Go Go Golem

by Gamescalation - Jam Entry

In 'Go, Go, Golem!' you play a golem which shapeshifts into different elemental forms.
For passing the obstacles you need to match the elements of you and the object.
The keys used are:

1 - Earth
2 - Ice
3 - Fire
4 - Thunder

You also can challenge others in our online Highscore!

Thanks for playing.

The Web-Player is sometimes not working and if it is our main menu graphic bugs around.
If the webplayer says something about memory press Strg + F5. This seems to fix it.

**We highly recommend using your OS's build!**

Quite a great game for the 48 hour compo submission.
Graphics wise the game looks very good.
Gameplay wise the game is easy to start with but becomes quite hard in the end(i ended up 5th on the highscore with the name knowndead)

Graphics are solid, but the gameplay seems like it could be more dynamic - jumps/ducks mixed in with the elemental changes would really push it over the edge. But overall a very solid entry.

nice grafics, maybe cuould be more dinamic. And some particles will seems much better. (All is better with particles xD)

First things first, awesome graphic style. But yeah, the gameplay can use more meat, try to add jumps, or a risk-reward mechanic. Overall, a pretty solid game

Neat idea and matched the theme of LD. I really liked what you did with the 3D background but I am surprised that the character did not match. Either way, Good job!

This is a great concept that fits well with the them. I wish there was more movement the player could do, but still challenging and nice visual game.

I like the ideia!

The game was tedious but overall caught the "shapeshifting" theme well. Good Job!

Nice animations and graphics. Fun gameplay, it was definitely useful having the transformation keys displayed on screen.

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.
