Flamethrowers vs. Snowmen

by jotson - Compo Entry

Use your mighty flamethrower to fight back the merciless horde of demonic snowpeople!

Arrows to move. Spacebar to shoot. Flamethrower has poor range when fuel is low.

Made with Phaser.

So fun! It looks like an insane amount of work went into the graphics, even the loader looks good. Nice work., Also, I'd definitely love to give this a try in real life sometime ;)

Hi there. Like the visuals and sounds. Nice shooting effects. Found it difficult to play. Nice horrible snowmen... Good job!

Nice art and audio! :D Hero looks badass with his mighty flamethrower but those snowmen look rather scary don't they? :D

Like for the graphics. The game is well done, but there is too little fuel to defeat all snowmen

You ran out of fuel to easily, other than that it was fun and the snowmen looked awesome! I watched an episode of Scooby Doo with my kids last night that had an evil snowman, but yours definitely look a lot scarier.

nice, I really got into it when I found I could jump on their heads mario style to damage them too.

Funny game. I Included it in part 15 of my Ludum Dare 31 compilation video series, if you would like to check it out :)

Nice game, but I run out of fuel all the time. Probably this part needs more balancing. :)

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. 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.
