MrPhil says ...

I found it very hard. I got about 1/2 way down before throwing in the towel. I like it.

dstrysnd says ...

hahaha. this is awesome.

Notch says ...

Hehe, is that a reference to Flight of the Conchords?

I beat the game, btw. Very fun!

edit: No, I didn\'t. omg. =D

demize says ...

Innovation gets N/A, because you said that it was a copy of a game, but I don\'t know if that\'s true, so.. :P But it\'s a hard, fun game.

jolle says ...

Cute but hard. Feels like collision box is a bit too big, but maybe I'm just bad at this.

Jach says ...

Fun, challenging game. Good job!

edwardoka says ...

Awesome. Zombie kittens, owls, and cake! This to me is what LD48 is all about. Humour, pace, challenge. I didn't put it down until I'd completed it.

Endurion says ...

I like it. Very nice.
A lot of cute little touches that make it funny.

matrin says ...

Kinda hard. I couldn't finish the zombie level.

Frimkron says ...

Kept me playing for ages - simple but very effective gameplay. The appearance of a second level was a very pleasant surprise. Some kind of fullscreen mode might make it a little easier on the eyes.

kutani says ...

This reminded me a lot of Yahtzee's "The Art of Theft", both in graphics and execution. That's pretty cool. First level was just challenging enough, but the hitboxes on the zombies made me quit. Way too big; too many times I had a clear jump over but died anyway.

Still, quite nice.

Codexus says ...

I couldn't get into it, it was just too hard and frustrating and the window is so small it's hard to see anything. You get extra audio points for the cool robotic voice though.

Hamumu says ...

I really liked it, but like MrPhil, it was crazy hard. It was fun in that I kept learning a little more and getting a little farther, but then one bad jump ruined it. I too gave up before I could make it all the way down. Maybe 3 hit points would be nice? But it was really cool and stylish and funny.

keeyai says ...

Great FotC reference - 5 for humor for that + kittens.

Morre says ...

Bloody excellent. Nicely animated, superb pixellation.
Gameplay is good fun and surprisingly long-lasting.
Zombies, references to Flight of the Conchords, Portal, and whatnot - this is a dream come true. This would most certainly win if I was the lone judge. :)

Mind you, after failing a miserable amount of times on the second level, I just completed it in debug mode in the end.

wonderwhy-er says ...

Funny game. I think only one with easter eggs :D "Cake is unreal" :D Didn't got trough it all but got to middle of second building.

DrPetter says ...

Win! I love games where you can tell each level was made "for real" and with some intent rather than just being hacked up in a level editor using off-the-shelf tiles etc. Special functionality and one-off events are great to make things interesting.
I expected it to be a lot less forgiving than it actually was, too. Respawn points were an unexpected but appreciated boon.
Next time: use an in-game screenshot to represent it! I almost passed on this one because the title screen looked like a dull game ;)

pansapiens says ...

Cute sprites ! Great, detailed levels ! Excellent sound ! On theme ! Funny ! Plays well ... tough but not too tough. Great little game.

Deepflame says ...

Funny game, I had a good time trying to get to the end, though I didn't actually manage. (Time constraints, might try again later.)


Sivart13 says ...

I got too annoyed to ever make it to the second level. Why does your dude move so slippery-ly?

LDT +0245

Local Time: 7:45


The plan was to get up at 7 (LDT+2) check the theme and be disappointed, think about the theme in the shower and during breakfast. Instead I did that without the disappointed bit, The Tower was one of my favorites. 😀

Leftover idea if somebody wants it: you play a giant eye at the top of a tower, kill pesky hobbits before they get near your volcano.

Breakfast of champions

Got to go, this game isn’t going to write itself.

Well, as Ed Murrow would have said: Good morning and good luck.

Press ups

Last meal before the games start.

Only 8.5 hours to wait, most by sleeping :P.

Owls should open the contest
