Description Bears have evolved the ability to shapeshift into anything (or anyone) you can imagine! (Or maybe your eyesight is just really poor?) Either way, one wrong step could be your last in the randomly generated world of Super Bearland. Hunt those beasts down before they hunt you! Talk to people to get Clues about the Bear's location and disguise. Check objects to find the Tools you need to take the Bear down! But if you accidentally Talk to or Check the Bear, it's Game Over! Each round lasts 2-5 minutes, but no two games are alike with randomized levels, optional challenges, and a heaping helping of unlockables. Keep playing and experimenting to see if you can find them all! Instructions WARNING: Contains flashing light effects and "jumpscares" upon losing. If you are sensitive to either of these, disable them in the Settings Menu. Circle Pad / D-Pad: Move L / R / Hold Touch Screen: Fast Forward "T" in the top left corner: Toggle Typewriter Animation Bear Trap: Throw at suspected Bears to eliminate them. Bearometer: Determines if a Bear is in the current Town. Super Bear Trap: Eliminates the current Town, and everything inside. Decoy: Automatically prevents one Theft attempt. Notes Cool Features:
  1. Retro music & sound effects
  2. CRT-style scan lines
  3. Procedurally generated levels, with Autobalance
  4. Advanced Narrator system
  5. NES Font
  6. Kerning (Reduces empty space between letters)
  7. 6 unlockable game modes
  8. Unlockable Challenge Mode (stacks with other modes)
  9. Notebook (Automatically keeps track of hints)
And more!

180 Comment(s) SwanBot SwanBot Halloween 2017 Contest Runner Up I placed 2nd in the SmileBASIC Source Halloween 2017 Contest! Programming Contest Intermediate Programmer I can make programs, but I still have trouble here and there. Programming Strength First Year My account is over 1 year old Website Haha just wanted to sjare a funny glitch that happened to me, so I Wsd looking through the code and seeing how your aaving worked and stuff so I changed a number and saved (no I was not trying to cheat before anyone says that) but it triggered a SB wide glitch that hid every file other than grps's, now this scared me a ton cause I was like did it delete every one if my files?! (I looked through every projectvi had yes) and it was all like that, so I got out of sb and then vack on and all was back to normal and I was verer able to replicare this afain so I have no way to show or prove any of this but it did happen and it was very scary, my own guess is that it was the sata and it messed with sb but who knows maybe someone will fi.d a way yo replicate and it will become the new sb troll glitch. Anyways that's about all I think.. 12Me21 12Me21 Syntax Highlighter Received for creating the code syntax highlighter on SBS Night Person I like the quiet night and sleep late.

Programming Contest Third Year My account is over 3 years old Website Amazing game! The sprite work and art style is fantastic and the gameplay is addictive and fun! But the thing that I am most impressed with is the atmosphere, due to the way the game is played, when you get mauled by a bear, you never see it coming and it gets me every time with that jumpscare!

Helper Received for being very helpful around SmileBASIC Source Achievements Amazing Contributor Someone thinks I'm an awesome person who has done so much for the community! Achievements Yeah I think it's unfair that you can spawn in the same town as the bear, since it's just random chance and you're forced to do something in the starting town to even make progress. kantackistan kantackistan It is guaranteed that your first action (Talk or Check) will not be a Bear - even if you move around first. Anything past that is fair game though! MasterR3C0RD MasterR3C0RD Helper Received for being very helpful around SmileBASIC Source Achievements Third Year My account is over 3 years old Website osu!

(Also 12me21 I was finally able to reproduce that issue regarding the Walk Away Twice challenge. That'll be fixed in 1.0.3) Am I able to upload patches while we're mid voting?

