ha, great fun. Very sensitive but that's the point. Thought I was on to a winner just going backwards the whole time but it is too slow. Nice work.

Nice, really liked it although I absolutely suck. Would be great with some 8bit music to go with that style. Great job.

Hilarious. That riding mower has been souped-up. Very smooth controls and impossible to do well, but that is why it is fun.

I like how it is terrible to mow the flowers but okay to slam into the parked car at 40 mph.

Who would have thought mowing the lawn could be so much fun?

Surprisingly fun. The game over screen is great.

I would love to play more levels of this game!

Interesting concept. The controlls are just sensitive enough to make it challenging.

I laughed out loud the first time I ran into a fence and read the word "shit" like it was delivered in a totally dejected manner. Props for getting a legit "lol" out of me.

You're supposed to mow only the flowers right? That's what I did. High Score.

Control are hard to master, but fun to play ! Avoid mowing flower is so hard.

I'm about as good as mowing this lawn as my own. Fun game! Struggled with controlling it. I wished the mower was a little slower. Steering was a little awkward too, I mean it is a lawn mower and those things are hard to navigate to begin with but wanted a slightly easier thing to drive. Good submission!

Quite a simple game but yet it's still fun, really liked the way how it showed mowed lawn! great job!

Really fun and addictive game. My best total score was 70. Thank you for this great entry!

Dec 11, 2014 @ 1:28pm

This is really fun and was a nice surprise seeing the text when you ran over the flowers. Game is difficult but I think that works perfectly for this. Could see myself passing plenty of time on this when I have a spare few minutes. Great entry.

Damn, I always did horribly. Nice concept and music. And it move forward too fast or move backwards too slow. I don't know xD

Overall, I like it xD

Dec 12, 2014 @ 11:27pm

This was neat. I liked the penalty mechanic.

Hi there. This is great. Took a second or two to realise can only steer while moving. Good job!

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.
