Steering after you land on the monkeys was confusing

Great art and sound! The feel of floating was nice

My mama called the doctor, and the doctor said this game is fun!

...Ok, sorry, I probably should take a nap.

Great graphics/aesthetics. A really fun kids' game.

Really great! I've never played a jumping on the bed game. I also happen to love sock monkeys. I do wonder who bought her all those sock monkeys? Those things are expensive!... unless you make them. Enjoyed gameplay and the art very much. After hitting a monkey it would bounce you somewhere random, which was annoying until I figured out you could change your landing a bit. Fun game!

Cute art and sound, nice job! It was pretty fun getting some combos going after a few waves.

I really liked your game. Fun and simple gameplay. The music fits the ambient and the art is beautiful. Congratulations :)

I enjoy to see some silly games on Ludum Dare, and this is one hell of a weird game.

It needs a lose condition though. Also, a scoring system with a combo counter would be awesome.

Like the idea. But, the game moves too slow. The graphics are a really good, and the music sets the mood. Congrats. And I hope you get a rating in the final 15 minutes!

Cute art style and fitting music! I had to read the description to figure out what to do. And it was difficult to see where you would land, maybe the shadow could have been more distinct.

Very well made and cute game! Bopping those sock monkeys feels pretty good, and choosing which direction to launch is a neat mechanic. The game feels a bit too easy though, maybe respawning the bears every turn is too generous?

I played for about 5 minutes and stopped at wave 8. I thought it was very cute, and the graphics and audio were very well-done. As a whole, the game feels extremely polished, from the animations to the sound effects, as well as the arrows appearing above monkeys that are holding toys.

This was definitely a fun experience for a few minutes, but I do wish there was a little more gameplay than just jumping around and trying to fling the monkeys off the bed, as that gets repetitive fairly quickly.

Overall, very nice work! This is quite possibly the most "polished" game of all of the ones I've played so far.
