Great stuff! Love the mood. Way to keep it short and simple.

Nice little game you have here. I really like the villain's runcycle, as well as the rather humorous theme. Could be improved by some chase music, or perhaps changes in terrain that you need to jump over.

It would be even better if there is an end result screen.

Very fun elegant game. The mechanic made me repeatedly press R :) Miss some sound though!

Thank you!

Ha, I like the run cycle myself too!
It's sad that I no nothing about music.
Thank you!


You're right! There should be more endings!

Fast-paced FTW! Thank you!

Short, sweet, well-executed, and fits the theme perfectly. All it needs is an infinite mode and a catchy chiptune soundtrack to devour my life.

Definately needs an 'infinite' mode and incrasing difficulty :D

The art style is really nice! Though the game is short but it feels very completed.

cute idea playing off the respect a villain has for his adversary.

Love it! It's simple, works really well, and hits the theme square-on.

Nice graphics. A little short, but simple, and very fun. I hope you develop it further.

This is nice, i like your take on the run mechanic vs gaining points. Risk vs reward :)

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.
