Snowman or Astroman?

by rhill - Jam Entry

Assemble snowman.


Use mouse to launch, arrow keys to rotate snowman part.

You can decide for yourself whether you won.


Technically everything is on one screen, but I threw in the Deep Space and Snowman themes while I was at it.

haha I don't know why but I played this a few times :).
Nice for what it is, I didn't know how to restart the game though and had to reload every-time I wanted to play again it would be good to have that

Lol, my snowman ended up looking like some weird mutated ice cream. Nice job!

It's a silly kind of fun, wound up having my snowman tip his hat.

Fun little game! It's super challenging to try and get those arms on straight. The talking tree was the perfect touch!

Those were my top two themes going into the vote!

I totally was clicking on the blinking items, wondering why they were just disappearing at first... ashamed. I am ashamed.

I like great job tree.

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.
