Ahahah, hilarious game concept. Took me a while to figure out how to actually hit things effectively.

If I might make a suggestion, do consider taking a look at some of the audio tools recommended for the compo / jam, like bfxr for sound and iNudge for music. They don't require a lot of technical experience, and you can crank stuff out really quickly just with a bit of experimentation. You can get a lot out of some of these tools while spending surprisingly little time. A bit of audio would definitely enhance the experience.

Charming concept and graphical style. Some obstacles like cars could be nice...

It was quite random. Pulling back the camera more would allow player to plan ahead. There could also be checkpoints or goals or something else to go for.
The arrows that let you choose were quite useless, as I could not plan anyway.
The dog looks funny.

I took me a while to figure out that I was supposed to be smashing the buildings but once I realized that it was really fun. This game would be a ton more fun with some audio to go along with it. My only real complaint is that is was a bit too easy to keep going infinitely.

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.
