Interesting play on the theme! I quickly discovered that there was a sweet spot on the track that I could stop at that would clog the entire street. But a very good concept. Nice work!

The perfect game for the holiday season, where everyone drives like a complete moron

Innovative idea. Would have been better if my browser wasn't moving around when I pressed up and down.

Really clever gameplay idea! The other drivers' movements are very convincing.

I *love* the concept (lolboston), it's very creative and fun :). You should add bonus points for most cars simultaneously exploded, lol

I like the idea! I know you are not supposed to, but I couldn't help just going on a rampage running over other cars!

Very creative idea!

It was really fun putting my foot down and watching the speedo keep going all the way round past 200

Weave and slow down? meh.
Push 'em into the median so they can't go fast? 5 cars go by while you're off-roading.
Go 150 and explode 'em? ok that's more like it.
Go 150 the wrong way? Heh.
Go sideways? WIN. 0.2 mph :)

Nice idea and game is fun but I had problems to understand how to get stars.

Great use of the theme ! A few people did use the idea of the "everyday villain". Controls are smooth and easy, the gameplay is challenging. It took me a few seconds to understand the real goal, the "tutorial" i think, should be more visible :D Great job !

Reminded me of Burnout (which is good), and I liked how the other drivers try to move away from you as you speed towards. Awesome job!

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.
