Very cute, simple, and addictive... I just couldn't stop!

I liked it, this reminded me of Toss the Turtle and Minecraft, a good combination! :) Good job!

The upgrade system is weirdly addictive.

Really nice idea. Made it to the end at 238m which was a great touch. And as has been mentioned the shop is a great addition on making the game addictive.

That is a really addictive game. Cute, simple and I couldn't stop until I see Mrs. mole.

Fun little game. Only thing I didn't like was the reset of progress downwards each time

Claws level: 89
Money level: 21

Good job! :D

Neat entry, Pretty on the nose of the theme however. The upgrade system was addictive and I couldnt stop till I won

Very addictive. I made it down to the rocks at 88m, I like the design of the progression here.

Pretty awesome game. I love any game where you can buy stuff!

I am a sucker for shop/upgrade games so this went straight to my soft spot. Nice work!

Very addicting game. My boyfriend and I sat for about half an hour to see who could complete it the fastest.

Good game, I love the fast paced dig mechanics ! Very addictive !

And addictive indeed! Glad there was a nice little end screen, otherwise I would've been pretty disappointed.
I finished with 46/9/7 :D

The first couple minutes of this game are quite fun! Towards the end it gets a little repetitive though (reached about 200).

Very addictive. Could not stop playing, had to play it to the end.

I won (46/11/10) ! That was fun :)

I don't know if it was intended, but you can "fly" by being next to an edge and spamming jump :D

Addictive, but not in a fun way, more in a grindy way. Base system works very well though.

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.
