Attack of the Giant Mutant Lizard

Control a giant mutant lizard to eat people, stomp cars, and throw things with your mutant tail which has claws for some reason. Spend points on upgrades and new abilities and try to survive an increasingly deadly hail of bullets.

You can find an early playable demo at GameJolt.

In case anyone's interested in testing the Android version (decent phone recommended -- 4.1 and up required), here is a thing you may want to click on. I'm interested in seeing what devices have an acceptable frame rate as well as any other problems that pop up.

About This Game

I have decided to officially release this game today, and I wanted to take some time to say a few things about the game.


Unknown Aug, 3rd 2020 at 02:17

Hello, I am using a translator now. There's an error when a snake slips from the air and leaves the map through the ground. I'd like you to fix this a little bit. Have a nice day.

Unknown Aug, 3rd 2020 at 23:09

Your opinions and other thoughts can go here.

Unknown Jul, 31st 2020 at 00:23

Hello. And Bye.

Unknown Jul, 4th 2020 at 02:26

I play on a Lenovo Android tablet. For some weird reason, the game gets super laggy when I get to the city and beach part. It also glitches on the new map, the one with the snake. It seems the only area I can play on is the farm part. Please fix this(If you can, but try your best!). I think part of the problem is there is too many entities on the map at the same time all at once(have no idea why it's different with farm map). Plz fix.(But besides that, great game! Keep up the updates.)

Add a controls tab in options. I cant progress past first part of the city cause I don't know how to do the roll think it is showing.

ExtraMedicated Jun, 24th 2020 at 21:25

If you are playing the PC version, then the 'R' button will perform the roll, but only if you have unlocked it from the upgrades menu.

Unknown Jun, 22nd 2020 at 18:27

Great game dude ....what are you new game can i keep touch with it?

ExtraMedicated May, 11th 2020 at 23:08

Nah, I can't think of any good names. I've just been calling them creature 1, 2, 3, and 4.

How do I get past the skyscraper?

ExtraMedicated Mar, 27th 2019 at 22:21

You need to upgrade the "attack" skill until you unlock the roll attack. Then press 'r' to roll into the side of the building.

Unknown Feb, 8th 2019 at 07:25

who do i kill the ship

ExtraMedicated Feb, 8th 2019 at 12:49

You need to unlock the "hammer throw" ability. You can practice that move in the practice game mode.

Unknown Jan, 2nd 2018 at 01:44

will it be on ios/apple phones?Do you think it will come out on steam soon?

ExtraMedicated Jan, 2nd 2018 at 03:35

I wasn't really planning on making an iOS version, but it is a possibility. I don't own any Apple devices that I could test it on though.

I'd like to put it in early access on Steam within two months or so. But it's really difficult to give any time estimate. I will say that the finished game will be quite short.

About This Game

Hi everyone,

Today I am going to release this game out of early access (unless something bad happens within the next few hours such as a power outage or a ninja attack), and I wanted to say a few things about the game.

I want to thank everyone who has showed support by leaving comments or feedback (I even appreciate the criticism). I always figured a few people would enjoy this game, but I was surprised by the amount of positive comments compared to the amount of negative ones. Maybe that's just because it was in beta? I guess I'll find out soon enough.

Why is the game so short?

This was always intended to be a short game. It was partly inspired by the types of browser-based games I used to play on websites such as newgrounds. Just pointless little games with no real story and a simple goal. My thinking was that people would play for a little while, and then move on to another game.

What's the deal with that ending?

Yeah, I couldn't really think of an ending. Hell, I didn't really have a story to begin with. I tried to come up with some ending that would provide closure, but then I was like, "Screw it. Here's some jokes." That's why for this release, I have switched the order of the buttons on the main menu to arcade mode first and story mode second.

Why did I make this game?

I kind of wanted to play a game like this. But the Google Play store is filled with shovelware and cheap clones that exist only to display ads. The monster games I've seen were usually like, you touch something and it just explodes or disappears. (And I thought I was lazy.) So it didn't seem like anyone else was making any decent ones, so I figured I would have to make it myself. My advice to other aspiring indie game developers is, don't worry about what other people want to play; make the game that you want to play.

Version 0.8.2

A few of the people who played the mobile version have requested special abilities like breathing fire.

People (more than one person, at least) have been asking me about the progress on this game, so I think it's time for another update.

I recently modified my game to enable me to add translated versions of all the text in the game. All that's needed now is the translations.

