This is one of the few games I've played so far where I actually feel like a terrifying villain! The screams got a little earpinging after a bit, but the music was nice.
Also, wonderful addition of goats!

Loved the graphics, gameplay is a little repetitive but it was fun to play for a few rounds. Wish I had more control over what I shot like buildings, people and aiming specifically at the object I want to shoot. I can hang out in a corner, click really fast at the other side of the screen and hold me own for some time. Great job!

This was really fun. I wish the enemy shots were a bit more varied though.

This was a very fun game! I really enjoyed it. It was one of the best games I played for LD 25.

Awesome! Wow the music and graphics were great! Impressive amount of content too!

Nicely done; one of the few games that really makes you feel like just being a evil person ("You are a Bastard" was another really good one). Very solid and well polished game. I had come difficulty controlling (playing on a touchpad), and would really love dual analog control, but not a big deal for a game made over the weekend.

Great fun! It's a very traditional villain setting, but the first one I played that gave me a simple direct way to destroy things :) I noticed a couple of tiny little graphical bugs, but otherwise it's very polished - great work!

Solid entry, good graphics and the bgm was the best one I've heard so far!
Online scores were a nice addition, too.

I found it pretty hard. Or at least, I died fast.

Nice polish.

This is SO fun! I too have to comment, it really makes you feel like an invader. The epicness of it!
Congrats! Top marks from me

Wow, this is great (I had a ton of fun)! I agree that the screams are loud, but the audio added a really nice touch to this game!

Game sounds fun, and judging by the comments, probably is. I can't play windows games. Good luck though!

I'll be keeping an eye out for a Mac build of this game.

Great! Very cute music and graphics, and the gameplay was solid. My favorite game so far. :)

Very nice! The graphics were good, the music was good enough, and the gameplay was nice and crisp. You even managed to get an online multiplayer score system going! The destruction almost reminds me of my entry as well, I loved it, muahaha. Good job.

Very solid entry, and scoring too. Lots of screaming. (And are those BABIES crawling on the road?? You villain!)

Nicely made, very complete! The game is also challenging.

I really like the sound effects and music of this game. The pixel work is very nice too. The player's spaceship felt a bit out of place when compared to the other sprites, for some reason.

One big complaint about this game is that we need to keep pressing mouse button to shoot. This hurts the hand and eventually gets people tired of playing, so maybe you should consider letting the player hold down the button to fire continuously.

It would be really cool if the cars could collide between themselves.

I love the interactions with the environment, and controls seemed responsive. The only issue was that after firing a few shots rapidly I wouldn't be able to fire for a while (maybe 10 seconds). If that was done on purpose perhaps there should be a more obvious indicator of overheating?

Great! My favorite are the graphics, but the music and sound are quite good too. I only wish I didn't have to keep clicking the mouse in order to keep shooting. It's bad for the RSI!

"Villainism" right to the point :)

I'm not much into shooters, but I have to confess this game is really fun, and very impressive overall. Everything is just right! Graphics, Audio, Fun...
It might not be very innovative, but who cares when it's perfectly done ?!

I really liked the retro graphics and arcade gameplay. My only complaint is after getting killed (really easy for me), from the time the name input box appears to playing again was unbearably slow on my system. After entering the name the game appeared to lock, then went back to start screen, then loading, then game start. Maybe it was system specific, but that prevented me from playing more than I would have liked to have played.

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.


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 ( 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.
