MouseBunRoo

by AscendedLudumDare - Compo Entry

My wife and I got talking about her fav pet (our two bunnies) and how she would make a game about them, she has never played a game since she was 10 so it was great because i was looking for a child's mind (in terms of games) and we came up with this.

This was a last minute effort only realising LDGJ was on the day the theme was being announced, started more than half way in, and knew i had work and couldnt do full jam.


AIM:
Reach enough points to shapeshift into the Roo and earn big points!

You get 1 life!
Any collisions as the mouse is game over.
The Bun enjoys double points and can beat the cat but the fox and car will surely hurt *ouch*.
Becoming the Roo earns triple points!

My game is best played responsively on Chrome in landscape with keyboard arrow keys (L R U), but i've got the touch/swipe working on several android phones (all i have sorry iPhone owners) but my latest phone (HTC One M8) fails to follow your finger :( more time needed!

Hah! My wife actually came up with my theme, too! Sadly, I couldn't get the web one to work. Art is smooth and stylish. I wish you did some music, because it really affects mood to be honest. I myself spent time playing piano, etc. because I thought no way I'm conveying mood without it. I say go for some music next time and you will have something very nice.

@jdmazz thanks for the feedback on mood, i get it totally!
With time I am sure i would have done a lot more, animations and some tunes were the next on the todo.
Cheers

Nice game! I had fun playing, but I also got stuck (at 101 points). Cute graphics, but perhaps next time you could choose a color palette and a line thickness.

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.
