I liked the idea of using the height of the items to represent their hardness, and the use of green and red. Although it runs very slow on my PC, this one was good for the compo!

Thanks for sharing

Really good game!
Graphics are nicely done and polished. Music is great. Camera effects are neat.
The concept is really simple but the final level was more interesting than I thought, with some buildings actually blocking my way.
I'd like to see more of that!
And for a single developer, great job!

Very nice, though resource-intensive and too short :) I was just starting to have fun! I was just about to complain that there is no visual indication of your ball's strength, and then I saw that buildings were getting smaller! Well done :)

The crashing effect is good!
I didn't notice that the blob is growing until the house changed color, maybe do some effect will be better.
If the blob hit the red one will bounce off, maybe gameplay will be better.

What if Katamari Damacy was made by Michael Bay. Explosions were nice, and the explosions were fun and visceral. The visuals look nice too. Could use a source of challenge; something that made you lose progress, or a puzzle to solve.

Thanks for putting this together!

Very cool! I think a few more different building designs would make it better, but it still was fun.

It was kind of like a destructive katamari. The graphics looked really clean and the UI was well polished.

A simple game, but destroying those buildings is super satisfying

The sound effects, particle effects, and screen-shake all make knocking down buildings very satisfying.

Sort of a destructing version of katamari. I like it!

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.
