Snowmans Base

by Silveryard - Compo Entry

Your´re an Anti-Snowman agent and you made it into the headquarter of Big-Boss-Snowman. Take as much Information as you can (in form of briefcases) and avoid the patroling Snowmans. Every time you take one case another patrol will spawn

- left stick: move
- right stick: rotate

- wsad: move
- left and right arrow keys rotate

This was clearly not my theme but I´m proud to have at least a playable game after less than 24 hours. I hope you enjoy it

I'm not sure this is the final version of your game here :
- I could not find a briefcase in the level
- I met th snowman but there's no collision with him. So no gameover conditions.

Not much fun in this game, feedbacks are there but could be greatly improved, moves feels like you are moving a tank, no challenge.
That said, congrats for having something playable, the exerice is difficult !
Thanks for the game =)

Moving around your flashlight is really uncomfortable and takes too much time. Maybe rotating it using mouse or Monako-like field-of-view would be better? After I grabbed few cases I got much trouble in looking for another one, mainly because of slow rotation. Also there was bug, that guard didn't really want to notice me even though I was running in front of him. Anyway, congratulation on finishing this game and good luck! :)

Ok, it's not bad, light effect work good and control are ok. I don't die or nothing when is pass over SnowMan and they don't even try to catch me. But it's a good job in only 24h !

Simple, but nice! Excellent raytracing. many cases are there? Wait, is it an endless game where every time you get a case another one spawns? It's not really clear. Anyway, what I would like is something that always shows where "you" are in the world, so the player doesn't lose track; a blue dot or something would be enough. Also, it's kind of slow and tedious to move your light around, I would personally speed up the rotation so you can look around faster. Good work, though!

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.
