Hi, nice game and congratulations ! We're realizing a video with several games of the Ludum Dare #36. We made the same thing at the previous jam.

Can you add your game on indiexpo.net ? (it's free)
So we can include also your game in the video ;)
p.s. write #LDJAM in the game's description.

Wow! It is so funny game :) Good idea :) The graphic is good, I like frogs physics, animations are pretty good. Simple and enjoyable :)

Hahaha! This game is pretty funny. I found a few glitches, like being able to still keep going after dying and adding frogs on the screen that don't go away by just clicking on the screen. Great concept and good job on the solid entry!

Very funny game. Got a good laugh from it. Maybe make aiming a little easier.

This was a fun game. The frogs were cute. Took me a bit to figure out what I was doing, but after that it was fine. I like the concept.

For constructive criticism: I'd like to see more satisfying death animation. I'd also like to see when I'm being hit more clearly. The difficulty scale was weird. I could never get past the fourth level. Sometimes I'd finish the 2nd level with 10 coins and sometimes with 8. If I finished with 8 I knew I wasn't beating the third level. Although it may have been different using an actual mouse vs a track pad.

Overall great work!

I love the concept... and the frog's face :D Maybe something that could help to aim would be great, I'm not sure at all since dragging feels as if you are actualli throwing frogs with your hands, but it is a suggestion. Cool little game, nice job !

First impressions:
This little game is really funny. GG!
The art is so cute :)
I think that if you have a added some sound would have become addictive.
As an improvement: maybe allowing camera movement or something to make it more dynamic.

Cheers,

This is so fun!
I'm really impressed with how intuitive you managed to make the throwing physics, it feels really responsive and lets you aim well.

I agree that it's a big miss to not include any sounds in it.
The bonuses were nice, the frogs are cute, I think it looks good and probably would even work well on mobile.

good job ^^

That's really fun concept. Shaking from to make bomb from it is really impresive. Controls are intuitive and well done. I can say no more because it's funny and nice game. Maybe adding some sound/music would be nice.

Funny simple game! It took me a while to figure out the controls but, after that it was a fairly fun game other than I did find it hard to get enough power to hit the guys way in the back. This seams to be a mobile type game because of the controls.

The graphics are ok but I think there could be different types of enemy's and more stuff in the background.

Its a fun little funny game though. I like the explosive frogs!!!

Nice little game! x) The frogs are just adorable ^^ It felt like a few times the controls refused to work properly, but otherwise it was great x) It was fun! Some audio would be nice =)

I've made a short let's play if you want to check it out: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=AvFFSM7F3Eg x)

What a weird game, why frogs! Easy to play and efficient. Sometimes it's not easy to launch precisely, but I love bomb frog!

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 (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.
