The Klik of the Month Klub meets right here on this very website on the third Saturday of every month at 4pm Pacific Time (taking daylight savings into consideration) for a two hour Klik & Play Showdown. Everyone who participates gets two hours to create something from scratch in Klik & Play. Abusing the stock objects is encouraged. If you really loathe Klik & Play you can use whatever game development platform you want. Two hours is a pretty tight time limit, though, so choose wisely!

Klik & Play is absolutely free to download, and learning it takes minutes, so everyone can get in on the action. Want to talk to your fellow Klikwreckers? Join us on IRC -- server irc.freenode.net, channel #glorioustrainwrecks. Join the mayhem!

Game idea

Greencard Adventures! Apply for permanent residency in the United States without it taking so long that you have to leave the country because your visa expires.

I wonder if you can leave a Klik & Play game running for 6 years.

JOUSTPONG 3D

It's...about as bad as I feared, but at least my custom 14-segment font looks neat.

left and right mousebuttons to flap. I suspect the directions will be exactly reversed for most people (kind of like if you do FPS inverted or "normal")

player 2 can take over from the computer at any time by pressing z or x to flap.

first to 10 wins

INCREDIBLE ODYSSEY DELUXE

"The greatest of Metroidvanias..."

"Truly, my masculinity has never been more affirmed than when I did 4, 294, 967, 296 damage to the last boss in a single attack."

"When I saw that powerup on a ledge, only to find it was higher than I could jump, my computer was rocked with several large impacts - four stars had just fallen out of the predawn sky and onto the top of this review."

INCREDIBLE ODYSSEY DELUXE is here! Hundreds of hours of gameplay! Dozens of abilities to unlock, each with multiple upgrades to hunt out! One thousand hidden missile expansions, 750 of which aren't accessible until after you beat the game!

DO NOT PLAY

The worst part is that there are like ten billion more "features" of MMOs that I hate that didn't make it in. I wanted to make a much much worse game.

Didn't finish a game, but got something playable.


Didn't originally plan to do KOTM, but I gave something a shot nevertheless. Top down walk around zelda style thing. Shame there's nothing to do in the game, but I'm falling asleep at my keyboard here so I have to give in.

Since I didn't give your last game a proper comment, I thought I should say something about this one first.

I thought it was neat the way the two games complemented each other. Games are fun when you are the person that has power, and you're usually using that power to blow shit up. Meh effect two makes its point a lot more ironically and better than LOSE/LOSE does, and the plus side is that it doesn't f- over your computer in the process.

But yes! Not as bad as you thought it was, and it made me think, so yay.

I also did it on my first playthrough. I think it's because of the game's similarities with Mario games. The haunted house, with ghosts that look like Boos. Getting outside and seeing that Mario-esque staircase made me want to jump off the very top, aiming for the tip of a flagpole that doesn't exist.

The pull of Mario mechanics is strong indeed.

DeceasedCrab's picture

Heh So, everything about

Heh

So, everything about the game was incredibly kludgey. Examples:

There are two random counters that increment a random number from 0 to 9 each second. When one counter hits 80 (can't remember the exact number) it populates another value from 1-3. That value determines what kind of customer is spawned. The customers have automatic movement toward the right via paths, and instructions to destroy if they hit the right side. They also have different speeds, managed by an every-30-millisecond timer event that manages speeds because KNP is so buggy.

A similar counter controls when the crazy lady appears.

The shaving and not-shaving mechanics were pretty tricky. I ended up having one shaver and not-shaver object that I just kept reusing, making them invisible for the first 2 seconds so you wouldn't see their initial animation go off. Originally I was going to have them come from the right, but you're only supposed to be able to kill them in the chair, so I made sacrifices.

Just about the buggiest thing in the game is the "Safe" condition, that counts your witnesses. It is SUPPOSED to end the game if you kill a customer and there is at least one other customer or one other crazy lady present. It USUALLY does and sometimes does not. In the end I got it mostly working, and decided that actually fixing the bug would make the game too damned hard.

