It bugged out on the second level and I couldn't place towers anymore :(

It's a tower defense game. Those are still basically fun. I appreciate the humor(?). It could use something crazy. Liek a dog. Or peanuts.

Pretty interesting tower defense game. I don't know why, but I couldn't get the blue diamond thing to slow down enemies, though.

Fun art. Liked lasers. On the downside it's quite buggy.

Not a bad tower defense game. Placing towers can be glitchy at best. On the second level after several waves, there are these gold crowed toaster pastry looking guys that I couldn't even kill one of. It was fun until I got completely owned by the crown guys, humorous too.

The concept is actually quite good. But the game get pretty quickly very boring. Maybe something to increase the game duration is needed ?

To build the frost tower pick the Item and place them in the tower active tower slots left from the Trash Can

so the items in the pandashop became part of your active item Slots ( upgrade wont become a tower // just goes away + passiv bonus to all tower will be applied)

Ran into an apparent bug after the first wave of the second level several times. No more waves would ever come, forcing me to restart the game.

Nice tower defence game and I appreciate the humor.

The game need some polish though:
- The game pace is a bit slow (and I would love a fast-foward button).
- The UI need to be improved (trashCan button?) and seems bugged: I can't place any tower after playing some levels.
- no audio

Pretty funny game. The interface at the bottom was a little difficult to understand (only the top two options are active).

Placing towers is extremely hard :s looks like a great game though! :(

I liked the silliness of the game, but I had issues with the interface when trying to place towers. I managed to place a few laser towers, but after the first level I could no longer place anything. With some more work it could be quite a charming tower defense game. Could do with some audio too.

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.
