    Park to Park - Frozen Fractal - 48 Hour Compo Entry

    Surround areas with tape to pave them over, but don't let the goats and hippies get near the tape! For more points, pave over large areas at once, and try to trap the pests.

    A browser game written in CoffeeScript using HTML5 canvas, audio and local storage. A recent browser is required. The game works best in Chrome, but also works well in Firefox, Safari and even Internet Explorer. Opera users may experience problems, sorry!

    Very rarely, a goat or hippie will walk off the screen to get a bite to eat. This is totally a feature. All this running around in a park makes them hungry, you know.

    Nice implementation of Qix. A classic! Great use of the theme. Nice graphics. That goat seemed to be everywhere!

    Yes this is Qix but with goats, and I like both so this was fun.

    From the games I've played so far, this is definitely my favorite and I've replayed it several times since first seeing it on IRC. Your take on the theme is original and the music and graphics fits perfectly.

    Great work! :)

    I agree with the other comments. Very nice adaption of Qix to the theme. I really dig the clean graphic style. What I personally like most though, is the name :) Well done! Oh, and thanks for your nice comment on my game. Glad you liked it. I will try the control scheme option you suggested.

    Ah, nice little gem here, very relaxing. Let's do some analysis.

    Bad:
    -The levels don't have much variation in the end other than more enemies. (Which makes me think you should make a post-compo where the player can define how many enemies to spawn so that they can play against however many their computer can stand.)
    -The fonts could use some work.

    Good:
    +Like I said, nice and relaxing experience.
    +Graphics are nice and clean.
    +Funny story and title.

    Its cool, classic gameplay, but it lagged for me...

    Great name/concept and adaptation. The music is a bit glitchy when you move though.

    Cool Qix/Jezzball style game. I had a bug where a hippie ran off the side of the level on level 3. Other than that, well done!

    Cute game! I personally struggled to get past level 2, but overall I thought it was a fantastic game.

    Awesome game! I remember playing Jezzball a lot as a kid, and this harkens back to that while still applying a lot of originality and pizzazz.

    Great use of the theme and a wonderful presentation! :D

    IMPORTANT NOTE: If you want to place in the final results, you NEED votes. The easiest way to get votes is by rating other games. Judging lasts for 3 weeks following the end of Ludum Dare. For best effect, rate 20 games as soon as possible. Rating more games is encouraged.

    MORE TIPS AND DETAILS AT THE BOTTOM OF THIS PAGE

    REMEMBER: The “Theme” category is only for the main theme (You are the Villain). Don’t penalize for not using Goats.

    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.

    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.

    We’ve identified the problem, and should have the page caching bugs fixed for next Ludum Dare.

    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 about 20 games to improve your visibility.

    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.

    MY GAME CRASHES, IS UNBEATABLE, OR I MADE A TYPO: We allow you to fix crash or win condition bugs after the deadline (in a sense, like “porting” to support more players). We also allow “typo” bugs. I.e. A true that should have been a false, a word that should have been a different word, very tiny changes that you would have caught if you had more sleep. We leave this open to interpretation, but generally speaking your game should be identical to the game you submitted. No new features, just things you messed up last minute. Typos.
