*Important message*

There is a bug in the 2nd lvl..

If you go to the spot where the carrot was after the wolf catches the rabbit the game will likely freeze..

It is dangerous to go alone.. take this.. orange carrot
and you won't be alone.. is that safe? no

You are lil red riding hood:
Take the orange carrot and the fat rabid bunny will chase you and will serve as a meal for the wolf instead of you.

I added a "Jam" version with keyboard control

White spot == bunny
red spot == you -> lil red riding hood
blue spot == big wolf
orange spot == carrot

The theme says it is dangerous to go alone.
The solution for is to take this..
You take the carrot to bait the rabbit into going with you.
You use this to keep yourself protected from danger.

Pretty cool, although it's a bit difficult on my track pad. There's a suspicious percentage of rabid rabbits though.

Some hmm.. game strategy advice:
Guide the mouse pointer(cursur) instead of the character
The obvious solution is not always the best one.

@Milo :
I will make a keyboard controlled version soon.. for Jam
Thanks for the comments

Fits into the theme well - I really like the idea of using an enemy as bait - it's like it's dangerous to go alone, but take this thing that could potentially kill you if you aren't careful. I would like to see a better execution of the idea in the future. Graphics are functional. Controlling with the mouse is kind of weird, and when the wolf ate the rabbit on level two, the game froze for me though.

Nice work on getting it done in 7 hours, though.

@mintman : Thanks, Did you try again? (Is it a reoccuring bug)? It might be flash player version.. (10.1)
Thanks for the comments.. I'll add keyboard control for the Jam tonight.
I will definitely like to recreate it with better balance.

Woah, I had lots of fun and lost some nerves at 2 maps :D
Great game!

Great game, very simple, but somehow extremely fun :P

I was eaten by a wolf.

Nice idea, but seems a tad buggy. The game got stuck in the second stage when the wolf ate the bunny.

@Endurion: Is this a reoccuring bug? Does it happen every time the wolf eats the bunny? also. . what version of flash do you have?

A surprisingly fun game. Just when I'd thought I'd mastered the concept your level design threw me for a loop. Good stuff.

As far as community goes, you posted about the game, but didn't have a demo - acceptable seeing as you didn't enter until 10 hours left. Overall, good participation.

It freezes during the second stage for me. I have version 10,2,154,27.

Thanks! I was now able to recreate the bug :)
I have no idea what causes it though:) (and am not allowed to fix it for the compo) strangely refreshing somehow fixed the issue for me :/ I will check the code

elbowroom says ...

Yeah, after doing some thinking.. I figure you can take the carrot again after you take it for the first time..
And that is more likely to happen in the second stage..
And it causes the game to freeze..

Thanks for all the help.
Hope I do better next LD

Very fun mechanic despite the simplicity!

I didn't take the carrot and I won anyways :S

It is an interesting gameplay.

Good luck with the compo

It bothered me that as soon as my cursor left the green that the character would stop. Apart from that I think it fits the theme pretty good.
