How does your game fit the theme?
The sheeps spawn faster and faster to the point where you can't control their number. Also you regularly loose the controls for a quick nap :D

With a bit more polish this could be a very solid mobile game! Good job!

I reached level 13 with 153 points hahaha
Very cool your game. Of course, because it is a jam game, it still lacks a lot of polish, but I believe it has the potential to become a very solid product. For mobile, maybe?
Anyway, congratulations on the project, it was very pleasant to play, with a strong identity!

Developer

Thanks very much ! Yeah i'm planning on working on it a bit further but i'm lacking the art and audio skills, so I'd to find a way around that :D

It's kinda amazing how quickly just tweaking the spawn rate ramps up the difficulty. At one point I had to start herding batches of sheep into corners and trimming them all at once just to keep the population under control! Simple and fun, I'd wager this just needs some minor animations and effects to complete the experience!

Submitted(+1)

Really fun game and surprisingly addicting! I think that the animals should definitely have some animation to make the game look less static and I'm also quite confused why you used a crocodile instead of a wolf which would have been much more in theme. I'm also not sure why you called the game Trim the Sheeps considering that you just eat them, not trim them lol. However, overall the game was very enjoyable to play, I managed to get to level 12, and I hope you keep working on it!

Developer(+1)

haha thanks. Yeah I had trim down the sheeps un mind 😁 but il not an English speaker and I thought of that afterwards

Submitted(+1)

very fun game! could be expanded to add some more animation and variety to the sheep's behaviour/AI. definitely nailed the simple to play, hard to master element, though!

Submitted(+1)

I like the idea! It starts off simple but you quickly realize  you'll have to strategically herd the sheep to keep them under control. It would be nice if the herding worked a bit better (maybe try giving the sheep a limited turn speed, or look into flocking behavior) but it was definitely fun! I wasn't sure if there was an end goal I was trying to reach, or if it's just play-until-you-lose.

Submitted(+1)

I liked it! the increasing speed definitely made things intense. One criticism I had was that the game-play is pretty basic if there was more variety in the sheep maybe that would keep me interested for a round 2!

Developer

thanks so much for your comments! I will definitely try to improve upon this 🙂

Submitted(+1)

I think the audio was mixed nicely, and the gameplay was pretty addictive! I think more varied sheep behavior would help the game feel more, "out-of-control," instead of just relying on a hard-set game-over after so many levels. By the time I got to level 10, the sheep were moving too fast away from me that by the time I caught 1, 2 more spawned, which felt less like something I could control with skill and more like just the game telling me it was time to be done. The sleeping mechanic was an interesting idea to implement, I think you could do something really cool with that if there was some additional consequence that wasn't just, "more sheep spawn." Overall, good work!

Developer

thank you very much! I'm actually reflecting on expanding the gameplay to several types of character and all, but I also need to find the art to support that 🙂

Submitted(+1)

Simple fun, I liked how the periodic timeout forced me to be a little more strategic with my sheep herding. This a good base to explore some additional mechanics layered on top. Great work!

Developer

thank so much! Yeah I think it's a good simple base to be expanded upon!

A fun game! I made it to Level 11 with a score of 142. At the beginning of the jam i came up with another idea but also with sheeps ^^ The game is fun to play and the difficulty does not spike up too quickly.

I would love some more feedback when you eat a sheep like a little effect to give the player a more rewarding experience (which was already mentioned). You did this already with the spawn of a sheep which is nice. It helps noticing that there is a new sheep especially if you reach a higher level.

What I noticed is that you can get stuck in the options menu when you press Enter on a volume slider. Or at least I wasn't able to recover any focus on the button at the bottom of the menu.

Overall a nice experience.

An addidition to tinu.io feedback.
The choice with sound and art was great. Everything is hilirious.
Overall a very fun game that is a bit frustrating, when the sheeps are avoiding me more and more. Some movement boost would be great, that would make the experience much better and you won't feel that helpless not being able to eat all the sheep.

Developer(+1)

Thank you very much for the feedback ! I am actually looking into adding more character types. But the theme was out of control so in the end... :) Joke asside I agree with you I think that there is level after which the sheeps spawn too fast and the game just goes unplayable. I'll look into improving that also !

Developer(+1)

Thanks so much for your feedback ! As for the bug, I'll look into it. I have to say I spent way more time than should have been circumventing Unity's navigation system to make sure I that I could navigate using both keyboard AND gamepad and that buttons where coloring properly (which I had to hack :sigh:) that I did even think to try enter on the sliders... Thanks very much for reporting it !

Submitted(+1)

Great game! Simple idea done well. I like the mechanics. More sheep and level variation would be nice. Also, like the fun, joyful music. Keep it up!

Developer

Thank you for playing my game ! I agree with you completely ! I actually plan on doing just that, and adding crocs with different traits also :)

Submitted(+1)

I liked the game a lot! I wish there was a little more feedback when you ate a ship... some game "feel"!...

Overall a neat game!

Good Luck!!!

Developer

Thank you for your feedback ! Yeah I agree with you but my brain has been trained for much to think about sheeps exploding in a river a blood that I could not think of something fitting the graphical style that wasn't exactily that :)

Submitted(+1)

hahaha! Ok fair enough!

Submitted(+1)

I loved your game, the sheep are cute!

Developer

Thank you very for playing my game back :)

Submitted

This game very cool! i really enjoyed it, please keep working on it even after the jam, with a bit more polishing it will became amazing! please check out my game too :D

Developer(+1)

Hey thank you for playing my game! I'll check out yours after work :) I'll try to continue working on it, I have a few ideas to evolve the game. I don't if i can find the art that match my ideas though...

Submitted (1 edit) (+1)

I wish there was something to break up the gameplay. A dash, maybe? Keep on jammin'.

Developer(+1)

yeah I agree that it needs something. Not sure abt dashing though. I fear it would become a button making game in the end.... Thanks for playing anyway 😊

Submitted(+1)

This game makes me go YES!

Developer

thanks man!

Very cute game! I can see the sheep start avoiding me more as I play longer. Great job!

Developer(+1)

Thank you for playing the game :)

Nice entry, the game's theme and sound effects made a great combo, adding more variety like other animals, traps, crazy death lasers(?), etc, would exponentially benefit the experience!

Developer

Hey thanks for playing my game :) Yeah I agree about the animals, but I couldn't find the right combo of sheep and fun movement in the sprites i had :) Pickeable bonuses would have been nice also.

Submitted (1 edit)

The game would feel more authentic if the sprits would be animated.

But overall it was fun to play! Keep up the good work

Developer

Thanks so much for the comment and having played the game :) Really , you don't want me animating sprite AT ALL!! Even though I agree with you :) I did what I could using static images and a bit of programming :)

Submitted(+1)

Haha I know what you mean, anyway it is fun to play.
