Cute idea, great game! I included it in my Movie Game Jam compilation video series, if you’d like to check it out! :)

This was a lot of fun, and a very clever entry!
The graphics are good, as is the game play.
Perhaps it would've been nice to have a "John Williams-like" soundtrack playing as well, but even still, you managed to achieve a lot in the time allowed.
Well done and good luck! :D

This was a great idea :D
The controls feel great, the concept is solid, and once you get a hang for the mechanics, it's incredibly satisfying to play. Great work!

Also, R.I.P. Solid Snake.

Included your game in my vid, it was quite fun! The bowling pins were a funny surprise lol

Keep making games, please! Enjoy the Lumps Play. Cheeeeeeers. 🍻

So creative to turn the boulder into a character! The way it controls really makes it feel weighty, and I liked the degree of finesse required to hit things. I ended up hitting John by accident though, I think he may actually have run into the back of me!

Silly fun and I like when you get a good tilt roll around hard corners -feels more fun trying to regain control. I like that you threw a little bowling in there too xD  - Awesome work!

Really great game. I can't recall too much of the scene but in terms of flipping the role from being the raider to being the boulder was really interesting! Great job!

What a great twist on such a classic scene. Great job!

I managed to flatten that jerk Intruder John :D Good game, and great interpretation of the scene allowing us to play as the boulder. It could use a little music as it just felt a little too quiet at certain points but overall good fun to play.

Great game. nice loading screens and artwork overall this is really well put together. I like that there is story and the score mechanic adds to replay value.
I did not have any music but other than that A+

I found it much easier to steer with the arrow keys than the mouse, even though there's no mention that's possible at the beginning. I was able to catch Jones... I mean John... after playing with arrow keys. 

I love the way you have to "think" like a ball, if such a thing is possible, to get the speed you need to catch him. Overall I really enjoyed this game! Great job!

The steering is a bit difficult at times (i had to move the mouse all over the desk to steer around that loop circle), but still manageable. I had hoped I could catch Jones but I always ended up outside the temple, so I'm guessing that's the end? Or can you actually catch him if you're fast enough with all the speed powerups?

Overall it was very cute and enjoyable, good job! :)
