Dungeon Tricker

by greeboCherry - Jam Entry

Your dungeon has been invaded by greedy adventurers. Your minions are not strong enough to face them all at once. But fear not, Master! You can change the shape of corridors in your dungeon, splitting their parties apart and picking them up one by one. Or make them wander in there for ages, until they starve.

How to play
Use mouse to move walls and spawn minions. You can spawn minions only between waves and only near fire camps.

Use WSAD to move camera, mouse scroll to zoom in and out.
Press 1,2 or 3 to change game speed.

Don't let your Boss get killed. Have fun.

WARNING - Poor optimization, unplayable on most laptops :(


Game made by Marcin KozieĊ‚ and Maciej Jaroszewicz

I'm surprised you didn't include a graphics category, because I like the lighting and atmosphere of the dungeon. I like the Dungeon Keeper inspired game, which feels combined with tower defense. I didn't feel much need to move the walls though, which was the only sign of the shapeshifting theme in the game.
During the tutorial, I was put off by having to click "Shut Up" to learn more about how to play. I don't want it to shut up, I want it to continue talking to me so I can learn the game.

A nice little game, but I think its a little bit off-topic. However, the graphics are really nice, the sounds arent bad either. I like the voice of your boss.

I like the game but my minions kept disappearing and there is almost no connection to shapeshiftig theme.
Graphics are really nice for a ludum dare project but after a while jumpy animations gave me a headache.
I am impressed that you did this just in a few days. Good job!

Brilliant! I loved every aspect of it. I like how I'm not the only one who did level shifting in their game

I AM IN LOVE WITH HOW THIS LOOKS. IF U HAD ENTERED IN THE GRAPHICS CATEGORY I WOULD GIVE YOU 70/10

It looks pretty and fun, but i didn't really get how i could position the units to win, and the enemy units all got stuck inside a door after the 2nd wave.

Astonishing graphics - not for my computer, tho. Also, nice replayability.

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.
