This is a nice puzle game.
The city is beautifull from the point of view, and the levels are going harder.

Great puzzle game! I couldn't pass level 6 :(, anyways, good game, some things that could be done with it are:

- Animations
- Ability to re-access tutorial

Pretty nice.

The graphics could use some work (textures, animations), although the small details in the city are cool (like chimneys, some characters walking in the street).

I really like that each level is in the same area, and the camera just pans over.

However, the pan is really, really slow.. I think ~1 second would be enough.

Finally, it would be a cool twist if some of the levels didn't use the rooftop setting. Maybe you push some dudes into a landfill instead, or a pool? Or out the window of some office, I dunno.

Unless you already did that in later levels.. Unfortunately I'm not clever enough to finish all of them =/

I don't usually play boulder dash games but I gave it a try. Some levels were truly exhausting(made it thorugh them all).

I like that instead of pick level, go to level we have here a city with buildings each one representing different levels.

Tile by tile animation is rather painful. I know it's required by games logic but character could have moved from one tile to another instead of jumping betwen them.

Cool! Lots of good puzzles here to solve and splatting the little guys on the ground never gets old :D

Cool interpretation of Sokoban on the Ludum Dare 33 theme. First time I play a Sokoban type game with such a grin, from the evil joy of seeing these idiots falling and hear the Splat sound they make when hitting the ground. My brain is gone for now so i'm stuck at level 10, but I'll come back later for sure to try to complete the game. Good job !

Really nice puzzles and setting, cool idea in general. I liked the way the world and levels fit together as well!

That is one cool game. I really love the art style and the camera angle really works for the game. In some puzzle I did wish for a chance to rotate the camera around the skyscraper but that might be more of a personal thing. While having the splat sound there is nice it did make the rest of the game feel empty and erie with it's silence.

Other than that it is one of the best LD33 games I have played so far. Keep it up!

This game was great! Simple, fun, good looking, and hard. level 6 was harder than the ones after it, no lerp between positions, and slow camera pan.

great puzzles they get harder which is a good thing. I would like to see some tweening between tile to tile movement. Really nice game

Took a bit to introduce the 'puzzle' aspect of it, so that was a weird. I would have preferred faster gravity (I may just be impatient). Also would have preferred smooth walking with snapping to the grid. But other than that, awesome game, quit fun actually and amusing!

Aug 28, 2015 @ 4:01am

a really good one!

probably the most polished LD game i've seen so far!

the little details were great. like seeing people walk on the streets and such

congrats!

Love the city view.

It's like homicidal Sokoban!

Fun and funny Sokoban variant. I like the little touches, like people walking past in the background and chimney smoke. I also like how the other monsters just stand there waiting to be pushed, like that's their job.

Awesome job, puzzles get hard quick, and the splat sound is gratifying :D

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.
