Unhero

by oxediusfex - Jam Entry

You play an evil goblin on his way to get back some of the most legendary treasures taken by the vile heroes of this world. You must take back the epic Hexaforce and the powerful loyalty gems from the Castle of Goods ! Good Luck !

+ Controllers supported !
+ Randomized end location !
+ Game only made by 2 guys so.... ^^

IMPORTANT :
The goal of the game is to get the final item hidden in the castle.
You play the vilain and like most of the old school villain you can't
attack ( attacking is the hero job ! ) but they will get hurt when they
touch you. Also they will be knockback and they will be invulnerable
for a short time so be aware of that !

Does not look THAT great, but plays pretty fun. :D

The graphics are pretty darn gorgeous, however the movement is really floaty and it's hard to tell what to do. Also I fell off the edge to the right and had to restart the game. Clever idea making them go left though!

Quite fun to play at first, but a bit shallow.

I also ran to the right first and fell off and had to reload. Interesting implementation of the theme though.

The character is a bit difficult to control but this one has potential. :)

I like the concepts. The artwork looks really nice too, love the trees and the characters! It feels like the "heroes" don't have to actually wind up their attacks, so they feel imbalanced combat wise- a tighter attack window and hit area would have made the combat feel a lot fairer.

It's really easy to die. Too easy

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.
