Throw items at boxes to break them.

This game is interesting, well done! I like the connection between the LD's theme and your gameplay, very innovative.

Love the styling on this one. Surprised how tricky it was to get the aim right, not a flaw though.

Love it, the visuals are sooo cute and really polished. I agree with strkl in that the aiming is difficult, takes so long to spin into place! But other than that an amazing little game!

Fun game. cool atmosphere. Loving it despite the aforementioned difficulty in aiming.

Very good, i liked the comments that the yellow guys make :-). Aiming is a bit hard because i always expected the thing to be thrown *from* the arrow. I suppose putting the arrow behind the player would have been a better idea. Beyond that, the graphics are cute and the idea fits the theme nicely :-)

Really awesome game. I didn't have any problem with the aiming mechanic. I was able to WHOMP EM pretty good. Great use of theme as well. Rad art style, unique game mechanic, hilarious title, etc. THANKS FOR MAKING THIS!

Haha, if you want to see how your game would have looked if you were graphically unskilled with approximative mechanics you should check mine. That was a compliment, don't check mine. Your game is really cool, plenty of stars \o/

The collision detection seemed inaccurate at times.

Dec 19, 2011 @ 6:36pm

Ha, nice idea.

I love it! Polished to shining, with a sound core concept that fits with the theme, topped off with cute and fitting graphics. Very well done.

Fun little game. Great job!

Dec 20, 2011 @ 11:10am

Hahah I love this. Thought the aiming was great in my opinion, something different anyway!

Dec 20, 2011 @ 5:58pm

Pretty interesting little shoot feature. I love the simplicity, though it did take me a few to figure out what was going on.

A good all-rounder for me, I had fun playing this one!

Really fun, great balance of all the categories, especially for the time-frame :) Clever idea overall!

i found it pretty difficult to aim, so ended up taking the items right up to the "enemies" to fire them off. very polished and a nice art style though.

I keep coming back to this. I just can't get over how polished it is for a 48-hour game- it's how any Ludum Dare game should be: a core of fun gameplay polished until it shines.

cool quick short game, interesting mechanic, a little bit hard to tell where the object is going to shoot out of you though because the arrow is beside you

Loved this game. The movement feels great, the text is funny and the gameplay mechanics are pretty simple. My only problems with it is the lack of a catchy tune and the feeling that the arrow is still moving even after pressing the throw button. Congrats!

Great idea for game mechanics but also quiet difficult. Maybe only spawning outside the circle would help.

Great little game. Wish it didn't take so long to get all 40 items though.

i like this one a lot

Dec 24, 2011 @ 4:12am

Cool game, the mechanics could use some work. It really takes too long for the arrow to circle back around. If that was faster then it would give more of a reflex element and less of a timing element which I think would fit this game better.

Very enjoyable, and incredibly bug-free.

Great game. Cure graphics. Had a lot of fun with it.

Aiming was a little awkward at first, and it took some getting used to. For whatever reasons I think I keep expecting the projectiles to originate from the arrow rather than the character, so I instinctively use the arrow to judge throwing arcs. Maybe if you had a little arrow orbit around the character, rather than rotating beside him.

I really liked the item variety, good humour there. Throwing 'Australia' at someone got a laugh out of me.

Simple but fun enough, the aiming is interestingly new !
(It didn't take the items I found into account on the title screen, but who really cares ?)

Really awesome and polished, as well as super addicting!
