Mr Pickpocket

by Waynetron - 48 Hour Compo Entry

Do you have what it takes to be a super-duper pick pocket person?

WASD to move around
Steal wallets by dragging from point A to point B

Drag outside the lines and you'll get caught.
If you lose your mark with your hand still in his pocket, you'll get caught.

Get caught by the police and it's game over!

Post compo version includes sound and some bug fixes / game tweaks.

I really wanted to design the characters and have their faces rotate correctly, but I ran out of time :(

Great game! I don't think you needed to add their faces, it looks fine without them.

The game mechanic is really cool! It's a lot of fun, though after a while I just wait for me to screw up because it get's a little boring.

Very cool! Loved the dragging mechanism to steal wallets. Nice graphics. Some sound would have been nice. Thanks for writing it!

Awesome game. It seems like everything came together on this one. This is going to make for a really great touch screen-based game.

The timed dragging mechanic for picking pockets is brilliant, and the visual design and palette are perfect. Nice job!

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.
