Short, but the gameplay and the physics work really well. The graphics are also pretty nice.

Wish had more time to make more level, LudumDare finishes at monday 10AM, I went to bed at 7AM..

Concept seems original. A solid score for Humor. The main control mechanism could have used some feedback (maybe visualize a velocity vector?).

Dec 17, 2012 @ 4:55am

This game is great! I love the physics, which are rock solid by the way. The artwork is very nice, the sounds are funny and gratifying. I'd love to see twenty more levels of this!

Funny idea. I like the graphics.

Great fun. I loved the art and enjoyed the "blah blah" sound effects.

Yeah, so it's an Angry Birds remake but really nicely done! Love the fact (intentional?) that the protagonist looks like "Gangnam Style" dude!

great job with the graphics! gameplay is pretty fun too.

Kind of offensive... but I suppose with a theme of "You are the villain", that should be expected.
Had trouble with the "launching" mechanic. There was no UI indicating I was preparing a shot.
Graphics are excellent and the audio is cute.

Wuhao says ...
Dec 17, 2012 @ 5:40am

I agree, i should had some kind of feed back so sacks will be easier to aim

Cool little game, i like the "bag a bride" concept, and the fact there is several levels.

Woha, really innovative concept and nice execution!
I was expecting a gameover if the wedding procedure complete before you can catch the bride, but it's easier now :P

Wuhao says ...
Dec 17, 2012 @ 10:41am

Ye, I originally planned that once the priest finishes the wedding procedure. but didnt have time to implement that. Thanks for playing

Dec 17, 2012 @ 10:54am

Great game. Love the art. Sound effects of preacher talking is great. I had trouble figuring out how to throw the bag. Should have tips in game, and maybe show and arc on screen as you drag, mechanic and great idea. Could actually see something like this maybe working on iOS. Good stuff, solid prototype all around.

Amazing entry, cool concept, great physics, phenomenal graphics and cool audio too. I loved Psy-Bagger.

Nicely done! Did you use any other tools like Cocos Builder for this?

Wuhao says ...
Dec 17, 2012 @ 2:01pm

No I didn't use cocosBuilder, since there aren't much UI elements. tilemap was done in tiled, I tried Physics Editor, but it didn't work well with cocos2d

lekochen says ...
Dec 17, 2012 @ 3:07pm

The graphics are so adorable. Well done!

How did you get your game load so fast? Did you optimize for that? I use cocos2d-html5 as well but mine is so slow. Is because I use Dropbox to host my game?

lekochen says ...
Dec 17, 2012 @ 3:17pm

Whoa, are you one of the cocos2d-html5 developers? Thanks for making this great engine! Great job!

Wuhao says ...
Dec 17, 2012 @ 4:04pm

ye Dropbox is really slow, github pages are pretty good actually. Also most of my images were saved as png8, which is really small compared to png32.
And yes, I am one of cocos2d-html5 developer

lekochen says ...

Good to know that, thanks!

This game is incredible. Nothing has made me laugh this much in a long time. Just the idea of throwing a bag over a bride and then the physics fun makes me chuckle every time. One of the best games I've played this year!

lol, this game is interesting, never thought the concept can be explain in such a hilarious way, great job.

Dec 18, 2012 @ 8:01am

+1 for the blah effects. Maybe add more info about the controls on this page?

Wuhao says ...
Dec 18, 2012 @ 8:07am

Good idea, i'll do that

robashton says ...
Dec 18, 2012 @ 11:43am

Very nicely done, I liked how the protaganist looked like PSY :P

sletari says ...
Dec 18, 2012 @ 3:34pm

Very nice! Indeed, it would be good to have some visual feedback of the aim/strenght

Dec 18, 2012 @ 8:27pm

As a virgin I can really relate to this game's protagonist.

drewfitz says ...
Dec 18, 2012 @ 11:03pm

Hilarious! A suggestion: some sort of aiming indicator when you're dragging the mouse.

AhNinniah says ...
Dec 19, 2012 @ 12:21am

It was really fun to play! Stunning graphics indeed!

I wonder, what for he kidnaps all these brides :)

atrodo says ...
Dec 19, 2012 @ 3:34am

Fun, but I really felt like I needed some feedback on what was going to happen with the throwing. Good game.

