Strangely addictive! And a little twisted :)

Top score was 2200. Spent the longest in this game so far

Addictive...! And sounds are nice :) I just don't see "You only get one".

One of the most fun I have played so far. Graphics are spartan but fit nicely together. Sounds are good too.

Very addictive. But i feel you could have added a little more to it, like some sort of powerups, that make your gator bigger and easier to land on those preys. And i didnt like floaty controls

1800, but it would have been higher if there was an instant restart ;D
I could imagine playing this on iPhone using tilt...

Agreed with previous comments this would be great as a little mobile release, I could see my daughter playing it for hours :D

2950. Really cute, but I can't see how the theme plays in this one. Still a nice game!

Awesome game! Getting the jumps is actually very satisfying thanks to the balanced difficulty, graphics and sound effects. Good job! :D

Haha fun game. Silly and simple. Perfect for LD.

The core mechanic is really good, the game is fun, addictive and has a nice flow. I'd would suggest keeping track of a best record and also bonus for aerial combos.

Really fun to play game with nice graphics. It looks simple, but is hard to master. Treegators may have to eat only once, but sadly it seems this one time lasts to their death.

Enjoyed playing this quite a few times through.

Great game!
It lacks a concise art style, music and killing combo... but other than that it's already really fun!

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.
