Adding enemies is pretty fun) press Z as fast as you can or ask friend to do it for you -> enjoy kicking lots of pirates. ))

Not bad, but could maybe need a little more objectives, you don't lose, you don't get hit etc. I like the theme idea on a *screen play* ! Good work : )

Neat idea. I enjoyed kicking them when they got close. Pretty satisfying.
It was also fun spawning a whole bunch of them.

Good use a little work in the game play department as there wasn't very much to do.

Nice job!

Most fun I had was dacing around to the music using jump and the kick button. Then shooting enemies whilst kicking in the air. Funny.

A game where you create your ennemies yourself ? Really ? That's a new concept, for sure ! XD Good graphics and music, but need an idea something less repetitive, I don't understand why the spectators stays here and are not boring... :P

As others said, the gameplay could use some improvement, but I think you have an idea worth exploring and am curious to seewhat you could do with it if you had more time.

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. 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.
