by MokuJin - Jam Entry

Team Member : Yves + Malvina + Damien + JB + Paul

First participation, without any preparation, not even the framework (O_o).
Never do that again !

Most of the code has been done by Yves in the early stage. His holidays starts sunday, so i can't stay all the week-end.

Malvina helped friday evening to understand the framework.
Damien has done mostly refactoring and JB add some features.

Music by Paul.

How to play ?
The goal is to catch baby mario with the fishing rod.
Every catched baby worth 1 point.
Spawning at random, white baby worth 6 points.
Every NOT catched baby remove 1 point.
The game is over at 0 point.

When you hit play, you choose the class, wich was design to change the fishing rog's skin (not implemented)

Warning ! It start really fast !

Premiere participation, sans preparation, meme pas le framework.

La majorite du code est fait par Yves au debut du week-end (merci a lui)
Il n'a pas pu rester car il partait en vacances le dimanche matin.
Malvina a aide, le vendredi soir, a  la decouverte du framework.
Damein a fait du refactoring, et JB a rajoute quelques features.

La musique est faites par Paul.

Comment jouer ?
Le but (relatif) du jeu est d'attraper les bebe avec la canne a peche.
Chaque bebe attrape donne un point.
Alleatoirement on a des bebe blanc qui rapporte 6 points.
Chaque bebe qui arrive a passer enleve un point.
Quand on a zero point, on a perdu.

Au debut on choisit la classe de personnage, qui devait changer le skin de la canne a peche (non implementer)

Attention ca va vite au debut !

Best game of the world ? I don't know :)
Le principe est un peu simple, mais rien que pour la pochette d'album - je dis oui ++

Runs great on my Android tablet. Lots of fun and it smelled like something or other.

Not the most riveting gameplay out there, but good job on finishing something for your first Ludum Dare!

Well done for not using a framework. I did that for my first few LD's. You learn a lot more that way.

@littleball : we use a framework, but we choose it a few hours before the theme was released.

It could be even better if it was synced with the rythm :)

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.
