☃s Revenge

by sathorn - Jam Entry

Why did you not vote for ☃? He is very angry now and wants revenge.

How to play:
Move with arrow keys. Or left stick.
Melt your snowman with SPACE. Or A.

Tech: JS/WebGL/WebAudio
Engine: Phaser
Art & Sound: Homemade
Code Quality: Complete garbage
Tools: GIMP, Audacity

Fixed a bug where you would move faster when moving in multiple axis and adapted the speed to compensate. And by multiple i mean both.
Fixed the sound in Firefox.
"Ported" the game to gamepad.
Removed an unshaded frame before the outro.

Pretty cool. Its kinda difficult, I feel the timer before melting should be a bit slower.

I like the twist when the people get to the side of the screen. I certainly didn't expect it! Great job!

The humans ran away pretty quickly and the snowmen melt pretty fast. Catching anyone was hard.

A masterpiece. The Andy Warhol's Campbell Soup Can of gaming--it shows the beauty of gaming just as it shows it's artifice. Timeless classic for the ages. Should be mandatory for children, under penalty of having their fingers removed.

Hahaha. Dunno why people voted for this rather than a theme. Funny how I can take my revenge! Pretty solid presentation also.

I love the concept! And I liked the twist when they reached the side. My little light would go out the right hand side of the screen and get lost once in awhile. Also, I think I got pretty good at it but I still wasn't able to kill every person, they just moved too fast. +1 for SNOWMAN!

No,no,no .. you totally killed me.. I Love the story its fun! I love innovation ! XD i love humor ! :D also check my project if you have some time x)

I laughed really loudly when I see the people cant escape from the screen. It's great fun!

Chasing a human is very difficult because snowman is not faster than a human.

Although the human can not leave the screen, it seems that when human reach the right border, they become invincible and you still fail the game...

I could not manage to catch any of the humans at all. Pretty funny take on the theme though. Nice work.

Gotta admit, it was funny. And rather well made.
P.S. Snowman theme sucked, and anyone who voted for it, should reevalute everything in their lives. Really, vote with your brean, not with your heart.

I found this one a little bit too difficult. Probably something is wrong with me. :P
The look and feel is great, I like the sounds also. The only thing I don't like, that it makes me feel poor skilled player. :D

Great take on the theme, it's a bit too difficult though.

Good work!

Nice entry, was a little difficult to catch humans. Perhaps a slightly longer time to be a snowman would help.

Great job. nice take on ☃ :-D
pretty cool concept and nice mood.
a bit too difficult.

The wait time at the beginning is a bit boring I think but fortunately you don't have to reload the page to replay.
I like the humor.

It's pretty difficult. I dig the humor, I wanted the snowman to win as well. :) Good job!

Cool game. It's really hard to get them before they reach the end of the screen, but I didn't know you could still defeat them, sooo I won when I reloaded. Nice work.

Haha! I was really unsure, especially with the text tutorial going very quickly, but I was so wrong. The humour was great, the gameplay was unique. Sounds were good. I loved it. :)

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.
