Very nice entry! :D

The catch and throw-back mechanic was quite innovative. Was the ability to hold on to a can for slow motion intentional? Even if not it made it quite strategic to try and catch and hold until one of the aerial bison was about to strike, then throw it.

Slow motion is intended as it was difficult to aim throws in realtime :)

Cool - it worked  great for that. It might be a tad too powerful for running with indefinitely - got to around 20 000 score once I figured I could just hold it nearly indefinitely! ':D

Perhaps it should slip from your grip after a few seconds or have some other drawback...

Really nice game! Great graphics and the music score kept me on point.

Using trash cans to keep a horde of bison from running over you. I can dig it.

I loved your take on the theme. The music and the graphics were great.

The game play was fun, but I didn't really feel like anything I did made me any closer or further away from being trampled. Maybe I didn't understand how the game is supposed to work though.

I've been trying to leave constructive criticism for the games I've been rating but I've got nothing for this.  I love this game.

I liked both the gameplay and the graphics.

It would be nice to see a few more funny objects to throw at the bisons :)

The music, graphics and feeling is amazing ! Good job !

I don't really understand the losing condition though, something bisons rushes on me and sometimes they stay idle.
Also you can lose even if you correctly grab everything, did I miss something ?
