Review: Bacon Game Jam 07

March 29, 2014 | By

The Bacon Game Jam 07 was a 7 day game jam where developers had to make games with the theme word ‘Hungry’ in mind.


At the end of those 7 days, there were nearly 70 games entered! I was able to go through all of the games and play and record as many of these games as I could. Below, I would like to share 7 of my favorite games from this jam!

Adrian and the Fridge

Adrian and the Fridge is a sad, depressing game about a girl named Adrian. She is currently struggling with depression and decides that maybe some food will help her. Instead, the fridge comes to life and begins ordering her to go into a strange, platform world where she must collect food to bring back to the fridge. The graphics to this game have a hand drawn look from time to time, which I like. This fridge, who later requests to be called Crusty, is pure evil. He not only puts Adrian down, but is rude and mean to her, not to mention demanding. What will happen if Adrian listens to the fridge and continues getting him food? Play and find out.

This platform game is about a little beaver who would like to expand his home. In order to do that, the beaver must go through this world, collecting (and eating) wood. This wood must be brought back to his home so that he can build a new addition to his home. These some additions are small, like an extra room or en suite. Others like a home gym, spa, or sauna take more wood. At first, I found it super easy to go and get wood and come back to the home. However, as I continued to play, I found that sometimes pieces of wood need to stay in place so that the beaver is able to jump back to his home. The graphics in this game are very well done, the gameplay is fun, and it is simply a great game!

In this game, the player plays as a man who is lost in the woods. This man is starving to death and looking around for food. The longer he goes without food, the more the starvation bar goes down, but luckily someone has scattered loads of food around the ground! The player is able to pick up and eat the food on the ground to prevent starving. As the man continues walking around, he finds a staff that can then be used to kill bugs! It also does get darker outside in the woods, so soon the player is only able to see a circle of light around the man. This game is really fun, the forest is fun to explore as well.

This game is almost like Super Crate Box. There are a few levels of platforms, enemies drop from a hole in the top one, then they slowly make their way down the bottom. Some skull enemies just float around trying to attack the player. The player however can pick up different power-ups to gain different weapons, most of which seem to be throwing weapons, in order to kill the pinatas. The graphics and how well made this game is really sold me on it. Not only are the graphics perfect for the game, but they are so very colorful! The game looks fun to play and is very well made.

In this game, the player plays as a queen who has been turned into a vampire by making a pact with the gods. Now, death is upset that he has been cheated, so he is following her trying to kill her. She is still trying to fill her endless hunger. The player gets to jump from platform, drinking the blood of people along the way, while Death follows close behind. Each time the queen drinks the blood of a human, Death backs off a bit, but it still seems like he will catch up. Sometimes demons come towards the queen, knocking her back towards Death. This game is really fun to play, but the best part of it is the voice. Death speaks to the player throughout the game, in a sort of spooky, multiple voice thing. I do not really know how to describe it, but it is really fantastic.

BBB: Bloody Bunny Battle

In this game, the player plays as a bunny! A cute, happy, fluffy, blood-thirsty bunny. Yes, a blood-thirsty carnivorous bunny. This bunny has a long tongue, one that the player can use to stick to other bunnies, to bring them to his or her mouth. Then, the bunny CHOMPS the head of its prey off, in a bloody rain. This game is so unbelievably funny. The gameplay is pretty simple, just pushing the tongue against another bunny, then pulling the new bunny close to the player. If the player hits another bunny, then it loses a life. Three lives lost, and its game over. Occasionally, carrots pop up for this bunny to eat. Those give the player an extra life. I have never been able to get 100 points, however it is said that the bunny would evolve when this happens! The music to this game is also really nice and great to listen too.

Makin’ Bacon Pancakes!

This game features the characters from ‘Adventure Time!’, a popular cartoon on Cartoon Network. Jake, the dog, is wanting to make pancakes with bacon for Finn to eat! BMO is also helping with the adventure. The player is shown a conveyor belt with ingredients in it. There, he or she must pick one egg, one pancake mix, and one milk to put into the bowl. Once the batter is mixed, the player needs to cook some bacon from the belt in the frying pan. After the bacon is cooked (which is shown by BMO) the player can add the pancake mix to make the perfect pancake. Then, when that is fully cooked, the player is to click it to feed it to Finn! This game is super fun and a great game for fans of the show!

These were just some of my favorites, but check out all of the games here!
