City Smash!

by daydalus - Jam Entry

City Smash! is a fast paced beat-em-up where you play a huge monster wrecking havok on a city. Do battle with soldiers, tanks and helicopters. Crazy explosive physics.

Note: Unity in Chrome crops the game. Play in another browser (Firefox, IE, Safari, etc) for a better experience.

That was way more fun than it should have been. One of those things where its easy to critique, but honestly, it was fun and I played for a long time. Good work!

Wow, I actually really enjoyed it! The controls and camera work could use some tweaking BUT I loved just jumping left to right and then timing my down punch attack perfectly to shoot down and crush the humans or tank below me. There we some nice moments awesome! When I landed a perfect hit to a helicopter and it blew up nicely! I like the concept and the execution is really interesting, nice job!

Ha, there's a lot to like here! It feels metal/hardcore and while it's not polished there's a great sense of motion and weight with your attacks. Good job!

That was a wild ride. The over the top, explosive action made it fun to play. I enjoyed playing it far more than I thought I would by just looking at it.

182478! I had a "blast" playing your game! The movement just feels so good, and the missiles and explosions are hilarious. One bug: you can teleport back to the center by pressing space at any time if you only use the dashes.

Excellent work.

Neat game, fun to play, though the smash attack didnt seem to work for me? I included it in part 31 of my Ludum Dare 33 Compilation video series, if you would like to take a look :)

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 ( 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.