And yes, I cheated on this entry. I started the layout a few days ago, recorded the sounds the morning of, and actually took around 3 hours for the physics. Sorry. IT WAS WORTH IT.

sergiocornaga's picture

Wow, thanks for the kind

Wow, thanks for the kind words. I guess I didn't like my creation so much because of its short length, and because I feel both the endings are just rehashing what I did in an earlier KOTM entry, Bluegirl.

That you said this game does anything better than LOSE/LOSE really pleases me! I worry it's mostly because of how annoyed I imagine Zach Gage would be if he read it. But, no harm in a little schadenfreude, right?

It was fun to figure out what to do in Music Party but after that it was sort of frustrating (though I did play it a couple more times to see what sort of score I could get).

There is something pretty sweet about all the applause I was getting in fruit contest AND it was educational in that it taught me to fear pirates.

ALL IN ALL: I got something out of this game, so I WIN. In your face!

Seconded, the last scene

Seconded, the last scene really made me jump. That was cool.

The introduction was very zen. Instead of actually doing anything I preferred to be nosed gently by the dolphins until I neared land.

Also, I'm really surprised that no-one mentioned the middle mechanic! Elvis giving you the power to fly, fuck yes, and it isn't just random chance, there's quite a bit actual skill to it too.

I really like that the non-dream form gives you invulnerability but a bad jump, and the dream form makes you vulnberable to everything but lets you go super fast and infinitely high. There's something quite poetic there too.

I'd really like to have had quite a few more levels of playing around with that, 'cause I think it was an interesting enough idea to take a bit more experimentation.

Arrg!

This was surprisingly addictive. I liked the the way you built in a bias towards not-shaving, and the random unavoidable Crazy Lady visits.

It's still possible to play the game as "Johnny Depp's Super Friendly Shaving Simulator", though, which seems a little unauthentic (dun dun dun!) and probably not what you intended. Perhaps you could have added in something like a "Murderbar" which rises gradually and needs to be satiated with an ever-increasing number of not-shaves?

The sound effects were great.

Malefact's picture

REVERSE PSYCHOLOGY AHOY

I don't think you actually need to add in more features, but if you actually put some number counters in game (like level, power etc) and added in some more abilities, and random new enemies for every level, you'd give just enough terrible bait to make the player contemplate keep playing just because.

I could already feel the sick pull, and was afraid.

Malefact's picture

Murderbar

Here's a version with Murderbar.

Not sure that it's an improvement, actually. I think I prefer that in the original version the game doesn't explicitly force you into delcious pie-making. It also makes the game harder.

(P.S. Having opened up the game I appreciate how complex it is. I'm still not quite sure how the people actually *arrive* in the shop to begin with).

Thanks for clearing that up.

Thanks for clearing that up. The timers were sort of confusing, plus I couldn't understand how the customers arrived without an obvious "create object X at point y", which was bugging me. If the customer objects on set paths with speeds regulated by the counter than that helps explain things (I didn't think to check them, bluhhh).

It like that the "safe" condition is kinda buggy: it's a nice feeling when you think you're going to lose but don't, and is a bit more authentic (they're not ALWAYS going to notice you, surely? Maybe they're reading a olde fashionde paper, or casually looking around the shop). The only thing that is sort of frustrating about the way you rig the function is that witnesses seem to be counted from the moment they pop on screen, rather than when they walk through the door - so sometimes it's completely a matter of luck whether or not someone walks in on you as you're makin' pies and then GAME OVER. Though I'm not exactly sure how you'd work a detection box into the mix.

As for cheating, I thought that KOTMK was not so much strictly about time limits as the extra impetus the event gives you to make cool shit anyway?

EDIT: This game reminded me of something, and it was bothering me, but now I know: those chunky handheld electronic games that used to be all the rage before the gameboy took off. This would be totes ace on one of those.

Actually someone really ought to make a game called "Every Jeff Minter Game" that literally combines the mechanics of every Jeff Minter game into one insanely ambitious and unplayable catastropiece. People would think it was a joke game, like "har har it's probably just pong in front of a psychedelic background with a sheep for a ball", but the joke would be on them as they controlled a headbanger pushing a lawnmower around a Tempest web while changing the direction of gravity, bouncing lasers off of a movable ceiling at screen-filling mutant camels, avoiding the XY Zapper, and collecting friendly beasties before they're turned into zombeasts.
