Played the web-based one, so I'm not sure whether it was a huge game file or a slow host. One or both.
Intro sequence is OK. Do you have the rights to that font?
Music is present but terrible.
Controls are sluggish and unresponsive.
Mechanics are a pretty basic and tired "collect the stars" with a "press <x> to change worlds" add-on. Seems pretty popular for this theme.
Graphics are terrible.
I think he may have been going for humor, but there wasn't much to laugh about.

Jabba vs. Bowser, who will win!

The game was amusing, though the controls confused me -- sometimes the jump key let me jump 2, 3, or more times. Sometimes I would get stuck not moving at all! That might have been conflict between the up and right keys.

I liked the idea but the game seemed to suffer from some major performance problems. I played the game in chrome. It stuttered quite a bit and seemed to continue my input after I had stopped holding keys. This led to very frustrating deaths.

Nice game but the controls could be a little better.

Definitely rough around the edges. I was having a lot of trouble with the controls. But hey, people are saying the same about my game so I can't fault you for that haha.

Great job! I continued to play this game, but I just couldn't make the 4th to 5th platform jump xD. I would bring up Jabba's speed so he's easier to control. If you bring up his speed the 4th to 5th platform jump should be possible. Good luck and good job! :D

Hey, I noticed the game runs WAY faster now, great job! now the only problem is when I go to see the overlord, there's a giant jump that would need 4 jumps to make it. That's all I could see, Great job :D

Malllot1: Have you tried to check the overworld to see if there are any platforms in there?

The game screen is blinking from time to time, when I play the web version (chromium). It would be less frustrating, if player had checkpoints, for example, respawn on previous platform (not in the beginning of the level).

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.
