Enjoyable but suffers from the enemies getting bunched up so the challenge doesn't increase.

Rofl that's quite funny. Enemy stacking is a bit annoying as it means if you collide with the stack, you instantly die. Still a solid entry; well done.

Pretty nice, though being slowed down the more damage you take is not very fun. :( Also, I don't really see what it has to do with the theme.

I couldn't get to one of my buckets because it was out of the movable range :(

Oh wait, that was just me trying to pick up one of the buckets in the "bucket-o-meter", lol

It's pretty good, simple and unexpected.

The moment I saw it's name and the attached screenshot I knew this was going to be fun. And it was! xD

Simpel, fun, and addictive game. I ended up with four buckets after a few times.

The game is pretty simple but the music and sprites and premise make it awesome

Augh, my hair is on fire!

This becomes particularly amusing when you figure "if I take all the flames at once, I can clear the level and just get the bucket. Can't fail!" But then you hear


and you die. Marvellous.

Little note for next time: you mustn't download sounds from anywhere. You must create all content within the 48 hours (read the rules).

Thanks you guys.
The only downloaded sounds I used were the free synth samples used to make the song. I thought it would be alright if I made the song myself. Everything else is all mine.

@antonijn I think the sounds were specifically for the music, much like instrument samples.

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.
