Really nice, although it could need quite some more balancing, especially that annoying superhero.

Made it to level 13. Who knew such as simple concept could be so fun?

This was pretty enjoyable, though it does gets a bit annoying at some point.

- I like the idea that you're randomly spawning other bombs
- I like destroying stuff. You've done well on the DestroyingStuff category. heh.
- At around level 10, it just gets too hard. You click like mad, at random positions, and it sometimes just works but most of the times just not.
- A bit more tactics would've been nice, instead of mad clicking
- I wasn't entirely sure where my missiles would end up each time.

Deeply Enjoyable! I got to level 12 and couldn't click any faster. V satisfying.

I must answer level 20 with a 'yes'. Does it end?

This game is really great! It's highly additive and all in all very well executed. The "reasons" to obliterate are really cool too! Apparently the character "0" looks like an "8". Also I very often click out of the window and the window looses focus (an automatic pause function would be good or fullscreen or using the last point the mouse was "seen")

Awesome! Couldn't get past level 36 though :(
One tiny "bug": the fonts "0" looks like an "8"!

Really nice animation on the nuke :DDDDDDD Loving the turrets too, they seem really dynamic and smooth.

Wow that hero really is annoying! Could work really well on a touch device with a little more balance

Button smashing for the win ^^. I think it would be better, if you let the player make some meaningful decision, like which bombs to shoot. There could be a thick bomb which can take more damage then others.

A fun game for me! :) I love graphics and explosions! After level 14-15 my index finger said "Please, no more!"

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.
