A shooting game including cute cannon fodder.

To run on Windows extract and double click on "click.exe". It should work.
To run on Linux extract, change into the game directory and run ./click. You need Allegro 5.0.8 installed. Sorry to the people who don't like installing dependencies...

Very nice game, though the bunnies were a bit too fast and didn't move high enough that it would be worth trying to shoot them later on. Liked the flying armadillos(?) and pigs though.

That game is really hard! I like it. Maybe the screen could be a little bit larger.

I only see vegetables, no animals, and if I click, the game uses 100% CPU and becomes unresponsive. This happened both with the Linux binary (32-bit) and when I compiled from source (64-bit - incidentally, this took less effort somehow). There's no output at all.

Oh noes! I'm a goat! Cool game and rather difficult.

Bunnies move up and down a bit too fast. Also it's a bit of a broad take on the theme, you don't necessarily have to be a villain to keep rabbits away from your cabbages.

Thank you all for the responses and testing my game! I'm glad so many of you have got it to run!
The flying balls of fur were meant to be badgers, but they are tricky to draw.
@J: I haven't come across that problem, can you give any more details?

Hmm. Well, I used Allegro 5.0.8, and compiled with Go 1.0.3, on Arch Linux. I can't think of anything else that might help with this problem - I didn't notice much. On starting the game, there's just a static screen with the cursor and no sound, and clicking causes the freeze.

I'm not sure what's causing that. All of the development was done on Arch, Go version 1.0.3-4, Allegro 5.0.8-1. Clicking doesn't do very much except allocating some video memory (I think). The game uses hardware accelerated graphics, so maybe it doesn't like your graphics card.

I appreciated the consistent art style, randomly-generated levels, and the level of difficulty.

I like the randomised level generation and the graphics are all consistent within the theme.. However, as I missed practically every rabbit I aimed at, can you give me the option of M4 with undermounted grenade launcher? Thanks!

Nice one! Pretty hard (and the resolution is very small by default, scales nicely though), but quite fun. I think it's well suited to repeated replays since the difficulty is not too high, you just need to focus and get better. Well done!

Looks nice, but slow it down a bit.

Bunnies could be a fraction slower. Not bad other than that.

Bunnies were the hardest thing to hit, you definitely need to slow them down or at least give them a bigger hit box. Good game other than that issue!

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.
