Do you want to kill a snowman?

by Tunuko - Jam Entry

Silly little game thrown together in Construct 2 (I don't code!)

Art work was done by a fellow student (who has made an account to comment info I have here already! Haha, ludumacc) while I made sure stuff worked!

We took the Jam quite casually and didn't put as much time into this as some of you guys. We just entered for the giggles :P

-=UPDATE=-

As some one asked about ammo - You refill by grabbing batteries and right clicking to recharge. If you have 0 power AND 0 batteries, then surviving 10 seconds will score you a free refill :)

-=UPDATE 2=-

CONTROLS -
Move - WASD
Shoot - Left Click
Aim - Mouse
Reload - Right Click
Build Iceblocks - Space (with 5 snowballs)

The feel of this game is really good, but it's very hard :D
Is it possible to get more ammo?

Nothing comes up when I click on the link, it might just be my side though.

Pretty good game. I am very impressed by animation of snowman with a red scarf. Overall, I like this grungy style graphics. What I don't like thats when you frozen in ice cube it takes too long to wait for game restart.

Awesome job with the engine work, Really glad we did this! And thanks for the kind comments guys ^^ To Drtizzle- yes you can get more ammo. You use a battery powered hairdryer- you need 5 battery cells to get a battery, then right click to reload :)

Sorry, 1 battery for a reload. You need 5 snowballs to make a barrier with space :)

The theme is awesome, had me laughing at the title.

It is a bit hard tho but still it feels cool. I don't have a QWERTY so it doesn't help either with the controls.

The game would be better if it had the ability to turn around and fire in that direction. Otherwise, good start.

Entertaining, especially the hair drier.

Diagonal movement feels like it should kick in a little sooner. And that damned ice block, I assume you can't break it. Otherwise a pretty decent entry.

Addictive game with the most hilarious weapon! hair dryer LOL

Lovely graphics and audio but the gameplay felt clumsy.

Cool game but hard to control and take the control.
I find it to slippery. Creepy snowman face! :-)

Well made!

I was impressed at how much content you actually had. Various types of mobs (Even Big ones :P ), the power ups (Ring of Fire effect was awesome). The Block building idea was great, but could use some polish. The randomness of the ammo drops also had a huge impact on how hard it was- But all in all I was positively surprised. Great work!

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.
