Big Bad Wolf

by Dir3kt - 48 Hour Compo Entry

You are the big bad wolf, will you manage to eat the little red riding hood?


Each time a pig escape, one lumberjack pops.
Each time hood escape, three lumberjacks pop.
Eat! Eat! Eat!


LEFT/RIGHT --> move
UP/X --> jump
SPACE --> select/continue
TAB --> music on/off

There is one "secret" key, can you find it?

I love the art-style, especially the wolf. I haven't found the "secret" key yet :(

I feel the animations seem a little too 'rigid.' The wolf's hitbox also seemed a little awkward for traversing that map. Though other than that, good job!

I think the atmosphere you created with this game, the music and the artwork really made it fun to play and the level is well-designed to have little places that you can get caught in. However the jump of the wolf could be improved imo.

The chomp sound effect made eating the pigs pretty satisfying

Your game being called: 'Big Bad Wofl' and me being called 'Big Bad Wofl' I felt compelled to test your game.

The art looks good and the gameplay is easy an fun. A great piece of work!

The art was awesome and the music added a lot ot the atmosphere. The blood getting on the trees in the background was a nice detail. Great!

Pretty nice game. You've put a lot of effort into it. The wolf jumping movement could have been smoothed up a little more. Good audios/graphics.

That was pretty fun! Though, I felt bad for the piggies and the little red riding hoods. All that blood. :(

Oh, I forgot to mention. Well done! This is actually one of the better games I've rated (and I've rated about 70). Fun to play and very polished. I'm impressed.

Very funny idea. I really liked the music and the sound effects. The eating animation of the wolf made me laugh. The jumping is okay, but feels a bit strange. I played it multiple times and I often fell into the gap on the screen's bottom. Perhaps I just need some training. As next step, I would implement more gameplay elements, because after some minutes of play, it lacks of variation. Nice job anyway :)

I liked the graphics and "feel" of the character movements actually. Maybe a bit too much gravity, but still - plays good for me. The game gets ab it repetitive after a while, but that's pretty common given the time constraints :) All in all, really well done. Oh, and libgdx rocks :)

Fantastic, really enjoyed it. The whole thing looks great and the gameplay is quite compulsive. Controlling the wolf felt a little claustrophobic, something to do with the arc of this jump and the height of the platforms. Great work on the music!

I'm getting a strong Super Crate Box vibe from this one in terms of tone and style, even music (which is not a bad thing). Basic, but arcade-y. Nice touches and gameplay. Some more tweaking on hitboxes, spawn frequencies and other details and it's a great contender.

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.
