Great presentation but NOTHING WORKS! 2 stars.
Also please add keyboard support. I have controllers but I know plenty of people who don't.

Fair shout - Controllers should work but keyboard is pretty much a must. Give me 20 minutes.

Graphics, music and sounds are all really good. My one pet-peeve is that you can't move while swinging the axe.

Nice concept. Really cool graphics.
Maybe you should allow movements during the smash animations, the game would gain some dynamism.

My friend and I played with controllers. The concept is good, but the music is misfitting and the controls are difficult.

I expected it to be a fighting game. Sort of surprising when it was just about getting mushrooms dead. Also, the time limit was a bit small; I'd suggest perhaps adding powerups to spice up the game and then increasing the time limit. A pumping beat would dramatically help.

That said, it's not a bad game, and the graphics were great.

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.
