Nice music! It gives a football game a lot of serenity ;)
Cool graphics!

Controls are a bit sluggish, also the ball get stuck in corners.

The music and visuals gave it a sad mood, but it was fun. I liked pushing the snowmen and beating them to the ball. It was satisfying getting a goal. I had a little trouble getting the ball out from the borders and corners, but it later worked to my advantage when I ran down the clock for the victory!

Very cute! And what a mellow match that was with that music :-)
The AI was kind of amazing clever and sometimes kind of amazing dumb.

Liking the background music and overall gameplay.

The other players seemed to swarm on the ball and cause it to quickly shoot around sometimes, but I can imagine that putting in an advanced player behaviour script would take more time than is given for Ludum Dare.

Great effort,

Nice little game. I enjoyed it. Relaxing.

Controls are pretty rough, but I like the somber mood. Not something you normally associate with soccer. Oh, maybe the ball is a snowman head? That would justify the mood.

At first the music kinda felt a little bit off, but it grows on you and become so soothing to play.
I got stuck in corners very often, but very nice job!

Love the music but I don't like much when people use xmast assest, it seems that all that people prepared the assets before the jam :/

The music makes it feel like the most somber game of soccer ever played. Controls are a bit slow, but it's pretty fun. I'd have either slowed the ball down, or sped up the snowman move speed. Some ability to change which snowman you control may have been good. Well done, overall.

Hi there Myyyvothrr, nice to see another one of your creations. Great work, keep that up! :D
I really like the background music and the idea.

I really liked the graphical style. The controls felt a little sluggish, but I did manage to score some goals :) Nice music as well. Good work.

Really relaxing soccer game with snowmen! The music fit surprisingly well with the art style and the soft colors. There was some wonky AI stuff where the other team would shoot the ball on their own goal. Great job!

Game is a lot of fun, although a lot of snowmen clump together into one big cluster and just kinda hold the ball in one place.

I found the music kind of hilariously desolate. It definitely gave this game its own vibe. Really, though, these guys are kicking a ball of snow around! That's pretty grim for a snowman. The music choice makes sense.

Gameplay worked really well, and I'm pretty impressed with the AI. The rolling snowman bottoms were a nice touch. Very nice compo entry :)!

Loved everything about it, not even kidding. It's strange, sad and heartwarming at the same time.

Dec 16, 2014 @ 2:22pm

That was cool. A shame the ball didn't behave properly when hitting the sides.. can't you just let it bounce back? Like two lines of code. :( However, it's still very fun, I liked holding the ball and just take it to the other goal instead of shooting immediately, which was my intuitive strategy at first.
Also quite nice visuals and the music was.. and interesting choice. :D

I liked the AI and the art. The controls could be improved.

I recorded when I played the game: http://youtu.be/QOH4RuCZB8o

Overall it's a fun take on a football game, and I love the animations of the snowmen. A dash button or something to possibly give an edge (preferably something with a downside, so that it's a tactical decision when you want to use it) would have been a nice addition. And for my taste, the AI could have been a bit more competent (even if it wouldn't follow the rules), but it was still an enjoyable experience. Thanks!

Nice graphics and music! I Included it in part 12 of my Ludum Dare 31 compilation video series, if you would like to check it out :) http://youtu.be/Wy_mvMH2L7Q

Fun innovative game - super tough tho!

Would have been awesome to see online leader boards

Haha this is the most realistic football game I've ever played. At least, it's the one that most accurately models the level of football I play. Music didn't feel very appropriate, but loved everything else. The AI defenders were even helpful, which is no small achievement in this type of game. Okay one of them scored an own goal after I typed that, but I stand by my first statement about this being an accurate representation of bad football players. Great work

not a lot of control in the game, so it becomes a lot of chasing the ball hoping to be able to kick it the right direction. and music really doesn't fit the mood of the game
