Difficult, but fun and also funny. Pretty solid game overall.

I like the graphics and music, the idea is cool, but the game could be improved. Throwing out enemies is fun, but it's very hard to avoid them, so the game lasts usually a few seconds for me.

Anyway, congratulations for completing a nice and working game in 48h!

Pretty simple but fun for a while. Good job!

This is hilarious. At first it seems unforgiving though, maybe if your character could take a few hits I dunno. Once you get past the super easy dieing throwing guys makes up for everything. I found that I could throw multiple doods if I timed it right. I hope that more people see this as its a lot of fun.

With the right strategy, the game is actually pretty easy! But nice work! The art is fun and I like how you can hit other guys by throwing them xD

I really like the character designs. It was a little difficult to figure out what was acceptable as a grab, and what would get you killed. Overall, though, pretty fun.

Solid and fun mechanics. I guess I was supposed to be playing as hulk hogan :). The grab miss insta-kill was a pain.

Good job! I had to cheat a little to win, I stood in the top left corner, where no enemies ever went except the 3-4 that spawned there. By the time the minute was up, all of the enemies had gotten stuck on the edge of the ring, so it was really easy to walk down and grab the belt :P

Hah. That is one long minute.

Picking up and throwing people was quite satisfying. After dying a few times, I found that staying to one side in the mid-level made the game a whole lot easier. Enemies tended to get stuck on the right side of the ring.

It was fun, and I enjoyed it, but probably would have gotten bored had it gone on any longer.

Simple but still pretty enjoyable. The mechanics were solid and the graphics and audio worked really well together.

I like the graphics and music. Fun idea with the wrestlers, but could use more animations.

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.
