Interesting take on the theme. :p I really like how you made the sound effects reflect the level of attention, and how organic they sound. The "shut up" cracked me up. The dodging is fluid, and I liked the idea of having to balance coolness and attention. It's simple, but it works! I do think that the graphics could have used some improving though. Overall, good job! :)

After a repetition of "shut up" *sandwich toss* "ow" I went more with the wait till the bar is really low then throw the chalk. Found it a better strategy in the end.

The pupil I hate most is the girl that goes "la la la la"

Kind of reminded me of old school bus rides with all the stuff flying around. Pretty cool game just wasn't cool enough to get that last powerup on the far right

Haha, so I'm not a monster but stupid students think I'm and so they are throw stuff at me? That's pretty original!
Concept and gameplay are quite cool, despite the lack of challenge, I enjoyed!

That was quite fun and interesting. I don't think the relation to the theme is quite clear enough though.

Teacher is a monster is a good idea. Throwing food and books is a good idea too. Needs more of a challenge and more horrific things for teacher to do. Loved the audio, especially the "Shut up".

Great game, but too difficult to reach the the finale kind of discipline.

It's a fun + funny game, the although the graphics are honestly not very good, but they work well enough, I like the idea and the hoomer though. (This was posted by Geozermer using Newahs account, I'm the artist for his game.)

Mini Submission FAQ

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.

CAN I ENTER BOTH EVENTS?: You should pick 1 event, whichever you think it’ll do better in. If the idea is strong, and everything plays well enough, you can go Compo. If you’re a perfectionist, and would prefer people to play a more polished game, do the Jam. Historically, more games are entered in the Compo, but with more people and more time, Jam games have the potential to be better (that doesn’t mean they are). Many solo participants do enter the Jam.

If you made 2 games, unfortunately, the website doesn’t support multiple submissions per user. To submit your 2nd game, you will have to make a 2nd account. Only do this if you made 2 games. Alternatively, if one game is better than the other, then consider just entering the better game.

CAN I KEEP WORKING UNTIL THE DEADLINE?: Yes! Immediately after the 48 or 72 hours, we do something called Submission Hour. As the name suggests, it’s an extra hour for you to package, upload, and submit your games. If there were catastrophic issues trying submitting your game, or you misunderstood how submissions work, that’s okay. It happens. We’re flexible. If you need advice, check with the folks on IRC. If you need an admin, get in touch.

CAN I KEEP WORKING ON MY GAME?: Oh definitely! You should! But for the sake of judging, keep the Compo or Jam version around. You can include a link to the Post-Compo/Post-Jam version of your game on your games page, but sure your main links are the original version.

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 at least 20 games to improve your visibility (Coolness).

MY GAME CRASHES, IS UNBEATABLE, OR I MADE A TYPO: We allow you to fix crashes, win condition, or tiny bugs after the deadline. In a sense, this is like “porting” to support more players. We leave this open to interpretation, but generally speaking your game should be identical to the game you submitted. No new features, just fixing mistakes you should have caught had you been better rested.

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.

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.
