Controllable iceberg is the best idea ever. Cracked up over this one :)

Plot twist: you are the iceberg that sunk the Titanic.

The foreshortened sprites were an interesting choice.

Took me a while to figure out the controls, but once I did was a fun game! Nice take on the theme and pretty innovative idea.

Hahaha, nice - after spending 48 hours making my game about AVOIDING icebergs, it's nice to play your game where the shoe is on the other foot.

Also, very cool graphical stylings and water sounds.

Pretty cool. The graphics are nice. It took me two tries before I realized what I was suppose to be doing. I was a bit confused by the sound of just hitting the ship (thought I may've been damaging it when I was damaging myself). In the end, I didn't really get the hang of it.

Haha, yeah. I don't know why, but I was laughing at that iceberg. I couldn't really figure out how to "jump" though.

Though I was unable to win this game, my heart will go...

pffft, no, can't do it. Funny concept for a game here. Couldn't really figure out a good way to time my jumps, though.

Fun. The controls were a bit hard to grasp it first, but very nice game!

Controls needed a bit of tweaking, but otherwise fun and gotta love that iceberg face.

Great concept. Timing the underwater "jumps" felt kinda random though. The graphics and audio are great ("ICESOMEEEE").

Awesome artstyle! :D

Sadly, I couldn't really grasp the controls after a few tries. Or maybe it's the gameplay I didn't quite grasp.

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.
