Shapeshifting

by Tooichi - Compo Entry

I started kind of late,
at some point i realised that i won't be able to finish the game, so i just slapped what i managed to create into... a weird platformer-like thing :P

And... the yellow-ish faces are the end. I'm disappointed with myself :(

But still, had to upload something at least ;)

Well at least it was worth playing to the end there. Good pixel art and it was quite challenging to get through that third level

Dude, your jump is a bell-curve.

It looks kind of neat especially that large monster, but the thing that bugged me the most was that I seemed to get hurt by things before they touched me. Felt a bit cheated upon death.

Art wasn't bad, you should take some time to hash it out a bit even though it is too late for the competition.

Art is nice. Too bad you couldn't get more done. I think the game is too punshing though. You get one shotted, ennemies dash at you AND hitboxes are really large. Please show more mercy for us players !

Well done for getting it in on time. But please change the jump arc if you continue with it. Check out the jump arcs of existing 2d platformers (especially the 2d Mario's) to get an idea for how they feel.

I was happy that this was a platform, but the controls felt really floaty and unresponsive, though I kept coming back for more pain so I could get to the last level, so maybe it was good that they were like that? I kept playing so I would have to say that this game was fun, just needs more polish!

yay! It was so hard! I had to rety like 10 times! Challenging! Well done!
Love the art!

I found myself cussing at the screen! That's how you know you are playing a video game! Good start to what seems like it could be a complicated game. Keep at it!

I couldn't get past the green worm in the beginning haha. :P It was so freakishly fast!
I like where you're going with the art style, nice mood.

Props for going through with it and getting something start to finish! :)

Apr 23, 2016 @ 2:34am

A bit unfinished, sure. But was still challenging enough to be interesting and fun! The jump was a bit "floaty" though. But I kept playing until the end, and had to retry each level at least a couple times, so you must've done something right :)

Did a great job at the gameplay, and the pixel art really have a cool feel!
It was cool to play until the end, I really hope you can still work on that!

the arts are nice, but it's a bit too difficult right from the start!

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.
