Nice game, good job! Simple idea, but it is fun and challenging. Also great graphics.

Very cool, really liked the graphics and the bouncy rock. Could have done with some sound effects, and maybe a shadow on the rock to tell if it's in the air or on the ground. Would also be cool to have the rock bounce off the squirrels, as it's hard in the later waves to chase after it.

Works on linux ;) Graphics is nice.. it's hard to aim precisely at least for me.. also I managed to threw my only rock to darkness and then was really painful to get it back :) Good job otherwise

Polished looking game. I like the interpretation of the theme. It could use a little more variation though. Letting the enemies steal all acorns except the last one, and protect that one, seems to be the winning strategy. There seems to be a bug in it, where the enemies take multiple acorns at a certain point, even though you only have one left. That's the point where I died :-)

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.
