Omn Nom

by Mathieu Muller - Compo Entry

OmnNom is a Pacman clone... under LSD. Move with arrow keys, fetch bonus, and avoid the ghosts. Be warned, some kind of bonus... aren't really one.

To start the game, move the character on the blue triangle (play) icon.
To exit the game, move the character on the red square (stop) icon.

Note that there isn't any end screen when your live count goes to 0. Didn't had the time. Exit the game by moving to the stop icon.

Title is definitely fitting, I can say that much :D

Fun version of Pac-Man with some weird but cool sounds.

Crazy music, wish it looped. Other than that, pretty decent pacman clone, and I like the way you start the game.

Oh, and I couldn't tell what the bonuses were doing, so I don't know which bonus is not a bonus.

They are 7 kinds of bonuses:
- Red musical note: Stop the music (because when it gets in your head, you can't remove it)
- Green musical note: Start the music (it's already in your head, why bother)
- Overdose (bigger point): Slow you down. You know... you need to digest that one.
- Invulnerability (yellow star): grants you 3 seconds of invulnerability to ghosts
- One up (heart): give you one supplemental life
- Green, Yellow, Red apple: 100, 200 and 500 bonus points.

The installer is done automatically by my IDE, it ensures that every dependency is installed along the game. What was your problem?

This was alright. It was just a Pac-Man clone with nice music in the background, and slightly shinier graphics, but it was pretty fun. One thing to mention is that it doesn't have a game over screen when you run out of lives, so I was still running around for a bit, and was confused why I wasn't picking anything up. Still pretty neat though.

Haha, the music is awesome! Overall a fun PacMan clone. I responded to your question in the comments of my game. It's usually best to have at least the option to download the game without an installer for Ludum Dare, cause many probably have XNA4 installed anyway and installers tend to clutter the system's registry.

I liked it overall. The only thing I would say is maybe add some different AI personality, or maybe they just chase you a bit more because it was easy to dodge them but other than that I liked it!

Just a small note regarding installers. The problem is with Ludum Dare games, is that you've got like over 2000 of them to try out and even if only 10% are installers, that's still 200 games that need to be installed before you can actually play them. It's one extra step you have to take before you can test it out.
That said, I've just downloaded your game, gonna install it and then get back to you with some rating and notes :D

Interesting variation on the Pac-Man theme. The movement feels stilted as it moves from tile to tile, rather than it gliding. I like the fact you have to run over the play sign to start the game and you can quit by running over the stop.
Respawning dots make it a bit more interesting as well.
The ghosts could be a little less random though.
Love the sound effects and music.

Hello asobitech, thanks for testing my game. It's my second ludum dare, and the first game I made for Windows. I'll upload a non installer version!

Funny variant of an old classic. I liked the music.

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.
