Super Sugar Juice Man

by antishow - Compo Entry

Back before you decided to settle down for an office job, you used to be the face of every kids favorite cool beverage — Sugar Juice! For years you were front and center in an ad campaign that had you smashing through every wall in sight. However like all ad campaigns, the sun eventually set on your spokesperson career.

Then everything changed.

There was a big initiative at the office to renovate the building, but due to poor planning and buearaucratic mixups, none of the new walls included any doors. You arrive to work one day to find everyone has left (or maybe they just couldn't get in?), and a mysterious note:

Hey Buddy!

We're gonna need you to go ahead and smash all these extra walls we built. We want to go back to an open, ONE ROOM, kind of concept.

Thaaaaaanks!

-Bossman

Determined to seek answers and smash walls, you set out on a quest to restore your office back to One Room.

Nice idea, looks pretty neat! Might be better if there were fewer boxes, or if you could smash them in to nothingness, the boxes tend to get in the way after a while.

That truly made me go to the end of the game <3
Super gameplay, feels pretty innovative in a way.
Nice entry, congratulations =)

Haha, cool game. I thought I was being pretty innovative with my game being about making multiple rooms into one room, but you did the same thing! Only with more action! Gah :D

The funniest game I've played so far, the feedback when we smash some walls is really good with these voices! It could really become a great game with some combos and if we were not slow down so often, kinda break the fun ^^
Well played for a compo!

Smashing the walls was really satisfying! I ended up getting caught in some debris and couldn't move. Still fun though, nice job.

Oh-Kay!
Ah-Good!
Juice-Time!

Cool idea. I had trouble with the debris, and would have liked maybe a little vertical platforming, but still a solid entry!

That was entertaining. When the character said "Juice Time" it made me laugh. Cool mechanic. Having combos for going through multiple walls or a room that you aren't supposed to break down (a bosses office or something) I think would be fun. Well done overall and keep up the great work. I hope you continue development

Lollll funny game. Just sometimes I get stuck between boxes when I'm moving back, which made the controls a bit frustrating. Maybe a special power that blasts the boxes away?

And definitely more boooommmmm when we hit the wall would be great!

I am sorry I couldn't resist to say this. This was definitely a juicy entry! I love the balloons that pop up with actions and it makes it feel indeed like I am a retired super comics hero. Great humor here and actions, love the one room as a goal instead of a concept.
