Snowman Saving

by Johan Blade - Compo Entry

Save as many snowmen as you can before the time runs out.


get more snowmen to follow you by picking up carrots, then when you have some get them over the road into the green zone. and when you and all your snowmen are there you they are saved and can go out again to gather more). Also don't let them be hit by cars or kids. Have Fun!

Great entry, really fun concept. There seems to be no penalty in sprinting all the time? (Except for a weary finger).

Nice game. It was really fun. For me the audio did not work so I won't rate that. But overall it felt like a classic arcade game.

Audio didn't worked. Unfortunately movement feels bit clunky as it's been really easy to get stuck. Graphics is almost ok as for me the palette (colors) seems inconsistent. But I liked idea of the game :-)

Fun game, I kind of wish the kids could get into the street and die when they get ran over XD. Also should snowman blood be white or blue or a light blue?

A very good little entry. The concept is easy to grasp, and trying to avoid the kids is fun.

Perhaps a little too easy to get stuck when trying to move around objects, but overall a solid effort.

I get addicted to this stuff, man! Great job

needed 2 rounds to figure out, what it is about. In the first (lucky me) the kid got stuck in the upper right corner between trees, before he even had a chance to bother me. I like the idea, therefore 5 on innovation. Graphics are cool, except for the cars :( The time is maybe a bit too long.

Haha, agree with efux - damn kids! Fun game, felt good saving snowmen rather than shooting them or whatever as in some games.

Good game. Nice risk reward with the trail of snowmen/increasing number of kids etc.
Audio didn't work for me, I assume it had audio as there are audio files, but nothing ever played. Playing on Windows.

Took me a bit to "get it" but it's a pretty fun game once you get the hang of it! Stupid kids!

It took a while for me to figure out you had to return the snowmen, and then you can really screw you up if you go there too much, as the game becomes hard very fast as the number of kids increase.

Beatuful and fun, nevertheless ;-D

Very fun game. Scored 158.

It's a little buggy, I didn't hear any sound even though it had audio files and after the time up it just froze. No way to replay without closing it.

Still, very nice game.

This is a really cool game! I like how the babies follow your movement exactly.

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.

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.
