Tado Toss

by PixelOaks - Jam Entry

Tado Toss is a multi-player arena game. You play as a tado dog with the minimal ability to throw deadly potatoes at others!

Please look at the included image.

Make sure to play in full screen for maximum fun! (F12)

Share with your friends for a 4 on 4 tado-tossing rumble!

(Note: There might be some latency/lag issues. Currently seeing about fixing that)

Wow! Awesome! An online game in only 72 hours? Great art, fun minimal game. I spent a good 20 minutes throwing potatoes at strangers. Definitely a recipe for success.

How was this possible!? How big was your team?! lol

Great work. I could see this being the start of a game that I would find in steam.

In Tado Toss there are no winners, Only less-losers. Haha, great game though. I think this is the first multiplayer ludum dare game I've seen. Awesome Job!

Nice, tossed some spuds at first and then we all became friends and tried to climb the terrain :)

I never knew throwing spuds at random dog rabbit creature things could be so much fun. Multiplayer spud arena in a 72 hour jam, awesome job!

First I was all alone :(
But then someone joined and it was a lot of fun. :D

I imagine this would be really cool if played with more people. :)

It looks amazing and the music fits the colorful graphics.
Great job!

I think I might have been the one who joined :D
I'm glad everyone is enjoying it! Working on fixing some of the lag issues for those who've had them!

This was very fun. It's fantastic for an effort of only 72 hours. It would be more fun with a few more players online.

Love the graphics style. Really impressive to get an online game like this up and working!

Amazingly refined multiplayer product for a jam entry. The only complaint I had was the player didn't capture my mouse.

Luckily I had a friend to call upon to try this, the lobby was empty (a basic AI for a situation like that maybe). It was very fun, loved the feel of the controls and overall style.

Seems fun but nobody to play against when i tested it !

robotality says ...
May 3, 2013 @ 2:29pm

I had actually one to test it with, but he/she logged out when I was winning ;( anyway looks nice but it would look even better with a skybox.
The fights are a little bit simple: Mostly standing infront of each other and hitting the mouse button.
Overall quite an game for 72h especially with the muliplayer support. :)

wow, I'd so much like to get the source of this (since I wanted to create an unity arena multiplayer game for a long time)

well done - I managed to get in a game with other players and had a lot of funk (once I got used to the controls)

very well done :)

Nice graphics and animations.

I'm going to have to learn Unity. The stuff you can make with it so quickly is awesome! My friend and I played this for about ten minutes and enjoyed ourselves. The music is fitting and doesn't get annoying, the animations are great, and it has a good aesthetic. One of the few LD games I've played where I was legitimately amused for an extended period of time. Well done! :)

What a shame there was no one else to play against. However, it looked like it might be fun, and I enjoyed the animations.

Congratulations on making an online game in such a short time! It looks great and sounds great. However, nobody was online when I tried to play so I didn't give an overall or a fun rating.

Fun game, nice work. :)

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.

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 (http://mysite.com/mygame.zip) 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.
