I don’t think there was enough I could do to defend myself. The monster were cute.

Cool game here Draft! I felt that the mechanics were very innovative. Even though it took me a little to figure out why those little guys were a threat to me, I felt like this game was pretty easy to pick up and play. 4/5 :)

Thank you very much.

A nice game that is actually quite a big one and could take a while to beat, however the repeated clicking became boring fairly quickly and stopped me from playing past wave 4. However, an overall enjoyable experience! Well done! :)

Fun to play and it's a buzz when I nail a long-range shot, but I was never able to accrue enough money for anything more than cool-down improvements and never got past wave seven on world one or two, so unfortunately I didn't get to see the more expensive bonuses.

Haha great entry! The ending of the monster is super fun to watch when he is carried away all the way! That was a great way to show the emotion of being overwhelmed! Loved the game :)

I liked the idea that made me retry more and more cause i wanted to unlock all the upgrades.
But I found it very hard at some point! can't buy the double weapon, those little "monsters" were pushing me to hard against the spikes :P
Great idea!

Love the tower defense game type. Graphics were also really nice. Great job!

WebGl was throwing an error for me, so I played with the web version. It's a pretty cool game :) Impressive content for 48h (interface, shop, worlds...) The gameplay is working nicely, I only miss a nice feedback for when my bullets hit ground and enemies. I found the gameover mechanic very original, all the little dudes stacking together to push me, that was fun :D

Cool game. I wasn't able to get past difficlty level 9 on neither world. :( It was fun with nice music and art, great job!

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.
