Wolves and Sheeps

by distemp7 - Jam Entry

This game is about wolf shapeshifters. They want to eat your sheeps!

Try to find them during the night and kill them during the day!

No sounds, sorry (less then 1 day development).

P.S. First LD. Hope I did it well. =)

I think it is a fantastic idea but the game need music i think. But it's still funny

It doesn't work for me. It just says I have NaN and I need to save them from NaN wolves. The night passes and it says I won

Update: Fixed bug with NaN wolves (was because of bad rounding).

I liked the game however, it can be really improved with addind some minor new mechanics and sound effects. Would be a great mobile game to pass time =)

Maybe too easy. Would have been nice to have sound. Graphics were minimalist but very nice.

Update: Tweaked balance (math formula) to make it harder during last stages.

If somebody is interested - it looks like this.

init_sheeps = floor(random()*totalScore/100) + 3;
init_wolves = max(floor(random()*pow(init_sheeps, 0.8)), ceil(init_sheeps/5));
sheeps_needed = max(min(ceil(random()*(ceil(min (init_sheeps/init_wolves)) - init_sheeps/totalScore*100)), floor(init_sheeps-init_wolves)), ceil(init_sheeps/5));

Solid entry. I wish there was music, that was I would have gotten into the mood better. Love the minimal graphics.

Nice idea for a game, but it needs some music!

Very cool game.
I took me some time to figure out that I could kill wolves by clicking on them during day (but that was because I did not read the instructions properly). The idea is great. I'd love to play that on my mobile.
My one critique is that the game has no sound.

I like how you used the shapeshifting concept on this game!

Hi, nice game ! We're realizing a video with several games of the Ludum Dare #35.
Can you add your game on ? (it's free)
So we can include also your game in the video ;)
p.s. write #LDJAM in the game's description

Amusing! I think this concept would have been better done in a top down view, though.

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.
