Very nice. Also great art style and animations (except for the villain, it could use some more I'd say).

This game ticks all the boxes, it's extremely polished. And you included the goat as well, nice one with that. I kept on smirking at the horrific jokes Robin kept on making.

Awesome. I like vacuuming money from people. I wish that was my job. Wish there was music also. Music and vacuuming money from people.

lotusgame says ...
Dec 24, 2012 @ 5:21pm

I really like the theme of playing a bankster :) Too bad it's too repetitive, but for a 26h entry even with 2 dev, it's good word !

This was a cute little game. Well polished, with nice graphics and sounds, and no noticeable bugs. I liked it a lot.

It would be cool if there was some sort of progression - maybe updates or some way to recover life, etc.

Jiddo says ...
Dec 27, 2012 @ 4:58pm

Hehe. I managed to get to $53 after a couple of tries. It was a little bit hard to avoid the things people throw at you, and without more health you have to be real careful.

Either way, the game looks awesome and the background music and sound effects are a nice addition. The gameplay is simple but feels quite polished and most importantly, it is fun.

I really like the idea. I also quite appreciate the humor, both the inherent humor of the idea itself, but also in the speech bubbles from the character and such. Great job!

Haha, goats are so dangerous.
I like a lot the art style.

great work. I liked everything about it. Fun and simple. Great graphics and animations.

Easy to learn, hard to master. Really good execution of the theme with a fun and enticing presentation!

It was fun to rob those people of their cash, but I feel like you should also be trying to nab those wallets for bonus monies, but instead they just hurt you which feels wrong. I can understand the suitcases, phones, and lattes but the wallets? I wanna rob them blind haha

Great work!

Really well done.

BlockBrains says ...

A goat just flew up at me while I was sucking people's money away from them from atop a bank using a vacuum cleaner. Awesome.

Nice graphics and goats! Gameplay is smooth and fun. Maybe the learning curve is too flat. But in any case it's a good game! Congratulations!

Jan 6, 2013 @ 2:15pm

I like the look you've got and you've nailed the theme

azurenimbus says ...
Jan 6, 2013 @ 9:40pm

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.
