December 14th-17th 2012 :: Theme: You are the Villain

Back to Browse Entries


by Xgor - 48 Hour Compo Entry

So here is my odd little game.
It's about corrupting a poor man's clone of Super Mario Bros and just cause chaos, because let's face it, the true villains of video games are bugs and glitches!

.... I kinda gave up when we had 12 hours left.. way too tired and I didn't really want to work more on the weird direction the game was turning out, thus the crap ending.

What's this I don't.... eh...

Very original idea; even though it lacked a bit... I dunno, gameplay, i guess. Don't get me wrong, I'm all for an interactive story, just saying that this was, in my opinion, an interactive story.


- Original.
- Fun, but a bit short and no replay value.
- Graphics are stylish, and a nice touch with all the corruption.

Nice try. I thought the concept was interesting. It would've been cool if you had the characters of the game cartridge trying to run through the created mayhem. Short game but nonetheless interesting.

Nice idea, sadly it wasn't very fun to play. I've always liked having a bit more control than just "point and watch things go bonkers".

I liked the experimental nature of this(atleast thats how it felt to me). The graphics were reallly cool and made it feel like you were actually a horrible corrupt bug ;P although the ending could have been improved it was pretty fun.

I win, I think. Neat game, coulda last longer and had more story but decent nonetheless. I like the idea of corrupting other games, I just wish you'd expanded it more

What exactly did I just play?
It was... interesting... xD

I really liked this game. =D
For sure, that is the worst villain from games!

A very original idea. Graphic is fitting, but I would like to do a bit more than just see everything going corrupted.
Annother ending would have been great. Also: it took me some time to figure out how to start, but that does not affect my rating.

Really neat idea. There's little in the way of gameplay but the interactivity with the environment is very cool

Looks okay, but I can't play & rate it until tomorrow.
I love the concept.

I have literally no idea of what I've just played to, but it was enough to fuck my mind.

Rather random. Interesting, but I can see how you may have not known how to proceed.

So weird, so bizarre. But I liked it, very creative and well made.

Innovative, short'n sweet. Excellent choice of villain.

Clever idea! Was a little bit trippy but I liked the way things looked as they corrupted.

A nice interpretation of the theme, I must say, but I fear the game lacks a little to much actual gameplay and control for me to really love it.

Haha, I love the way some people are interpreting the theme, and this is no exception. Yes, bugs are indeed the villain, and I like the feel you got going here. Personally, though, while the mood was great, the gameplay was lacking. I still enjoyed it, though. See if you can push yourself to use something other than Game Maker in the future, though. Or at least not require us to install the game. Keep up the good work and keep improving!

I actually enjoyed this a lot, it's really clever take on the theme and all the corruption and glitches were very convincing!

Clever idea but the lack of real gameplay, or a least the impression of it forbid me to really enjoy the game.
Too bad, cause I really love the idea!
(And please, do not require an installation :( )

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.
