Nice work mate.

Not a bad start to something here! It feels like it needs more work, the camera is a little odd, missing sound effects etc. Also I think the tank should automatically slow down if you're not holding the accelerator.
One thing to note is if you have a joypad plugged in, the arrow keys won't work, you have to use the joypad! That took me a while to figure out.. quite difficult to hit the little enemies with the slow sword attack. I'd try to make that a bit more forgiving.. if you worked on this more it could be really cool.
Nice work Aenever! It's quite tempting to hit the little kid running across the screen.. it reminds a bit of the dog in duck hunt >_< I think by Wave 3 the speed is good and you feel like you're really playing, it should probably pick up a little bit faster because it's a little slow in the beginning.
It took a little figuring out but I got there... I'd suggest adding a special cursor rather than just the standard windows mouse, and make that cursor visibly change when you mouse over a secret. For some reason the bullets wouldn't hit the enemies.. not sure why.. but I could walk past them without dieing anyway.
I really like the smoothly animated sprites, the character designs are great. It's a bit of a mouse killer with the constant clicking, it'd be nice to be able to hold down the button to shoot. Maybe having random power ups dropped around the level to tempt the player to risk being hit for the reward of better weapons / bonus points etc.
This game is probably my favorite out of all the other entries.
Nice pixel art, consistent style, nice colours etc. GFX do their job.
I'd like there to be visible checkpoints, it would be nice to know I'm "safe" when I make it to certain points. The collision detection was maybe just a little too unforgiving, but at least it is consistent. Perhaps you could add teleport pads or something to help solve backtracking.
I didn't realise you could slide for a long time, so I spent a lot of time frustated with the thwomp-like things XD
Nice little Wario-Ware-Like.
I would recommend the usual things to improve, add SFX, Music etc. Also reduce the size of the players hit box. Maybe try to make the dodgeball a little less random, I kept failing until I stood in a corner and didn't move.
I like the concept, a kind of modern spin on the classic. The enemy spawning is a little random so it's partly down to your skill and partly down to luck on how well you do. A high score would be a nice feature to add.
Thanks for the comments! I'll make a trailer/video this weekend.
I'm curious how people found the difficulty / how long it took to complete / how many times you died.. if anyone wants to leave that kind of feedback ^_^ I had 10 levels / 3 bosses planned.. but it ended up being 4 and 1.
Looking forward to playing the other entries on the weekend!
I can understand CT don't want to retroactively change the rules/results.. as far as the prizes go I say meh! But to be clear, I think everyone was counting on the weighted averages to keep the scores realistic and when it didn't happen CT simply swept it under the rug and didn't even acknowledge it until pressured to.
The creator of SCIME (long time, valued supporter of CT community) pulled his entry from the jam in protest, presumably because he sacrificed hours of his time with his new family to work hard on his entry and then lost to a game anyone could make in less than 30 minutes..
Likewise, there came a point during the jam where I thought to myself "I've already spent hours on this.. I can't stop now (the fallacy of sunken costs XD) I'm going all in and it will be worth it when I win!" this is the lie I told myself when I turned down chances to spend extra time with visiting friends and family etc. when I went to bed at 2 am and got up for work at 5am..
What I'm saying is I worked hard, so did the Authors of Outpost 56, Timers Overdrive, I Bearly made it, Escape, Whale Wars, The Greys are Here etc. all of which weren't just a little bit better than the winner, but were objectively, way better! I would have been happy to lose to any of the quality/real entries.
I'm not gonna lie, I was kinda seething at the results when they were posted.. which is why I'm only posting now, it leaves a bad taste for all the real creators, the people that CT should back.. When people ask me what Fusion is capable of I guess I'll link them to "MNasons"?
I probably won't enter anymore comps because (I know, my choice, my risk) I derailed my serious money making (hopefully) project to partake in a rigged game. The one silver lining was this comp helped me to realise how hard I can actually push myself in such a short window.. so at least there's that!
Clickteam and Itch.io staff will judge each game and provide 40% of the score, 60% comes from the user votes.
QUESTION: Regarding the judges scores, were they implemented and when? Can we see what the judges scored us?
