Pete, The Petard

by Saf - 48 Hour Compo Entry

Theme: You only get one.

Pete is a professional petard. His job is to carry explosives and blow up the enemy base.
When you play as Pete, you have to destroy all enemy supplies and troops, but you only get one chance as the loyal petard also blows up with his bomb!

[ Arrow Keys] to move
[ Space ] to Blow up!
[ R ] to restart.

Destroy all Enemy Supplies and Troops to finish a level.

Could not play, as every time I hit space-bar it scrolls down the page.

Cute game ! Funny and very nice use of the theme. Great job :)

Very nice although every time I'd'd blow myself up I could still press the space bar and the screen would shake and play the explosion sound even when I'm not alive.

A really polished entry, with great graphics. I'm really impressed by how you pulled all this off in just 48 hours.

Only issue I noted is that the small blocks you have placed on the ground to prevent the player from pushing boxes so that the game is in an unwinnable state don't actually do a very good job of stopping the blocks (due to the slippery physics)

This is one game I could easily see developed further and published for $$$ on mobile platforms.

Really funny and entertaining! It's one of the first games in this LD that brought a smile to my face. Good job! (also, good graphics, sounds and levels). The jumping controls could use some tweaking (I keep slipping on platforms in some levels)

Nice, it got challenging quickly, love the art style. The levels could do with a do-over button, the pause goes to the beginning which gets frustrating. :(

One of my favorites. Only the sound isn't matching to the rest of the game, but that doesn't change that it's a good game.

Amazing! This is superior to many complete casual games!

Nice work! This was pretty fun entry. I liked the visuals and sounds a lot. There is something oddly satisfying in that victory jiggle.

Impressive art. Reminds me of Age of Empires II, with the guys with the barrels!

Nice game, kept me interested until the end. I like how even the guards armed with bows walk while sleeping. ^^
It could use some music though, and maybe a bit of backstory? I wanted to know more about Pete!

Lovely art, style, atmosphere and tech. I found the physics and controls difficult, but I read your post explaining how you built the game and I'm full of awe and enthusiasm for your approach.

awesome game! this is a really great concept - simple yet challenging. a shame all those little petards had to die ;)

Great game with good graphics and audio. I enjoyed playing it very much. But I think the progression of the difficulty could be better. It seems the first 3 levels are really easy, then there are some levels with much higher difficulty and the last levels are easy again. But overall a very polished looking game and more levels would be nice.

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.

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.
