This is best game I've played in a long while. Such a fun game to play and absolutely hilarious.

Amazing game.

Aug 24, 2015 @ 9:05pm

So good! You guys have this :D

The only thing I want for this is to exist on a touch device, playing with mouse is just meh.

When the two heads came out... Ah! So cool! Great variations!

Aug 24, 2015 @ 9:26pm

Awesomely creative and well executed! What a fantastic job.

My only nitpick is a lack of good feedback -- I thought I was doing horribly until I got to the end and had 84% accuracy.

Phenomenal game, very polished, fun gameplay.

This would be a dream come true if you make it work on touchscreen devices.

A great quick game to play with some catchy music and good looking art style.

Great attention to detail. Your game feels far more polished than most dress-up games.

Gamepopper says ...
Aug 24, 2015 @ 10:26pm

Clever concept, I loved the amount of variety in the game. Brilliant graphics too, with really creative monster designs.

GFM says ...

Aug 25, 2015 @ 3:01am

It was really confusing to me in the beginning, I had no idea the scissors makes the hair grow. I was looking for a wig or something

Other than that, the game is very cute! And great sound choice

JustinJ says ...

Perfect. Amazing idea and execution.

ENDESGA says ...

absolutely fantastic! each element is really fun, lots of cool interactions, and the overall charm is through the roof :)

mklee says ...
Aug 25, 2015 @ 5:23am

Oh my goodness this is amazing. The little details with the eye curls and the different hair on the two-headed monster really sells the game. Great job!

Polyganz says ...
Aug 25, 2015 @ 11:58am

This game is hilarious! I loved the graphics and it was fun to play!

Aug 25, 2015 @ 6:30pm

This game is absolutely fabulous! There were a few times when I wasn't entirely sure what was going on, but otherwise the originality and creativity is just great! :D

Aug 25, 2015 @ 7:55pm

That was amazing. Really good idea and great graphics.

Aug 26, 2015 @ 2:46am

Great game even though you weren't really "the" monster. Had a surprising amount of fun primping up some ugly dudes.

shelleyl says ...

Aug 27, 2015 @ 1:01am

I kept getting stuck after applying the mascara and lipstick on the second monster, dunno if I missed something or if it was a bug :< no one else seemed to have a problem with it!

Anyway, I watched Larry the Chupacabra's video and HOT DANG what an amazing entry! I saw your tweet earlier in the weekend and immediately knew this game was special. Awesome work! I'll check back later to see if I can play further :)

Lancelot Gao says ...

This game makes me smile, give me pleasure, thank you very much, btw I really really liked this art!

aeveis says ...
Aug 27, 2015 @ 3:39am

This was pretty fun! The only problems I had with it was the hit boxes for selecting things felt a bit too precise, and scissors was a bit confusing for creating hair. I really love how different monsters made things more complicated (like 4 eyes or two heads).

Mr. Jif says ...
Aug 27, 2015 @ 4:22am

So good! Pretty hilarious

LeafThief says ...
Aug 27, 2015 @ 7:23am

TijmenTio says ...
Aug 27, 2015 @ 3:43pm

588 points! This is really really good, in the 9 ludum dares I have participated in I have rarely seen something so original and well executed.
Best theme adaption if you ask me.

TheZiggy says ...
Aug 27, 2015 @ 6:13pm

Really fun! Would love to see a post-compo version, although this version seems really polished by itself. Maybe a mobile version would be fun?

Zampi says ...
Aug 27, 2015 @ 7:13pm


Aug 27, 2015 @ 8:01pm

Hilarious! Would be a great mobile game. Wish the time started over with each round - but I'm just knit-picking

MaesK says ...
Aug 31, 2015 @ 7:28pm

Awesome game, reeeeally funny. Nice touch in difficulty in monsters with multiple heads :D

If there´s only one thing to improve... The main screenshot might not be the best to draw attention. Let these monsters show they are *fabulous* in a nice image :D

Headmade says ...
Aug 31, 2015 @ 7:48pm

Everything about this games is just wonderful.

Patacorow says ...
Aug 31, 2015 @ 8:16pm

Zemmi says ...
Sep 2, 2015 @ 12:39am

I have to contribute to the barrage of "OMG it's so good" cuz' it's soooo good. Fucking trounced the competition.

Sep 2, 2015 @ 5:22pm

That was very satisfying. What a great entry. The art, the gameplay, the music. You guys did an awesome job!

-Loi LeMix.

Good job, it's a really fun game !

