Hold On To Your Nuts

by PartyBoat - 48 Hour Compo Entry

Hold On To Your Nuts is a game about a chipmunk collecting nuts and storing them underground.


Movement: WASD

I've completed my first game ever! There were about 50 other features planned including shooting peanuts, lawnmowers, and epic music, but that's the way these things go I suppose.

The only borrowed asset was the free font Visitor by Aenigma.

The title and theme of the game made me laugh out loud. The way the snakes bounce off of one another makes for some real challenge, preventing you from just remembering or waiting for patterns like most other games. Plus, it's a chipmunk, and how many games feature one of those. Nice job.

Cool game! The sounds were a bit scary though (loud)

SO MANY SNAKES. I like the snakes. Very enjoy the loud sound and abrupt ending. I got two peanuts. And then snake.

The game is like some form of Frogger on crack. I liked it.

Thanks for the feedback everyone! I really wanted to put some epic music in the game but I ran out of time. I thuroughly recommend listing to something like Guile's Theme ( while you play. Have fun!

Very nice! Impressive for your first game ever, especially considering Unity can be difficult with 2D games.

Yeah it was a lot more of a pain then I was expecting. I'd probably go with something else next time!

Loved the visuals, that is such a cute squirrel! Fun game, very lighthearted, my only complaints are the audio is a bit jarring and the controls feel a bit unresponsive, I sometimes felt myself expecting to turn and still be running the same direction I was previously running in. Overall, I liked it, good job!

Meh. A good game but it was too hard and the movement was annoying

Nice fun entry. Very simple, but that's what makes it good fun.

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.