Hobbies Night Person I like the quiet night and sleep late. Express Yourself Zelda Is Awesome! I love The Legend Of Zelda! Express Yourself I lost a round of the two-bear mode game. It counted it as a win for me, despite the bear score going up. I went from a ten to eleven win streak. kantackistan kantackistan Good catch, I'll patch that up. That's what I get for adding winstreaks right before uploading MochaProbably MochaProbably Expert Programmer Programming no longer gives me any trouble. Come to me for help, if you like! Programming Strength Night Person I like the quiet night and sleep late. Express Yourself Drawing I like to draw! Hobbies There should be bear repelant, so it moves the bear to a new location. And if there’s only one town that isn’t emptied you can say “The Bear Has No Where To Go!” or something Krondelo Krondelo Pretty good idea actually, but I can't really think of an instance where this would be useful or add much to the game. Unless it was used against the player. If you knew where the bear was but not if it was a person or an object you could move it, but then you would be in the same predicament. Still kind of a cool idea. I think there should just be a challenge mode where the bear moves after you visit X number of towns. Gale_Storm Gale_Storm Video Games I like to play video games! Hobbies Night Person I like the quiet night and sleep late. Express Yourself Zelda Is Awesome! I love The Legend Of Zelda! Express Yourself Quick question though. How are longitude and latitude lines handled? Did I do something wrong? I was in a situation where: >I attempted challenge mode (don't pass by the bear twice) > I was in the bottom left corner of a 24 room map. > I explored the bottom 2x2 square there; on the bottom row, second from the left, I found out that the bear was somewhere to the east, implying that it wasn't in the two columns on the left of the screen (Because otherwise, it would be to the north or west). >I believe it was the middle row where a mermaid told me that the bear was on the same line of latitude. Since latitude lines are horizontal, I assumed the bear was on the third row, to the east. >I continued exploring the rest of the two columns to the left, but I died soon after. I didn't return to any towns. The town I died at was unexplored. It wasn't even on the the third row, but the second one. When it says pass by, does it mean passing by the town it's in by entering a town adjacent to it, or does it mean by entering the town the bear is in and leaving without catching it? Am I misinterpreting what the game meant? OR...are there liars in the game? Maybe I'm mis-remembering or maybe I wasn't paying attention? 12Me21 12Me21 Syntax Highlighter Received for creating the code syntax highlighter on SBS Night Person I like the quiet night and sleep late. Express Yourself North/south/east/west means relative to the current town. So if someone says the bear is "to the east" that means it's in one of the columns to the right of the one you're in. Passing the bear means that you leave enter the town that it's in. I suspect that whatever keeps track of this is broken, because I've had situations where a person has told me that I've passed the bear more than once, and I couldn't find it in ANY of the towns that I had explored so far. Perhaps the pass count doesn't get reset between games? kantackistan kantackistan Directions are generalized. If someone says the Bear is South of you, that means any town lower on the map - even ones not directly below you. Passing the bear just means you've visited it's town, whether or not you've left the town or not. (There is a Challenge that tracks the number of times you've walked away from the bear, but that's different from the Pass hints. My fault for wording them similarly, sorry!) I'll spend today stress testing the pass system to make sure it's working as intended, including resets between games. Krondelo Krondelo That was how I perceived it, though I didn't strictly test it. So, if you were in the bottom left town and someone says "The bear is somewhere to the East". Then it could be in any square except the column you're in (a.k.a. the squares above you). Correct? kantackistan kantackistan That's correct. kantackistan kantackistan Ok, I tried playing a bunch of games with nothing but Pass hints... It looks to me like the pass system is working, even after switching game modes and playing multiple games in sequence. I think it might just be me doing a poor job explaining what a pass means? If it keeps acting up for you, let me know. Gale_Storm Gale_Storm Video Games I like to play video games! Hobbies Night Person I like the quiet night and sleep late.

Hobbies SCARY i got eaten by a pez dispenser. kantackistan kantackistan I want this post as a back-of-the-box review. Krondelo Krondelo Dude this is really well made! Very impressive work, and it's actually very fun and creative on top of that. First game the bear got me, I totally knew it was going to be the bear but I used a trap on an invisible man first and killed him ;( Second game I won. kantackistan kantackistan Hey don't worry, they'll never find the body. Krondelo Krondelo Haha, yeah I love how the randomness creates humor. I trapped the bear and it was disguised as a Gypsy, go figure. 12Me21 12Me21 Syntax Highlighter Received for creating the code syntax highlighter on SBS Night Person I like the quiet night and sleep late. Express Yourself -I unlocked color set 1 and the market at the same time, and the ! icon got stuck on screen. -being nuked by the bear does not seem to reset the win streak. -I lost my last two decoys in one town, and the icon still showed that I had 1 left -The previous lose message is displayed when being killed for not saving -aVoided theme sound effects don't stop in the menu when you switch themes after using it -I suspect the "before <x> tools" challenge might be broken (but it's entirely possible that I just can't count) -I died in the "without walking past the bear twice" challenge immediately upon entering a room for the first time (It's possible that the bear was in this room and I didn't have any traps, does the game detect that you CAN'T win even though you haven't failed the challenge?) -In 2 bears mode, someone said I had passed a bear more than once, but I checked all the rooms I had visited and none of them had a bear kantackistan kantackistan Excellent bug report, thanks! I just uploaded 1.0.1 which should take care of all five of those. kantackistan kantackistan Ok! 1.0.2. fixes the before X tools bug. So far I haven't been able to reproduce that issue with 2 Bears mode, but the night's still young... That Pass challenge was actually working as intended, but worded poorly. (Tracks the number of times you walk away from the Bear's town.) So I rewrote the text. Mezmire Mezmire Video Games I like to play video games! Hobbies Drawing I like to draw!

Programming Strength This game is seriously amazing. I'm addicted to it now, so great job! kantackistan kantackistan Many thanks! I intend to keep working on this after the contest, so I'd love to know your favorite modes, any complaints, or bugs you encounter. Or even just if the balance feels off on anything. KingCo KingCo Avatar Taboo I didn't change my avatar for 180 days Website RNG Hidden Easter Eggs Intermediate Programmer I can make programs, but I still have trouble here and there. Programming Strength Now that i think about it, one time when i unlocked something in the game, the Warning sign sprite stayed on the screen until i unlocked something else. Unfortunately though i don't remember which unlock it happened on. Also, i noticed a misspelling when i checked an object, it said "Wothless". And my favorite mode has to be OZ mode or Warzone, purely because i get super tensed up. I can't wait to see what else you do with this game!

Got fixes for all of those. The notebook now has a listing of all your current challenges. With time I'll make it accurately track them all, but that might have to wait until after the contest.
