Hey guys, very good game, this "Klurby" only lacks the ability to fly, because a few platforms are hard to get on. Otherwise, decent gameplay, quite fun :)

The gameplay was fun! Interesting level design. The default shape reminded me of Super Meat Boy! :D
Sometimes enemies bullets would come flying through walls from far away, hehe. I felt it was a bit difficult to get a feel for the jumping and when I was actually in air and when I had landed.
Good choice of music.

I think I didn't understand what I needed to do to beat the game, I managed to suck a blue guy and started killing others but didn't get too far from that.
Good job!

It's fun. But why can't i shoot up or down, but the enemies can? ;) Jumping is also a litte hard to aim. Apart from that a fun game. Shift mechanic is well imlpemented. Music was catchy.

Nice entry! I like the kirby aspect of this game, it fits the theme well !There are still some problems with bullets getting through colliders, otherwise it was well made, good job !

You pass the green bullets with the green man (Hulk) :D

This was a neat little game. It had some problems though. Some enemies shooting through walls and I couldn't jump when moving forward on the stairs. Had to stop, jump and then move forward... this got me killed once or twice. I did like the 2D/3D mix between the character and the environment.

I have thought I need to pass the green bullets with mouse.
Nice game, the yellow spider is a little hard to beat but really enjoyable game

Hey, yeah it can be a bit hard to figure out how to solve some puzzles I guess, thanks for playing!

Also, I fixed a bug where I broke the checkpoints in the game. Also, I fixed a bug where the camera would get tilted after some transformations.

One of the best game I have played in this jam! Very fun, easy to play, a bit hard (it's good) and has the perfect fit for jam theme. Congratulations!

Fun concept, and pretty good level design :)

Could use a bit more feedback, though.

Took me a while to realize that it's a Kirby parody, but it's a really cool game. Too bad we were right at the end when my jump man failed to jump for me and we rage quit. Good stuff nonetheless!

Good game! If you used more consistent textures, it would have looked better.

Really fun Souls-esque-ian style game with a nice take on the theme. Shame I suck at it. The way the world slowly connects together makes for a very complete and cohesive and fun experience.

Nice ;)

I think if I really put my mind to this one I could beat it, but I lost interest pretty quickly. At one point it basically became a 3D bullet hell, which wasn't what it was in the beginning.

Played briefly on stream @ 3:13:08 : http://www.hitbox.tv/video/991443

Hey QuestionableQuality, it's fine to not like a game and losing interest.

However, it's not even close to a 3D bullet hell in the way the game is played. You successfully completed one puzzle out of 10, which was the starting puzzle and then you gave up.

It's a fairly long game, shame you didn't like it.

Even though I really like the theme concept of this game, there are a lot of issues with it, and wanted to point it out in case these would be helpful. The camera and the collisions in this game are pretty bad. Not helping with the gameplay that is already quite tedious. I don't understand why after we transform, the same type enemies are still attacking us. And why are there so many enemies around when the game is more of a puzzle? And even I kill them they respawn again? Overall very confusing game for me..

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.