Slothmachine says ...
Sep 5, 2015 @ 2:21pm

Fantastic! Sounds, Music and Theme make it so Hilarious!. Great addition to the make up game genre. And the small mouse actions make the gameplay really come alive. Well done!

treeman says ...
Sep 5, 2015 @ 2:35pm

Amazing, hilarious, awesome. I had some trouble matching correctly. But hilariously fun.

Great game, brilliant idea and fantastically well executed! 5 stars!

Sep 5, 2015 @ 5:01pm

Really beautiful, fun game. I included it in part 17 of my Ludum Dare 33 Compilation video series, if you would like to take a look :)

chuckeles says ...
Sep 5, 2015 @ 7:35pm

This is the best game. Period.

CtrlAltTea says ...
Sep 5, 2015 @ 8:20pm

Loooved it! The art, the music, it's all perfect - fantastic job!

Drauthius says ...
Sep 5, 2015 @ 9:39pm

Haha, that was hilarious. It became a bit confusing when monsters started to show up with multiple eyes and mouths. :D

dancingmad says ...
Sep 5, 2015 @ 9:41pm

Ahahah great concept and very fun experience.

Druid says ...
Sep 6, 2015 @ 11:47am

OldPeculier says ...
Sep 9, 2015 @ 9:10pm

Maybe the best game from LD33. Pat yourselves on your green, disgusting, pimply backs.

Sedsibi says ...
Sep 10, 2015 @ 12:22am

Fantastic game, great visual style with lots of humor. I enjoyed it. The only thing I was really bothered by, and it really detracted from the experience, was some significant input lag. If that was corrected this would have gotten 5 stars across the board.

Dianouille says ...
Sep 10, 2015 @ 9:00am

So funny ! Really fine and polish, good job !

nassi says ...
Sep 10, 2015 @ 11:28am

Really polished and the mood is just spot on. Made me felt like a true beautician. The rounds lasted for a sufficient amount of time and there was a good bit of difficulty in there too. Good job!

Lythom says ...
Sep 10, 2015 @ 12:45pm

Almost perfect : Juicy, fun, surprising, consistent (theme, atmosphere, graphics, audio).
What imo could be improved :
- better feedback on the time left (it maked at least one round to understand that the hand is pointing the time and when it'll stop. Maybe a simple red gradient would indicate the end mor eclearly).
- better feedback on the missed elements (what was wrong).
Excellent work =)

Sep 10, 2015 @ 12:55pm

Haha, I had fun playing this. ^^ Nice graphics, and well polished. Well done!

Patacorow says ...
Sep 10, 2015 @ 1:18pm

Thanks everyone, we will take all your suggestions into consideration :)

@Sedsibi: I'm not sure what you're talking about - the game is not optimized for mobile devices, so you're gonna have a hard time clicking stuff without a stylus. If that was your problem, switch to playing on a computer. If it persists, try downloading the Windows version. If you've tried everything and it still doesn't work, I'd appreciate if you could send me more details about what's causing this (OS, browser, etc). Thanks!

Greeat game :D I wrote a review (on german) about this game:

egor-idiot says ...
Sep 10, 2015 @ 2:29pm

So cool game!

ohsqueezy says ...
Sep 10, 2015 @ 4:38pm

The monsters are so relatable, so the real monster must be our ideal of beauty. Isn't this what we all do?? Disguise ourselves to look like something we hope passes for human? Maybe it's just me. Anyway, this is a great game!

Sep 11, 2015 @ 5:56am

Awesome!!!!! Super hilarious. Pretty fun too. The graphics are spot on, and the variety is great.

Pierrec says ...
Sep 11, 2015 @ 6:59am

pirate_shell says ...
Sep 11, 2015 @ 6:58pm

The graphics were lovely, the idea was nice and the execusion was quite good. Perhaps a way to extend time depending on how good you are would have been nice, however.

deepnight says ...
Sep 11, 2015 @ 9:51pm

Woah, that's a really good entry!
The idea is great and the art is top notch, well done!
The controls can sometime become a little messy because of the mouse cursor that changes to various shape really frequently, but that's not a major problem.

Good job guys!

Sep 12, 2015 @ 12:42am

Very polished, nice one!

It's amazing, the greates entry i have seen on ld, rly. This graphicss is so sweet and enjoyable! Everything is perfect (you are already know it :))

Sep 12, 2015 @ 10:32pm

Amazing game!
I've been seing it in some favourite lists and I couldn't play untill now. The wait was worth it!
It would be nice that it reminds that you did the tutorial so each start there is a different challenge!

I included your game in an article of my favorites and added a trophy to your profile!

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.
