Jam Judge

Nice little game! I included it in my Open Jam compilation video series, if you’d like to take a look. :)

Would not have noticed the sprites changing and how the game was related to the theme had I not read your reply to frodewin and then actually looking at the sprites really closely. I did use the same interpretation in one of my minigames though, so of course I approve :).

The bindings are a bit unfortunate, as the keys W A S D are all bound to something within my browser (d for example closes the current tab, and without thinking that was the first button I pressed after opening the game). I guess it was a ploy to get me to play and win as Trump! It's pretty barebones at the moment, but it is a complete game and I could see myself getting a laugh out of it if I had someone to play with.

I don't see the jam topic reflected here. The game itself is neat, but couldn't catch me for long. The game's theme is a bit dated, was this made last year?

@frodewin I'm interpreting the "Leave a mark" theme as "leave a physical mark" hence the sprites changing as damage is taken. 

My original plan was to have a roster of people from the senate fighting each other, but unfortunately I ran out of time. The first two sprite I made were HRC and DJT just because of how iconic they were.
