Dios Mio! Alien Invasion

by megalukes - Jam Entry

When a cute and innocent alien accidentally falls on Earth, there's nothing much left he can do but run from the panicking humans (and ocasionally shot them to death while getting bigger and uglier).

I really enjoyed this game! So I died like 20 times within the first second. Then I took a deep breath and got a score in the thousands! A little hard to master the controls since you cannot shoot and move at the exact same time, but that adds to the complexity. The morphing into different aliens was really sweet. Also cool intro

Great entry with a fantastic arcade feel to it! I wanted to push coins into my computer each time I died!

Great art and exciting music putting a nice mood to it! I really liked that you put in the threat from civilians running past you from behind as well, it gave it more depth and difficulty!

Great entry!

(PS: Nice bonus with the intro)

I've made almost 12K points) I like the art and pacing, but the shapeshifting happens too ofter in the late game

Really great art in this one. I like the shape shifting mechanic acting as the health, though maybe the animation is a little disruptive in the late game. Also, if I were to nit-pick, the BG could be a little more separate from the obstacles, since when it gets fast it gets hard to see them.

Very fancy art! Feels like some of the classic newgrounds games! Nice job!

Very fun game, although it gets crazy hard after a while! I especially hate those runners coming from the back! I also really like the graphics, and the music does a very good job!

Fantastic Arcade game with great sounds and music! The movement felt a bit delayed in response, but nothing too difficult to handle. The running humans were a bit annoying, but hey, that's part of the challenge, heh? Fun game to play with great arcade visuals and audio.

Graphics are incredible. and i really liked the music. It was difficult to predict when the civilians would run up behind you to attack, perhaps some sort of alert indicator would help as an improvment

Phenomenal entry for an LD. Great tunes, smooth controls, and clean graphics. Nice work!

Loved the graphics, audio, and the mood. Awesome game (especially for 72 hours). I also liked the short story snippet, well done guys! :)

Visuals seem to be quite inspired by Alien Homonid but a clean looking smooth game.

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.
