You - the monster.     The kid that needs to get scared.    The protective dad.

DOWNLOAD:

direct download (Game Jolt)

On the same page, you can also play the html5 version.

VERSION:

0.8.4 (updated on 8/18/2013)

GENRE:

Puzzle game!

NOTES!

This game has 8 levels with an increasing difficulty. Each room has new difficulties!

I'm working on a new version with better graphics, new levels and so on. But for now, it's already playable.

 

 

INFO ABOUT THE GAME

This game is my entry for the 11th GMC Jam.

BOO! is a game that lets you play the monster. You get a kick out of scared children, so you're looking for some.

Go to a place with a lot of kids and scare them! But don't get caught!

You'll also have to find clever ways to get the kids away from their parents... Like luring them with cute rabbits.

Some doors will only open when a pressure plate is pressed...

Hopefully you'll have fun playing the game!

 

P.S. I recommend playing the game until at least level 7, that's when it becomes really hard!

 

 

If you have the time, please try the game and maybe give a bit of feedback.

Reporting bugs is also appreciated.

Thanks for playing!

Well done. :P From the storyline, I thought this was based on Monsters Inc. somehow... but the gameplay is fairly original. It's like a maze game, except that the maze moves while you're playing. That's a fun twist.

I love the background music theme here. It's perfect for a not-so-serious monster game. But the graphics are rather simple looking... so that's an area for improvement. But they're not bad.

The overall construction of the game is good. I like how you incorporated the short tutorial into the game itself. And the level design progresses nicely from easy to harder. Fun game. And a very good Jam entry. :thumbsup: +1

COOL! I love this game!

Note that the y value does not fit on a laptop screen. I was lost because one row at the bottom I could not see.

Thanks chance and yellowbee!

The basic idea of 'monsters that scare people' came from Monsters Inc, love that movie  :)  (I haven't seen the University one yet).

But yeah, the actual game isn't based on the movie.

I never have time for graphics in the Jam. I'm pretty disappointed in that aspect of the game too, I had so many ideas for original obstacles instead of those ugly gray walls/blocks. But yeah, the Jam wouldn't be the Jam without the limited time :P

I plan on polishing this game further and make a html5 version of it.

About the screen resolution, you can choose fullscreen instead of windowed mode, which will allow you to see the whole game screen I think.

Thanks for the feedback! :thanks:

 

PS I would love to know how many levels you played. Can you tell me (in this topic or via PM)?

Oh right, the button is on the start screen, but you probably won't see it as it's in the down left corner. I will fix the resolution issue in an update.

And level 4 is where rabbits come in the game, so I recommend to keep playing :)
