Grimzilla

by tomhunt - Jam Entry

You control a giant robot shaped like the puny humans' image of death. Bash their buildings! Also it is snack time.


v1.01.LDJAM - only breaking bugs fixed
- player, buildings are destroyed when they fall off the edge
- game restarts when player dies
- added spacebar so that mac users don't call up app switching

Was there any tutorial for the game?
I just kept mashing space to kill the soldiers but couldnt figure out why the buildings dont break (the scythe didnt work on them!)

The snacking grim reaper theme was funny though

Player movement feels very slow (bug? it's like, 5 pixels a second), so you're barely able to move around at all, and the enemies push you around a lot, so it's difficult to get where you want which gets a bit annoying. Your attack hitbox didn't seem to match with the animation either, but that's less of a problem, it still felt pretty easy to hit things.

Look of the main character was nice though, and the music was (if a bit short of a loop) enjoyable. Felt like I couldn't die though? There were eight soldiers shooting me for two minutes straight and I didn't die.

I like the graphics.

Didn't seem to work for me (smashing buildings and eating soldiers). Cool concept, though!

Hey, we have a similar concept ! ;)
I really like the 3d models and animations. Good job on this one. I also like the randomly generated levels, great idea !
The only minor complain is that the hit box of the attacks is actually way shorter than what the 3D model makes us think.

Really good job on this game.

Graphics, animation, sound, and style were all cool :) It was pretty fun too, but it wasn't long until I'd already done all the things you could do, and then that was it - so if there were more of an objective, that'd help with longevity. Nice work 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.