Update 2018-11-25

A couple changes. Most notably, two more monsters. There's also a trailer which is already slightly outdated.

Updated Controls, and Plans for the FUTURE!

Hey everyone!

People (more than one person, at least) have been asking me about the progress on this game, so I think it's time for another update.

I made a change to the way the first monster's tail is controlled by the mouse. Previously, its position was relative to the point where you first clicked when starting to control the tail. I originally did it that way so that on mobile devices, the claws would not be covered by your finger. The mobile version will still work that way, but now the PC version will have the tail follow the mouse cursor directly. Hopefully that's a bit more intuitive for everyone.

I also added some support for controllers, but some of the menus may still need you to use the mouse.


I only tested with a XBOX 360 controller, so I don't know if others will work the same way. I still think it's easier to use the keyboard and mouse though. But for those who want to use a controller, the right joystick can be used instead of the mouse. I added a nifty crosshair so you can tell where you're aiming.

joystickcontrol optimized2

You can try the updated controls in the latest version of the demo:

Windows: -------> Demo -- Attack of the Giant Mutant Lizard 0.7.4 (Windows)

Mac: --------------> Demo -- Attack of the Giant Mutant Lizard 0.7.4 (Mac)

Linux: ------------> Demo -- Attack of the Giant Mutant Lizard 0.7.4 (Linux)

One other new thing is that I enabled Unity's Cloud Diagnostics service, so I'll be able to see all the errors that I'll probably be too lazy to fix.

So what's next for this game?

Despite how short it is, I've been working on this game for a long time, and I can't wait to start working on a new game. But before I do that, I'm working on adding one more monster, and a new map to go with it.

This next one is a giant snake that is able to throw things with its head and swim underwater. That's where the new map comes in:

snake2 optimized

Since snakes typically don't have legs, I'll need to think of some other attack moves for players to unlock. So far I have one attack.

This one:

snake1 optimized

I've also made an addition to the wildlife.

bear2 optimizedbear optimized

There's still a lot of work left to do on this though -- textures, AI, fish that stay in the water instead of floating through the air, etc.

What is the new monster coming to Android.

ExtraMedicated May, 17th 2020 at 11:46

The giant snake is broken on Android, but I'm planning to look into that issue today. I hope to release it sometime next month.

Unknown May, 16th 2020 at 00:33

Please do it now.

Unknown Jan, 22nd 2020 at 07:09

when are you going have the game ready what are you shooting for

ExtraMedicated Jan, 27th 2020 at 23:16

I want to have it finished this year.
I'm hesitant to set a specific time because I keep finding things I want to fix or add.

Unknown Jan, 4th 2020 at 06:55

Sorry I said movies instead of moves

Unknown May, 16th 2020 at 23:11

Can you do it right now

Unknown Jan, 4th 2020 at 06:47

You did a good job with snake I have a couple attacked movies you can make it do or should I say a couple different attack moves just like the Godzilla looking one that point outward a point up appoint the tail up on the snake and you spinning around until it's at maximum speed as a jittery and will launch humans cars green even airplanes across the map and when they hit the ground they will explode and his other one it's really cool you know snakes can constrict things well when you jump open in the air press it twice it will launch you into the air and you have press the button allows you to I guess fall and body slam well don't by slam with the snake make sure to Carl the snake up like to a circle shape and get it around the helicopter blades and then hold the attack button down and it will pin the helicopter down when it's got a cracked screen you can get off it because you don't want to kill yourself I've had that happen to me many times with game so what's your new game going to be called attack of the giant mutant alligator

ExtraMedicated Jan, 27th 2020 at 23:08

Thanks! I'm sorry I didn't read this sooner. This website's emails aren't working at the moment.
I did give the snake a body-slam attack and some other moves. Also, I'm working on adding special attacks for each of the monsters, which is something that a couple people have asked for. For example, one would be able to spit an exploding fireball, and you'd need to wait a few seconds before using it again.

The next game I'm planning won't be related to this one. But maybe someday I'll make a sequel or something.

Unknown Dec, 17th 2019 at 21:23

When is this new giant snake and bear going to be released and the map when are these updates going to come out do you have a set release date for these

ExtraMedicated Dec, 17th 2019 at 23:10

I don't have a release date planned. I still have quite a bit of work left to do.
And even though I can't wait to finish this game, I also don't want to release it before I think it's ready.
