The projectile system seems really solid and I like the way enemy's slide backwards when you hit them.

Fun game, also the first game which really did something smart with the theme :)

Awesome game. Reminded me of a friendlier and more complete version of mine. The perfect word to describe it is "Solid".

This is great! The sound when you hit someone gives the game a real solid feel

Great game,it's a little weird to use the spacebar and x,I would have preferred Z for jumping and X for shooting but It doesn't matter much

Throwing felt really good, as did the enemy (and self) response to the snowballs.

Really nice game. I like how the scarfs are flying around :)

Well, technically you get more than one snowball, but omg this game is great. Love it. So much fun.

Really fun to play, could imagine doing this multiplayer over a local network. :)

Nice game, and keeping snowballs out of enemy hands can get quite tactical.

Simple yet satisfying gameplay. I love all the little details like how dead enemies slide around and the scarves wave. It's kind of annoying when enemies drop on top of a snowball or vice versa and you die really fast, but it's fun when an enemy drops right in front of you for an easy kill. I would love to see a multiplayer version of this, even if it's just local multiplayer.

This game is FUN! Simple but very funny!

I would love to see this in multiplayer and with some kind of base or snow fortress!

I like the look of it. Scarves look great. Incredible how this little detail brings life up to an otherwise static layout.

Everything goes very smooth... I like the music also.

NB I hear a windows error sound each time I press the spacebar

Cutest game I have played so far.
So great, and suprisingly fun. Well done. :D

Oh. My. Gosh. SO GOOD. Definitely one of my favorites so far ^_^ the sound and knockback are so clutch!

This makes me want to start a snowball fight :D
Cool and well executed idea. I love the wiggling of the scarfs!
The sound sets the mood very well.
Thumbs up!

Really cool, you should definitely add multiplayer to this because it'd make for a really fun hectic deathmatch. Really nice work on this, pretty damn addicting. Good game!

Cool game bro, stellar mechanics, stellar graphics, very fun to MLG 360 no scope some nubs. Only problem was lag later on. Also, a really cool feature would be to let enemies team kill each other, would make for some epic plays

Most satisfying snowball-thwacking since Calvin and Hobbes. :D Mrs. Berzee was watching over my shoulder and shouting WATCH OUT FOR THAT GUY. So, fun for the whole family. :P

(alas, I haven't any constructive suggestions -- well, aside from the obvious "more levels" and some kind of silly Story Mode that delves into the psyche and origins of our mysterious hero...).

Lot of fun to play this game ;)

This is almost the greatest game ever made. If jump was up, not space it would be better. That is my only complaint. :p

I will play this for eternity.

Can't play, mac

That was really fun to play! There's a strategic element, but also a random one. Hitting others with snowballs and counter-attacking their missed shots is really satisfying.

AWESOME! Awesome theme interpretation, i love the audio feedback of a kill...and that scarf! Great job!

Ah snowball carnage. I couldnt resist a title like that. Little Southpark children (or should I say sitting ducks?).
I liked the music, relaxed and not something you hear a lot on a Ludum Dare unless it was found on the internet.
Is it midi?

Moist says ...
Dec 20, 2013 @ 6:59pm

Thank you for rating, everyone!
@goerp: Yes, it is midi and it as generated using this awesome online tool:

I love this :D

Dec 21, 2013 @ 1:36pm

What a nice game! So simple yet so fun. Really well done. :) A snow falling effect would have been nice, but other than that there's nothing I'd change. I just spent at least 20 minutes with it and had a lot of fun, great work!

The game was fun.
Nice job on the snowball ballistic.
I found the AI pretty good, maybe too good, you don't have too much chance if you are close to one of them.

Had a lot of fun playing the game, can't say often enough how awesome the red scarf is :) The game could need some powerups to add variations to it :)

Fast, fun gameplay with an interpretation of theme that works.

Very fun game! Reminds me of a game I got sent in one of those forwards from grandma years ago, but your game is much better than it ;)

Thanks for submitting your game to the compilation as well!

Dec 23, 2013 @ 3:46am

Cool game ! I like the throwing physic ! Nice job !

Who cares about gameplay, look at those SCARVES! :P But no really, quite fun.

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.
