The mechanic wasn't as fun as I expected, and didn't feel the point of carrying on.

Up and Down arrows to move, Z to "cook" bomb.
The longer you hold Z, the further the bomb goes.
You can get hit 10 times before you die.

This isn't half-bad. I like the heist-theme and the bomb-mechanic. With a lot of rigorous polishing this could very well work.

the bombs make me happy, and the mechanic is good, could be great if you carried it on

It's great, it isn't perfect. But it's a cool little game.

Variable speeds of the police cars and some limited vertical movement of them would make it a bit more dynamic. Timed bomb mechanic is ok. Main thing missing is some goal, maybe a wave-based system?

You know, the mechanic is actually fun. It's not the first time I see a game using a mechanic like this, and it does work. Like somebody else said, with some polish and a goal to acompplish, you could have a winner!

It's not bad. It felt too easy, but it has the potential to be a great game.

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.
