Wonderful style, great idea, I love how the art & animation come together to add life & personality to the character. I'd love to see this developed into a full game.

Really enjoyed the style and humor here. I'm a fan of the tank controls as it makes it difficult to navigate the city. I think adding more objectives would definitely add to the fun.

Good art, but lacking everywhere else. I enjoy the concept, but they breakdown timer confused me. Was I supposed to make it go down as fast as possible or as slow as possible?

Overall I hope to see more in the future, if you can get the gameplay as good as the art this will be awesome.

For me the Start button never went away so not sure if game win/lose conditions are in place. Really liked the art style and think it could polish up nicely. I thought the buildinsg were too hard to break and were too easy to avoid altogether. I also never found the ocean =(.

Fantastic style and animation, however the gameplay itself was rather boring.

Cool Idea, never managed to hurt a person as they run like superfast mouses, but building damage was unavoidable :D

I think it lacks music and sound effects (explosions, screams) for it to be enjoyable.
And the goal of the game isn't quite clear. I just had the screen "bad monster" at the end.
Otherwise the graphics are really good.

Thanks so much for the feedback. Dev here, I kinda fucked up my time management as this is my first game jam and my first real project with unity. All credits to the game artists and animator they did a really good job indeed.

The game play is unclear indeed. The goal is for the breakdown indicator to never reach 0, by escaping the city.

People actually die when you walk on them, we'll add a splatter when they are crushed, later.

Also we probably will make a balanced difficulty, with a more informative UI and probably other features to make the game interesting and challenging.

Love you guys!

I really got mesmerized by the graphic's part. The monster animation is really smooth, the movement well coordinated considering the dimensions of the beast and the scenario is colorful, modern and nicely detailed. You guys could have given it a soundtrack and a few blood cause it's inevitably to smash a couple persons along the way to the sea.

We need to hug clumzilla! Nice art & animation. It's a pity there is no music :(

Obviously I had to try a game called Clumzilla, especially upon seeing the main screenshot?! :D
Really fun game, the monster animation is on point, so good :)
It seems a bit too easy to win though, I wish the clumsiness was even worse, or the end condition harder maybe.
Anyway great work guys!

It was a nice twist on the monster killing everyone scenario. Was fresh man! Great graphics too! It was a smidge too easy for my liking though.

Nice concept and art. It actually reminds me at my own entry, as both lack of sound and good win/lose conditions, but are tons of fun to play (and create!). Good job!

This is so cute, love it so much! ;D Amazing enrty!

Really nice the Jelly Baby style monster and animations.Being able to nudge a building and it not fall works well with the game play idea.

Love the Zilla model and animations. Why are those people running towards me though? :)

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.
