Funny Game. A bit short but the graphics are sweet. :-) I have a 5 years old son too. I know how funny this is to make a game together.

When I saw this art on the previews I was intrigued. I ended up really liking the artwork and the animations, it was all well done. My only complaints would be that the game was very short and had zero difficulty but it was an enjoyable game that will stick in my memory as a unique cool idea.

Music in the main menu would have helped.

I really enjoy this game and especially like that you had your son join in the development. The art is awesome - all platforms should have beards. It would be really cool to see a larger game with your kid doing the art for it. Great work.

Your son has solid programming skills.
Joke aside - it's really cool to see a) people making games with their children/family and to see b) young people making games. Never played a balloon!

Cool art style, adds a lot to the humor. I wish it wasn't so short, the controls were very tight! Could have been a nice, long platformer...

The art is not only well done but implemented well; it looks and feels like playing a kid's drawing! However, you should not have used Disasterpeace's copyrighted music without permission. :(

2 stvr: Sorry! I didn't write that I did this music. And also I think it's possible for jam category to use additional assets.

IMPORTANT NOTE: If you want to place in the final results, you NEED votes. The easiest way to get votes is by rating other games. Judging lasts for 3 weeks following the end of Ludum Dare. For best effect, rate 20 games as soon as possible. Rating more games is encouraged.


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.
