Knowing the effort you have put in the making of this game is enough to congrat about the result. It's true there might some features that could have been improved, but nonetheless it's a really fun game to play.
Keep up the good work, Ollie!

Pretty fun once I got the hang of it. I'd be interested in seeing more tower defense elements, more kinds of static defenses and such.

Shooting doesn't have any punch to it. The entire game never really feels like I'm doing anymore more than just clicking on pictures of snowmen.

Note: you left Pompeii in the download, presumably by accident.

Ollie this was really worth the wait. Even if my finger is now dead :D
Game definitely becomes impossible after a while, but that can't be helped with such a short window of time to test it.
Overall i think it was a good game that stuck to the theme and gave me some fun for a while.
PS i couldn't find the cheese D:

Good work man,I know it's very hard to make a game in such little time.

A nice concept! Clicking on the enemies felt strangely unresponsive, sometimes I could quickly destroy a snowman with three consecutive clicks, and sometimes I needed to click 3-4 times for one hit to land. This made the game a lot harder, but also somewhat frustrating.

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 ( 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.
