Cute, funny, I love it!

It's not very scientifically accurate, however. Sheesh.

I love the art style! It's like "hm? oh. i didn't wanted to do that! *runs sadly away while stomping more guys*".

omg so much fun! art style is great you should have added some sounds ontop of that and it would have been a 11/10 ;)

If you just had added a score (for each killed enemy) and a health meter, you would have had a pretty cool and funny game. With some SFX it would had been great!

Still, it's quit funny (and really, really, REALLY cute!) on its on. Only not much of game... =/

A cute little game. Throw in a healthbar and a highscore and it would be a fun little arcade game.

Really nice graphics! Love the vector art! Also the tail whip is a really nice subtle touch

Good job! I hate minions! But in all seriousness it was a ton O fun, and very silly. I do wish there was a counter for all the ones you killed, and maybe if it could breath fire that would make this game even better!

Even with all bloodshed, this game is so cute! I think some background music could have turned this into a very relaxing game, hahaha

I liked the "SEND EM FLYING MOVE" and just generally making marmalade pancakes.

You've got a simple art style that works amazingly well! The design of the monster is great. The whipping and stomping is fun as it is and could definitely work in a bigger game.

Cool game, it's fun to let the humans build up and do a big stomp. I love the little human splats.

Great art and very fun to play!

Yes. Yes yes yes! Please take this idea further after LD!

Aug 29, 2015 @ 10:21pm

Love the graphics! +1 for the score and the health meter, though not taking any damage does allow for gathering up about 100 little cavemen to stomp all at once...

Cute... except for the blood. Poor caveguys :(

SO CUTE~~!! Great art style! Missed the sound effects, but I see the lack of time xp
+1 score and health bar (maybe A LOT of health, so you can still gather cavemen)!

Very nice project guys, i really love it, please check our game too and if you liked it give us a vote. Look for Road to hell and enjoy.

The art in this is great and makes the simple gameplay fun. Spent quite awhile just running around and jumping causing havoc. Cutest game I've played that had you stomping little people.

great art style, didn't feel like much of a game. Hitting guys away with the tail feels really good, but having at least a basic/simple objective would have been super helpful.

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 (http://mysite.com/mygame.zip) 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.
