Challenging game! I included it in my A Game By It’s Cover 2018 compilation video series, if you’d like to take a look. :)
You've absolutely nailed the Famicom look and feel! Most people only remember the Nintendo classics and a few other epic debuts (Castlevania, Final Fantasy etc.), but short sports games like these were also pretty common. I have a bootleg Famicom with a "101 in 1" cartridge that I used to play a lot a few years ago and there are dozens of similarly structured games in there. If I booted that console up and found your game there, I honestly wouldn't be surprised. I haven't played all entries of this jam yet, but I'm pretty sure this one deserves a spot among the most authentic retro recreations. Really great job!
My only suggestion would be having little sprites of the curling players. One that throws the stone and two that skate along the ice and brush the area in front of the stone, as seen on the cover. That would be the cherry on the cake!
Hey thanks for the kind words! I feel like a lot of the things I make are for like eleven people, so it's nice when they find them.
I hear you about having people on screen. It was definitely the original plan, but I liked the simplicity of just the rocks. (The original plan also had a half-visual-novel story mode also.) I might do a graphical update in the future.
