Dwarf stole my Gold!

by Wakefield - Jam Entry

Some horrible dwarfs want to stole your gold!

You´re the dragon and you`re defending your gold. Shoot with mouse left click and throw fire balls with Z.
If they stole all the gold from one of the treasures, you loose. See how many dwarfs can you kill before they stole it!


This is my first attempt programming a game and my second week coding. I´m a 3D Artist but my love for 2D games sometimes is bigger.

Thanks to the artists:

Kind of slow and boring. Nice graphics, bounce effects. I wish I could do more. Pretty low-key action. Maybe should be faster, more dwarves at first. But great job for first attempt making a game. Nice to see an ImpactJS game. My game also uses Impact.

Nice graphics, feels pretty solid if a little bare.

Great game. But fire goes not from dragon mouth. Maybe some perks - smash enemies, fireball and stunning howl.

Not bard (!) at all for a first game, and your second week of programming. It need a bit tweaking in the gameplay (limiting shots?). Power ups would be a great addition (killing dwarves brings you gold, you buy power ups from it...)

Liked the tiny details. We made a dragon defense game too!

Graphics are pretty nice! Gameplay is pretty simple at the moment though, and could do with some more depth. Like someone else mentioned, limited shots would be something easy to incorporate but (I think) would improve the game immensely.

Great turret shooter game, fits the theme really well. Love the bouncing mechanics of the fireballs.

Fun little game. Good work!

Constructive feedback (if you had more time):
- more variety
- more difficult
- make it more obvious that they were taking money
- there was no sound/music for me

Very nice project guys, i really love it, please check our game too and if you liked it give us a vote. Look for Road to hell and enjoy.

- graphics look good, dragon is cool, blood effects are a nice touch
- congrats on your first programming attempt, programming seems solid, it's mostly the design that needs work.
- needs more difficulty and difficulty needs to ramp up faster
- what's the downside to constantly firing as fast as possible?
- if a dwarf steals my gold and i kill him then why do I still lose gold?
- why don't any enemies try to attack me at all?
- i let it just sit without attacking to see what would happen and it took about a minute before I lost, that is a long time of doing nothing
- the fireball attack on z seems kind of pointelsss
- game froze up a few times when I click away and back in chrome

Pretty fun and solid game. I feel like there isn't much to it, but what's there is really good. It's surprisingly fun getting the fireballs to bounce off the surfaces and into dwarves. As a fan of all things dwarvish and dwarf-themed, I really liked the aesthetic of this game. Would've loved to hear some sounds/music to go along with it. I feel like a bit of polish and fleshing out the game would make this game feel more complete. Really nice entry!

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 ( 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.
