Ha, I liked how you "make" friends! Hard to find them on the map though, but really cute otherwise!

Interesting concept about "making friends". If they don't like ya, just eat'em! Very monster-ish. :P

Sometimes you have to wander a bit to find friends, but the game played quite nicely.

Click to play again isn't working for me, though.

Best is 15 friends here. :P

Fun little entry!

I like how the enemies "turn" into friends. Controls feel good and it's cool to see varied enemies.

A few more mechanics and this would be a solid web game!

The game froze up a couple times, but I finally made it to the end with 17 friends. Cute, short, and sweet. I just wish there was more gameplay.

Thansk everyone for your good comments ! I'm so pleased !

@zatyka : Nooo don't tell me it froze. A very little few people have this problem. Me the first. I tried hard to solved it but didnt found any solution :( (and that's why the "Replay" button doesnt work too :'( )
Nevertheless, i'm glad you still got fun !

This one is a funny interpretation of the theme. Good idea with good graphics. However the one hit kill system makes it too easy to die. Overall: Well made in C2. Congratulations :)

Cute game! Kind of open Pacman, where you eat enemies to make them your allies :) Fun to play, although is hard to avoid shots from enemies later on. Music is very well done indeed, although not exactly fitting with the cute main character. Good job!

The graphics are cute, and the gameply is fun, but too short. Just when i was starting to have a bit of fun eating... ermm... making frends, the game ended. :(
Cute pac-man clone but the gameplay get really old really fast. If u had some other game mechanic besides eating everything to give the game some depth and also longer play sessions it could be something fun.
Also when u click to play again the map is empty, has no obstacles and all the "friends" are spawned at the top right corner. I imagine this is a bug.

Not for me too.

Good concept! My best was 27. I found a spawn point in the lower left and just waited for them to come to me. It seems like you have to get lucky to avoid being shot. The movement controls were a little mushy, maybe variable speed based on distance of cursor from player would be 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.
