let's face it: i can't program anything. i used a lot of engines,but no one of them really ispired me.

i wanted to test construct 2 features, make some new mechanics and,maybe, gets some feedback on my game...
would i never done that...
construct 2 is less complicated than unity or other engines, but also it is more limiting!

the game was going great when, suddently, construct went mad:
loop sounds,nosense deaths,disappearing layers. i was really desperate! With each modification, I created another problem!
i was in the middle of deleting everything,but thinking about my 47 hand made sprite changed my mind. For the first time in history,it was progam's fault!
i was going to publish the non-working game with some explanation about what just happened! at this point,i re-made the game from scratch on scratch (sorry sorry sorry...). It was so hard adapt my ideas whitin the limits of scratch 2, but at the end everything worked fine :D

What I Thought Went Well:
i just made an arcade game with unique mechanics,in less than 3 day in a very limited platform!

What I Thought Didn't Go So Well
the game polish is really bad,i couldn't make some procedural music for the menù ,the game was supposed to have increasing difficulty and declining time


maybe i'm not winning any magic fluffy swaggy bag, but I've got news for you,my little friends:despite everything i had a lot of fun pressing random button to shape the slime,and watching him dancing :)

Come on, I said i can't speak english. That's it.

If you have some issues,please contact me

This was a great way to end your submission! I am sorry to hear you had such a rocky start to your Jam experience, but the most important part is your learned something and had fun doing it. Learning a brand new engine is one of the hardest things you can do even more so when you have very little time so I am impressed with your resolve to finish! 

I will be playing the game now and writing up a small report for you as well!


thanks very much!

I hope you'll enjoy it!
