It was a fun game, really random, but I had to play it because I love pineapples :)

Overall, pretty fun! Felt like I should be able to blow up the bridge and go down below, but it didn't happen.

Looks really nice. Pretty limited in scope, and very difficult since your only attack is very slow, difficult to aim dynamite. Jumping on the heads of the swarming enemies indefinitely was funny (although sometimes you randomly die when doing that. Not sure which one is the bug).

Hi, this is Vector from the Victory Garden team! (posting under Solifuge's account)

49 pineapples! I had some trouble starting the game at first--no many how many times I clicked, it wouldn't load. This one was neat in its interpretation of the theme for sure with a nice mood and relaxing audio, though I wish there had been some more strategy or variation in the gameplay.

Sweet! It was really fun and I liked the music a lot. However the sombrero wearing skeleton demons take the cake! Awesome game:D

That was random. Not sure what it has to do with the theme, but your animations are nice and smooth and the game controls well which is a plus. After a few tries I found you could bounce on the enemies heads, but after a while I just dies midair. Is bouncing slowing taking down health or something?

Fun game, really random and didn't really get the connection to the theme. Insanely difficult as the game went on, liked it.

Aiming with the dynamite was quite fun. I also like the tiny dark characters.

Stingy tainted pineapples are stingy (and bouncy :)) A funny but hard game :)

Also the Start button didn't work for me on Chrome/win7 but it worked in FF. (Maybe there is an HTML element over the game in Crhome?)

I died mid-air too, with 29 pineapples in my hands and throwing dynamite all over the place. What a cool way to die.

Pretty cool, agree with hyouko, I thought you would be able to go below ground when I saw that bridge thingie? Also I found space a little tricky to hit, the up arrow key would have been better IMO. Sweet graphics & audio.

Simple game yet quite amusing! Was the theme hidden in the fact beneath their body there were pineapples?o.o

the weapon worked pretty well, gave the game a unique feel so far as my fingers could tell

This was a very fun game! :D Simple yet effective graphics and great audio. I don't know what else to say. Brilliant.

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.
