Drop Monsters on unsuspecting villages as you try to destroy the world. The more destruction you do, the more minions you can control.

Sound effects matched the thought of dropping goblins into a pit! The solider mechanic wasn't conveyed well enough though, maybe a indication that we've been hit that would of been good.

But love the concept!

Nicely done!

nicely done, especially for a 10 hour effort.

Reminds me of The Price is Right (Plinko!) and Pinball. Very cool, I like it. :)

Really cleaver idea! I included it in part 7 of my Ludum Dare 33 Compilation video series, if you would like to take a look :) youtu.be/Ly6pR3C_dVc

I would not have thought that plinko and tower defense would work out so well together. It was fun, I just wish there was more variety.

Extreme BIEBER!

Nice idea, I think it could do quite well on a mobile device with revamped graphics and a little more diversity.

Nicely done! Some escalation would have kept me playing that for hours :).

More fun than I expected once it got going. Seems like a lot of potential here for a twist on a peggle-style game.

Solid all across. This was actually surprisingly fun considering how simple a concept. Wished there was increasing difficulty as the game went on, but in 10 hours, this is pretty impressive!

Finished! Hehe. It's an interesting idea and cool gameplay. The physics/mechanic reminds me of a game that I had on my childhood. And you did a nice work considering how much time you had to make it :)

Who doesn't love Plinko. Very original mechanic to apply to the theme. Nice work!

I liked it, it reminded me of some TV games i enjoyed watching when i was a kid :P
loved the minimalist sound and the music too :)

It is sad you didn't put the "music" section, i thought it was nice! :)

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.
