i love how when the foot comes down at the end it's not attached to anything O_x

I love bad endings ;p The only thing was that the bee and the foot weren't the same style as the other design. If they would also be in the same style i think it would look better

I enjoyed this game. It was funny and original, although short.

Good job!

Good job on your first dare, the tack in the foot sold me.

Excellent first game! I hope LD was a good and rewarding experience for you!

I thought it was clever and funny. I got pretty bored collecting bombs (why was I collecting bombs, anyway?) But, the goal seemed near at hand enough that I was willing to slog through. The nail DID look painful.

Way to include sounds. Nice details with the backgrounds. Nice sequencing of events. This is an impressive first go at game design. Keep it up! Keep having fun and giving your creation such personality.

Very funny, but very easy, too. Nice ending. A sentence like "OH MY GOD, they killed Jonny!" would be very funny. Charming graphics. If you go on with this game, you should start with gameplay adding more competition and interaction with the collected resources.

That bee!

I'd suggest making the graphics consistently big-pixelly. The leg, blood, and nail break the esthetic. I think the bee does as well.

The galloping leg animation is adorable.

Heh - not bad for a first game, a pleasant playing experience. Foot violence made me laugh.

I really liked the ending. Took me a while to find the nail because I'm dumb though. Good for a first game!

Apr 26, 2012 @ 10:22pm

It's simplistic, but it made me laugh, like hearing a good joke. Make more games that feel like this :)

Sad story :( Nice game, short but fun. Nice gfx (the bee and foot are in a different resolution I think)

Congratulations on creating your first game, in 48 hours no less! Some funny bits in the game, I enjoyed destroying the bee with a tin tack particularly :) Looking forward to seeing something next LD :)

Nicely done. It's simple, but the most important part is that it's a complete game. It was fun to beat. Damn humans always stepping on my ant friends! He deserved the dildo in his toenail.

Nicely done! Hope you come back for many more Ludum Dares, and hope to see more games from you!

As a suggestion for next time, add some challenge to collecting the items, it can make it more interesting.
