Villians want to ruin geek's convention, and only you - Fat-Guy-In-A-Batman -Costume-Man - can save it! Yes you are the true hero! Or not? Then why do you wearing this superhero's costume? Anyway, try to keep yourself and other geeks away from this bombs - they kind a 10 seconds dangerous.
You have great allies - powerups! Yeah, with them you can perform loud shout to scare geeks away from bombs! You can even find a defuse kit, to disable all bombs!

- You can hide bombs in flowerpots or trashcans;
- You can scare away geeks if you have a power up.


Z/Y/W - pick/drop a bomb, use a staircase;
X - use powerup.

This looks fantastic and has a very interesting and enjoyable game mechanic with a quirky point of view. :) Awesome animations too, cool take on the theme. :) Rated highly. :)

Graphics and audio were very well done. It was pretty fun just running around and shouting at people. Near the end it got like "Some days you just can't get rid of a bomb" :)

This game is pretty great~ It has a nice concept, fits the theme, some pretty cool graphics, a catchy beat, and (best of all) Batman.

You get high ratings from me too. It is somewhat frustrating that its so easy to drop the bomb when trying to use the stairs though.

The mechanic wasn't obvious, the graphics are funny.

Cool pixels and nice theme, it reminds me a lot of the Geek culture, I like it :) But I think the control is a bit wierd, why the input buttons are "ZYW"? Is it some kind of joke that I don't get the point? Nicely done overall :)

Z / W / Y - performs the same action. So you can play using only Z X buttons.
We added W and Y buttons, because on German and French keyboards there is W and Y buttons instead of Z.

We had bad feedbacks because of this issue in the past.

I love the overall look and feel. It is really funny. I found myself at little bit in distress with the keys. I'd rather go with the four arrows for up/down the stairs and left/right. But overall it is a great entry.

The graphics and soundtrack are great! The game's concept is neat and funny.

The control scheme was a little confusing though, imho.

Should probably have made pick up bomb and use stairs a different button, I was frequently entering stairs when I was trying to pick up a bomb that had spawned on them.
Good job though, very funny idea and the graphics are great :D

Love the character! Game is a bit tricky to figure out though.

The game is a bit confusing at the beginning, but the graphics are really cool and funny.

Always love for Batman. Crazy and fun game! Sometimes the bombs spawned right before the staircases and were a bit tricky to pick up. Otherwise a nice game :)

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 ( 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.
