Once upon a time, a great Copy Kung Fu master realized that his super important artifact was stolen by the Evil Ninjas!
And now he has to find it in the Evil Ninja Underwater Station... IN SPACE!

You are the Smartoninja - In order to return your ancient artifact, you invade to the base of Evil Ninjas and fight them turning yourself into any type of the enemy you meet: Fatoninja, Strongoninja or Speedoninja. Use your advantage!

WASD - Move
Space - Attack
1 2 3 or J K L - Transform into the SPEEDONINJA, STRONGONINJA or FATONINJA

(To skip the intro, press Space)

The intro scene is fantastic! For some reason the character is completely unresponsive to pressing the J, K and L keys, it rarely transforms for me. I didn't progress very far because I have to keep re-watching the intro video when I die and there is no way to skip it.

Henry00, Thank you for mentioning the bug! The intro movie is now skippable and the keys should work :)

Fun game! It was a bit difficult to remember which shape was effective against what. The controls felt a bit unresponsive and the enemies sometimes spawned on top of each other or on top of the player O_O

Great intro! It starts to get really buggy as more enemies join, but it's still a lot of fun. Love the "HOYAAAAH"!

Yes, definitely an amazing intro! The Gameplay was kinda confusing though, did not really get if its a rock-paper-scissor principle or everything is doing damage to everything.

Neat! Love the setting and overall mood. Potentially a really good beat'em'up

I loved that you had a whole opening in there! Very ambitious for a jam. The backgrounds were great and I liked being able to transform to do different attacks. Nice job.

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.
