Good fun. Simple, effective and enjoyable. I would have liked to be able to move the mouse at the same time as moving the character though.

Really awesome, love the big snowman which shot out multiple shots at a time. solid game :D

Update on my comment, seems that moving the mouse and typing is a limit of the maching I am using at the moment, not to do with your game.

simple and fun, the Boss is good but I think the game get hard really fast

Dec 9, 2014 @ 4:10pm

Very nice, not overly difficult but still challenging. Pretty fun too.

This is a really creative idea for a shmup! Loved being able to charge of slapshots but wish they did a bit more damage. Music is funky but starts to get repetitive after a while. Stronger enemies are TOUGH! Would love to see some reflections in the ice and/or snow particles to liven up the atmosphere a bit.

Oh God. Now I really hate smowmen. They are like Hydra snowmen. You kill one and then more of them appears!!! An they are killing me over and over again. Now I'll have snowmen nightmares :) Very good game!

I like the icy controls. and the changing and challenging taktiks of the snowmans. Nice game.

Interesting physics! Game is pretty bland though i do believe it has potential. Nice entry!

Lovely game. It seems like too hard to hit the snowman. But anyway it's funny!

Fresh idea! Really well done all over. Great art and music. Good feel to the shooting. But man it was pretty hard :P only got to the wave after 1st boss. Co-op for this would be cool, passing your buddy for extra damage one-timer :D Good job with this one!

Great overall game, really cool low-friction physics, but I couldn't manage to get all that far (only got to the fifth level). Also, nice sound effects.

I love the smooth mechanics and how fun the game is! Very innovative way of combining the actual theme with the faux theme ☃.
One thing that could make the game feel more polished, and perhaps a little harder to play, is to make the player move more like one would move when skating (don't know how that translates into the simulation, but I would love to see it!)
All in all it's a great entry.

Super great arcade game, only suggestion is that the friction on stopping is less, so that you can continue along a trajectory while charging a shot.

Juego sencillo y adictivo. He llegado a la tercera oleada y ya lo he visto demasiado dificil para mi. Felicidades.

Dec 17, 2014 @ 9:43am

Simple, addictive game. I have come to the third wave and I have already seen too hard for me. Congratulations.

Simple and good game. Like the audio and game concept. The
player control too smooth, hard to survival in higher level :)

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 (http://mysite.com/mygame.zip) and you will show up. Alternatively, if you just posted it, wait a minute. The cache may not have refreshed yet.

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.
