Cute little game.

There's this one helicopter that I'm just unable to get, though -- it's the highest one that appears above the second large collection of tanks. Is it purposefully out of reach or do I just suck?

I really like to throw away a beam of I dunno what! The graphics are still nice done even though it is simple. Simple but well done! :)

Nice graphics! The graphics suffered from scaling/resolution issues that made the line thicknesses vary wildly, but the art is charming enough that it doesn't hurt the experience much, if at all. I'm glad you didn't give in to the ruled-notebook cliche, which is overrated and adds too much noise.

Overall, great entry, congrats!

Durrr. p.s I think you left in a debug thing where if you press the C button it makes you teleport forward.

Haha, it's about time I found a game that's similar to mine! Whimsical second cousin of Godzilla, plus tanks, copters, and buildings. Cliché, but a solid formula for pure destructive fun! :)

Love the monster's design, and the ending gave me a chuckle. The parts where I was walking towards the tanks dragged on a little bit, but overall nice job!

Adorable! I love its tiny smile. :)

Derp is strong with this one. Reminds me of Rampage for N64, really good job, also I would love to see building destroy animation and music, solid entry as for me.

Simple but, is a good game :)

Would have like a goal, or to be able to have a high score. Overall and nice simple and fun game!

This was really cute ^_^. Kinda wish the breath attack had a sound effect (I can think of one noise note in famitracker that would do a good job). The flower at the end was a nice touch. I also appreciate that the tanks actually presented some level of annoyance, rather than being a complete pushover.

Simple, but well designed character and scenario. :)

Sometimes it's not running over here... "Preloading 53/60"... Then nothing happens.

That was adorable. Not much of a game, but an enjoyable experience.

I really like this art style. I may try to mimic it on my next game. Nice polish, the jumping / smashing felt perfect. The walking was just a little too slow... and why can't I destroy the helicopters yet? =P

Great entry; nice job!

Poor flower... :(

The graphics are really cute and very well done, even though they're as simple as can be. Sometimes, simple is just better... Great job!

Cute and amusing :) A bit short/simple, but it's obviously on purpose. A sfx on the fire balls would have been nice to have it a bit more polished!

Pacing was slow, but it was great, especially the art style!

A wonderful little game well done!

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.