Stryphe says ...
Dec 19, 2012 @ 4:58am

Good Game

Dec 19, 2012 @ 7:20am

Love your graphics and humor. I think the best part is it can be played on mobile devices. Some visual feedback when dragging will be better.

Wuhao says ...
Dec 19, 2012 @ 8:21am

I did not enable touch on mobile devices, so you can't get past title screen lol. besides, the performance is awful on mobile device..
Ye, like everyone's being saying, i should have implemented aiming vector

pereubu says ...
Dec 19, 2012 @ 8:13pm

nice and short concept, i liked it a lot, maybe more feedbacks would have been necessary to help the player ( considering the time you had to spent on physics i understand the time needed to finish the game) great job D:

gnx says ...
Dec 19, 2012 @ 11:21pm

Very good graphics and lots of fun touches.
Overall lags for me and the bag throwing seems very unresponsive with mouse control.

Beerman says ...
Dec 20, 2012 @ 7:54pm

Gloriously silly with great use of physics.

degtyarev says ...
Dec 21, 2012 @ 7:30am

Graphics is cool, but too booring

dek says ...
Dec 21, 2012 @ 12:08pm

Hi, you commented my game and told me that it didnt work, can you describe what is happening?

davidwparker says ...
Dec 22, 2012 @ 5:32pm

Good idea, but I had no idea how to actually bag a bride. I tried clicking / clicking+dragging, but nothing ever happened. It fired the bag a couple of times but never where I thought it would.

I like the audio and graphics.

What did you think of Cocos2-html5? Did you use CocosBuilder or just code?

Wuhao says ...
Dec 23, 2012 @ 1:06pm

if you release the mouse outside the game area (canvas), it won't register, you have to drag and release the mouse inside the game.
No I didn't use cocos builder, you can see my progress in the time lapse video at the top of this page

cwalter5 says ...
Dec 24, 2012 @ 4:28am

It's too hard to tell where you are aiming, you should add a graphic to give you some indication of your throw strength and angle. Also the limited length of your rope is a bummer.
The sound is hilarious, but I'd turn it off after the intro.

All that picking but the game idea is pretty original and the mechanics work pretty well. I also can't find fault with the graphics.

This is one of the best and funniest games I've played yet in LD25. I'm impressed!

Fantastic game. I got all the brides. Was fun to play. Here is my feedback:

- Sometimes I wish to scroll faster back to my character for launching the next shot. Your scrolling algorithm prevents me from that.
- The rope is only shown the first time. Is this a bug? Shouldn't have every threw bag a connected rope?

Liked the graphics and the "bla"-sound the most :D

Hatscat says ...

really funny!

kibertoad says ...
Dec 24, 2012 @ 5:48pm

Excellent idea, but controls are very, very clunky, wish there was some force indicator shown.

dragonfi says ...
Dec 28, 2012 @ 12:56pm

Very well done, it's really fun. Too bad there are only 5 levels, I could play this for a while.

SuperDisk says ...
Dec 28, 2012 @ 10:51pm

Quite a funny concept. The 'bwaaa bwaa' coming from the pastor thing was very humorous, plus PSY capturing brides from a tree while the groom doesn't even notice is hilarious.

TyrusPeace says ...
Dec 31, 2012 @ 12:14am

I like the hilarity that the physics rollin' and bonkin' added to the concept. Nice work! It seemed a bit buggy at points as the rope connecting the player and the bag didn't render reliably and I had a couple bags being reeled in at once a few times.

That ended up looking even more hilarious :P.

Jezzamon says ...
Dec 31, 2012 @ 5:16am

Nice! The audio was a little annoying, but a pretty hilarious game. A little buggy at times though, like if you threw another bag before the first disappeared it glitched.

Nice graphics too. :D

Awesome game!!! Really fun and funny :D I played it a lot of times

I literally laughed out loud when I saw who I was playing as.

Nice gameplay, and I just can't believe this is your first time making pixel graphics. They're amazing.

Jan 8, 2013 @ 12:08am

Hahaha, hilarious! Having a PSY-lookalike as a bride-stealing villain totally made my day. Cool entry.
