I don't really get it to be honest.

I understand that firing is random and the spell effect is random, but I don't seem to take damage and I can only move right and jump... So where I get to the right of the screen, I can't do anything...

Maybe update the game description (if that's allowed) or just update the comment section here with a few more details.

If nothing else, you at least managed to release something to the jam, you've done better than most of the other applicants.

I am glad to read your comment.
In fact we are french and we mess by having our move hotkeys on "AZERTY" keyboards... ><'

The main feature was about the random firing. Each bullet have a special effect by touching mobs.
Here we had a sponge, if you touch him with water he will grow, with wind he (was supposed ><) to get knock back. 
We tried to implement a "oiled state", if he touch a oiled platform he turn into oiled form (we had the animation and all :( ) and become immune to water but weak against fire.

But we were  too slow to implement every ideas, next time will be better I hope ;)

Thanks for your comment. You made me smile ^^

Unfortunately, it seems like this game didn't come together like you probably hoped. I don't feel the need to go over its shortcomings, I imagine you're acutely aware of them. I do want to still congratulate you for turning anything in at all. 18k+ people entered this jam and just over 5k submitted. You may not be the proudest of your end result, but that's what jams are about; finishing the race and learning from your time running it.

Thanks mate for you comment. We appreciate it.
As you said, it s far from our first idea, but we gave our best and we are still proud, we did something, messy and not finished, but something! :)

I can not understand how the game works. The graphics could be better. Overall not a good game I'm afraid.

Developer

It has to afraid you mouhahaha!
As you can see, we ran out of time, a lot of essential features are not in the game.
The main idea was: Firing random bullet, each one have a special effect on mobs (fire mobs get bigger when they are touched by fire etc). But we were not able to implement every essential ideas to have a good game ^^

Anyway, thank you for your comment mate :)
