Man! This is my favorite game so far! The spirit of being a young villain is 100%! Also, it's cool to see another AS3 dev using Flod - cool tunes!

Great old-school vibe, the art was great! At first I wasn't sure what to do, that's my only complaint.

Really well done for only having 48 hours. Everyone knew one those kids growing up. haha

I loved the sneaking and running mechanics. Tapping the buttons left and right made it feel way more sneaky than holding down a button to move.

This is extremely impressive for the 48 hour limit. My only complaint was the seeming lack of a way to restart. Had to reload a few times before I could really enjoy it since I lost... got caught early while learning. Thank you.

Wow impressive and fun. Scores good on mood as well. The music graphics and gameplay blend well.
A real Eric Cartman, love it.

I liked the snowball controls...its fun to try and get it just right. There's something I find really charming about this game, kinda reminded me of having snow ball fights and making snowman as a kid. Well done.

haha! Very cute and funny. Loved the idea , especially with the running away. The throwing against the window was a bit hard.

A refreshing game. It will force you to remember your childhood :) Very funny and well designed. Too bad, it's too short ;)

Very nice storytelling and graphics. A bit hard to throw snowballs and figure out how to bother the other kids at first.

You must sign in to comment.

IMPORTANT NOTE: If you want to place in the final results, you NEED votes. The easiest way to get votes is by rating other games. Judging lasts for 3 weeks following the end of Ludum Dare. For best effect, rate 20 games as soon as possible. Rating more games is encouraged.


REMEMBER: The “Theme” category is only for the main theme (You are the Villain). Don’t penalize for not using Goats.

TEAMS: Teams entering the Jam should pick a single representative to submit your game, or create a team specific account you can share. We currently do not support Team Voting, but sharing an account and together playing and rating games is acceptable.

NOT LOGGED IN?: If you get a message about not being logged in, even though you are, it’s because your web browser cached the non-logged in page. You can fix this by either refreshing your cache or clearing your cache. CTRL+F5 in many browsers. Chrome is a bit more work. Press F12 to enable Developer Mode, then you can right click on the refresh button and select “Empty Cache and Hard Reload”. This option is unavailable if you are not in Developer Mode.

We’ve identified the problem, and should have the page caching bugs fixed for next Ludum Dare.

PORTS: Ports to other platforms can be done after the deadline. That said, the sooner you finish your port, the sooner people can play your game, improving your chances of placing in the final results. For best results, provide a Web version of your game, or a Windows version with no dependencies. Also be sure to rate about 20 games to improve your visibility.

MY GAME DOESN’T SHOW UP: If you can’t find your game, it’s usually because the URL to your downloads are missing ‘http://‘. Fix your URLs ( and you will show up.

MY GAME CRASHES, IS UNBEATABLE, OR I MADE A TYPO: We allow you to fix crash or win condition bugs after the deadline (in a sense, like “porting” to support more players). We also allow “typo” bugs. I.e. A true that should have been a false, a word that should have been a different word, very tiny changes that you would have caught if you had more sleep. We leave this open to interpretation, but generally speaking your game should be identical to the game you submitted. No new features, just things you messed up last minute. Typos.
