Quick! Crook Faster!

by Ossi - 48 Hour Compo Entry

Hopefully the download links work for everyone. If you see a list of files just click file at the top left and then download.

There's still sooo much work to do on this game, it may be buggy and sometimes the final screen skips over if you click too fast.

I'm probably going to keep working on this game, I really enjoy the 10 seconds theme and the whole concept of my "cooking money" and stashing it in silly places.

This was my first Ludum Dare experience and I'm glad I participated, really really fun! :D

Was a fun little idea with a funny little backstory. :P Could have potential if there were more things to do. Congrats on your first LD!

Haha, "crooked crook cooker", try saying that 5 times fast. Funny little game.

Quite nice for a first try! The backstory was fun, and the game "plays" well even though there isn't much to do. Keep on going!

Excellent backstory, and love the alliteration. Nice fun game, like a farmville under the gun. Great!

The instructions seems overly complicated for what the game actually is.

Your skill with wordplay exceeds my own, well done! Simple point-and-click timing game, though the story and gameplay seemed really disjointed. Still, thanks for putting this together!

The tongue twisters were so silly. I loved them. I featured it in my video compilation of Ludum Dare 27 games, if you would like to check it out,

Awesome title. "Crook" should be used as a verb more often! Looking forward to seeing where you go with this, since it's a really neat idea.

Great writing. Fun game, if a little easy. Good to hear you're planning to take it further.

Sorry I have linux only, can't rate you back :(

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 ( 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.
