The idea is good and I love the lava. It needs some feedback when you get hit or collect items.

very original idea with good graphics, nice first entry..gameplay could have some more depth, but i did make hell freeze over, it was definitly worth it..

The realization is really neat for a 72h game (controls, arts, music). But I'm not sure about the gameplay : I actually ran in circle for 1m30 without being in danger. I finally fall into the lava by lack of concentration. It's cool if you continue working on it, I encourage you to work on the pacing of the survival, especially at the beginning. Good luck!

Really nice game, great graphics. The gameplay needs little something though, something to keep the survival more interesting, I ended up just running away from dozen skulls for minutes.

Nice job! Liked the aesthetic.

Was funny, lasted 3 minutes running in circles.

Pressing space would spawn other snowmans though, bug?

Cool (and hot) visuals, running fast as hell in circles was a bit stupid, but funny gameplay. Missing points are lack of sounds on bonus pickup and some difference in enemies.

it looks pretty and IS pretty, and there might be a lack of gzameplay, but what you got there is way sufficent for a first entry, i really hope you'll make a more complete version of it and share it on gamejolt. could be AWESOME

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.
