Boss M.O.B.

by Bitterdeath - Jam Entry

You are the raid boss. Protect your loots!

How to play

Q - Basic attack - instant targeted damage
W - Area of Effect attack - delayed; powerful area of effect

Healers can heal and resurrect so be sure to deal with them early.
Casters do a lot of damage but don't have many HP.
Melee are tough to kill while they do a medium amount of damage.

Raiders will run away from attacks if they are able.

Can you defend your loots from a 5-Person group all the way to a 40-Person Heroic group?

Woah, that was really tough. And it was satisfying blasting the adventurers. Nice work.

That was really fun! The particle effects were really well done.

The nods to the MMO genre were quite nice as well.

Nice game, but maybe a bit too simple. But I had fun, I have to admit that.

The game is fun and the controls are easy to use. And the sound was also enough. But it lacks of music. It could great with "heroic" music. Also, the graphics could be better, specially the boss.

But as I said at the beginning, it was fun. Killing "heroes" with my attacks was great.

Overall, the game passes.

I like the graphics and the concept. Only wish there were more ways to deal with the raiders. I feel the game would be better suited for higher cooldown abilities, that you have to time correctly and use tactically, rather than abilities like Q where it is just a matter of how fast you can spam it. I had to stop playing before I reached 40 heroic simply because my hand was getting too sore from spamming Q.

Good work! You should add other powers for a next release ;)

Awesome idea! I really had a lot of fun with this. Great application of the theme. There was just enough strategy to keep it interesting without becoming overwhelming. I think you could expand this into something really special!

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.
