Egg Clegger

by pythong - Compo Entry

EGG CLEGGER!

Clegg the egg!
Clegg the egg and make it change it's shape. You win when the final shape is reached!

For every clegg, you get EggsPerience (short: eggsP)

Collect enough EggsP to level up and shapeshift!
Or buy helpers which are clegging for you, so you don't have to do it

The game is actually winnable, so just keep clegging the eggs! ;)

oh and btw, the counter stops counting when you reach max.uint in AS3, which is about ~4.200.000.000

Sorry for the egg puns :D

Nice game though!

Cookie Clicker for people with ADD. I'm a fan.

Very funny (and a bit unbalanced) idler =)

My fingers are sore but my soul is happy! good fun, great eggs!

Found a bug where if you are currently shape shifting and you click the shape shift button for your next, the previous shape will forever stay on your screen. not a big deal, didn't ruin gameplay

Silly four byte integers. I can't make it over 4 billion.
I was hoping it would overflow to negative 2 billion.

I didn't finish it but it was a bit too unbalanced. Didn't even have time to know what upgrades I was buying, just spammed whatever was available. Addictive, as most cookie-clickers out there.

i really like the idea of trading cost efficiency for time efficiency, i think convenience is something that games don't often offer as a game mechanic.

i also am a big fan of the humor :)

A cookie clicker-clone with changing the shape of the egg. Okay for people who likes cookie clicker :D Nice for a couple of minutes... I think fans of the original game could really have fun with it...

Well, not my type of game, unfortunately. I clicked the egg about 30 times or so and then I was just buying stuff. Not sure if that's a good balance. Some the puns were great ;-)

I'm not really a fan of the clicker games as there isn't much "gameplay", but this was pretty well done for a 48 hour contest.

This is a funny little game, but there is a large room for polishing and balancing.

I think it's a cool game if you come with a right mindset. As it often happens to me with cookie clickers, I thought "oh no, I should not like it", then I ended up playing for good 15 minutes. The silly humour really made me chuckle a few times.

Fun game! I liked the boiled egg :)
A detail: it's hard to read what's on the Radioeggtivity

Nice clicker. The shapeshifting was tacked on, but it's ok. :)

I found this eggceptionally fun, despite it running at around 3 frames per seggond after a very short space of time. The shapeshifting seemed almost an afterthought, but the egg puns made up for it. I could see this doing well on mobile with some eggpansion of the core ideas. Well done! :)

Idle games, my Achilles' heel... This is a pretty simple one, but I enjoyed it nontheless. I really liked the cartoony visuals and the progression felt alright. The puns are pretty hit and miss, some are funny and others are pretty meh. The fryed egg put a big grin on my face. :)
Good job overall!

REMINDS ME OF MY FAVOURITE GAME COOKIE CLICKER. HUMOR 5/5

The scaling on the prices makes it much more economical to just spambuy the clegger. I think what you needed to make the decision more interesting is to make the price increase as you buy more of one thing.

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.
