Roll Of Totems

by mrbadg3r - Competition Entry



Roll Of Totems.

The WHEEL, for a lot of people, the most important discovery from the ancient age. Nobody seems to remember the failed prototypes that led to wheel.

This game honours one of the most great pioners from that time. His name BRUTUS BRUBUTUS

Absolutely fabulous graphics and music. The controls were quite hard to use imo but overall a stable, well-executed game.

Good graphics, but the game is too hard to control.
I love the SFX.

@peterthehe @tomer_cool You're right, Controls isn't good for a complete game.

My excuse is the controls are hard because:

- Game is very short and I ran out of time to do nice level design.
-I wanted to create a sense of a big ball down cliff out of control.

Thanks for feedback, next time I hope to get a bit of time to do better level design that will allow me easy control.

This excuse seems fair.

In my opinion the controls aren't so bad. I managed to get through the levels no problem really. The only little downside would be preformance, but with the time you had is perfect.

Nice game, quite fun!
The controls shouldn't be easy, the problem is that they are weird xD
But, the idea and the are great!

Wheel done and fantastic music. Leonardo Da Vinci would approve it.

If you consider this game was made by one-man-army, it has the best graphics of LD36. I good its challenging feeling, and I love the "horn" and "oh yeah" SFX ;)

Oh my god the sound effects are the best xD
It's a good game, reminds me of the mobile game "impossible road" with a twist of the balance mini games of Wii Fit.
Good entry overall :D

Loved the controls, mousing to each side of the screen felt like balancing.. loved the use of humor too

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. Many solo participants 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.
