These are my favorite games so far from the Game Maker's Toolkit Game Jam (2017). 776 people entered so there are definitely still some gems out there. Anything stood out to you? Post it below!
Water Gunner - CowThing: Defend the forest against fire enemies! Use your water gun to put out the fires and water plants. Plant seeds to grow plants! Your water is also your health, be careful when your water is low. https://cowthing.itch.io/water-gunner
Light Well Fountain - Caresi Labs: A platformer where you switch worlds on jump. Find the missing objects and restore the balance. Find your heart <3 https://caresi-labs.itch.io/light-well-fountain
Warden - Evan E Gibbs: The game is all about a Mouse with a shield, and I tried putting in as much as you can do with that as possible. The shield lets you block things, of course, but you can also hold it above your head to float and hold it down to bounce off of dangerous objects (and go higher than you can normally jump). https://itch.io/jam/gmtk-jam/rate/159677
Trouble In Space - Togimaro & Hygon: In this game all the actions are related to the rocket engine of the spaceship. You can kill enemies and open doors if you have enough speed. Enemies damage your engine but you can repair your engine by killing enemies. You can pick up an explosion powerup for your engine. Some enemies are only vulnerable to explosions, but the explosion power damages your engine. https://itch.io/jam/gmtk-jam/rate/158821
Command Prompt_ - Cyber Twilight: Command: prompt_ is a shooter that forces the player to manage their actions: if you shift the game to an easier mode by shooting enemies that favour you, your score multiplier will decrease. If you want to increase it again, you'll have to shoot an enemy with an effect that’s bad for you - like, say, reducing your own movement speed. Balance between difficulty and multipliers to achieve the best score you can. And if, for some reason, you want to quit this awesome game, you know what to do… just shoot something! https://cyber-twilight.itch.io/command-prompt-
