By far my favorite part of this game was the "walk" animation of the main character. I defiantly died because I was too fascinated with how my guy was walking to pay attention and dodge my surroundings. Funny graphics!

Fun game! As syawqy said, a restart function is realy needed. For my taste it gets a little to quick to fast.

Yeah definitely needs a restart otherwise you need to keep reloading the page (also a way of tracking your score).

That was more difficult than I'd anticipated it would be. I love the potato animation for the game over though lol.

You should have a small delay to get ready on before you started throwing potatoes. Other than that (and the restart thing), the game was ok :)

The game had a really cute vibe. I liked the music and (as others have said) the walking animation, which was silly in the best way possible. It kind of looked like he was doing that Russian sitting dance ("Prisyadki", I think it's called?)

Funny game. I don't understand what are the lips supposed to be. You need lips to eat potatoes? Or something like this?

a nice interpretation of a classic, simple mechanic

May 12, 2013 @ 7:35pm

I picked the mouth and it teleported me directly on a potato :'(

It's really simple (which isn't necessarily bad). I like the humor but it could really use some improvements. Especially a restart option would be nice.

Not bad, works well, it's decently minimalistic and having to catch a pan to win the level is unusual :). Complaints: once the game is lost I have to reload the page instead of simply pressing space, and the second level is very hard. I also didn't notice any shield after taking the mouth.

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.
