next to the executable"

Unfortunately I can't get this to run; I get an error message "Data folder not found" "There should be 'AbnormalSlime_Data' folder next to the executable", but I can see the folder right there :( I'm on Windows 10 by the way, other Unity games work for me.

Could you put up a ZIP for the Mac OS X version? WinRAR isn't built for Mac

Alright, the zip file for Mac is being uploaded now... after this it should all work. Thanks again for the information on the errors.

Nice idea, I found it very difficult

"multiball confusion" is a metaphore sung by Aleks Turner for something complex. There is good reason for that - you see with this amount of balls it's honestly hard. Very hard - the entropy is high and expacting what'll happen is hard, it's almost like a freaking brownian motion! And not to mention how hard it is to pin point exactly this thing. You should've made the collision a bit more rough. Just a bit tweaking this stuff and it's a fair game :)

So close to a very fun game. I have a couple of suggestions:
-I would prefer an all-keyboard control option, maybe spacebar for reverse and restart
-The enemies look far too like the player, I realize that this is part of the point, but definitely having an enemy the same color as the player is a bad move
-I couldn't tell how you were choosing which enemies to spawn on arena mode, but I would suggest setting a 'total point' value per wave, which would dictate that the enemies on each wave can only total number of points which increments with each wave (possibly starting at around 10?), meaning that the player will never have the situation of having 4 reds spawn next to them on the first wave, but leaving the element of randomness that means they never quite know what they're going to get

Good game though, and with some tweaks I would have a hard time putting it down.

Nice idea! It a bit hard due to the fact you cannot control the pointed end directly!

Had some issues that I couldnt change the direction of the spike some of the time, but neat concept. I included it in part 12 of my Ludum Dare 33 Compilation video series, if you would like to take a look :) https://youtu.be/mbmK1PaRvAU

Overwhelming start when you first get in a map, and difficult to survive for a while, but being able to restart quickly helps with that. Decent game overall.

Very good mechanic simple but it can get very deep, specially when added to the different weapons. Makes for a simple quick and fun game. Good job!

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.
