Operation R.E.P.T.I.L.E.

by Jungle - Jam Entry

You are an agent who works for a secret organization that prevents Extraterrestrial Biological Entity attacks coming from aliens called Reptillians.

These aliens can shapeshift their bodies and walk among humans almost unnoticed. But their shifting skills are not perfect, you can detect shifted aliens by observing their behaviour like color changing, snake tongue or rapdly turn around. You can mark people to make their behaviour more remarkable.

Use your taser to capture alien Repitilians when they are covered. If they morph to their real form, you must use your gun to kill them.

ARROWS - Moves the agent
Q - Mark people
W - Capture Reptilians in human form
E - Shoot to kill Reptilians in real form

I unfortunately can't play your game, but I do like your concept, as it is pretty much the concept of my game! Haha, nice job completing LD!

There's a lot to like here! Cool MiB-like concept (who doesn't like to hunt evil aliens down?), nice clean graphics and good music.

This is an interesting game. I'm still not quite sure how to figure out who the reptiles are and who aren't. Maybe there's just something I'm not seeing here. But I liked the artwork and the idea. Good job!

Nice game.
But I can't tell 'REPTILE action' from 'failed to walk' as a starter.

Really good graphics + sound, gameplay was nice, I'm not one for waiting around too much, but I did have the option to take chances too which was great!

Apr 19, 2016 @ 8:33pm

It's a bit hard to identify the reptiles and man they can't be killed easily. Anyway: Nice graphics, cool music. You did a great job :)

I really like you main menu. And you had an excellent idea!

This game is pretty good, though i had some issues shooting the aliens after they showed them selves in the end.

Great concept and execution! One of my favorites of the jam so far!

Pretty clever spin on the theme to make the enemies the ones who shape shift, game was a lot of fun,

I Just wish i didn't reflexively hit shoot instead of capture so often, curse my fat fingers

Really cool concept. For improvement, I would make less time go down when the player tazes someone who isn't an EBE.

Nice job on the game. The game itself was good and I enjoyed it a lot but the best part for me was the main menu screen. That was fantastic.

Neat game! Loved specially the main screen xp Music and graphics are really nice! I just couldn't find more than two reptilians... I guess I'm a terrible agent ^^;

Anyways congrats on your entry!

I must have reptile dysfunction. I could never get more than 3 of those scaly guys. Great game!

I stared at the title screen longer than I should have...

Gameplay itself is fun and easy to understand, but still challenging to find all the reptiles. Animations are clean and stylish. I just wish there were sounds when you hit a reptile with your gun.

Apr 20, 2016 @ 4:13pm

Very nice concept, good looking art and interesting title screen.

Sadly I get a very low frame rate and this limits the game.

Apr 21, 2016 @ 3:03am

Those are some pretty violent aliens for sure. Very well done title screen, that must've taken a long time! Great entry, nice job.

Damn that manu rocks! Must have given you quite the trouble but it sure looks awesome! I just couldn't figure out how to track down those reptilians. Always got some inocent teased up lol.

I liked the graphics and the idea. The tutorial wasn't very helpful though. Maybe a tutorial level would have been nice to learn how to play.

All the humans are surprisingly unbothered by shapeshifting reptiles killing everyone though...

Very cool idea! I had so much fun taking out reptilian scum! The graphics were entertaining and the theme was silly. The gameplay was a nifty idea but it felt like I never got any hints towards 2/3 of the lizards. It made the game feel impossible to beat. Otherwise, really fun game! (Also I liked the menu screen haha)

Good game with an interesting concept. My best was 3 captured, 2 innocent kills and 1 alien kills. Keep up the good work.

Thank goodness you can also UNmark people, that would've gotten a smidge annoying otherwise ;-)

Damn cool game, I had fun playing this and improved a lot my peripheral vision!
Good work, keep it up!

What a clever little game! I loved this entry. The first time I played it, I wasn't quite sure what I was doing. But I started to get the hang of it! The tells were very subtle but it was really fun to spot them. Great job on this. :)

I love this enrty. Played more than an hour within last three days :) I only regret there's no game progress like levels with increasing number of reptiles or obstacles, or with skill improvements. This could be really cool full title!

Please, inform me when you release some post versions.

I've also written a short description of it here :)

Great concept. I had fun giving this a spin, but I think the balance is a bit off - for how subtle the tells are and the penalty for getting it wrong, it'd be nice to have a bit more time to just watch and learn.

I know it's month after the event, but maybe you'll be happy to hear that you're 3rd in my top 10 LD35 summary list :)

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.
